AUBURN UNIVERSITY PANHELLENIC RECRUITMENT IS OPEN TO ALL ENROLLED AUBURN UNIVERSITY WOMEN REGARDLESS OF RACE, RELIGION, COLOR, AGE, NATIONAL ORIGIN, DISABILITY, OR VETERAN STATUS.
WHAT IS RECRUITMENT?
Recruitment consists of a series of informal par es that allow you to learn more about the Greek community, sorority life, and individual sorority members. It is a week to be entertained, laugh, sing, dance, and have fun! So ask ques ons, meet new people, and make memories! During the week, you will be assigned a Pi Chi and recruitment group. Through a process of mutual preference and selec on, sorori es select their new members and a poten al member may be invited to join a sorority. Even if you decide not to join, you will have already made friends and memories with your recruitment group.
WHAT DO SORORITIES LOOK FOR IN MEMBERS? When sorori es choose new members, they look for many diﬀerent characteris cs. They look for women who possess a variety of quali es, talents, interests, and abili es in order to form a diverse group in which each member benefits. Membership selec on is not an easy task. It varies from sorority to sorority, but each group has a process, based on na onal policy and chapter bylaws and enforced by alumnae advisors, to ensure that each poten al member is considered fairly. Panhellenic has no input in the membership selec on process or the things sorori es consider. Alumnae groups from each sorority also supply their chapter with informa on and references on poten al members. These references are standard forms which list general informa on about a poten al member. Sorori es are responsible for collec ng these. They then review all the informa on and try to familiarize themselves with the poten al member before recruitment begins. Actual membership selec on does not begin un l a er the par es are held. Throughout recruitment, sorority members will meet and visit with the poten al members only during scheduled par es. A er each round of par es, sorori es decide which women to invite back and poten al members decide which invita ons to accept. Some mes diﬃcul es arise for the potenal member at this point. A sorority she likes very much may not invite her back to the next round. Should this happen, the poten al member should not get discouraged. She should then give the other sorori es a chance because a poten al member can easily find a place where she will be equally happy. Finally, when par es are over, each chapter decides which women they would like to recruit. The criteria sorori es may use for membership selec on are previous academic performance, ac vi es and interests in high school or college, and personal interac on with sorority members during recruitment par es. A sorority not only has to choose individual members, but an en re new member class! The new group must have a well-rounded and balanced group of women.
HOW DO I MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION? The first step in making any decision is collec on informa on. During recruitment you collect informa on by a ending the par es. The par es give you an opportunity to observe each sorority and see what they have to oﬀer. The second step in the decision-making process is clarifying your personal opinions and feelings. During recruitment, it would be a good idea to take mental notes as you visit each sorority and think every night about how you feel about each group. The next thing to do is seriously deliberate. This will come when you are ready to make your preference choices. You will need to carefully consider both informa on you learned as well as your personal feelings. The recruitment decision-making process is a very important one! However, remember to keep things in perspec ve. Don’t forget your op ons. This decision may seem like the most important one of your life, but there really can be more than one correct choice! WILL ALL POTENTIAL MEMBERS PLEDGE AT THE END OF RECRUITMENT? Recruitment is a process of mutual selec on, both on the part of the poten al member and the sorority, and there are many diﬀerent outcomes of this process. A sorority may or may not select the individual, and an individual may or may not choose to join a sorority at all. Par cipa ng in recruitment does not guarantee that you will be asked to join a sorority nor does it obligate you to join one. It is possible that you may go through the en re week and not complete a preference agreement. WHAT IS SILENCE? Recruitment can be hec c, emo onal, and confusing. In order to prevent undue pressure on poten al members, silence is observed. Sorority women and poten al members may only communicate during par es and are limited to casual gree ngs in public. It is also recommended that poten al members do not talk to men, par cularly those in fraterni es, about recruitment. This is meant to protect, no inhibit, poten al members. By observing this silence, poten al members are given the opportunity to make decisions about their own preference with an open mind. Remember: sorority women will be strictly observing this policy during recruitment week. Please do not think they are ignoring you.
