Formal Recruitment Attire

Below is a helpful guideline for appropriate recruitment attire, accompanied by photos matching the descriptions provided for each day. Remember, dress to impress but absolutely dress with consideration to comfort – you will be spending long hours walking up and down the row.




Panhellenic Recruitment Kick Off

The event is simply to share more about what recruitment is all about, therefore the attire is extremely casual! Feel free to wear whatever you feel most comfortable in.

Open House Days (Round 1)

Open House Days are the most casual days. Please wear the recruitment shirt or tank chosen during registration with shorts, a skirt, or any bottoms of your choosing.  Sneakers or sandals are appropriate for this round. It is REQUIRED that you wear the Panhellenic t-shirt provided for you at Recruitment Kick Off that was selected upon registration. Please dress for comfort and keep in mind that it will be very hot and you will be doing a lot of walking! It is not necessary to wear heels.  The chapter members will be in casual attire as well! 

Involvement Day (Round 2)

This is a more casual day, and a nice blouse with a skirt is appropriate, as are casual dresses again. Please do not wear heels or wedges because you will be doing a lot of walking inside the houses and going up and down stairs. Dressy, flat sandals are appropriate for this round.

Sisterhood Day (Round 3)

A sundress or something similar is appropriate for Sisterhood Day, and heels become acceptable as you are visiting less houses and therefore doing less walking!  However, feel free to wear sandals as well.

Preference (Round 4)

Preference Ceremonies are a more formal part of the recruitment process. Wear a nice dress on this day, such as one you might wear to an afternoon wedding. Heels or wedges are appropriate during this round.

Bid Day 

Wear jeans or shorts and a white t-shirt, and shoes comfortable enough for the traditional run to the Row! It’s also strongly recommended that you wear a bralette or bandeau under your shirt. You will be given a shirt to wear for the day at your new chapter. 


Keep in mind that these are SUGGESTIONS and that it is NOT necessary or required to purchase anything directly from the boards.
