Spring recruitment, also called Spring COB, is an informal recruitment process which will be held on January 29th, 2023 from 7-9pm in the Union Ballroom. This is different from the formal recruitment process Panhellenic runs in the fall.
Not all 14 of our chapters on campus participate in Spring Recruitment. Spring recruitment is an informal process where you can chat with chapter members who are participating. The participating chapters will be announced closer to the event.
This year, each chapter will give a presentation giving an overview of their Philanthropy, Sisterhood, and Values. At the end of the presentations, Potential New Members will have the chance to talk with chapters who are participating in Continuous Open Bidding. Here, PNMs will get the opportunity to talk to sisters, ask questions, and get more information about upcoming recruitment events.
Q & A
Q: What is Spring Informal Recruitment?
A: Spring Informal Recruitment, or Spring COB, is an event where potential new members (PNMs) have the opportunity to learn more about some of our chapters and potentially receive a bid through COB.
Q: What is COB?
A: Continuous Open Bidding (COB) is an informal recruitment process that allows Panhellenic sororities to continue to recruit new members throughout the school year, after formal recruitment has ended. COB is different from the formal recruitment process as it is a casual strand of events where a potential new member can chat with sisters of participating chapters. It also differs from Formal Recruitment in the fact that not all sororities hold COB events.
Q: Are you eligible?
A: If you did not receive a bid in fall 2022, sign the MRABA in fall 2022, or have not been initiated into a sorority, you are eligible. If you are interested in joining our community sign up for Meet the Chapters!
