At one of the largest universities in the nation, getting involved is vital to making ASU feel like a home. By getting involved in Greek Life you are joining one of the strongest traditions on campus. Panhellenic sorority women at ASU are able to successfully balance campus involvement, community service, social lives, and most importantly, academics. Every sorority is unique, having its own rituals and traditions. Yet, we are all bonded together by a common theme; we are all Greek. Panhellenic Recruitment is one of the most rewarding experiences you will have. It is a weekend where you learn about the sororities we have on campus, and find where you would best fit in. One of the KRISTEN ALEXANDER features of Recruitment is that you will also be Vice President of Scholarship and Academics able to meet hundreds of women who are new ALEX LUKANOWSKI to ASU. Hopefully, you will be able to build Vice President of Public Relations friendships with these women that will last throughout your entire time at ASU. By the end of the weekend you will be exhausted, but I promise that you will feel fulfilled. SHAY McGRADY Vice President of Educational Development Through my Greek affiliation I have made lifelong friends. I have friends within my own chapter, as well as in other chapters. I have also been able to expand my leadership skills, as well as interact with other leaders on campus. My sorority affiliation has helped shape me into the woman I am today. It is an experience that I will hold dear to my heart for the rest of my life. I encourage you to take full advantage of the opportunities that lie before you. The benefits of joining a Panhellenic sorority will be with you for life. I hope that you too will come to love Greek Life as much as I do. If you have any questions, please contact me at [email protected] I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU IN THE FALL! Sincerely, Kimberly Taylor Vice President of Membership http://asu.mycampusdirector.com/register 2 Letter T O PA R E N T S CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR DAUGHTER’S DECISION TO PARTICIPATE IN ASU’S 2012 PANHELLENIC SORORITY RECRUITMENT WEEK! Your daughter is about to begin a weekend that will be full of activities. Comfortable shoes, lots of rest, drinking plenty of water and remembering to eat are essential! Please encourage your daughter to come to Recruitment with an open mind. She may have heard stories about each of the chapters, be a legacy to one or more sororities, or have made the decision with a best friend to pledge the same sorority no matter what. These situations have the potential for creating disappointment, so please let your daughter know the importance of making decisions based on facts and on the women she meets in each sorority chapter. She’ll be the one living with members for the next few years, so she should look for women she likes, and a place where she feels comfortable. Sororities require both a financial and time commitment. Sorority dues range from $500-$900 per semester. The variation in expenses is due to the fact that some groups can assess for events and t-shirts while other groups cannot. There are also one-time fees associated with sorority membership. These include new member fees to headquarters, initiation fees, and housing fund fees. Your daughter should ask each sorority about these financial obligations. Your daughter should also ask about the time commitment of being in a sorority. While being a member of a sorority does involve a time commitment, many of our sorority women are able maintain part-time jobs, full-time school, and still have an amazing sorority experience. The Panhellenic sororities are housed in Adelphi Commons. Opportunities to live in Adelphi Commons vary by chapter and are something your daughter should ask about during Recruitment. All chapters have a requirement to live in Adelphi Commons. Adelphi Commons is located on campus. In the event that your daughter chooses not to join a sorority or is unhappy with her experience, please be supportive. Help her realize that there are many other options for involvement at Arizona State University. No matter what the outcome of Recruitment Week, she will have met many new people. Your daughter will be assigned to a Panhellenic Ambassador at Recruitment Orientation on August 30. The Panhellenic Ambassador will guide her through the Recruitment process. She should direct any questions she has about Recruitment to her Recruitment Counselor. Should you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me. I am more than happy to address any questions or concerns you may have. I can be reached at 480.965.2275 or [email protected] Sincerely, Lara Klinkner Coordinator s Fraternity & Sorority Life 3 Table of CONTENTS 2 Great Women Go Greek! 11 Formal Panhellenic Recruitment 3 Letter to Parents 12 Recruitment Schedule 5 Panhellenic Creed s Greek Alphabet 13 Panhellenic Recruitment Attire 14 Tips for Potential New Members 15 Alpha Chi Omega sAlpha Delta Pi sAlpha Gamma Delta 16 Alpha Phi sChi Omega s Delta Gamma 6 7 Panhellenic Council Sorority Life It’s All Greek to Me 8 Sisterhood sScholarship 9 Leadership sCommunity Service sHousing 17 Delta Zeta sGamma Phi Beta s Kappa Alpha Theta Financial Obligations s Hazing 18 Kappa Kappa Gamma sPi Beta Phi s Sigma Kappa 19 Omega Phi Alpha s Community Traditions 20 Greek Awards 2011 s Looking for Other Ways to Get Involved? 10 4 Panhellenic CREED WE, AS UNDERGRADUATE MEMBERS OF WOMEN’S FRATERNITIES, STAND FOR GOOD SCHOLARSHIP, FOR GUARDING OF GOOD HEALTH, FOR MAINTENANCE OF FINE STANDARDS, AND FOR SERVING, TO THE BEST OF OUR ABILITY, OUR COLLEGE COMMUNITY.

