Frequently Asked Questions
New members bring excitement each year to the Theta Omicron chapter. During Formal Recruitment in the fall, potential new members are guided through the recruitment process with the hope that they will fall in love with their future sorority.
What is recruitment?
Recruitment is a four-day process where girls get to know each of the seven sororities on our campus. During the visit you will meet active members of each chapter that will provide more information and have fun conversations with you! Through this mutual selection process potential new members learn the ideals of each sorority including their philanthropy, sisterhood and social events.
What should I consider when choosing a sorority?
Many girls ask themselves a number of questions when deciding which sorority truly fits them. Some questions to consider when in this position: What values do I admire most? What girls could I call at any time of the day? Which chapter do I see myself spending my college career in? Which chapter has similar values to my own? What girls seemed the most genuine? What letters would I be proud to wear on a daily basis Which chapter fits my budget the best?
The best advice we can give you when meeting actives from each chapter is to be yourself! This is the guaranteed way for you to land the best chapter for you that will provide you with the best opportunities and even better friends and memories.
