1. Make an effort to get to know the girls in your Pi Chi Group!
Recruitment is a long process and usually takes place before school even begins, meaning there is a good chance you haven’t had time to make many friends yet at your new school. Take the opportunity to grab a coffee, meet up for dinner, or text someone in your Pi Chi group for Round 1 wardrobe advice. There is a good chance that someone in your Pi Chi group will end up being your sister at the end of recruitment! If nothing else, it is nice to have someone to help you get through the never-ending days of recruitment!
2. Don’t feel like you need to rock the “jacks”!
I know a lot of schools have “suggested” outfits for each round of recruitment, and I am definitely not saying to go against what they have suggested, but don’t be afraid to show YOUR style. Don’t want to curl your hair? Go ahead and rock the high pony! Never heard of these things called Jack Rogers? I hadn’t either. Feel free to wear those cool sandals you love. Be yourself and you will not only feel better, but sororities will take notice!
3. Be nice no matter what house you are in!
You might be tempted to shut down at the end of a long day when you go into your last house. My advice? Be nice. Have a cool conversation. You never know, that girl you talk to could be your lab TA or a partner in a group project. Keep your mind open to the possibility that you could have a conversation with someone that completely turns around your thoughts on which house you like! Be a nice human!
