Our Recruitment Advice


  1. Keep chapstick or lipgloss in your coat pocket! I’d stay away from anything colored because that could be distracting & would require a mirror to reapply.

  2. Consider bringing a blanket to wrap around yourself when you have to stand in the cold without your coats. It’s really easy to chuck to the side once the sorority house opens their doors.

  3. The houses get really really REALLY warm during the rounds, so despite how cold it is outside try not to wear heavy clothing or too many layers.

  4. Picking your outfits can be stressful, but dress however you feel your best. As long as you look put together you’ll be fine.

  5. Chapstick, Chapstick, Chapstick. It’s cold and you’re doing a lot of talking… you’re going to need it!

  6. Relax, it’s supposed to be fun. When else do you get to meet so many uniquely interesting and fun people in one week?

  7. It’s hard to believe and listen to the Pi Chi’s when they tell you to “trust the system,” but I learned that they’re SO right. Everything truly happens for a reason and falls into place in the end. Don’t be anxious and just go with the flow throughout the long days. Follow your heart!

  8.  Drink lots of tea at night…your throat will need it from all the chatting!

  9. Make sure you have dinner plans set: whether it’s a frozen dinner ready to heat up or Dominos on speed dial. You’re not going to want to leave campus after the days are done because you’ll most likely be tired and cold.

  10. If you’re ordering takeout for dinner with your roomies, know what you want before you leave in the morning and have the first person who gets home order for everyone. That way you don’t all have to wait for the last person to get home before ordering!

  11. DO NOT talk to your friends about your opinions on any of the sororities. This was the best advice I got. Recruitment is a very personal, individual process so just talk about other things instead!

  12. Watch where the Pi Chis put your jacket so you can easily find it after rounds!
