Recruitment is the main way to give potential new members a look into sorority life. All five sororities at RPI will be participating in Fall 2011 Recruitment: Alpha Gamma Delta, Alpha Omega Epsilon, Alpha Phi, Pi Beta Phi, and Sigma Delta. At each recruitment event, women will have the opportunity to get to know each house and ask questions about academics, finances, new member programs, scholarship, philanthropy, and sorority life in general.
Throughout the spring and after formal recruitment in the fall, a process called “continuous open recruitment” may occur, where a house may offer a potential new member a bid at any time. It is important to note that this bid is binding and prohibits the new member from accepting a bid from any other house for one year.
