A Letter from our VP of Recruitment

Dear Potential New Member,

Welcome to the Recruitment Section of the Panhellenic website. I am thrilled about your interest in Greek life at the University of Maryland and am so excited to see you embark upon this amazing journey!
Being a member of a sorority can change your life during and after college in so many ways. Not only are you able to develop close friendships with incredible women, but you also have beneficial opportunities for leadership, service, academic success, and social development. The Panhellenic Community is an extraordinary group, devoted to upholding the values of Sisterhood, Scholarship, Leadership and Service. We strive each day to empower ourselves and each other to grow as sorority women and as individuals.
Throughout the semester, there will be various events for you to learn more about Greek Life and the Recruitment process. Check this page frequently, as we will post all upcoming Recruitment news and events here on our website. My decision to go through Panhellenic Recruitment has been the best decision I’ve made thus far in college. My sisters as well as the other women and the community have made me a better person and taught me so much about myself as well who I want to be. I know you may be nervous to enter Recruitment, but I encourage you to remember to be yourself and enjoy it! You will meet so many wonderful  women throughout the recruitment process, and they all have something special to offer. And at the end of it all, you will find the sisterhood that is the best fit for you!

Throughout the entire process, I will be here to guide you and be any resource you need me to be.  Please feel free to email me at any time at umdrecruitment@gmail.com if you have any questions or concerns. 

Good luck and I hope you have a wonderful Recruitment process!
