NPC Sorority Recruitment Information

National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) Sorority Recruitment

Primary Recruitment for Delta Delta Delta, Kappa Alpha Theta, Kappa Delta, and Zeta Tau Alpha will take place on February 15-17, 2024 with Bid Day taking place on February 18, 2024. 

How Does the Recruitment Process Work?
Panhellenic Primary Recruitment is the formal process through which potential new members (PNMs) consider sororities and sororities choose new sisters. It is a mutual selection process where participants are making decisions about organizations they are most interested in while the members of the organizations are also making decisions regarding PNMs. Each participant will visit with all sororities during the first round of recruitment. The remaining rounds of Primary Recruitment are by invitation only and the number of possible parties you may attend decrease throughout the process. Participation in Primary Recruitment does not guarantee an invitation to membership, nor does it obligate a participant to join.
