Panhellenic Association Recruitment


Women's Panhellenic Recruitment is the process through which potential new members consider sororities and sororities choose new sisters. The Primary Recruitment period is comprised of multiple rounds where potential new members visit each of the chapters on Duke's campus. Through a process of mutual selection, students narrow their choices until they select a sorority following the last round. Women's recruitment will begin Friday, January 11, 2019.  For more information about the Panhellenic Association, CLICK HERE.

To be eligible to participate in Panhellenic's Formal Recruitment process, a woman must be a regularly enrolled, full-time undergraduate student who is on-campus and in good standing with Duke University, has completed at least one full semester, and has a 2.50 or better cumulative GPA. Women who choose to participate in the Recruitment process MUST pay a $50 registration fee prior to the beginning of Recruitment. This fee covers reservations and use of venues, administrative materials, and technology fees.

Registration for Panhellenic will be open from Wednesday, October 19th through Sunday, December 2nd. You can register for Formal Panhellenic Recruitment here!


All students interested in joining are required to attend our EMBARK Potential New Member Orientation.  There are two sessions offered and students are expected to attend one of them prior to recruitment regardless of council.
