Potential New Member Tips to Remember

  • Recruitment is a busy time! Please remember to take time for yourself during this process.
  • It might be easy to get the four chapters confused, so jot down some notes on the pages provided in your Recruitment Guide book to help organize your thoughts.
  • Your Rho Gamma is ALWAYS here for you and wants to make sure you have the best experience possible. She welcomes and questions and concerns you may have about the recruitment and being Greek. Feel free to talk to her at any time if you need (or want) her advice.
  • Approach recruitment with a positive attitude! Each chapter wants to get to know you as much as you want to get to know them. Just remember to be yourself!
  • Keep an open mind when you are visiting the chapters. This will give you the opportunity to look objectively at each chapter and what it has to offer.
  • Make the decision that is right for you! It it easy to listen to our friends, relatives, or other recruitment guests; however, their opinion is just that, an opinion. Recruitment s a time for you to explore each chapter and make the decision as to which chapter fits YOU best. Choose the sorority that you feel most comfortable with, one that can meet your needs, and one to which you could most actively contribute.
  • Have FUN and take this time to meet new people!
