About Panhellenic Recruitment
Recruitment is the main process that NPC affiliated sororities at USC Upstate use to recruit new members. This process is different from the process for seeking membership in a National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) sorority (Delta Sigma Theta, Zeta Phi Beta, and Sigma Gamma Rho). If you are interested in joining an NPHC sorority, individual chapters select their membership event dates, which occur throughout the year. For additional information regarding NPHC organizations, please contact the Office of Student Life at 503-5122.
Panhellenic Recruitment is open to any currently enrolled USC Upstate student regardless of race, age, color, religion, national origin, disability, veteran status or sexual orientation. Students must have a 2.5 GPA to participate in Recruitment (first year students will use HS GPA for consideration, transfer students will use incoming collegiate GPA).
It is important to recognize that Recruitment is a selection process. The Panhellenic Advisor and Recruitment Counselors (Nu Chi’s) will explain the process in detail throughout the week. Each PNM will be assigned to a group led by 2 Nu Chi’s who will be available during the entire process to answer questions. For more information, please view the Panhellinic Recruitment Guide (pdf).
