A letter to a Potential new sorority member

Recent Graduate,

Are you interested in joining a sorority when you attend college?  The Elmhurst Area Panhellenic Association would like to help.  We offer a free service to write recommendations for Elmhurst women planning to go through membership recruitment, or rush, to join a sorority.  

College sorority chapters function as an extended family unit, providing a “home away from home” environment that encourages personal growth. During your college years, sororities emphasize and encourage scholarship, university involvement, leadership, philanthropic efforts, and lifelong friendships.

Each year sororities increase their membership through a mutual selection process called membership recruitment, which includes open houses and informal gatherings.  Recruitment gives new students a chance to meet girls in different sororities on their campus.  It also gives the sorority members a chance to meet you.  The Elmhurst Area Alumnae Panhellenic Association members offer to help Elmhurst residents in the membership recruitment process by writing letters of recommendation for the residents to the members’ sororities as an introduction.

This does not obligate you to go through recruitment, nor is it a guarantee of acceptance in any sorority.  Remember, you still must register for recruitment/rush with your university Panhellenic organization.  Contact your university or check with their Panhellenic or Greek life office if you have not received any information from them. 

Please contact us if you have any questions.

Elmhurst Area Panhellenic Association


One of the activities members of Elmhurst Panhellenic is proud to support is writing recommendations for sorority recruitment for our Elmhurst young ladies. We are happy to write recommendations for sorority recruitment. Many schools request recommendations by mid-summer so please don't delay in completing your questionnaire to help us learn more about you.

The deadline to submit your Recruitment Questionnaire, resume, and photo is June 28, 2024
