Panhellenic sorority recruitment is a mutual selection process that is designed to give potential new members the chance to learn about the three sororities at Franklin College. It is an opportunity to meet sorority members, ask questions, define membership requirements and time commitment. Fall Formal Recruitment is intentionally timed several weeks into the semester to give new students a chance to adjust to Franklin College and their new academic challenges. All new students are encouraged to go through formal recruitment. There is no obligation to join an organization at the end of the process and it is a great way to meet a lot of new people!
Formal Recruitment occurs over the course of a week in early October. Each night of recruitment is different and offers potential new members the opportunity to interact with active members and learn more about each chapter. Between event rounds groups will have periods of downtime. During downtime light snacks and beverages are available and students may bring homework to do during this time.
During the week of recruitment all prospective women registered are divided into small groups that are lead by three Rho Gammas. Rho Gammas, or Recruitment Counselors, are women who have disassociated from their respective chapters and serve as your guide throughout the week. These women are chosen because of their leadership skills, enthusiasm for Greek Life and positive attitude. Rho Gammas serve as an objective and unbiased confidant who is your most knowledgeable resource about the recruitment process and Panhellenic community at Franklin College.