In fact, there are more than 600 college and university campuses that are home to sorority women in the United States and Canada. NPC is the umbrella organization for 26 national and international sororities. Each sorority functions autonomously as social, Greek-letter societies of college women, and alumnae. ASU recognizes 12 NPC sorority chapters. The local Panhellenic Council, a smaller unit of the larger National Panhellenic Conference, is responsible for organizing activities of interest to all Panhellenic sororities on campus. No matter what city you end up in after college, you will always find friends. Alumnae chapters are set up throughout the United States and the world, allowing you to find a familiar face in a new place. While you might not initially know the women, you will know the bond that is shared by being a part of the same organization. http://asu.mycampusdirector.com/register 6 It’s All Greek TO ME ACTIVE: An initiated collegiate member who is currently paying dues to an undergraduate chapter. NEW MEMBER: A person who has accepted an invitation to join a chapter and has not yet been initiated. ALUMNA: A sorority member who is a graduated member of a collegiate chapter. PANHELLENIC COUNCIL: The Panhellenic Council is a cooperative campus organization of collegiate members of NPC sororities. BID: A formal invitation extended to a prospective member to join a chapter. POTENTIAL NEW MEMBER: A woman interested in joining a Panhellenic sorority. CHAPTER: A membership unit of a (inter)national sorority. PREFERENTIAL BIDDING: A system used at the conclusion of Recruitment to match sorority and potential new member preferences. CONTINUOUS OPEN BIDDING (COB): COB bids may be extended and accepted at any time during the school year other than during Formal Recruitment. (COB is also called open bidding and Informal Membership Recruitment.) RECOMMENDATION/REFERENCE: A letter or a form written by an alumna member recommending a potential member to a sorority. FORMAL MEMBERSHIP RECRUITMENT: A designated membership recruitment period during which a series of organized events are held by each NPC sorority, organized by the Panhellenic Council. RECRUITMENT COUNSELOR: A Panhellenic sorority member who has disaffiliated from her chapter during Formal Recruitment. She is specially trained to help potential new members and answer any questions they may have about sorority membership. FRATERNITY: Greek-letter sisterhood or brotherhood. INITIATION: A ceremony in which new members receive lifelong membership privileges. SORORITY: A Greek-letter sisterhood. LEGACY: A woman whose mother, sister, or in some cases, grandmother, is an alumna or active member of a sorority. NATIONAL PANHELLENIC CONFERENCE (NPC): NPC is a conference body composed of 26 national women’s fraternities, each of which is autonomous as a social, Greek-letter society of college women, undergraduates, and alumnae. 7 Sisterhood JOINING A PANHELLENIC SORORITY IS THE BEGINNING OF CREATING LIFELONG FRIENDS. It is a way for you to create a home away from home. One of the best aspects of joining a sorority is the friends you will make. You will share a bond with these women that is unlike any other. You will share in each other’s successes, happiness, and on occasion, sorrows. You will find that relaxing and laughing with each other will be some of the most fulfilling times you and your sisters will have together. Sisterhood is more than wearing the same Greek letters; it is about a sense of belonging, companionship, and community. Scholarship ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT IS THE PRIMARY REASON FOR ATTENDING COLLEGE! Academics are an important part of sorority life. In fact, although Panhellenic does not have a specific GPA requirement to participate in Recruitment, each individual sorority does have a minimum GPA requirement for membership*. We encourage you to inquire about this during Recruitment. ASU Panhellenic sorority women want you to be successful at ASU. Panhellenic chapters offer study hours and assistance in time management and study skills as well as tutoring programs. Each national organization also offers academic scholarships for those women who meet the requirements. With