Continuous Open Bidding

This option is sometimes available -- depending on limiting factors -- shortly after the close of the annual fall K-State Panhellenic Sorority Formal Membership Recruitment process through the last day of classes each spring, and to currently enrolled K-State women only.

You may contact the Office of Greek Affairs or chapters directly to see if they are actively recruiting potential members. Chapter contact information can be found here.

To register for recruitment please fill out the COB Registration Form. This information will be distributed to chapters that are able to participate in COB.

How it works

Any chapter whose membership roster falls below 166 members is eligible for continuous open bidding (COB). Some years there are many options, and others there might not be any openings until the spring semester. Typically the most openings exist at the start of the spring semester. If you are interested in COB, please e-mail Molly DeBusk (, Panhellenic Council Director of Continuous Open Bidding and Retention. She will offer direction to you through the process.
