Panhellenic Recruitment

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.

Greek Expo – Tuesday, January 16th, 2018, 6:00pm-7:30pm, Panhellenic Building

Greek Expo is an opportunity to meet representatives from all of our 40+ Greek organizations at UT. You will have the chance to learn about their history as an organization, their values and traditions, and potential membership opportunities during the Spring 2018 semester. This is an informal opportunity to meet and chat with our organizations, so no pre-registration is required. Keep in mind that not all of the Greek organizations at Greek Expo may be offering membership opportunities in the spring. Organizations with opportunities for membership during the spring semester will be announced at the event or just ask each organization!

Panhellenic Continuous Open Bidding – Spring 2018

For the Panhellenic Council, spring recruitment may also be known as a period for Continuous Open Bidding (COBs). These are membership invitations extended by Panhellenic organizations to interested women. Not all Panhellenic organizations may be eligible for COBs based on the total chapter membership at the time of Greek Expo.
