The BEST Recruitment Advice

All summer has been leading up to this moment! In just a few short hours we will see all of you at McKimmon for the first rounds of recruitment! Have any questions? Contact your Rho Chi - she can give you directions to which parking deck you will be catching the bus at, calm any last minute nerves and she will, of course, gladly answer any outfit questions! We can't wait to meet you all! In the meantime, check out our Rho Chi's best advice for recruitment!


You may have heard of or seen the abbreviation "PNM" around a lot recently, and some of you are probably a little confused! In Sorority Recruitment Land, the term "PNM" stands for "Potential New Member". The women who have signed up for recruitment and are looking to join a chapter are all considered PNMs! While recruitment is hard for everybody, it's especially stressful for those that are going through - after all, chapter members and Rho Chis at least know what to expect! The best, all-encompassing advice we can give you is to not sweat the small stuff! Here are a few things our Rho Chi's felt were the most stressful moments of recruitment when they went through!

Sigma Rho Chis

By now, you all should have heard from your Rho Chi! We hope you've gotten a chance to meet with them (or just had a chance to talk with them!) and are feeling comfortable enough to ask questions and ask for advice! These girls will be your lifeline during recruitment - they're there for literally any problem that pops up! No matter how embarrassing, awkward or uncomfortable you may feel, please don't hesitate to contact your Rho Chi or any other.  Recruitment is a stressful process for everyone involved, but these girls have been working hard all summer to make sure that you all have the best experience possible! There is so much dedication and passion behind this group of women, and everyone is so excited to welcome you to the Greek community and help you find your home. Wondering why these girls were willing to give up their letters to help you find yours? We asked them why they wanted to be Sigma Rho Chis and here is what they had to say!


If you're reading this, you've probably already signed up for recruitment - and it's a good thing, too, because the application is now closed! Our chapters can't wait to meet you this Friday! Each chapter and your Sigma Rho Chi's (recruitment counselors) have been preparing for you all summer. Today you will be getting a call from your Sigma Rho Chi setting up a time for you to meet and get to know your Rho Chi group! Essentially your Rho Chi will be your "big sister" throughout the process - there to guide you and answer any and all questions you might have, and to give unbiased advice when you need it! You'll get to know your Rho Chi better when you meet up and throughout the recruitment process, but before then a few of them want to share with you why they decided to go through recruitment!

Going Through Recruitment As An Upperclassman

Whether you are a freshmen who's been dreaming of going through recruitment since before graduation or it's taken you a year (or two! or three!) to warm up to the idea of Greek Life, we hope you are getting an idea of what it's like to be Greek at NC State and that our Sigma Rho Chi's advice is helping you decide what the best move for you is.  Today our recruitment counselors want to spread the word about rushing as an upperclassman! While it's true that a lot of freshmen are the ones rushing, there's a ton of sophomores, juniors and even seniors, who go through the process each year. Here's our recruitment counselor's advice for these women:
