I am a spring sophomore transfer student. Will I be able to move in to my dorm prior to/during recruitment? Will I be able to participate in all recruitment activities AND all spring orientation activities?
As for housing, that is not done through us so you have to check with the University and Residence Life. As long as you meet all of the requirements for a transfer student, found on our website http://www.elon.edu/e-web/students/greek_life/glphcspringrecruitment.xhtml, then you can participate in all recruitment activities!
Can I be an incoming freshman and get into a sorority? If not, how long do I have to be at Elon in order to go through the process?
We have a deferred process which means that we hold formal recruitment 1 semester after already being at Elon. Formal recruitment will take place January 25-29th. For more information check out our website: http://www.elon.edu/e-web/students/greek_life/glphcspringrecruitment.xhtml!
One of the reasons that I am not sure of joining a sorority is because of the cost. Is there any way I could get assistance with that?
Every sorority has different payment plans and can work with you for their costs. This differs within all nine organizations, but joining a sorority is still a financial obligation as well as a time commitment!
when does information start coming out for spring recruitment?
You can find this at our website, http://www.elon.edu/e-web/students/greek_life/glphcspringrecruitment.xhtml
Is there a way to wave your GPA (lower than a 2.75) and still be able to rush?
You must have a 2.8 GPA to go through formal recruitment. For more information and appeals please visit our website: http://www.elon.edu/e-web/students/greek_life/glphcspringrecruitment.xhtml
when does registration come out for recruitment?
December 16th, you can find this on our website: http://www.elon.edu/e-web/students/greek_life/glphcspringrecruitment.xhtml
Is junior year too late to rush?
You may rush any year you choose as long as you have a 2.8 GPA. You can find more information on our website http://www.elon.edu/e-web/students/greek_life/glphcspringrecruitment.xhtml
Has registration for recruitment come out yet? If so where can I sign up?
Registration will open December 16th and you can find it on FSL's website:
when this year/how can you apply to be a Pi Chi?
Pi Chi applications will come out in October
Are their certain packets I need to fill out to be considered during the February rush process?
When registration comes out for recruitment, you will just fill in some general questions about yourself.
What are the new sororities coming to Elon in the fall? Will they be open to join if you are a sophomore or junior?
There are no new sororities joining our campus this fall.
If I was a member of a sorority at a different school and transferred to Elon how would that work? Do I have to re rush? Can I only join the sorority I was a member of or can I join a different one? Im not sure how this works
You would join the organization that you are a member of. Remember, you join for life :)
Is there any way for a sophomore to rush in the fall?
Continuous open recruitment would only happen if our organizations are under chapter average. That will not be determined until next fall, and is not guaranteed.
I still haven't gotten my Phi Chi! What should I do?
If you have not received your recruitment counselor yet please make sure that their initial email did not go to your spam folder! If it did not, then there could have been a misspelling when you put in your email on the recruitment application. But no worries, email email@example.com and we will get it figured out!
Have all of the Pi Chi's emailed their groups because everyone I have spoken to received their Pi Chi, yet I have not heard from mine. I know I am registered because I have received confirmation emails.
If you have not received an email from your IIX it might be because you input/misspelled the wrong email address on your recruitment application. If you have not received your Pi Chi, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Can you participate in informal recruitment after formal recruitment when you are on medical leave
No -- you will have to be on campus to participate in recruitment.
How will we know what sororities are participating in informal recruitment after formal recruitment. I know y'all always say you can participate but never tell us how
Recruitment post formal recruitment is something that we will know only after formal recruitment and we process our chapter sizes. YOU will have to take the initiative to contact our office and see if there will be a recruitment period, as well as checking the FSL website.
I submitted my application and payment, but didn't get a confirmation email. I am being told that it was never received and now I cannot go through rush. Is there anyway to appeal this decision?
Unfortunately there is not a way to appeal this decision. Should any of our organizations be taking new members post formal recruitment, and you are eligible, you will be able to participate in recruitment then.
How many girls are rushing and is it true that the office of FSL is making it more competitive to get a bid?
The number of women participating in the recruitment process has not been solidified yet. As to the latter part of your question, that is not true. The FSL office does not affect your ability to receive a bid from an organization if your are eligible to participate in the recruitment process.
From what day to what day does rush actually last?
Recruitment starts the morning of January 27 and concludes with Bid Day on January 31.
Is there any way to join a sorority if you are not available during fake break to rush?
Should our chapters be taking new members post formal spring recruitment, and if you are eligible, then you can join an organization. However, that is not a guaranteed time to join.
When will we hear if we have been granted an appeal?
Our Executive Council is still reviewing appeals and will be notifying all those who have appealed soon.
When will our Pi Chi get in contact with us? We're too excited!
They will be contacting you within the next week.
When will we find out who our Pi Chis are?
They will be contacting you within the next week.
Will there be fall recruitment in 2016?
That will be determined next fall as we get chapter totals from our organizations.
