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.
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 email@example.com.
Fall recruitment will take place from August 27, 2021- August 29, 2021.
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.
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.
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.

Being part of a sorority is like any other organization, in that you will spend time in meetings, planning events, and just hanging out with your sisters. The time commitment is what you make of it: the more you put in, the more you get out. Dury’s chapters don’t expect you devote all of your time to the chapter. You’re still able to focus on school, your sport, work, etc. We just want to be part of your life, not the only part of your life. Here is the typical time commitments for each sorority:

This is the most formal round of recruitment. It is the last round before bids (an invitation to join a chapter) are given out. A nice dress, pants or skirts are great options!
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!
