Panhel Recruitment

The Panhellenic Association (Panhel or Panhellenic) holds a formal recruitment process at the beginning of the spring semester for the 11 sororities. Formal recruitment is a structured process where both potential new members (PNMs) and current sorority members get to know each other throughout four rounds of recruitment events. Formal recruitment ends with Bid Day, where PNMs may receive an invitation to join one sorority (a bid). Interested women must register online to participate in formal recruitment

Following formal recruitment some chapters will choose to hold informal recruitment events, referred to as Continuous Open Bidding/Recruitment (COB/COR). These events primarily take place at the start of fall semesters. Continuous recruitment is a way for potential new members and sorority members to get to know each other in an informal environment. Not all sororities participate or are eligible to hold continuous recruitment events. The Panhellenic Association does not require registration for continuous recruitment.

  • Panhellenic Continuous Open Bidding (COB) Membership Acceptance Binding Agreement - Fall semesters will be used for informal recruitment processes for Panhellenic. If a chapter is below total (medium chapter size) and wishes to have a new member class, then a COB Membership Acceptance Binding Agreement needs to be filled out by the Potential New Member (PNM). This Agreement needs to be turned in 24 hours after the date signed to the Panhellenic Advisor, Travis Roberts at travis_roberts@gwu.edu or turned into his mailbox on the 5th floor of the Marvin Center.