PANHELLENIC RECTRUITMENT 2013
Auburn University Panhellenic Recruitment is open to all enrolled Auburn University women regardless of race, religion, color, Auburn University Panhellenic is proud of our accomplishments as a community. Although we have had sorori es here since 1923, we did not have an oﬃcial Panhellenic Associa on un l September of 1929. We have received many Na onal Panhellenic Conference awards over the years, including excellence in academics, leadership, publica ons, community service, and recruitment. We are happy that you are interested in joining us as we celebrate our and 85th year on Auburn’s campus. In case you are not convinced that Auburn’s Panhellenic system can contribute to your collegiate experience, here are a few of the things on which we pride ourselves… We Help Others! We par cipate in countless hours of community service and par cipate yearly in Greek Week and Greek Sing to contribute to charitable organiza ons. We donate over 60,000 hours of community service annually as well as over $400,000 to a variety of philanthropies. We’re Smart! Panhellenic sorori es place a high emphasis on academics. Each sorority has a program to help its members succeed. Our GPA is consistently higher than the all-women’s GPA and a recent study showed that Auburn’s Greeks are more likely to graduate on me than those who aren’t Greek. We know you are at Auburn to learn! We’re Leaders! Greeks are involved in virtually every campus organiza on. Sorori es encourage their members to get involved on campus, and Greeks are o en the most visible campus leaders and the biggest supporters of university events. We Have Fun! Greek men and women maintain a balance between the classroom and personal me. Sisterhood retreats, formals, and parent’s weekend are just a few of the fun ac vi es. We Network! Sorority women are given networking opportuni es for job assistance and advice, internship exposure and experience, and general direc on when entering the workforce. Joining a sorority doesn’t limit your circle of friends, it enlarges it! We’re Not Rich! Many Panhellenic sorority members have part- me jobs, internships, work studies, and receive financial aid. We DON’T Haze! Hazing is prohibited. It is against the policy of each of the Panhellenic sorori es. It is against Auburn University Policy. It is against the law. It is strictly enforced, plain and simple! 3
SCHOLARSHIP, PHILANTHROPY, SISTERHOOD
Panhellenic stresses the importance of scholarship in sorority life. Although Greek life is full of fun and opportuni es, it is important to remember that educa on is the reason for being at Auburn. Scholarship is of great importance to all sorori es. As a result, the Greek Women’s Average GPA is consistently higher than the All Women’s Average. Based on the informa on given to Panhellenic, the minimum GPA to join any sorority varies from a 2.8-3.3. Once ini ated, a sister must maintain an average GPA to remain in a good standing with her sorority, which enables her to vote on important programs such as specified study hours, “study buddies”, test files to help prepare for exams, and tutoring programs to establish and promote outstanding scholarship. In addi on, sorority women play an ac ve role in the Honors College and honor sociees such as Phi Kappa Phi, Cardinal Key, and Mortar Board. Being ac ve in a sorority does not prevent you from becoming academically successful or involved on Auburn’s campus. Sorori es oﬀer support and help members reach their goals. For this reason, many Greek Women find the me to be ac ve in their sorority, par cipate in other organiza ons, and keep up their grades. Service is another important aspect of Panhellenic. One of the goals of Panhellenic is to give back to the Auburn community, as well as the campus. Panhellenic members help out with community-wide events like Auburn City Fest, the Special Olympics, and canned food drives. In addi on to the projects that the sorories par cipate in each Fall and Spring semester through Panhellenic, each individual sorority also has a philanthropy that it gives its me and energy to. In conjunc on with the other Greek councils, we also par cipate in all Greek events that benefit causes such as Habitat for Humanity. Sisterhood is one of the most valued experiences that come from joining a sorority. From Bid Day on, a variety of new, and some mes unexpected, friendships are made. These friends become a haven of support, encouragement, and joys as you go through your years of college and many will ul mately be friends that last a life me. Sorority life opens many doors to new friendships with sisters. You will have friends to go to athle c events, pep rallies, shop, or study with. Living on your sorority’s hall will be the best chance you have to get to know your sisters and foster your friendship. Your sorority sisters will also help you as you learn about campus organiza ons and prepare for the interviews and tryouts involved in joining them. Sorority formals and social events add a li le elegance to everyday college life. It is a fun way to spend me with sorority sisters in a diﬀerent se ng. A formal is the chance to get dressed up and spend a roman c evening with a dream date or maybe a friend that has been too shy to ask you out. It could also be the opportunity to meet a great date with the help of your sisters. Socials are informal themed events in which sorori es and fraterni es interact and make friends. Sorori es join together and hold date par es where members may invite any guy they choose, or join with fraterni es for swaps or socials. These social events o en have fun themes. O en the theme relates to a holiday or the me of the year. In addi on, sorori es also hold a Parent’s Weekend, so moms and dads can meet one another and learn about Auburn and sorority life. Other fun ac vi es include sisters-only events like movie nights and sisterhood retreats. 4
A MESSAGE FROM AUBURN’S DIRECTOR
OF GREEK LIFE Poten al Members, Congratula ons on your admission to Auburn University and thanks for your interest in our community! The seventeen Panhellenic sorori es oﬀer so much to their members by way of fun, friendship, and memories. The ac vi es our sorori es par cipate in help their members develop skills and abili es that will last a life me while contribu ng to our campus and community. Sorority members at Auburn who truly become involved with their chapters and on campus are taught valuable leadership skills that can benefit them throughout life. We are also proud that our members achieve academically. The Panhellenic GPA is consistently above the undergraduate women’s GPA and, in the spring of 2013, the average Panhellenic sorority member had a cumula ve GPA of 3.25 or be er. Each of our sorori es is special and equally wonderful. The best advice I can give you is to use this me to inves gate all of the unique aspects of each group. If you truly want to be a sorority member, you can find something excellent about each group at Auburn. This week, you should carefully think about each sorority and what it can oﬀer you as well as what you can bring to it. Hopefully, this week you will find your new home away from home. However, one thing that makes Auburn so great is that being a sorority member is not a prerequisite for involvement. So, if you decide that sorority membership is not for you, there are s ll many ways to get involved and make friends on campus. Remember that whether you join or not, you’re in for a great me here on the Plains. During and a er recruitment, the Greek Life Staﬀ, Panhellenic Oﬃcers, and your Pi Chi are here to help you, whether you join or not. Look for us in our recruitment shirts and name tags this week, and please let us know if we can assist you in any way. I wish you the best of luck as you begin your journey into sorority life.

