Sorority recruitment can be an intimidating process, but Jennings Cool, Zeta Mu’s Recruitment and Marketing Vice President, gives one of the best pieces of advice for anyone going through recruitment!
Dear Potential New Member,
Just two years ago, I was contemplating registering for recruitment. I had heard the stereotypes, the rumors, and all the misconceptions regarding Greek Life. In addition, the idea of sorority recruitment was intimidating; finding the right outfits, anticipating what questions to ask, and worrying about being “perfect”. What I quickly learned was all my reservations regarding Greek Life and sorority recruitment were insignificant.
Recruitment is not a time to pretend to be someone who you aren’t. It is not a time to panic and obsess about the little things, such as what outfit you will wear during each round or how your hair looks. It is a time to be confident in yourself, realize your value and potential, and be the amazing person that you already are. Yes, going through recruitment can be intimidating, but every sorority woman on the other side is thrilled to meet you. We are excited to learn about your values, your interests, and your passions. We are excited to get to know YOU!
I could go on and on with pieces of advice for going through recruitment, but I believe that this is the most important. No matter what organization you become a part of, hold true to who you are. Sororities will challenge you and push you, but they will only push you to be a better version of yourself!
These next years will be your greatest! Get excited! We cannot wait to meet you!