permission from each potential new member, ASU will verify GPA, ASU enrollment, and number of credits enrolled in for each woman going through Recruitment. The ASU all-women’s GPA is 3.06 and the ASU all-Panhellenic GPA is 3.12. *This is according to the Fall 2011 term. 8 Leadership LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT IS ONE OF THE BENEFITS OF BEING IN A SORORITY. As a chapter officer you can further develop your leadership skills. Every chapter has multiple opportunities for you to get involved. Whether it is taking on a large role, such as an Executive Board position, or something smaller like being on a committee planning an event, there are leadership roles for everyone. Additionally, sorority women are also involved in campus-wide activities. Your chapter will encourage you to get involved with campus activities. Greeks are members of numerous student organizations on campus including Undergraduate Student Government, ASU athletics, Programming and Activities Board, Devil’s Advocates, Residence Hall Association, Greek Programming Board, Order of Omega Honor Society, and many other organizations. Striking a balance between academics and social activities is an important part of college life. Involvement in both areas provides a well-rounded college experience. Community Service PANHELLENIC SORORITY WOMEN CONTRIBUTE MUCH TO THE ASU CAMPUS AND SURROUNDING COMMUNITY. ASU Greek Life raised over $100,000 this year for the American Cancer Society through Relay for Life. Individual sorority women also volunteer for local programs such as The Make-A-Wish Foundation, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Habitat for Humanity, and the Boys and Girls Club of America. There are endless opportunities to help benefit the community. The ability to give your time to others is one of the most important qualities you will develop while being part of a sorority. Housing THE PANHELLENIC SORORITIES ARE HOUSED AT ADELPHI COMMONS. Adelphi Commons is a gated community on campus, offering you close proximity to classrooms, the library, student union, and recreational facilities. Each chapter has its own cluster, complete with suite-style living, a full kitchen, chapter room, study room and a courtyard. Each of the sororities require their members to live in Adelphi Commons until they have reached maximum occupancy. Once a chapter has reached maximum occupancy, members can reside elsewhere. 9 Financial OBLIGATIONS JOINING ANY CHAPTER COMES WITH A FINANCIAL REQUIREMENT. Sorority dues range from $600-$800 per semester. You and your family should be aware of the dues, fees, and other expenses. The first semester of membership is usually the most expensive, as most of the onetime fees occur then. Be sure to ask questions during Recruitment about financial obligations. Hazing ARIZONA STATE UNIVERSITY DOES NOT TOLERATE HAZING IN ANY FORM, AND THEREFORE IT IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED. Additionally, hazing is a violation of all national fraternity and sorority policies, the Arizona Board of Regents Student Code of Conduct, and is a violation of state law. All ASU students are expected to follow the ABOR Student Code of Conduct. http://azregents.asu.edu/rrc/Policy%20Manual/5-308-Student%20Code%20of%20Conduct.pdf http://asu.mycampusdirector.com/register 10 Formal PA N H E L L E N I C R E C R U I T M E N T FORMAL PANHELLENIC SORORITY RECRUITMENT TAKES PLACE LABOR DAY WEEKEND, WHICH IS AUGUST 31SEPTEMBER 3, 2012. It lasts the entire weekend, so please request time off of work and do not schedule any vacations during that time. Recruitment will be an exciting time! It is an opportunity for you to get to know ASU, Greek Life, our sorority women, and your potential new sisters better. Please remember that participation in Recruitment does not guarantee an invitation to join a sorority, nor does it obligate a woman to join. Your first stop on your journey to join a sorority will be to register for Panhellenic Recruitment. All women who wish to join a sorority must fill out the Panhellenic registration form ahead of time. To fill out the application, please visit our registration site at: https://asu.mycampusdirector.com/register/. The application fee is $125 