Round 1 // Greek Day

Sunday, September 22, 2019

Number Visited: All 10 sororities
What to Expect: Previously called Water Parties, this day is very informal and allows you to view each house without decoration and truly learn the ideals of each sorority. You’ll learn about sorority life, including the benefits of membership along with financial, academic, and housing obligations of being a member.
What to Wear: Panhellenic provides you with a Greek day shirt to wear and the rest is up to you, dress is very casual. Wear comfortable shoes, as there is a lot of walking.


Round 2 // Philanthropy Day

Monday, September 23 & Tuesday, September 24, 2019

Number Visited: Up to 8 sororities
What to Expect: Each sorority will share information about their local and national philanthropy. Philanthropy is a huge part of our chapter, so this round can tell you a lot about each sorority. You’ll learn about our philanthropy and community service.
What to Wear: Panhellenic provides you with a philanthropy day shirt to wear and the rest is up to you, again, dress is very casual. Remember to choose comfortable shoes!


Round 3 // Sisterhood Day

Thursday, September 26 & Friday, September 27, 2019

Number Visited: Up to 5 sororities
What to Expect: These highly energetic parties provide an insight into their sisterhood. You’ll talk with members to gain a greater perspective of their sisterhood and how they celebrate their sorority.
What to Wear: Dressy casual attire, such as a dress, skirt or pants with a blouse, paired with shoes that you can walk in comfortably.


Round 4 // Preference

Saturday, September 28, 2019

Number Visited: Up to 2 sororities
What to Expect: As this is the final event of formal recruitment, conversation is intimate and more on the serious side. From the sororities you are invited to for this round, you will select the one(s) you wish to receive a membership invitation. This last round allows you to ask last minute questions about our sorority and help make the decision of which house you feel the most comfortable at.
What to Wear: This round is more formal attire, such as a semi-formal or cocktail dress or business attire, paired with comfortable shoes.


Bid Day

Sunday, September 29, 2019

What to Expect: You’ll meet with your recruitment counselor and group in the Grove to receive your membership invitation.
What to Wear: Shorts or pants and a shirt. New members are given letters when they arrive at the sorority. 


**Please note: Although there is currently no GPA requirement to participate in Formal Recruitment at Ole Miss, scholarship is very important to the Chi Chapter. The chapter average to extend a bid is a 3.0 GPA. Women with below a 3.0 GPA are advised that they are at a greater risk to be released.
