Frequently Asked Questions

FAQs for Students

Do I need a recommendation to go through recruitment?
Recommendation letters are not a requirement, but some chapters do utilize them to help with making decisions during the recruitment process. This is not their sole method of making decisions and not every chapter utilizes them in decision-making. This means that women who have recommendations are not guaranteed a bid and women who do not have them will still receive bids. If you have a relative or friend who wishes to write a "rec letter" for you then please mail those letters to the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life care of the chapter the letter is intended to reach.
