What to Expect

Recruitment Process: 

Formal Recruitment is a mutual selection based process over a six-day period. During recruitment you will have the opportunity to meet women from each chapter, learn about their traditions, financial responsibilities and philanthropic efforts. You will be guided through the process by Sorority Recruitment Counselors who are women that temporarily disaffiliate from their chapters to assist you throughout the recruitment process.

Financial Responsibility: 

Each chapter has different semester dues and financial responsibilities, which you will learn more about during the Formal Recruitment process. Also, each chapter offers personal payment plans that assist you in managing the financial obligations of sorority life. 

Anti-hazing Policies:

Each sorority has a no tolerance policy against hazing. Hazing is against Panhellenic Bylaws, university policy and state law. 

Panhellenic Spirit and Community:

Kent State's sorority community fosters positivity, success and relationship building between all chapters on campus. We as a community work together to create a caring, understanding, respectful and enriching environment for all Kent State students and value friendship, service, scholarship, philanthropy and community among all sorority women. 

What to wear?

Visit our Pinterest page for a guide on what to wear during each round of Formal Recruitment! 

Please remember these are guidelines and not requirements by any means! Be unique and true to yourself and your personal style! Being true to yourself is the best way for you to find your home away from home!

Sorority recruitment counselors

Your SRC will be a role model in the Panhellenic community and act as a mentor throughout the formal recruitment process. SRCs are considered impartial representatives of the College Panhellenic Association who understand and implement the purposes and goals of the College Panhellenic Association in recruitment. 





Recruitment FAQs

How will I know which sorority is right for me?

Each chapter on Kent's campus has its own unique values, principles, motto and creed that it lives by. It is important to go into the recruitment process with an open mind and positively outlook to discover the best for you.

I'm not a freshman. Am I allowed to go through recruitment?

At Kent State, we encourage ALL undergraduate students to attend out recruitment events and consider registering for formal recruitment.

is it required to attend pre-recruitment events?

No, the only pre-recruitment event you are required to attend is the PNM orientation night, which will give you all of the information you'll need prior to the start of Formal Recruitment week. However, we encourage you to attend the pre-recruitment events to learn more about each chapter and connect with sorority women in our community.

How hard is it to balance sorority life and academics?

Our community greatly values and emphasizes scholarships and academics. Each sorority encourages academic success and provides support to its members through academic study tables and sisterhoods. We encourage you to ask other sorority women how they balance their time, but most sorority women are able to manage sorority responsibilities, academics, work and other extra-curricular activities.

How can I learn more about each sorority?

Attending pre-recruitment events and talking to as many sorority women as possible is the best way to learn more about each individual chapter. You can also learn more about each individual chapter by visiting their national websites or right here on the FSL website!

I am registered for formal recruitment! What is the next step?

Your assigned Sorority Recruitment Counselors (SRCs) will be in contact with you to help you through the process and answer any questions.
