Primary Recruitment Information

Potential New Members (PNMs) must identify as a woman, an undergraduate student, and be enrolled full-time at Southeastern Louisiana University to participate in primary recruitment. While a specific GPA is not required to participate in recruitment, it is strongly encouraged that a woman have at least a 2.5 cumulative GPA from high school or college. The higher your GPA the more maximized your membership opportunities will be as a participant. 

Potential New Members (PNMs) are expected to abide by a code of ethics during their participation in primary recruitment. All PNMs must review this document and agree to it when registering for primary recruitment.

Informal Recruitment/Continuous Open Bidding Information

Continuous Open Bidding is a very informal process that sororities use to take in new members. Unlike formal recruitment, there are no silence rules, no long days of going from party to party, or complicated invitation acceptances. When a sorority holds COB, they simply contact a potential new member on their own and hold a series of informal events to get to know her better. Each chapter does it differently. Some might go to dinner with a potential member. Some chapters might hold a ‘board game night’ at the chapter house and invite potential members to attend. The one thing these parties do have in common is that they are a great way to casually meet people and they are always fun.

National Panhellenic Conference Website:

Letters of Recommendation are historically letters of reference written by an alumna of a sorority to her sorority’s chapter at Southeastern on behalf of the potential new member. Letters of recommendation are not a requirement in the recruitment registration process, but you are welcome to have letters submitted on your behalf if you would like. Recently, some of our chapters’ national organizations have decided to no longer accept letters of recommendation in an attempt to promote inclusivity and remain open-minded and unbiased in the decision-making process during recruitment. Please visit a chapter's individual website or social media to learn more about letters of recommendation. 

Registration is completely online!  Beginning mid-May, you will be able to access our registration portal where you will fill out the application, upload a picture of yourself and make your online payment of $75. Recruitment Registration is not complete until the application fee and transcript information are received and confirmed.

The recruitment registration fee ($75) covers snacks during recruitment, two t-shirts, access to online registration, mail-outs and supplies used during recruitment. The recruitment fee is non-refundable.

Once you have completed your online registration, the Fraternity & Sorority Life office will send a confirmation email to the email address provided in your application.

Bid Card distribution is the last day of primary recruitment. Distribution is closed to everyone except potential new members (PNM) and Panhellenic Members. After opening their bid cards, PNMs will arrive to Bid Day. New members will "run home" to their chapters on Bid Day. Parents and family members, as well as CPC alumna members, will be invited to attend Bid Day. More details to come soon. 

MRABA stands for "Membership Recruitment Acceptance Binding Agreement." This is a contract the potential new member (PNM) signs to receive a bid from one of our five NPC sororities at Southeastern. By signing the MRABA, a PNM acknowledges and agrees to each of the conditions on the document. More information about the MRABA can be found here on the National Panhellenic Conference's website and there will be extensive education during primary recruitment to make sure all PNMs know what the MRABA is and its significance in the Southeastern CPC Recruitment experience. 

In the event that you participate in a sport or other University-approved activity that conflicts with recruitment, we will do our best to accommodate your schedule and plan as many parties as possible.  We cannot guarantee that you will be able to attend all parties though.  If you can’t attend a round of recruitment, chapters will be notified of the excused absence and will be asked to act as if you were present.  You will work with your Gamma Chi to make your selections from a distance.

Panhellenic sororities provide support systems for their members that become like a home away from home.  Greek membership fosters leadership, academic enrichment, career development, community service, and good citizenship.  Panhellenic sororities also provide friendships and memories that will last a lifetime, making for a well-rounded and unforgettable college experience.

A Gamma Chi is a recruitment counselor that helps guide you during the recruitment process.  She is an active sorority member who disaffiliates temporarily from her sorority to guide and support women through the recruitment process.  All Potential New Members will be assigned to a Gamma Chi group prior to recruitment and will be placed in that group during the convocation.

Dues and member fees vary from chapter to chapter. This is a great thing to ask about during any organizational browses or during the first two rounds of recruitment!