RECRUITMENT EXECUTIVE BOARD
Along with the Panhellenic Execu ve Oﬃcers, the Recruitment Execu ve Board has been working hard to prepare for this year’s Recruitment. Like the Pi Chis, they have disaﬃliated from their sorori es un l bids are distributed. Throughout the week, they will be working hard to make things run smoothly, and will be available to answer your ques ons if you are unable to find your Pi Chi. There are seven women on Panhellenic cabinet, who along with the five members of the Panhellenic Execu ve Board, serve on the Recruitment Execu ve Board. The cabinet members of the Recruitment Execu ve Board include: Heather Henley Assistant Director of Recruitment Sidney Holt Head Pi Chi Mary Vondrak Assistant Head Pi Chi Lauren McCaghren Recruitment Handbook Editor Abbie Farr Head Computer Analyst Jillian Lieber Assistant Computer Analyst Gracie Thaxton Director of Con nuous Open Bidding
The Panhellenic Council at Auburn University is the unifying, coordina ng, and overseeing body of the seventeen na onal sorori es associated with the Na onal Panhellenic Conference (NPC) on campus. Although all sorority members are automa cally a part of the Panhellenic Associa on, the Panhellenic Council is composed of women from each sorority, who successfully run the Panhellenic community. Five elected execu ve oﬃcers, each sorority’s president, a delegate from each sorority, a new member from each sorority (known as the Junior Panhellenic Delegate), as well as appointed cabinet members, commi ees and advisors all serve together on the council. Panhellenic is an integral part of Auburn’s Greek community, and provides an outlet for numerous involvement opportuni es. The Panhellenic Associa on’s main objec ve is to enhance the college experience of its members through fostering friendships, leadership opportuni es, and personal growth. It is responsible for promo ng scholarship, philanthropy, and the safety and well-being of each sorority, as well as the Greek community as a whole. Panhellenic also provides ac vi es and programs on important issues aﬀec ng college students today, such as self-defense, drug and alcohol abuse, ea ng disorders, and date rape. In addi on, the Panhellenic Council works along with the Inter-fraternity Council and Na onal Pan-Hellenic Council to sponsor service ac vi es like Greek Week and Greek Sing, which respec vely raise money for the Sydney Gran Founda on and the Lee County Chapter of Habitat for Humanity. Finally, the Panhellenic Council oversees recruitment in order to make it a fun, memorable, and fair experience for you. Our council strives to help Auburn’s sorority women reach their fullest poten al. We work with each chapter to develop women in the areas of scholarship, leadership, friendship, and philanthropy. The success of the Auburn Panhellenic Associa on requires the support of each sorority, and therefore develops unity between the individual organiza ons, which helps to strengthen Panhellenic as a whole. 9
2013 PI CHIs
Recruitment can be an exci ng, hec c, and o en emo onal me. You will have a Pi Chi assigned to you and ten to fi een other poten al members to help you through the en re process. The term Pi Chi stands for Panhellenic Counselor. As a Pi Chi, she has been through an extensive training program to qualify her for this posi on. She is prepared to help you and can answer any ques ons you may have about recruitment. Your Pi Chi par cipated in recruitment as a poten al member and as a sorority member, so she is familiar with both sides of the recruitment process. The Pi Chis are working for the Panhellenic Council, and each has promised not to reveal her sorority aﬃlia on. Therefore, she can give you unbiased advice and reduce any pressure you may feel. Although it is some mes temping to know what sorority she belongs to, please do not ask her to tell you or make any eﬀorts to find out. She will reveal her sorority to you before bids are distributed. Your Pi Chi is a resource for you! But more importantly, she is an impar al listener. She will be your friend, who will share in your joys as well as your anxie es. While you will have a special rela onship with your own Pi Chi, all Pi Chis are there to help all poten al members, so you should feel comfortable approaching any Pi Chi for anything you might need. They will be prepared to help you with anything! Your Pi Chi and your recruitment group will help make your recruitment experience even more exci ng and enjoyable.
