The University of Montana’s four sororities invite new and returning students to meet current members and explore the opportunities offered through Greek Life during fall recruitment Monday through Saturday, Sept. 5-10.
Joining a sorority gives women a chance to enhance their college experience by developing leadership skills, engaging in community service and philanthropy, and participating in academic and social programming – all while forming bonds that last long after graduation.
“Whether you’ve planned to join a sorority your entire life or just have an inkling of interest, fall recruitment is the best way to see if joining one is right for you,” said Stephanie Ralls, public relations chair for UM’s Panhellenic Council, the governing body for sorority life at the University.
Sorority recruitment will begin with an orientation at 8 p.m. Monday, Sept. 5, in the University Center Ballroom, where recruitment counselors will go over the schedule and answer questions. Tuesday through Friday, Sept. 6-9, participants can get to know members of the Alpha Phi, Delta Gamma, Kappa Alpha Theta and Kappa Kappa Gamma sororities, tour chapter houses and learn about each chapter’s philanthropy, scholarship and social programming.
Those who choose to join a sorority will meet their new chapters during Bid Day activities, which start at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 10, on the Oval.
Chapters also will have booths set up in several residence halls, the University Center and on the Oval throughout the week of Aug. 29-Sept. 2 to answer questions and sign women up for recruitment. Registration costs $20, and participants will receive a T-shirt and other Greek Life prizes.
