Formal recruitment is a four-round process that places over 900 women into 15 sororities. During each round, potential new members (PNMs) meet sorority women from each chapter and learn about each chapter’s values and character. With each round, PNM’s visit fewer houses as they figure out where they are best suited. After a matching process, PNMs receive a bid card from one of two sororities the PNM visited in Preferential Round. Throughout recruitment, PNM’s and sorority women are not allowed to talk to each other outside rounds to ensure equal treatment.

Additionally, the ISC Executive Board along with our 15 sororities have been actively working to address the lack of diversity and inclusion within greek life. One of our efforts, among many, is that we are hosting a panel for potential new members that are curious to hear from women of underrepresented groups of our ISC Community about their experience in greek life at UVA.