For the fairness of everyone involved, these rules will be strictly enforced. Inten onal viola ons of these rules can result in the violator’s release from recruitment. If you are not clear about what you are allowed to do, please do not hesitate to call and ask us.

CONTINUOUS OPEN BIDDING: Con nuous Open Bidding is commonly referred to as C.O.B. It is a period of informal recruitment that is held throughout Fall and Spring semesters.

SUGGESTIONS FOR RECRUITMENT 1.You will want to carry a purse or a tote bag to hold your essen als. A Pi Chi will watch these for you during recruitment par es. However, do not carry any valuables with you since Panhellenic will not be responsible for them if lost. 2.You may want to carry items like a pen, band-aids for blisters, mints, extra lips ck, powder, etc. In the Village, Panhellenic will have a central sta on with emergency items, should you need them or have a queson about your day. 3.You will need a small amount of cash on hand each day. There will be food trucks available in The Village during lunch breaks, and The Village Diner will also be open, You may want to carry change for a drink or snack. Your biggest expense during the week will be meals, because your Pi Chi may take your group out to eat each evening. 4.Do not chew gum during par es. It can be distrac ng to the person who is talking to you. 5.Carry an umbrella. The weather is o en unpredictable and it can help keep you out of the sun and the rain. You will have to walk outside to get to each of your par es. 6.Do not wear heavy fragrance. It can be powerful on a hot day in a crowded room. 7.Avoid high heels. You will be doing a lot of standing and walking, so you should bring comfortable shoes to wear between par es or a backup pair of shoes in case of blisters. 8.Look at each sorority as a whole-don’t judge it by the one member who was your hostess. 9.Ask ques ons– it not only helps the conversa on, but it is a sign of your interest. 10.Recruitment is mutual choosing– part of it is your choice and part is the choices of the sorori es. 11.Sorority members are just as nervous and anxious as you, if not more so. 12.Do not interpret any remark made at a party as assurance of an invita on back or a bid– a member has no way of knowing these things. 13.If you go to the wrong party by mistake or if you have any problems at all, find a Pi Chi immediately. Don’t get upset. Pi Chis can help with lots of things and sorori es are understanding. 14.All sorority members have been through recruitment themselves. Don’t be in midated. 15.Get plenty of sleep. You have all year to stay up late! 16.Do not discuss your feelings about a sorority or a certain party when you leave the party. Wait un l you are in the privacy of your room. 17.Almost every sorority requires a white dress and white shoes for formal pledging, ini a on, and other ritual ceremonies. If you have a white dress you should bring it in the Fall!
MAKE SURE TO: 1. Be yourself and have fun! 2. Be happy and smile! Even smile and look enthusias c as you wait to enter. 3. Be interested, regardless of whether you like the sorority or not. You will be remembered and you may decide you really like that sorority if and when you go to another party there. 4. Be polite. If you are not interested, you should be polite and thank your hostess. 5. Be mature in your decision-making. Be realis c about which members you feel most comfortable with. Don’t be influenced by others’ opinions. 12
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
DO I HAVE TO FOLLOW THE SCHEDULE AND ATTEND ALL OF THE PARTIES? Yes! The object of recruitment is to give yourself the informa on you need about the chapters in order for you to make the best decision; therefore, you must accept the maximum number of invita ons your schedule can accommodate. If you choose to miss pares or to accept fewer invita ons than you could a end, you can be released from recruitment.
IF I GO THROUGH RECRUITMENT, AM I OBLIGATED TO JOIN? No. This is a me to assess whether you wish to pledge a sorority. Many women par cipate in recruitment to make friends, to see why nearly 1/3 of the undergraduate women at Auburn have chosen to be involved in the Greek community, and what has kept sorority alumnae for years a er gradua on.
IS EVERY POTENTIAL NEW MEMBER INVITED TO EVERY ROUND OF RECRUITMENT? No. Unfortunately, there are occasions where a poten al member might reach a point when there are no invita ons for her. When this happens, her Pi Chi will speak with her as soon possible. That way, the poten al member will not come to the invita on acceptance mee ng. For this reason, you should always make sure that your Pi Chi knows where you are. You should speak with your Pi Chi now and let her know whether you would rather hear from her over the phone or face to face in such a circumstance.
