Each year sororities increase their membership through a mutual selection process called Membership Recruitment. This process was formerly called Rush and it remains an accurate description. During Formal Recruitment, you will have an opportunity to become acquainted with each of the sororities on your campus and their members. At the end, your preferences and the sorority preferences are matched to achieve mutual selection.

During recruitment you get to meet new people on your campus and be exposed to a new opportunity for involvement. Here is some advice to help you through the recruitment process:

*Be yourself.

*Have genuine and honest conversations.

*Spend time really getting to know the members.
*Expose yourself to the chapter experience.
*Seek accurate information from the college or university.
*Look for the group where you feel most comfortable.
*Keep an open mind.
*Trust the process.
*Have fun.
*Go through the entire recruitment process knowing that you will meet countless remarkable women who   may be your friends no matter what sorority you join.As an alumna member (sorority member no longer in college), there will be opportunities to network and develop friendships with sorority sisters from all over the country. Community involvement and philanthropic efforts continue along with social activities.
