Recruitment Orientation, January 22, 2014
Come as you are! All women registered for Formal Recruitment should attend this important meeting in Bush Auditorium at 8:00pm to receive information about what to expect during the following four days, including—but not limited to—meeting places and times, dress code, and organizational procedures. The free Recruitment t-shirt will also be handed out to be worn the following night. Potential new member women will have the opportunity to meet their Recruitment Counselors and their assigned groups (small groups of women, assigned to the same Recruitment Counselors, who will meet together before and after the events of each night)!
Philanthropy Night, January 23, 2014
From 6pm until 10:30pm, potential new member women will meet with sorority women at each chapter for 30 minute events. As the first night, this is casual and introductory! Potential new members are asked to wear their new Recruitment t-shirts and to take advantage of the opportunity to learn about the basic identities of each sorority—and especially about their Philanthropies!
Skit Night, January 24, 2014
The events on Skit Night include some exciting entertainment, so they are 45 minutes each. On the second night of Formal Recruitment, the sisters of the Rollins sororities will be dressed nicely to present their skits, so potential new member women should don something comfortable (the evening may involve low seating and definitely a good deal of standing) yet polished for this occasion. As an invitation round, women will find the scope of their prospective choices focusing on this night and may return to between one and three sororities.
Preference Night, January 25, 2014
Preference Night is a very special occasion both to potential new member women and sorority women. A fairly formal affair in the character of an intimate cocktail hour (although it’s a 45 minute event) and including beautiful, distinctive presentations with each sorority, Preference night is the final round of Formal Recruitment. As another invitation round, potential new member women may expect to attend between one and two events this evening.
Bid Day, January 26, 2014
The most exciting day of Formal Recruitment, Bid Day is the day on which potential members become new members of our sororities! ALL women will be phoned by their Recruitment Counselors with updates and notifications prior to meeting at Bush at 12pm for bids! Once the new members have formally accepted their bids, Recruitment Counselors reveal their chapter affiliations and make the traditional run with their new sisters to their respective sororities!

Remember: Recruitment is about getting to know the sororities and them getting to know you, so comfort is the priority!