ARE THERE GRADE REQUIREMENTS TO PARTICIPATE IN RECRUITMENT? There is no grade requirement to go through recruitment, but many individual sorori es have a minimum GPA requirement. Grade point averages vary from sorority to sorority, but begin at about 3.0. Each year, women who have GPAs lower than 3.0 do par cipate and many receive bids, but it is important to know that your chances of receiving a bid are significantly lessened is your grades are low.
I’M A LEGACY TO A SORORITY, IS THERE ANY‐ THING I SHOULD KNOW? Each poten al member is considered on an individual basis. Legacies are not obligated to join their mother’s, sister’s, or grandmother’s sorority. On the other hand, sorori es are not obligated to pledge a woman simply because she is a legacy. Both the poten al member and the chapters are looking for mutual compa bility, not a family connec on to the group.
I HEARD THAT SORORITIES HAVE VARIOUS REPUATIONS, HOW DO I HANDLE THIS INFORMATION? Sorority chapters are composed of many individuals with their own special quali es and talents which contribute to the en re group. When deciding about a chapter, the only opinion that ma ers is your own! If you allow someone else’s percep on to influence you, you will not be sa sfied with your choices in recruitment. Each chapter of a sorority is diﬀerent from campus to campus and from year to year. Remember that you are choosing a sisterhood, not a label. 13
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHERE WOULD I LIVE AS A SORORITY MEMBER? As a new member, you will con nue to live wherever you have already decided to live. Each sorority has a floor in a residence hall in the village where only members of that chapter live. Every sorority expects each member to live there for at least two semesters. Most sorority members live on their hall as a sophomore. It’s a lot of fun, and a great way to get to know your sorority sisters. Every sorority has a policy to ensure that their hall is full of members, so learn about this policy as a new member. Then, don’t sign a lease for the next year un l you are certain that you are not required to live on the hall.
HOW DO SOME SORORITIES DECIDE WHO TO INVITE BACK? As your schedule of par es shrinks each round, so does the number of girls each chapter is allowed to invite back. Every poten al member has something to oﬀer a group, but each group must release potenal members, just as you may need to regret some chapter invita ons. Each chapter uses a demographic process, considering the thoughts of each undergraduate member of the chapter. Every sorority has a diﬀerent way of choosing who to invite, but they all have Alumnae advisors present at all mee ngs to ensure that the policies are correctly followed and fair considera on is given to all poten al members.
I HAVE HEARD THAT SORORITIES HAZE THEIR MEMBERS ‐ IS THIS TRUE? Auburn has a No Hazing Policy that prohibits all forms of hazing. It is also against the law. Each sorority makes the safety and well being of its members a top priority.
WHAT IF I WANT TO TURN DOWN A BID I RECEIVE? If you receive a bid and decide not to accept it, you may not par cipate in recruitment for one calendar year, and you may not par cipate in Con nuous Open Bidding. We urge you to think very carefully before turning down a bid. Emo ons have a tendency to cloud thinking and judgment. Turning in a bid one week a er Bid Day puts you in the same posi on as if you turn it down immediately, so it’s worth at least a ending the chapter’s Bid Day fes vi es before deciding not to join. Please give yourself and the sorority a chance to prove you made the right choice.
HOW DO I DECIDE WHICH GROUPS I PREFER? Each poten al member will have a diﬀerent experience in each group, depending on who she meets and her personal preferences and personality. Ask yourself a few ques ons as you par cipate in recruitment: Are the members people you can truly feel are your sisters? Are the goals of the organiza on similar to your own? A sorority should be a second home. The answers to your ques ons should guide you to the right group for you. Your Pi Chi will be of great help in sor ng out what works best for you.
IF I WITHDRAW FROM RECRUITMENT, CAN I DECIDE TO JOIN LATER? Yes. You can wait un l the next year for formal recruitment, or you can try to join through Con nuous Open Bidding. 14

RECRUITMENT KICKOFF On August 11th in the Student Center Ballroom, there will be two recruitment kickoﬀ sessions. Your Pi Chi will inform you of which session you will a end. This mee ng will be very casual and will only last about forty-five minutes. You will receive valuable informa on about the recruitment week and will meet the other women in your Pi Chi group for the first me. It is a great way to get the week started on a posi ve note!
LIFE AS A FIRST YEAR MEMBER
Once a woman has accepted a bid from a sorority, she is thrust into the whirlwind of Greek life. Soon a er Bid Day, she is invited to a formal pledging ceremony, for which she is expected to wear a white dress and white shoes. Once a woman has formally pledged, she will not be allowed to join another sorority on campus for one full calendar year. During the semester she may receive a “study buddy” to help her with classes, and a “big sister” to help her with nearly everything else. She will be expected to a end weekly new member mee ngs. Socials, pep rallies, and formals will become a part of her life. In addi on to the fun and excitement of sorority ac vi es, the new member period will be an orientaon me. Before a new member can be ini ated, she must fulfill the sorority’s new member requirements, such as learning the sorority’s history, purposes, and goals, and in some cases obtaining a specific grade point average. A new member is expected to a end sorority func ons and to contribute her me and talents to making her chapter a success. She will represent her sorority to other people and is expected to maintain the high standards which her sorority has established.
