12116540_10207993805388760_116397563_o-2Hey guys! Sorority recruitment is coming up and I have been getting a lot of questions to do a video about tips for holding the perfect conversation between a Potential New Member and a sister!

The biggest thing that helped me was that I jotted down questions to ask the sister just in case the sister was not asking me most of the questions. A PNM is not usually supposed to be the “question asker”, but if there is too much awkward silence, you might have to take the wheel!

QUESTIONS THAT A PNM CAN ASK A SISTER

  1. Why did you decide to go through recruitment?
  2. What was your favorite philanthropy that you participated in and why?
  3. Were you an in-state or out-of-state student?
  4. If they say out-of-state ask, How was the transition moving to a different state and how did your sorority help with that situation?
  5. If in-state ask, Even though you are close to home do you ever get homesick, if so how does your sorority help with that situation?
  6. Are you involved in any other organizations, if so what are they?
  7. Ask they to define terms that you are confused about, for example, What is a philanthropy event?
  8. How do you balance your time between academics, school and sorority events?
  9. What is your academic program like?
  10. Are you required to have a certain amount of study hours?
  11. Do you have a specific place for studying in the house?
  12. How much time commitment is a sorority?
  13. What was your favorite social and why?

WHAT NOT TO ASK DURING RECRUITMENT

  1. The four B’s: Boys, Booze, Bars & Bibles.
  2. Do not talk about another specific sorority.
  3. Netflix/ TV shows/ Movies, take advantage of the time to find out about the sorority!
  4. Don’t ask what a certain symbol means because it is probably ritual which means you will only find out once your are initiated!
