Letter from the Recruitment Chair
I’m so excited you’re interested in joining the Panhellenic community here at Missouri State University. Formal recruitment is right around the corner and I can’t wait for you to make so many memories. Recruitment is the time to make new friends, form special bonds, and find your new home!
In the fall of 2020, I was in your shoes. I signed up for recruitment in the summer while packing my bags for the new adventure ahead of me. I had no idea what to expect coming to college, but I knew joining a sorority would help me find my place. Although my recruitment experience was online due to Covid-19, I wouldn’t change it for the world because I ran home to Tri Sigma on bid day. In the two years I’ve been in Tri Sigma I’ve found my support system, motivation, best friends, and my forever home! The women in Tri Sigma have truly impacted me in ways I never would have imagined and I will forever be grateful for them.
If you’re on the fence about signing up for recruitment, just do it! Trust your gut, get out of your comfort zone, and go with the flow. Hearing this may seem crazy because it’s easier said than done, but I promise you running home on bid day and meeting your new family will be SO worth it.
Before recruitment starts make sure you have a clear mind. It’s best to go into day 1 with unbiased opinions untouched by rumors and innuendos. You should form your own thoughts when visiting each house because everyone has different experiences. I’ve always said I would end up where I was meant to be, and I truly believe I did!
Wherever your path takes you through this journey I want you to remember three things:
- Take a deep breath when things seem to get stressful. This should be a fun experience!
- Stay positive. Everything works out in the end whether you believe it or not.
- And most importantly, be unapologetically yourself! Everyone loves you for who you are and no one should make you think otherwise.
Tri Sigma is so excited to meet every single one of you, and we wish you the best throughout your recruitment experience! I’ll see you at the Sigmansion doors this fall!
Sigma love and mine,
Membership Recruitment Director
