Message from our Assistant Vice President of Recruitment, Emily Votroubek.
We are very excited that you are interested in informal recruitment. This year, informal recruitment has changed to make it a more relaxed, easygoing and open process and we encourage all eligible to participate. Here a few important details to take note about informal recruitment this year:
- No registration and no fee – you can let chapters know that you’re interested by completing this form. We’ll be sure to share your information with chapters that are participating.
- Participating chapters are responsible for their own recruitment and membership decisions. Unlike in years past, you don’t have to attend a minimum number of events during the informal recruitment process to be eligible for a bid.
- Depending on participating chapters’ availability, some will host larger-scale events which can include game nights and apple picking. While others will host smaller-scale events like coffee dates and movie nights. The types of the events are driven by the chapter’s needs and availability.
If you want to learn more about the informal recruitment process, being a part of the ISC and meet participating chapters, then come to our information session on September 6 and our Informal Recruitment Kickoff on September 20. We look forward to seeing you there!
Assistant VP of Recruitment
Who can participate in Informal Recruitment?
Second, third, and fourth years, and transfer non-affiliated women may participate in Informal Recruitment. If you completed the Membership Recruitment Acceptance Binding Agreement (MRABA) during Formal Recruitment last spring, you will not be eligible to receive a bid during Informal Recruitment.
Why should I participate in Informal Recruitment?
Due to the informality of the events, Informal Recruitment is a fun and relaxed process during which potential new members (PNMs) can meet sorority women and find a chapter without having to go through the Formal Recruitment Process. Plus, there is no fee!
When is Informal Recruitment?
For the 2015-2016 academic school year, chapters can begin hosting events on September 21, 2015.
The first interest meeting for 2015 Informal Recruitment will be held on September 6th at 3:30pm in the Newcomb Kaleidoscope Room. In this meeting we will cover the process of informal recruitment.
The Informal Recruitment Kickoff will be held on September 20th at 3:30pm in the Newcomb Ballroom. During this meeting we will cover what it means to be a part of the ISC as well as the chapters participating in Informal Recruitment this year. Information on participating chapters will be shared at this event.