An important considera on in deciding to join a sorority should be whether or not you are able to fulfill the financial responsibili es. Both you and your parents should be aware of the fees, dues, and other expenses. Each sorority charges a new member fee when you first join. A er ini a on, you will be charged an ini a on fee. As your membership con nues, you will pay monthly or semester dues throughout your college career. The cost of “extras”, such as t-shirts, pictures, jewelry, and sta onary varies with each individual. Although you are not required to purchase any of these things, most women choose to do so. A photographer will be present at most sorority events, and t-shirts and other items will be available for purchase.

ICE WATER TEAS AUGUST 12-13
WHAT TO EXPECT: There are seventeen sorori es par cipa ng in Ice Water Teas. They are spread over two days. The purpose of this round of par es is to introduce you to our Greek community. You will visit each sorority and be served iced water. One woman will meet you at the door, and act as your hostess while you are visi ng her chapter. During this phase, you will visit each sorority for twenty-five minutes. You may feel a li le overwhelmed because the pace of these two days is so fast, but don’t be in mated. These two days are meant to be high energy and may include music, singing and clapping, and cheering. Each sorority has something unique and wonderful to oﬀer, so be sure to approach each one with an open mind.
WHAT TO WEAR: You should dress casually and comfortably. Wear clothing that is suitable for hot weather, such as a sundress, skirt, or capri pants. While it is comfortable, it is also important for you to look your best, so please do not wear shorts or t-shirts. You will be outside in the sun in between par es, so cool, lightweight materials such as co on are recommended. You will do a great deal of walking and standing, so wear low-heeled shoes or comfortable sandals. If you prefer to wear highheeled shoes, you may want to bring more comfortable ones to wear in between par es.
WHAT TO TALK ABOUT: Don’t worry if you don’t have me for in-depth conversa ons. Don’t be afraid to ask your hostess ques ons about her sorority or Greek life in general. Be sure to tell her about yourself as well. Each sorority wants to get to know as much about you as possible. Also, be careful of first impressions; they can be misleading. Remember that the par es are short, so if you feel you need another look to decide, take it. Most importantly, have fun and be yourself! Remember, the sorori es want you to like them as much as you want them to like you! 18
PHILANTHROPY AUGUST 14-15
WHAT TO EXPECT: Panhellenic is proud to have philanthropy round as an Auburn tradi on. Community service is an important aspect of each sorority and Panhellenic as a whole. Therefore, this round, which is spread over two days, is an important part of recruitment. On these days, you may visit up to twelve sorori es for thirty-five minutes each. Again, you will be served iced water at each party. At each sorority you visit, you will work on a project that pertains to that sorority’s individual philanthropy. The sorori es will then donate the completed projects to their philanthropies. Not only will you be learning about the sorority in a fun and interac ve way, but you will be making a contribu on to the community. The projects you par cipate in will help define the sorori es, so that they will be more easily dis nguishable. WHAT TO WEAR: To add to the fun of these days, you will be casual and comfortable. Shorts or skirts that are appropriate to sit on the floor in will be fine. Panhellenic will provide you with a t-shirt to wear for this round. Your Pi Chi will give you your t-shirt at your first mee ng. This is a great opportunity to wear your comfy tennis shoes or casual sandals.
WHAT TO TALK ABOUT: Service and giving to others is the theme of philanthropy round. Talk about the project you are making and how it will benefit the chosen philanthropy. Ask your hostess about other projects that the sorority par cipates in throughout the year. This is also a good me to ask about anything that you did not get a chance to learn about during Ice Water Teas. These days are a fun chance to talk more in depth with the sorority women while you work to help others. 19
SKIT DAY AUGUST 16
WHAT TO EXPECT: The entertainment atmosphere during this round of par es makes it a favorite part of recruitment. You may visit as many as seven sorori es on this day for fi y minutes each. You will again have a hostess who will introduce you to other members. The sorori es will con nue to reveal their individual personali es with skits and presenta ons. This is the day when sorori es may also present a slide show of their members enjoying diﬀerent Auburn and Greek ac vi es. Since this is the last day before preferen al, you should start thinking about which sorority might be your best home away from home.
WHAT TO WEAR: A dress suitable for church or a nice dinner is recommended. Most women dress up their look a li le more in this round.
