Informal Fall Recruitment

What is Informal Fall Recruitment?

Informal Recruitment is just as it sounds: an informal way to go through Panhellenic Association Recruitment! It is a process in which Potential New Members (PNMs) and chapter members engage in recruitment events not on a strict schedule. There is no formal sign up sheet, only an interest form.

Not all chapters participate in this recruitment process and those that are will be announced sometime during the first week of classes. These events are often casual and sometimes involve just grabbing coffee with someone and chatting! Once it is announced which chapters are participating, their events will also start to be advertised. Anyone that is interested is welcome to attend the events that they wish!

Please fill out the following interest form to receive more information to your email!

PNM Eligibility:

Potential new members must have a minimum of 12 credits and those credits must be transfer, dual enrollment, or University of Maryland credits only.
