Choose photographs for submission; most sororities prefer two pictures. Put your name and hometown on the back of each photo. (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?
Prepare a resume listing your academic standing, honors, activities, and interests. Make copies and be prepared to furnish it to schools or alumnae upon request.
Obtain an official high school transcript. Make copies to attach with each resume.
Return VAAPA REGISTRATION FORM and RECRUITMENT REGISTRATION PACKETS to VAAPA BEFORE MAY 1, 2020 (one manilla envelope per sorority at the university you will be attending, which consists of your resume, photographs and transcript copy.) This allows members of VAAPA to write recommendations on your behalf.
***We can NOT guarantee that your recommendations will be written if your information is sent in after this date.
Begin networking with family, friends and teachers to let them know your plans about participating in sorority recruitment.
You will need personal recommendations from sorority alumnae who know you or your family. Try to get a letter for each sorority group on the campus you will attend. Alumnae writing these letters may need a personal resume, a copy of a current transcript and several photographs. These letters of support should be mailed directly by the writer to the sorority at your university.
Remember to thank each alumnae writing a letter or on your behalf!
The TRACK MY SUPPORT form is a great tool!
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!
