In order to participate in sorority recruitment, potential new members are required to register with the Greek Life or Panhellenic office on the university campus and pay a registration fee by a certain deadline. Registration opportunities are often also available during university orientation sessions. If you have not obtained recruitment information, we suggest contacting the campus Greek Life office for further details.
Letters of Recommendation for Recruitment
When college sororities conduct new member recruitment, some may require letters of recommendation from their alumnae. Other sororities accept, but don’t require letters of recommendation.
Letters of recommendation are written by sorority alumnae to introduce a potential new member to the collegiate sisters of her sorority to help determine if the potential new member would be a good match for their chapter. With so many women going through recruitment, recommendation letters provide the chapter members an opportunity to be introduced to a woman prior to the beginning of the formal recruitment process.
LAAPA does not have representation from all NPC sororities. To best serve you, LAAPA is a proud member of the Southern California Council of Alumnae Panhellenics.
