Sororities recruit on campus

Fall sorority recruitment is right around the corner and the chapters on NSU’s campus have been working hard to get ready for recruitment week.

“Delta Zeta has workshops and preparation days throughout the year to get ready for recruitment,” said Mady Bush, Delta Zeta recruitment chair. “Recruitment is always such a fun part of the year, but also jam packed.”

The women of Alpha Omicron Pi, Delta Zeta and Sigma Sigma Sigma are all working endless hours to ensure a well-rounded recruitment process this year for all potential new members for their organizations.

The Panhellenic board has been putting on multiple events for women to attend to try and get to know the chapters.  Previously there was the All Greek Tailgate and Fun in the Sun. These are both events where anyone who has questions about Greek Life can come and talk to members of the organizations.

“The recruitment events hosted by Panhellenic have been wonderful this year,” said Bush. “I love that they give us the opportunity to promote Greek Life as a whole and meet so many girls. Recruitment is all about relationships, so it has been fun getting to make new friendships and memories.”

Rachel Hiatt, PanHellenic recruitment chair, is in charge of planning all of the recruitment events and also makes sure all the women who are interested in Greek Life get signed up and in the best organization that fits them.

“Women should go through recruitment because it is a good way to get involved on campus and to meet new people,” said Hiatt. “Joining a sorority also helps you grow as a person. You have all of these other amazing ladies encouraging you to the best version of yourself and are always there when you need someone. They hold you accountable and push you to grow as a person.”

One thing Hiatt wanted to encourage all potential new members to get out of their box and try new things.

“The worst that could happen is that you sign up and go through, get two shirts and meet lots of girls, and then decide that it might not be your thing,” said Hiatt. “You'll still have the experience and all the friendships.”

The application to apply for recruitment closes Sept. 3.

“We're on track to be right at the same amount of women as last year, or even above,” said Kristi Norris, coordinator for fraternity and sorority life.

Last year, around 160 women found their home in a Greek organization on NSU’s campus. Once a woman signs up for recruitment and pays the $40 fee, they get two shirts that they will wear to the first two nights of recruitment.

Recruitment dates are Sept. 6-9.
