Fraternity & Sorority Recruitment Begins This Winter

The start of January marks a lot at Northwestern – a new quarter, winter weather, Dance Marathon season, and fraternity and sorority recruitment.

Just as students are arriving back on campus for winter quarter, Panhellenic Association (PHA) starts its week-long recruitment process, marked by women visiting all the sorority houses in the quad and deciding which sorority is the right fit for them.

But for Fraternity and Sorority Life (FSL), PHA recruitment is just one of multiple processes throughout the year. FSL advises four councils – PHA, Interfraternity Council (IFC), Multicultural Greek Council (MGC), and National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC).
