After last week’s Tips & Tricks article, “The Truth About Sorority Recruitment Photos”, I decided to follow up with some examples of images that would be good options to send in for recruitment!
Here are some quick TIPS you should remember:
- When submitting your recruitment packet, make sure to include a headshot, a ¾ body shot, and a full-length image.
- It’s a great idea to use one of your recruitment photos as your social media profile picture. Fair warning: recruitment teams will look on your social media accounts and they might even pull a picture off of your Facebook that the entire chapter could see. That said, keep it classy.
- Be on the lookout for sorority recruitment deadlines. For the Texans out there, according to a local Panhellenic rep, all paperwork, references, etc. need to be turned in to the chapters by June 1 at the University of Texas and July 1 at all other public universities. You can look on your specific college’s Panhellenic website for more details and information. It is also recommended to have all of your packets sent to the alumni by April 1 so they have enough time to write your letters. (***This was true for the past year, so check with your university or local Panhellenic group for dates for the upcoming school year)
- If you have any questions or need a reference, be sure to reach out alumni groups in your area. They have the answers to all of your questions about recommendation letters, deadlines, packets, etc.
