are three rounds of parties that occur during formal Recruitment.
Each of these rounds is designed so that the sororities
will get to know more about you and you will get to know
more about the sororities. To give you a better idea of
what to wear during the parties, a fashion show is planned
for our Recruitment convocation so you can see what
Potential New Members will
be wearing for each type of party. If you have any questions
regarding what is appropriate to wear, ask your Rho Gamma (Recruitment Counselor). She will be happy to help.
The first parties will be Icebreakers. During these parties
you will be introduced to many members of each of the sororities
and you will be given an overall picture of each chapter
and its national organization. These parties will last 30
minutes. Ice water will be provided by Panhellenic between
parties outside, in the Sorority Townhouse Amphitheater.
comfortable clothes are appropriate for Icebreaker - such
as sundresses, capris, slacks, skirts and blouses,
and casual dresses.
Skit parties come next. PNM's may attend up to five skit
parties, during which you will have the opportunity to visit
again with sorority members. The sororities will be presenting
entertaining skits, so come prepared to have a great time.
Snacks are also served at these parties.
same comfortable cloths worn to Icebreakers are appropriate
for Skit Parties. You might be sitting on the floor at times,
so keep this in mind.
The third and final round of parties is Preferential Evening
Parties. You may attend up to three of these parties, which
are a special ending to Recruitment. Preferential Evening Parties
give the PNM a closer look at the meaning of sororities
and their sisterhood in a more serious and meaningful setting.
You should wear a dress that would be appropriate
for a tea or church for Preferential Evening Parties.
