Join Sorority Life

Drury University > Life at Drury > Greek Life > Join Sorority Life

Sorority Recruitment occurs during the first week of classes. Recruitment is designed to allow each potential new member the opportunity to become acquainted with Drury Sorority Life in order to make the best possible decision concerning membership. Sorority Recruitment also allows sororities to recruit potential members on an equal-opportunity basis using Panhellenic guidelines and support.

Membership Opportunities
All sorority chapters accept new members in the fall semester. For the opportunity to join a sorority in the fall semester, complete the online recruitment registration form. Only select chapters will accept new members in the spring semester; this is determined by available membership spaces. For the opportunity to join a sorority in the spring semester, contact Panhellenic Council at greeks@drury.edu.


Fall 2020 Recruitment Schedule 

Fall recruitment will take place from August 27, 2021- August 29, 2021. 


Sorority Requirements

The academic responsibilities, financial obligations and time requirements are an important factor in your decision to join a sorority. Understanding the expenses and requirements before committing to join is important.  If you have questions, please ask a current chapter member.

Academic Responsibilities
Sorority members are expected to maintain quality academic standards as governed by their individual chapter. Resources are available to support academic success within each organization.

Financial Obligations
Joining a sorority, while not without additional expense, can be an affordable option for everyone. Payment plans are always an option within individual chapters. Most sorority women balance their school and co-curricular activities with a part-time job. If your parents or guardians are responsible for your support, be sure to discuss all relevant costs and time requirements with them before you decide to join. Investing in a sorority will be one of the best decisions you will ever make; the friendships and memories you make within your chapter will be remembered long after you write a check for your dues!

Cost to Participate in Sorority Recruitment
There is a $30 fee to participate in Sorority Recruitment. The fee covers refreshments, T-shirt and giveaways, technology and informational brochures.

Participation Expectations & Time Requirements
Panhellenic publishes a Sorority Life event calendar each semester. Events vary by semester, but typically include All-Sorority Sisterhoods, Safety Sessions, Training Workshops and All-Greek Philanthropy Events. Panhellenic hosts, sponsors or supports about one event per month for Sorority women. Participation in Panhellenic events is expected of all sorority women.  Chapter officers determine participation expectations for chapter events.

Recruitment Week


What to Wear During Recruitment

Here’s a guide of what you might want to wear throughout the recruitment process. There’s no pressure to go out and buy anything! These items will probably already be in your closet. The most important thing throughout the entire recruitment process is that you feel comfortable and confident!

Recruitment 101

This night will give you a chance to see some great recruitment looks, no matter what your style. You can wear something cute and comfortable tonight!

Sisterhood Round

Good news! We’ve got part of your outfit covered for the first round of recruitment. We will provide you with a recruitment t-shirt to wear for this night during recruitment orientation. All you need to do is pair it with your favorite shorts, skirt or jeans.

Philanthropy/Service Round

This is the day you’ll learn more about the sororities’ philanthropies and service projects. Nicer casual outfits will do great!

Bid Day

When you come back to figure out what chapter you belong to, feel free to wear casual clothing. Shorts or jeans are perfectly acceptable! The chapter will give you a bid day shirt (that you’ll change into) to celebrate the newest members of their chapters! Make sure to wear comfortable shoes because you may be running a little!
