STEP 1- Register with Fort Worth Panhellenic
You may register with Fort Worth Panhellenic by going to our register tab.
Please register ASAP. Preferably before the April 15th deadline. Our Master List Registration will close on April 15th for new registrations. You can make changes to existing registrations until May 1st.
Registering early allows the local Panhellenic time to ensure your information is passed onto local alumnae groups.
Registering with the local Panhellenic allows us to distribute information you provide to the area reference chairwomen. They will then compile and and send to the proper college to ensure that your accomplishments are highlighted and publicized to the university women.
STEP 2- Compiling and Distributing Information Packets
Before compiling recruitment packets, verify with your reference/letter writers to see what they require and what your specific college needs (PAPER OR DIGITAL AND HOW MANY). Information packets are to be distributed to alumna who will write references or letters of support. Start checking with friends, your mother's friends, people you have worked for, etc. to find out if they were in a sorority and would write a recommendation or letter or support for you. Your information packet should consist of a resume, transcript and photographs.
Resume: Your resume does not need to be limited to one page for purposes of recruitment. Do not use your college application resume. This resume should be two to three pages and have as much information as possible about you. Please specify awards so the writer can go into detail.
Transcript: An official copy of your transcript is not required.
Photographs: Photographs in your packet should be recent. One full length and one close up photo are preferred. These do not need to be professional photos, informal snapshots are fine. Sorority members will use these to identify you for recruitment. Do not use themed photos or photographs with animals.
NOTE: It is a nice touch to send a handwritten thank you note thanking the alumna for their effort. Write the note a few weeks after giving them your information. They will appreciate it and if they have not already written their recommendation for you the note will serve as a reminder for them to do it.
STEP 3- Register with your College Panhellenic! This will cost money.
Registering with the Fort Worth Panhellenic does NOT register you with your college Panhellenic.
You must register separately with your university. BE MINDFUL OF THEIR DEADLINES.
Contact the student activities office of your chosen college or university or access the fraternity/sorority life page on the university's website to register. Do not skip this step.
Remember: It is the responsibility of the sorority members and NOT the potential new member to obtain these recommendations/letters. However, it is to your advantage to network among family, friends, teachers and acquaintances to secure your own recommendations. The Alumna who agrees tosupport you is responsible for mailing the recommendation to their local reference chairwoman. Many of the Texas Schools and other major universities have a deadline of June 1 to receive this information. You will want to be done with this early so you can enjoy your graduation activities.
