What is a Recruitment Event?

The Mutual Selection Process

What is a Recruitment Counselor?

Our recruitment is about a week long, beginning Thursday, September 1st and concluding Sunday, September 11th. You will begin the process by attending an orientation to become acclimated to the process and gain more general knowledge about the process. You will then attend three nights of events with the sororities where you will learn more about their organizations. The next night you will attend a preference round event in which you will participate in an open ritual with the organization(s). On the final day, Bid Day, you will be extended a bid to join a sorority and will spend the day with your new sorority family.

The mutual selection process is the process that is used to place you in a sorority. When you go through recruitment, it is inevitable that you will feel a stronger connection with some organizations than you will with others. The organizations will also feel stronger connections with some potential new members than they will with others. This is not meant to be mean or cliquey, it is simply meant to ensure that you are in a sorority that you click with, that clicks with you as well. On some nights of recruitment, you will be ranking the sororities based upon which you would most prefer to join. The sororities will also be ranking potential new members based on who they would most like to join their organization. By Bid Day, you will be matched with a sorority where there is a mutual connection. Ultimately, this sorority is the best fit for you.

A recruitment event will be a night & day occurrence during the week of recruitment. Each night your recruitment counselor will give you your schedule of events for that night. You will then attend the events. At each event you will have the opportunity to meet some women in each organization. Every round of recruitment the event will be focused on educating you about something different about the sorority.

Your recruitment counselor is there to serve as your guide throughout the recruitment process. She is an initiated sister in a sorority who will hide her affiliation until Bid Day in order to give you the most unbiased advice possible. She is there to guide you to the sorority that is the best fit for you. Once your recruitment counselor contacts you, you will be in contact with each other regularly. She will send you reminders about recruitment and she will promote friendship among the other women in your group. There will be about twenty other potential new members in your recruitment counselor group. Depending on when you register for recruitment, you may have opportunities to get to know your recruitment counselor and the other women in your group before recruitment begins.

Recruitment Guides

RUMORS

Recruitment Contact

Before recruitment begins, you may be contacted by sorority women. The sorority women will be in the FAU breezeway frequently promoting their organizations and you may have classes with them. It is encouraged that you talk to them and get to know them. However, there are some things that should not occur when you are in contact with sorority women. They cannot promise you a bid. For example, if you get to know a woman in a sorority and she says something like, “Well, I like you so my sisters are going to. You’ll definitely join our sorority!” or “When you join my sorority I want you to be my little!”, these things are not allowed. These ultimately put you, the potential new member, at a disadvantage because you don’t truly get to view all the organizations with an open mind. Please contact Spring Rosado at the OFFICE OF FRATERNITY & SORORITY LIFE (561) 297-1245 if these things happen to you. For general recruitment questions, contact your recruitment counselor. If you need to reach someone for general questions, emergencies, contact Nicole Beauchamp or Sofia Gonzalez.

Rumors can be an unfortunate occurrence during sorority recruitment. It is not looked upon highly for a PNM to start/spread rumors about women or organizations. Sorority women should not to spread rumors to PNMs during recruitment week. If a woman tells you a rumor during an event, please let your recruitment counselor know immediately.

Anti-Hazing Policy

Hazing, in any form, is absolutely not allowed at Florida Atlantic University. Hazing is defined as any action or situation, with or without consent, which recklessly, intentionally or unintentionally, endangers the mental or physical health or safety of a student, or creates risk of injury, or causes discomfort, embarrassment, harassment, or ridicule, or which willfully destroys or removes public or private property for the purpose of initiation or admission into or affiliation with or as a condition for continued membership in a chapter or colony of an NPC member fraternity. Hazing is a felony in the state of Florida. Wanting to be hazed is not a defense, this would actually make you guilty of hazing as well. Hazing is against the FAU Student Code of Conduct and is taken extremely seriously. If you ever feel that you are being hazed, or see hazing occur, contact our The Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life immediately.

