College Panhellenic Recruitment Counselor 2022 Application

Dear Recruitment Counselor Applicant,

I am so excited that you are interested in becoming a recruitment counselor! Recruitment counselors serve a vital role before, during, and after primary recruitment for potential new members (PNMs). They serve as leaders, mentors, and guides for PNMs, helping them successfully move through a values-based recruitment process that allows them to explore their own personal and Panhellenic values.

All applicants must be:
• Initiated undergraduate members of one of the recognized sororities on campus.
• In good standing with their inter/national organization and chapter.
• Able to attend all training sessions.
