Spring Recruitment

Spring recruitment, also called Spring COB, is an informal recruitment process held on zoom. 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.

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 semester.

Q: Are you eligible?

A: If you did not receive a bid in fall 2020 or have not been initiated into a sorority, you are eligible.

Q: What should I expect on January 31st?

A: This event will take place on January 31st, 12PM-5PM via zoom. Shortly before the event, you will receive a "passport", which will be your itinerary for the afternoon. This will include when you meet with each of the participating chapters. Each PNM will have 20 minutes with each chapter to get to know more about them.

Q: Who is going to be there?

A: There will be plenty of women looking to learn more about the Panhellenic Community and potentially join one of our sororities. Please note, not all of the chapters in the Panhellenic community will be participating. The chapters that are attending will be announced in mid-January.

Q: Where do I go for updates on this event?
A: Follow our Instagram @msu_panhel for updates on all things Panhellenic. Our website and Facebook are regularly updated as well.
