Sororities at Michigan Tech participate in formal recruitment each fall. If you are considering joining a sorority in the fall, you are highly encouraged to participate in formal recruitment. Formal Recruitment is a time to get to know sorority life and allows each potential new member (PNM) the opportunity to attend events and meet members from each sorority.

Joining a sorority is a big decision, so make sure you meet as many women as possible during this time to ensure you find where you fit best when making this lifelong decision. Participating in Formal Recruitment does not mean that you are required to join a sorority. During this time, you are encouraged to learn as much as you can about sorority life so you can make an informed decision.  For more information or if you have any questions, please email

More general information about the Sorority Recruitment process can be found below:

To be eligible to join a sorority as a first semester first-year student at Michigan Tech, you must have at least a 3.0 high school GPA and be in good standing as a student. As a second semester first-year and above, you need to have a 2.50 cumulative Michigan Tech GPA and be in good standing as a student. Please note that these are Michigan Tech minimums, and some sororities choose to have higher GPA requirements. Primary Sorority Recruitment takes place over the course of a week in September, and a full list of events is posted each fall on the Panhellenic Council Involvement Link page.

Spring recruitment is an informal process where each sorority plans their own recruitment events. To find dates and times of recruitment events look for table tents, sandwich boards, and flyers around campus. Bids can be given out at any time throughout the semester.

After recruitment, if you accept a bid, the new member process will begin. Each sorority has a different process and varies in time. In general, a process can last between five to eight weeks and usually ends with a week of chapter events. Michigan Tech is a strictly non-hazing campus and hazing is not tolerated in any way. Recruitment is a fun way to meet new people, attend unique events, and find your new friend group. 

The best thing to keep in mind is how these women want to be your friend and they genuinely want to get to know you. Simply introduce yourself and relax. All sorority women have been in your shoes once so they understand that you may be nervous.
