On behalf of the SFSU College Panhellenic Association, we would like to wish each and every one of you the best as you begin a new chapter of your life. The best piece of advice is to take on the experience of sorority recruitment with confidence and a positive attitude. Also, we encourage you to critically think about sorority membership and decide what you want out of your personal Greek experience.
Much like life, the more you put into a sorority, the more you will get out of it. The University is committed to the development of the Greek system, and in return, Greeks respect the rich tradition of the University and continually strive to better the campus.
Don’t forget to have fun this week and be relaxed! Above all, this experience is an opportunity to make friends who are embarking on the same journey that you are.

Recruitment week begins with Open House on September 8th, and concludes with Bid Day on Friday, September 16th. For many of you, this will be your first impression of Greek life at San Francisco State University. We hope that you enjoy all that we have planned for you!
This week consists of four rounds of events that will allow you to learn more about each sorority. The events will show you what life in a sorority is like and will give you the chance to meet the sorority women in each house and ask any questions you might have about activities, financial obligations, scholarship, new member programs, and campus life in general. It is so important to keep an open mind during this process and carefully decide where YOU feel YOU fit in to the Greek system.
Please recognize that Formal Recruitment is a mutual selection process. All PNMs (potential new members) will visit every sorority during the first round (Open Houses), but Preference Night is by invitation only. The Panhellenic Executive Council and Recruitment Counselors will explain this process in detail to PNMs throughout the week. Each PNM will be assigned recruitment counselors who will be available during the entire process to answer questions. These women are here to help you in any way you might need them.
Participation in Formal Recruitment DOES NOT guarantee an invitation to join a sorority nor does it obligate a woman to join. However, over 85 percent of the women participating in Formal Recruitment each year join a sorority at the end of the week.
Throughout the week, remember to be comfortable! Be confident! It’s about who you are, not what you wear, so make sure your personality shines through no matter how you dress. Have fun and relax! Recruitment week is a fun way to make new friends and new memories. ENJOY IT!!