and must be paid before your application will be eligible for submission. Applications can be completed online through Wednesday, August 29, 2012, at 12 pm. Next, you will attend a mandatory orientation on Wednesday, August 29, 2012, in the Memorial Union Arizona Ballroom. There will be two different options available to you. One will take place at 5:30 pm and the other will take place at 7:30 pm. At orientation the Panhellenic Council Officers and Panhellenic Ambassadors will discuss the Formal Recruitment process. You will have the opportunity to meet with your Panhellenic Ambassadors and have your questions about Recruitment answered. Recruitment begins with Round 1 on Friday, August 31, 2012; Round 2 on Saturday, September 1, 2012; Round 3 on Sunday, September 2, 2012; and Preference on Monday, September 3, 2012. During each round you will have the opportunity to meet many women and learn about each chapter. Each chapter is unique and has its own traditions, so it is important to learn as much as possible about each one. You are encouraged to ask questions about fees, housing, the sorority, and college life in general. Recruitment is a mutual selection process. Just as the chapters are narrowing down the number of women attending their parties, you will be narrowing down the number of chapters you wish to attend. The length of the Recruitment parties gets longer as the week progresses so the chapters have a better opportunity to get to know you and you get to know them. A Panhellenic Ambassador is a Panhellenic woman who will be the leader of a Recruitment group of approximately 30 potential new members. She is someone with whom you can talk and ask questions. It is her job to remain neutral through the process, and in order to do this she has disaffiliated from her chapter. This means that she will not tell you which chapter she is part of until the end of Recruitment. This allows you to ask her any questions you might have about any of our 12 chapters and not feel any pressure. She is there to be your friend and help you make the right decision. She will be your companion and confidant throughout the entire recruitment process and is available 24 hours a day. It is important that you keep an open mind throughout Recruitment. With 12 Panhellenic chapters on campus you will find one that suits your needs. Recruitment is the perfect time to find that group you feel the most comfortable with. You should join the chapter where you feel at home. You should join the chapter that is best for you! 11 Recruitment SCHEDULE QUESTION AND ANSWER SESSION/ADELPHI DAY TUESDAY, AUGUST 28, 2012, AT 6:30 PM This session is designed to answer any initial questions you might have about Panhellenic sorority life as well as give you an opportunity to tour Adelphi Commons, the on-campus sorority housing complex. s s s FALL RECRUITMENT ORIENTATION WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 29, 2012, AT 5:30 PM OR 7:30 PM This event is mandatory for all women participating in recruitment and will be held in the Arizona Ballroom in the Memorial Union.

Take notes after leaving each event. Record the names of the people you talked to, what you talked about, notable characteristics of the chapter, and anything else to help you remember your visit at a later time. You will be provided paper and a pen. 2. Be positive and polite. 3. Look at the sorority as a whole. Don’t judge the entire chapter by just one woman. 4. Ask questions – it helps the conversation and is a sign of interest. 5. Be mature in your decision-making. 6. Be realistic about the members with whom you feel the most comfortable. 7. Active members are just as nervous, anxious, and excited as you are. 8. Do not interpret any remark made at an event as assurance of a bid – one individual member has no way of determining these things. 9. Make sure to get ample rest and relaxation. It is a long process. Also, drink water and make sure that you eat before you arrive each day. 10. Remember to make your own decision! If you have any questions or feelings that you need to discuss, go to your Recruitment Counselor. She is there to help you throughout this process. 11. SMILE! 12. Have a great time and meet as many people as possible! 13.
