The Delta State University Panhellenic Association is composed of Greek women interested in strengthening the bonds among the sororities. Its purposes are to maintain a high standard of sorority life and interfraternity relationships within the University, to further intellectual accomplishment and sound scholarship, and to cooperate with the college administration in the maintenance of high social standards.

Letters of Recommendation

There is a supplemental items list where you may submit Letters of Recommendation (not required).

What is a Letter of Recommendation? A Letter of Recommendation, commonly referred to as a ‘Rec Letter,’ is a form filled out by an alumna of a sorority on behalf of a PNM. The recommendation letter generally speaks about your character and verifies accomplishments, grades, and activities you are involved in. The alumna should refer to the national website of her affiliation (her Chapter’s National Headquarters) for more information on these forms as they vary from sorority to sorority.  It is not the PNMs responsibility to provide her own letters. However, each woman going through recruitment is encouraged to have a letter of recommendation for each chapter, but they are by no means necessary.

So, don’t stress if you do not know anyone who can write you a letter of recommendation! It is ultimately the responsibility of the sorority to obtain a letter of recommendation for you. You will not know if a chapter receives your letter of recommendation, you must trust the alumna who you have asked to write your letter of recommendation. If you know an alumna has agreed to send a Letter, we encourage you to send her a thank you note promptly, it may help remind her to complete the Letter.

All Letters may be emailed directly to the chapter:

 

tridelta@deltastate.edu

kappadelta@deltastate.edu

phimu@deltastate.edu

What if I don’t know anyone who could write me a Letter of Recommendation? We encourage you to consider family, friends, parent’s work colleagues, or other people within your life that you may not be aware they are a sorority woman. In exhausting the first option, another avenue is reaching out to local Alumnae Panhellenic Associations which represent all 26 (inter)national sororities within the National Panhellenic Conference.

Here is a list of our most popular Alumnae Panhellenic groups:

Spring Socials

Spring Socials may be a first step to learning about DSU Panhellenic life and getting to know our current chapter members.  Each Chapter hosts events throughout springtime. If you are interested in attending a spring social, contact each Chapter by emailing them below:

Delta Delta Delta – tridelta@deltastate.edu

Kappa Delta – kappadelta@deltastate.edu

Phi Mu – phimu@deltastate.edu

Continuous Open Bidding

Continuous Open Bidding or “COB”, may also be available for women who cannot attend FNMR Week. COB is very casual and is not as structured as FNMR.

Unlike FNMR, there are no silence rules, no long afternoons of attending event after event after event to meet each Chapter. Dates and Chapter eligibility to COB is determined by the sitting Panhellenic Council each semester. Therefore, when a sorority is eligible to participate in COB, they simply contact a potential new member on their own and hold a series of informal events. Each chapter does it differently. Some might go to dinner, host a game night in their Chapter Room, or invite PNMs to participate in DSU athletic events. No matter the event style or structure, they are always a great way to meet people.

For more information regarding Recruitment, Formal or COB, contact the Panhellenic Council by email at ebranton@deltastate.edu or by phone at 662-846-4666.
