TIPS FOR RECRUITMENT
Keep an open mind!
Remember that you are choosing a chapter for yourself, not anyone else. Look for a place where you feel comfortable. The girls in the chapter you choose will not only be your best friends for four years, but for a lifetime.
The goal of going through recruitment is to find where you fit best, to find your new home. Being authentic will help you make connections with the sisters and help you realize where you're meant to be. Trying to fit a certain mold never pays off in the long run.
Talk to your Rho Gammas.
They are there to help you! They can answer any questions you have about the recruitment process and they want to make you feel as comfortable as possible. They are your best friends throughout the entire recruitment process!
Come as you are!
One of the most exciting parts of recruitment is picking out just the right outfits. Choose one which really allows you to show off your personality and don't be afraid to show off your style! Be YOU!
Don't be nervous to ask real questions. Doing this is the only way that you can really learn which chapter is the right fit for you. We will happy to answer any and all that you have!
From the VP of Membership Recruitment:
Welcome to Worcester Polytechnic Institute! Whether in the classroom, on the field, or table sitting in the campus center, there are so many unique organizations on campus providing everyone with the chance to find their home, and I was lucky enough to find mine in Alpha Phi.
Formal Recruitment can definitely seem like a very stressful and overwhelming time but the WPI Panhellenic Council does an amazing job of ensuring that every woman can have the most rewarding experience possible. This week-long process at the beginning of B term gives women considering Greek Life the opportunity to learn more about the chapters on our campus and meet the women behind the letters. Every chapter is unique, and together we make up an amazing and empowering group of women.
At the start of my college career I had no intentions of joining a sorority. After watching my friends go through recruitment, my mind was completely changed. There was so much more to Greek Life than I imagined. Since joining, Alpha Phi has been such an important part of my life. It has provided me with a support system, motivation, friendship, and most importantly, a better version of myself.
I encourage you all to go through recruitment! Break out of your comfort zone and do something you thought you’d never do. Learn more about Greek Life and how it can enhance your college career and push you to fill your potential. From all of us here at Alpha Phi, GOOD LUCK, and we look forward to meeting you!!