WHAT TO TALK ABOUT: This round is a special me to communicate. Conversa on is longer, more meaningful, and more in-depth. You should be looking for certain a ributes you want in your sorority and your sorority sisters. Scholarship, sincerity, friendliness, and adaptability are all strong a ributes that are emphasized in this round. Since this day is a chance for the sorori es to boast about themselves and their accomplishments, listen carefully to decide if the achievements and ac vi es they speak of are also important aspects of your college goals. Ask the hostess about her sorority and use this informa on to help narrow your choice of which sorori es could be right for you. 20
PREFERENCE DAY AUGUST 17
WHAT TO EXPECT: Preference Day is the most serious day of recruitment. You may visit three sorori es for forty-five minutes each. At each sorority, you might be greeted by one member who has been a special friend to you during the week. This round can be the most emo onal step of the sorority recruitment process, because it is during prefs that must decide which sorority you would like to be a part of. The par es are usually serious and subdued. During prefs, think back on the previous rounds and recall what you liked best about each sorority. This will help you form a complete impression of the sorori es, and help you to decide where you feel most comfortable. The important thing to do is to be sure you base your decision on YOUR OWN feelings.
WHAT TO WEAR: This is the dressiest round of all. A dress you might wear to formal church or a wedding recep on will be appropriate. If you are comfortable in heels, you may wish to wear them since you will only be a ending a maximum of three par es. Black is a common color to wear during this round. Research from 2012 states that a majority of girls on preference round wore black dresses; however, girls who wore a colored dress were 5% more likely to join the sorority listed as their first choice. So wear what you want!
WHAT TO TALK ABOUT: Your hostess may talk privately with you about your feelings toward the sorority and answer any final quesons you may have. During this me, you should listen carefully to what the sorority women tell you about the ideals of sisterhood. Listen to what they say. These women are revealing to you the character of their sorority. These women want you to know that their sorority means to them and what it could mean to you.
BID DAY AUGUST 18
THE END OF RECRUITMENT WEEK IS BID DAY! This is the day that invita ons to join a sorority are distributed. Those who receive an invita on to join a sorority and accept it will be welcomed with open arms by their new sisters. Bid Day is a me for fun, entertainment, pictures, and seeing friends you made during recruitment. Once bids are distributed, each sorority’s new members will go to their sorority’s chapter room for a recep on and other ac vi es planned by your sorority. Your families are welcome to a end with you. You will be greeted by an older member, who will host you as a “big sister” throughout the rest of the day’s ac vi es. You will be expected to stay or return to the chapter room that night in order to spend me with your new sisters and become be er acquainted with your pledge class. Once bids are distributed, con nuous open bidding begins. 22
PREPARATION FOR PREFERENCE ROUND
PREPARING FOR PREFERENCE ROUND: List each of the chapters you will visit for preference. Read each statement below as it relates to each sorority, and decide whether your response to that statement would be “yes”, “no”, or “not sure”. 1. I would be happy to par cipate in this chapter’s philanthropy because it is interes ng to me. 2. I would be happy to par cipate in this chapter’s ac vi es on campus. 3. This sorority seems genuinely interested in having me as a member. 4. This sorority seems open to listening to the ideas of its members and willing to discuss important issues. 5. This sorority has members that share my recrea onal and leisure ac vi es. 6. This sorority has members with the same academic interests as me and would help me keep up with my studies. 7. The amount of me that I would be required to spend par cipa ng in chapter ac vi es is reasonable. 8. This sorority has an environment that I believe will encourage me to develop my talents as well as my new skills. 9. I feel comfortable talking with the members of this sorority about things that are important to me. 10. This sorority seems like a group that would support me as I progress all of the way through college. 11. I can be myself when I am with the members of this sorority. 12. The members of this sorority seem to like one another, and I think I would fit in well there. 13. Being a member of this sorority can posi vely contribute to my college experience. 14. I have quali es that would make me an asset to this sorority. 15. At this point, I think I would like to be a member of this sorority. If almost all of your answers about a par cular sorority are “yes”, it is likely that you are thinking seriously about the sorority. Obviously, your feelings about that sorority are posi ve, and it’s likely that you would thoroughly enjoy being a life me member of that sorority. If you answered “no” to several of the statements about a par cular sorority, you might want to give some thought as to whether or not long-term membership with that chapter (or any chapter) would be sa sfying to you. In general, if your feelings about at least some aspects of the chapter are somewhat nega ve, this may cause you not to be truly happy as a member there. If you think you want to talk about this with someone, please grab your Pi Chi (or any Pi Chi), or a Recruitment Execu ve Board member to discuss your concerns. If you chose “not sure” as an answer for any sorority, these are things you s ll need more informa on on. Use these ques ons as a guide for some ques ons to ask as you a end the preference party of that sorority.
