Primary Fall Recruitment 

What is Primary Fall Recruitment?

Primary fall recruitment is a formalized mutual selection process by which a student is guaranteed to see all 13 NPC chapters. It is the main process the National Panhellenic Conference sororities use to recruit new members. The students begin by seeing all 13 chapters during the first round, this year on zoom, but the remaining in-person rounds are by invitation only. 

Participation in formal recruitment does not guarantee an invitiation to join a sorority, nor does it obligate a student to join. However, approximately 80% - 85% of the students participating in formal recruitment over the last 5 years have years have joined a NPC sorority at the weeks conclusion. Of the joining group, 90% received their first choice on bid day.

What is COB?

Continuous Open Bidding or COB is a way for sororities to extend bids during the school year should spaces become available. It's very casual and unstructured and, since not every sorority participates, it's not easy to tell which sororities will participate in a given semester. It doesn't operate on a schedule, so some sororities will complete their COB process before another begins it. COB is a great way to join a Panhellenic sorority if you are interested!
