Additional Information To Consider

Cost: Joining a fraternity or sorority is a financial commitment. There is a cost to register for recruitment as well as costs to the chapter immediately upon joining. You can expect to pay dues in the amount of $800- $1200 per year for the duration of your college career.

Academics: Fraternities and sororities have high academic standards. Potential new members are advised that each chapter has a GPA requirement for their new members.

Commitment: Joining a fraternity or sorority is a large time commitment. You should be sure that you are able to commit to each aspect of the organization, including education, philanthropy, chapter events and social events. Fraternities and sororities aren’t like clubs, in that you can’t quit because you want to. You should read everything carefully that you are asked to sign!

Rules: Potential new members should review the Panhellenic Recruitment Rules that are applicable to them.

Letters of Recommendation:  Letters of recommendation (aka “rec letters”) are not required, but are welcomed.  Each sorority has their own standards for recommendations.  If you have sorority alumnae that want to write you a recommendation , please have them consult their sororities national website for procedures on writing letters of recommendation.

Virtual Recruitment: All rounds will be held virtually to comply with High Point University expectations on social distancing and space occupancy. Students who have registered for Panhellenic recruitment will be provided with additional information on the process when they attend the Virtual Mandatory Meeting on Sunday, August 30. Additionally, Recruitment Counselors will provide additional resources and information for students.

All dates are subject to change due to social distancing and occupancy limitations from COVID-19. Any changes to the recruitment schedule will be promptly communicated to those who have expressed interest or registered.