Recruitment Tips

WHEN CHOOSING A Sorority, THERE ARE SOME IMPORTANT THINGS TO THINK ABOUT. JOINING A SORORITY IS NOT MERELY A COMMITMENT FOR YOUR COLLEGE YEARS, BUT A LIFELONG COMMITMENT. SOME THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND AND CONSIDER ARE: What to Bring? Comfort Do you feel comfortable with the women in the sorority? These are women you will be spending lots of time with, so you want to be comfortable with them. You should be able to imagine yourself hanging out with at least a few members outside of sorority activities.

Friends

Avoid choosing a sorority just because your friend likes it. If you and your friends all end up in different sororities, you will remain friends. In our sorority community, we make it a point to have friends in other organizations. You and your friend may have a lot in common, but the decision ultimately must be for you in order for you to be happy with it.

Common Goals

You’ll be spending a lot of time with your sorority sisters and it’s important to carefully consider whether the organization correlates with your lifestyle, social preferences, academic goals, and values.

Shared Values

When choosing a sorority make sure you think about what their values are and if these match yours. This will help you connect with the sorority and feel that you have made the right choice.

10

During some nights of recruitment you will have free time when you are waiting between events. Since recruitment takes place during the semester, many women bring homework with them. While you are in an event, you will not be permitted to bring anything with you. This being said, we advise you to pack light. If you bring a purse, cell phone, etc. they will be safely guarded by your recruitment counselor and the recruitment staff. Ultimately we are NOT responsible for any stoles/lost items. You can bring a good book or magazine to read during your break between events. Your recruitment counselor will also have activities prepared for you as well. Phones and any electronic items are strongly suggested to be kept at home. You will not be allowed to have those on you at any times.

IN ORDER FOR YOU TO HAVE A SUCCESSFUL RECRUITMENT YOU SHOULD... Arrive to all nights 45 minutes early Dress comfortably Stay hydrated & eat regularly Get plenty of sleep If you are confused about anything, ask you Recruitment Counselor Avoid any type of gossip Always be polite and thank your host Look at each organization as a whole - don’t judge it by just one or a few members Be mature & make your own decisions Be courteous to your Recruitment Counselor group Most importantly,

be yourself!

Financial Responsibilty It is important for students and parents to be as imformal as possible regarding to costs associated with obtaining a college education. Understanding the financial obligations associated with sorority membership is just important. During Formal Recruitment you should ask sosority members about financial obligations and payment options.

How To Choose The Best Sorority For You >> >> >> >> >> >> >> >> >> >>

Choose a sorority in which you can see yourself hanging out with members in your free time, not just at sorority events Ignore gossip sites that rank fraternities and sororities. They are inaccurate and what sorority is best for you depends on YOU. Ignore rumors. Don’t rule out organizations before you meet them. Make a decision on what you think feels right. Learn all you can about each organization every night of recruitment. Prepare yourself for each night. Simply reflect on your likes, activities, hobbies, etc. so you’re prepared to talk about them. Trust your Recruitment Counselor and your own instincts. Befriend your Recruitment Counselor and other women in your Recruitment Counselor group. Be as friendly as you can be (without being fake).

Questions You Should Ask!

Anything! If ever you don’t understand something, are feeling stressed, are confused, aren’t sure about an outfit, etc. your recruitment counselor is there to help! Asking questions can be helpful to gain more knowledge about an organization and to show interest. Some questions to ask include: WHAT DO YOU VALUE ABOUT YOUR SORORITY? WHAT OPPORTUNITIES ARE THERE FOR NEW MEMBERS TO SERVE IN LEADERSHIP POSITIONS? WHAT DOES YOUR NEW MEMBER PROGRAM LOOK LIKE? WHAT KIND OF SISTERHOOD EVENTS DO YOU HAVE? ARE DUES ALL-INCLUSIVE? WHAT IS EXPECTED OF ME ACADEMICALLY? WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR IN A MEMBER? WHY DID YOU JOIN YOUR SORORITY? HOW HAS YOUR MEMBERSHIP IMPACTED YOUR COLLEGE EXPERIENCE?
