PHC Sorority Interest

Typically taking place the week before the semester starts, primary recruitment is your chance to meet all 13 National Panhellenic Conference chapters registered with Kansas State University.

This process consists of four rounds:

  • open house,
  • philanthropy & service,
  • sisterhood & house tours,
  • and preference.

You meet sorority women in each chapter, have values-based conversations and ask any questions that you may have about activities, financial obligations, scholarship, new member programs and campus life.

At the end of each round, you will priority rank the chapters you would like to learn most about. Likewise, chapters invite back the women they believe will be a good fit for their chapter. Following recruitment, you will attend a Bid Day celebration, where you receive your official invitation to join just one of the NPC sororities.


Registration for Fall Formal Recruitment opens on May 1st, 2024 and will be open until August 1st, 2024.

Additional Information

Approximately 600 women join our sorority community through the formal recruitment process which takes place the week before school starts each Fall.
