SORORITY RECRUITMENT PI CHIâ€™S WHAT IS A PI CHI? During the Recruitment week, Panhellenic counselors will be assigned to you and a small group of other potential new members. They are easily identifiable with their numbered binders, matching Pi Chi bags and shirts, and of course their friendly faces. Each of these women are prepared to assist you during the week. They will provide you with your party times and schedules and can answer any of your questions. Remember that these counselors are represented by all of the chapters that you are visiting throughout the week, and that they have disaffiliated themselves from their chapters in order to provide you with their unbiased advice, answer any of the questions you may have during the week, and reduce the pressure you may incur throughout the week. Please do not try to find out or pressure your Pi Chi into telling you her chapter affiliation. At the end of Recruitment week, the Pi Chis will reveal which chapter they belong to and rejoin their respective chapters on Bid Day.
