Panhellenic sororities offer many opportunities for membership throughout the year. The most opportunities for membership happen during Primary Recruitment, which typically occurs the week prior to the first day of classes in the fall academic semester. Students not interested or unable to participate in Primary Recruitment may also have opportunities throughout the fall and spring semesters to join a Panhellenic organization through the Continuous Open Bidding (COB) process. It is important to note that not all Panhellenic chapters will participate in COB.
Panhellenic Continuous Open Bidding
For the Panhellenic Council, Continuous Open Bidding (COB) can happen all year long in both the fall and spring semesters. These COBs are membership invitations extended by individual Panhellenic organizations to interested women. Not all Panhellenic organizations may be eligible for COBs based on the total chapter membership.
If you are interested in any membership opportunities available in the Panhellenic Community, please fill out this form and we will help connect you to chapters that may be currently participating in the COB process:Panhellenic Interest Form
