Round One: Ice Water Tea, Open House, Values Round
During the first round of recruitment (at larger schools, the first round of recruitment could last 1-2 days), each Potential New Member (PNM) will visit each chapter that the university offers on campus. PNMs will be greeted with a door song and get an opportunity to speak with members of each chapter. Parties last around 20 minutes.
White Flag Wrap Dress
Sundresses are perfect for round one- this one will make you look polished and keep you comfy. It's a win-win.
Flounce Sleeve Romper
Rompers give you the best of both worlds- the feel of comfy shorts with the look of a fancier get-up.
Ditsy Floral Ruffle Hem Knot Wrap Skirt
Wrap skirts are comfortable and easy to style! This vibrant print will help you stand out amongst the other PNMs.
Weekend Strappy Sandals
Stilettos and casual sandals are a no-go for round one. Low-key heels are a great choice, though- they'll complement your outfit without killing your feet.
Round Two: Philanthropy Day
During the second round of recruitment, you will learn more about each chapter's philanthropic organization they are involved with. You may be asked to make a craft with the chapter or watch a slideshow. Parties usually last around 30 minutes
Graphic Print Tie Dye Tee
The Panhellenic team usually gives out matching t-shirts for all PNMs to wear on this day.
Fearless Denim Shorts
Round two is a little more casual- it's okay to wear nicer shorts on this day. These white shorts have a stylish waistline that will dress up any T-Shirt you pair with them.
Carefree Mustard Yellow Button-Front Skort
A skort is a perfect choice for round two- it's the perfect mix of comfort and style.
Round Three: Skit Day
During the third round of recruitment, chapters will put on a skit to let PNMs know a little more about their particular chapter. Parties usually last around 45 minutes

Cate Black Nubuck Peep-Toe Mules
Round Four: Preference (Pref) Day
Preference is the most serious day of the recruitment process. On this day, PNMs decide which chapter they want to join. Parties usually last around an hour.
Off Shoulder Scallop Trim Fit And Flare Dress
Round Four is the most formal round. Most people go with a fancier dress- this is a great option.
Outstanding Burgundy Crochet Lace Ruffled Midi Dress
If you're looking for something a little longer, this midi dress might be a great option for your Round Four outfit!
This is the most exciting day because you finally get to become a new member of a sorority! Chapters usually have fun events or retreats planned for their new members immediately after you receive your bid, so it could potentially be a long day.
Sorority Lettered Softstyle V-Neck
You'll usually get a T-Shirt or jersey from your sorority on Bid Day.
Midnight Moon Black Shorts
Casual shorts are fine for Bid Day- we love the high rise and button fly on these!
