Panhellenic recruitment offers an opportunity to meet chapter members and peers, while learning what each sorority has to offer. Participating in the recruitment process does not require a person to join a chapter, but enables her to explore and learn more about the campus and Fraternity and Sorority community.
Recruitment is also a great way to meet new people and find out about different ways to get involved on campus. This process is intended to be a positive, fun, and enriching experience for everyone who participates.
Registration will begin Monday, May 21st, 2018
There is a $50.00 registration fee, which must be paid in full in order to participate.
You must be registered by August 19th at 11:59pm to participate in Panhellenic recruitment.

Letter from the Panhellenic Vice President of Recruitment
Welcome to Missouri State University! On behalf of the Panhellenic Association, I would like to share how ecstatic I am that you are considering joining the Fraternity and Sorority Life community. Fraternity and Sorority Life has given myself and so many other individuals a way to get involved on campus, gain leadership experience, learn time management, and maintain academic balance. Most importantly, it has given me an opportunity to create genuine friendships that will last a lifetime. I would not have been able to meet the amazing women in our community if it weren’t for our shared values and the values that are unique to each sisterhood; as you begin to start your college career, I encourage you to reflect on those values that you hold near and dear to your heart. In our community, you will find many women who share those same principles and goals, as well as a support system as you begin to navigate and shape your path at Missouri State University. I hope even through all the stress and worries of a new college career, you are able to make recruitment a positive and fun experience. It is my goal that each of you find chapters who encourage and empower you to be the best that you can be while in the Fraternity and Sorority Life community and beyond.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns regarding the recruitment process. I am so thrilled to see you on campus in the fall! Bear up!
Vice President of Recruitment
The Panhellenic community helps motivate and encourage women in the recruitment process to reflect on their own values by using a Values-Based Recruitment process. To find out more about what it means to have a Values-Based Recruitment, click here!
The National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) and its 26 member sororities are values-based organizations. This means that their purposes and missions are rooted in a set of core values. Missouri State University's individual chapters and Panhellenic women ensure that recruitment events are values-based and reflective of the NPC sorority experience.
What do you mean by values?
The Josephson Institute for Ethics says values are the core beliefs or desires that guide or motivate attitudes and actions. Values are central beliefs that determine how we will behave in certain situations. Potential New Members should make recruitment choices based on their personal values.
What is the purpose of values-based recruitment?
- To ensure the future of chapters.
- To make connections and build relationships between chapter members and potential new members (PNMs).
- To discover shared interests and values among chapter members and PNMs.
- To display the high standards held by all NPC member organizations.
How can I prepare for a values-based recruitment?
- To become more aware of your personal values, consider taking an online quiz made to help you identify which are most important to you.
- Do some research on each sororities’ core values and see how they fit in to your own.
