Lauren: Sorority Recruitment!

Hi everyone!  Hope you’re all having an amazing semester so far!

Last weekend, I participated in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s with my Sigma Kappa sisters!  It was such an amazing experience, and it made me realize that going through Formal Recruitment and joining a sorority was one of the best decisions of my life!

Through sisterhood and philanthropic events, sororities work to make a difference in the community and serve as a foundation for lifelong friendships.  Greek life is perfect for anyone looking to become a part of a special and meaningful group!

I recommend that any girls interested in joining a sorority go through Recruitment!  It will give you a chance to meet tons of girls and figure out which sorority is the best fit for you!

Formal Recruitment doesn’t begin until January (the actual dates are Friday January 11th to Monday January 14th – mark them on your calendar!!). While this may seem like it’s a century away, it’ll be here before you know it!

BU has some great resources on everything relating to Greek Life!  Here’s what you should do if you’re interested in recruitment!

  1. Check out the Greek Life Prospective Member FAQ page-

Got any specific questions about Greek life or recruitment?  Look no further!

  1. 2. Take some time to learn about all the different sororities

At formal recruitment, you’ll get the chance to meet all sororities!  It’s very exciting, but it can be a little overwhelming too!  My advice is to research all of BU’s sororities before recruitment, so that it makes things less stressful during recruitment time!  This will definitely help you out!

  1. 3. Keep up-to-date!

“Like” BU Sorority Recruitment on Facebook to stay in the loop with everything going on!  Also, follow @BUPanhel on Twitter for the latest Recruitment information!

  1. 4. Learn the lingo!

If you get the chance, take some time to look at some of the Greek life terminology!   That way you’re ready to go on the first day of recruitment!

For sophomores, juniors and seniors, you can also look at some other recruitment options like Informal Recruitment or joining Kappa Alpha Theta!

I’m proud to be a member of the BU Greek community!  We’re a group of strong, dedicated students, and I can’t watch as we continue to grow!

#COMlove always,
