Register for women's sorority recruitment online


Panhellenic's Formal Recruitment is a well-planned and structured week of activities that begin September 9 and continue through September 13. This structure was developed so potential new members can meet as many women as possible in each of TTU's five sororities.

Mutual Selection Process

On the first night of recruitment, you will visit all five sorority chapters beginning at 6 p.m. in the Sorority Suites located above "The Perch" in New Hall North. After the night's events, you will have the opportunity to rank the chapters in order of preference. Chapters will do the same. When you come back the following night, you will receive a schedule of the events you will attend that night. Membership selection is not a superficial process. Chapters choose members based on a number of criteria including:

  • Scholastic achievement
  • Leadership excellence
  • Community service work

The recruitment period of the all the NPHC organizations is open throughout the school year. The minimum grade point average required by Tennessee Tech is 2.0, though most NPHC organizations require at least a 2.3 to become a member.

The intake process is determined by each sorority/fraternity. Interest meetings are held by each organization. These meetings provide information about the organization, application fees, and answer questions the aspirant (potential member) might have. The meetings are generally advertised by posters, flyers, mass e-mail, and word of mouth. In order to legally obtain membership in the Fraternity/Sorority of choice the potential member should be aware of these aspects:

  • Each organization should ask for an official transcript of each aspirant.
  • Each organization should have a regional/state director present at the informational meeting.
  • Present a anti-hazing form for the aspirant to sign before any meeting other than an informational is held.
  • Each organization should have each aspirant to sign the grade release form for the Office of Greek Life.

If any of the above do not occur, it is important you contact the Office of Greek Life. Though very rare, illegal recruitment, also known as "Renegade intake" can occur. This can result in the expulsion of the organization, members, and the aspirant involved in the illegal intake.

If you have any questions concerning recruitment, please contact The Office of Greek Life at (931)372-6434 or email us at
