Recruitment

Dear Future Panhellenic Women, 

Welcome to the Rutgers Panhellenic Recruitment page! Whether you are new to Rutgers or familiar with the campus, the Panhellenic community is a great place to look if you’re hoping to get involved. We are fortunate to have such an amazing Greek Life here at Rutgers with our members not only being involved around campus but actively volunteering within the surrounding area as well. This thriving community consists of 10 different organizations with over 1,400 women involved and our community is not done growing yet! Throughout their journey, each woman strives to uphold our pillars of scholarship, leadership, service and lifelong friendship in their day to day life.

I always knew that I wanted to attend a large university, but once I got here, it was hard feeling so small amongst so many people. When I joined Greek life, it opened so many doors to opportunities and friendships that I couldn't have gained anywhere else! I learned so many skills being a member and in the leadership roles I have taken on that will follow me for the rest of my life.

Each member’s experience is very different and unique but many graduating seniors look back on our membership with countless memories of love, laughters, strength, and growth.

There is a place for every woman at Rutgers here in Greek life, and it is my job to help you find yours! I can't wait to see what this growing community has in store over the next year!

Amanda Foster
Vice President of Recruitment, Rutgers Panhellenic Council 

Sorority Stories 

 "I went Greek because I wanted to be a part of something bigger than myself. Greek life at Rutgers provides the opportunity for students to give back to the people of New Brunswick and Rutgers in ways they didn't know were possible. As a member of the Greek community, I wanted to find a place to call home, make connections, and expand my horizons. All of which wouldn't have been possible if I hadn't made the decision to go Greek and I'm proud of that choice every day."

~ Brooke

"I joined Greek life because my older sister was in SDT and instantly got me interested in it. I love helping people and because Greek life entails doing a lot of philanthropic work, I knew it was right for me. I've grown so much as a person by being a member of Sigma Delta Tau, it's an experience I'll never forget."

~ Chrissy

"I never planned on joining Greek life but after transferring to Rutgers I felt a bit lost at such a huge school. I ended up joining a sorority and was introduced to so many Greek women who shared similar interests and values with me, and was able to find my niche within Rutgers."

~ Erin

"I joined Greek life because I had a really bad freshman first semester, and I was lonely! In high school my cross country team was a tight knit group so I had these best friends I'd see every day and I wanted the same thing in college, and being in a sorority helped me achieve kind of the same feeling because I met this group of best friends that I can't imagine not having. And all of my sisters are so wonderful, I love seeing familiar faces on campus and just feeling more like Rutgers is where I belong!"

What are the benefits of Greek Life? 

Academic Support & Excellence: All Greek organizations at Rutgers require a minimum GPA to be considered for active membership. To accommodate this requirement, many chapters provide study groups, incentives and rewards, study sessions or mentoring programs. Thanks, in part to the chapter’s academic goals and these programs, the Panhellenic sorority average GPA is above the All-Women’s GPA, and the IFC fraternity average GPA is above the All-Men’s.

Lifelong Friends: College is a time to develop lasting friendships and meaningful relationships. Greeks share great moments and challenges during their college years. Having a support system of brothers and sisters eases the transition to post-graduate life, and gives members a family away from home.

Career Networking: All inter/national sororities and fraternities have networking systems in place to help members connect to others in their career path. Local alumni associations are great contacts for internships, references, and prospective job interviews.

Community Service & Philanthropy: Every Greek organization at Rutgers were created to include service to others. Each year Rutgers Greeks raise money and hold events to benefit national and local philanthropies. Each organization also requires volunteer hours from members.
