    Open House Round: 

    Wednesday, 9/21:


    Tentative Start Time: 9:00am

    • Meet your Rho Gamma at 7:45 at the Inverted Fountain.

    Event Description:
    This round of events is focused on the importance and excitement of going Greek!  Each potential new member will visit all participating chapter houses for 25 minutes each. You will attend these events with your recruitment group and Rho Gamma as you walk as a group from house to house. 

    Make sure to eat a good meal before you attend each day.  The afternoons can be long and you will need to keep your energy up.  You are expected to bring snacks to eat in between events, and you will get a lunch break in the middle of the day.

    What To Talk About:
    Since this event is mostly intended to give you a glimpse of what recruitment will be like, ask questions that will be helpful to you throughout the week. Worry less about trying to impress sorority members and concentrate more on orienting yourself with the environment. Have fun and keep an open mind, meeting as many members from different sororities as possible.  Chapters will also be explaining the financial costs of joining.


    • After this round, you will choose your 9 favorite chapters and then rank the remaining 3 in preferential order.
