Recruitment Information

Values-based recruitment, which is practiced by all National Panhellenic Conference organizations, focuses on meaningful conversations between collegiate members and Potential New Members with the goal of recruiting women who will have a positive impact on chapters and the Panhellenic community. When a chapter uses Pi Phi's six core values as the foundation on which they recruit their members, a focus is placed on conversation and creating a sincere connection with each woman that walks through the door.

What Pi Beta Phi stands for is not a secret! Our values are included in our mission statement, our tagline and throughout our Ritual. Examples of Pi Phis living our values in their daily life can be found all over our social media, The Arrow® and throughout each chapter.

Formal Recruitment will be held before the start of the Spring semester in January 2020. At USD, the Sorority Life community is constantly growing and is always excited to welcome new members. Every January, sororities participate in NPC Formal Recruitment. There are seven Panhellenic chapters and two multicultural chapters. Potential New Members, women participating in Formal Recruitment, are able to meet Sorority women, engage in conversations, and learn more about what Sorority life is like firsthand. Recruitment lasts a week and is a rewarding experience and the start to lifelong friendships. We look forward to having you join our community!
