Brief: Sorority recruitment around the corner

Natalie Engler

Washburn University’s annual sorority recruitment is to be held Sept. 8-11. Washburn’s three major sororities – Alpha Phi, Delta Gamma, and Zeta Tau Alpha – will be recruiting new members. The sororities will be hosting multiple events throughout the weekend in an attempt to recruit new members for the 2016-2017 school year.

Panhellenic Council, the governing council for all sororities and fraternities on campus, will support Greek life’s weekend events by showing new recruits the goals of sororities: to support the community through academic standards, community development, recruitment and community service.

Orientation will be held from 7:00-9:30 p.m., in the Washburn Room in the Memorial Union on Thursday, Sept. 8. All sororities will be present to welcome potential pledges and current sisters.

From Friday, Sept. 9 through Sunday, Sept. 11, potential new members are invited to attend several events where they can meet with other members and ask questions about the sororities.

On the evening of Sunday, Sept. 11, sororities will begin placing bids on potential new members, after which the recruits can select the sorority to which they will pledge.