DECISION MAKING Having trouble deciding which chapters you would most like to join? Trying to decide whether or not you want to remain in recruitment? Use some of the following exercises to help you with your decisions... AFTER ICE WATER TEAS ARE OVER: 1. At which sorority or sorori es did you feel the most comfortable? Why? 2. At which sorori es did you get to discuss things that are most important to you? 3. List some quali es about yourself that would be an asset to a sorority. 4. For a minute, let’s assume that you don’t receive an invita on from your favorite chapters. We’d like you to focus on the three sorori es that currently give you the least posi ve feelings. List those on a separate sheet of paper. Next to each one, write down the people there who you liked, the a tudes they had, and the ways the chapter was able to make a posi ve impression on you. 5. It is possible that you will not receive every invita on you desire. What will you do if this happens? You might want to discuss this possibility with your Pi Chi. 6. Make a list of ques ons that you s ll have related to sorority membership. Plan to ask those at your par es tomorrow. AFTER PHILANTHROPY ROUND IS OVER: 1. Make a list of the quali es you admire in your closest friends. Now, make a list of the sorori es you visited today. Decide whether you feel most of those quali es are exhibited by each chapter you a ended. Which ones stand out to you? 2. For a minute, let’s assume that you don’t receive an invita on from your favorite chapters. We’d like you to focus on the three sorori es that currently give you the least posi ve feelings. List those on a separate piece of paper. Also, make a list of the good things you were able to no ce about the sorority as well as the people you liked there. AFTER SKIT DAY IS OVER: 1. List the skills and abili es you have that you would like to share with a sorority. In which chapters do you think these could be u lized? 2. For a minute, let’s assume that you don’t receive an invita on from your favorite chapters. We’d like you to focus on the three sorori es that currently give you the most posi ve feelings.

WHERE TO PARK
CAMPUS RESIDENTS: If you are living on campus, please follow the parking instruc ons that were provided to you with your Move-in Mania informa on. If you are in the Village, recruitment events are just a short walk away. Hill and Quad residents are close enough to walk, but can ride the shu les that we provide. If you are on the Hill and need to use a shu le, wait at the bus shelter in front of Terrell Hall near Boyd Hall and Sasne Hall. Quad residents who want to ride the shu le to the Hill should wait to be picked up at the bus stop located behind Glenn Hall in the Lower Quad. This stop is on the corner of Mell and Roosevelt and is near the Science Center. OFF‐CAMPUS RESIDENTS: Oﬀ-campus residents should park in the RO-zone lot at the end of West Thach. As long as you are in a marked space (not an A, B, or handicapped space) that is not reserved for the band students, you should not get a cket. This is near the rugby field and the only parking lot that will be serviced by our shu les, so don’t park in the lots nearer to the Coliseum or the Arena if you want to ride the shu le. Those lots will be used by the sorority members. BID DAY PARKING: On Bid Day, all sorority members and new members will spend a lot of me in the Village. The families and friends of many sorority members and new members will visit for the celebra on. There will be many other ac vi es on this day as well, including Welcome Week. It is a weekend day, meaning that zone parking for A, B, and C lots will not be monitored. But, people should s ll not park in handicapped spots or anywhere that is not an actual spot. The best bet to find parking for this day will s ll be the RO lots at the end of West Thach.
DO NOT PARK
IN A OR B ZONE SPACES: The parking monitors will be watching. Cars parked illegally will be cketed or towed. ALONG ANY STREETS: Unless it is a clearly marked C-zone spot (there are very few), don’t park on the street. AT THE MEDICAL CENTER: Those spaces are for people sick enough to need a doctor’s visit. Please don’t inconvenience them. That lot will be monitored and anyone parking there for any reason other than a doctor’s visit will be towed. AT FRATERNITY HOUSES: There are a few fraternity houses near the Village, but they are not for public parking. IN THE LOTS ADJACENT TO THE VILLAGE: Unless you have a pass to park there, those lots are oﬀ limits to you. ON THE GRASS: If you are running late, you might be tempted to leave your car on a curb or on a grassy area. If you leave your car somewhere that is not a clearly marked space, do not expect it to be there when you come back.
To help alleviate some of the parking conges on, as well as add convenience to your recruitment experience, we will have shu le buses available at key mes during the recruitment week. If you plan to ride the shu le, you should be at your stop at least 30 minutes before you need to be somewhere. The buses will only drop oﬀ and pick up at their designated stops, so if you want to ride a bus from a certain loca on, you need to go to that loca on’s designated stop. Please remember that our Panhellenic shu les only run at designated mes and only to designated stops. Those stops are (1) Hill residence halls (2) Quad residence halls (3) the C-zone lot where oﬀ-campus residents will meet (4) the Village. The schedule is on the back cover of the handbook. **IF IT IS DARK AND YOU NEED A RIDE TO OR FROM YOUR CAR, CALL THE SECURITY SHUTTLE AT (334) 844-4700**
