Nervous about Recruitment? Don't be! Here are some helpful tips as you go through the Recruitment process...
(1) Get to know people: Recruitment is a fantastic opportunity to meet other girls of all different hometowns, backgrounds, and even years in school. The friends you meet during Recruitment could end up sticking for life.
(2) Keep an open mind: Regardless of anything you've heard about particular chapters or the Greek system as a whole, come in with an unbiased and positive outlook.
(3) Ask questions: Get to know what Greek membership can add to your college experience.
(4) Have fun and RELAX: Recruitment activities are planned as a way for you to get to know the personalities of the chapters in a relaxed setting, and for us to get to know you. We all want you to have fun!
(5) Be yourself: This is the most important. We love you for being you. Stay true to yourself and let your personality shine through for us to see!!!
See you in the Fall!
a message from the recruitment team
From all of us here at Theta Iota: WELCOME TO GEORGETOWN'S PANHELLENIC RECRUITMENT!
Speaking as someone who was hesitant to participate in Recruitment and join a Greek organization, I understand any and all of your possible reservations. The idea of speaking to so many women in such a short period of time can seem daunting, but I assure you that Recruitment here at Georgetown is a very fun and rewarding experience that we put our heart and soul into, something that we have tailor-made to our unique Greek life here on campus.
Throughout the rounds of Recruitment, potential new members will have the opportunity to meet women from each of Georgetown's two Panhellenic organizations, Kappa Alpha Theta and Kappa Kappa Gamma, while also fostering relationships with other potential new members in their Recruitment groups. Potential new members will gain insight into what our Theta sisters are involved in on campus, our philanthropic partnership with the Court Appointed Special Advocates program of Washington, D.C., and an overall well-rounded snapshot of our Theta sisterhood, which we hold very near and dear to our hearts.
As members of Kappa Alpha Theta, we are challenged to be our best, encouraged to pursue new opportunities, and supported every step of the way. We are devoted to our values of intellectual curiosity, leadership potential, service to our community, and personal excellence, values that we inspire and foster in each of our sisters here at Georgetown.
On behalf of the Theta Iota chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta, we cannot wait to meet all of the amazing women who will participate in this year's Panhellenic Recruitment at Georgetown. The Greek Life community at Georgetown is so unique and special, and the sisterhood that us Thetas have developed here on campus is truly remarkable.
Theta love and mine,
Caroline Mancini, Chief Recruiting Officer 2020
