Choose photographs for your packets; most sororities prefer two pictures - one headshot and one full body. (Hint: be sure these photos are a good likeness - sorority members want to be able to recognize you when you arrive!)
*Please refer to the website for the school you will be attending for specific information regarding cost, days and times of recruitment, etc.
ATTEND THE VAAPA RECRUITMENT ROUNDTABLE
There, we will discuss:
*Why join a sorority?
*How will my daughter benefit from membership in a sorority?
*What is sorority recruitment?
*What do I need to do?
Obtain an official high school transcript to include in each packet.
Return VAAPA REGISTRATION FORM and 4 RECRUITMENT REGISTRATION PACKETS to VAAPA BEFORE APRIL 7, 2021 (4 manilla envelopes, which consists of your resume, photographs and transcript copy.) This allows members of VAAPA to write recommendations on your behalf. You will also need digital copies of the above to email to the rec writers.
***We can NOT guarantee that your recommendations will be written if your information is sent in after this date.
Prepare a resume listing your academic standing, honors, activities, and interests. Make a copy for each packet and a digital copy to furnish to schools or alumnae upon request.
A sample form is provided below in the registration packet.
Begin networking with family, friends and teachers to let them know your plans about participating in sorority recruitment.
Your college will send recruitment information and a registration form with a deadline for submission of form and fees. If you have not received this information by July, contact the college Panhellenic Office and/or check the campus website. Online registration may be available.
THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP in signing up for membership recruitment is to REGISTER with the university you will be attending. You must be registered there to participate in the Membership Recruitment process.
Review the information concerning sororities and the calendar of events for that campus.
Be aware of deadlines for submission of forms - each campus is different!
