Recruitment Rules 

The following rules have been composed of NPC Unanimous Agreements, NPC Policies and recommendations for recruitment, ideas and previous rules discussed by the 2015-2016 Recruitment Chair women of the USD sororities. These rules were passed by a majority vote during the Spring Recruitment Meetings and ratified by vote of the Panhellenic Council. All chapters and their alumnae are expected to know, understand, and follow all of the recruitment rules. There is an overall expectation of maturity, respect, and Panhellenic friendship for all sorority members, throughout the year, and especially during formal recruitment.
