Put your best foot forward by looking presentable. This doesn’t mean wearing layers of makeup or spending your pay cheque on new clothes; it means arriving well-rested and polished to every round of recruitment.
Try to make friends and feel connections. Your time at each sorority will fly by but you cannot expect to find a home if you sit back and let them do the work. Make the effort to get to know the women!
Avoid talking about touchy subjects such as religion, politics, partying, or anything that could make anybody uncomfortable.
Keep your opinions to yourself and do not allow yourself to be influenced by others. Joining a sorority is a personal decision and you should not let others’ words or rumors change your opinion of a certain sorority.
Read the conversation tips for each round and stay informed!
If you do not get invited back to your top selections, do not be disappointed. Be open-minded and stick it out ‘til the end!
There is no “best” or “worst” chapter. Each chapter does the same activities (sports, formals, etc.) and has its own strengths and weaknesses. Most importantly, the women in each chapter have found a home in it and there is a home waiting for you in UBC Sororities!
Bring must-have items such as mints, lip gloss, and oil-blotting sheets to name a few. Do not wear strong perfume as it will be very crowded with so many girls in the same room!
The rooms can get quite hot so it’s best not to wear clothing that’s too warm.
Organize your time well during recruitment. As these are long days, make sure you are on top of your schoolwork and don’t let it all pile up. We all came to UBC to get a degree so make sure that you prioritize!
