Panhellenic Council Recruitment

The Panhellenic Council is the governing body of 14 sororities on campus and plans the primary recruitment process. Twelve of the 14 sororities participate in fall formal recruitment.

Sigma Alpha and Sigma Lambda Gamma conduct their own respective recruitment processes. The Panhellenic Executive Council and the Greek Recruitment Counselors (Gamma Chis) compose the recruitment team. The recruitment team ensures that potential members have a positive experience during the process.

Fall Recruitment 2021: August 19 - 29


Register here.  Completion of the registration form, which includes a $150.00 participation fee, is required in order to participate in the primary sorority recruitment process.  It is important to note that primary recruitment at LSU is a mutual selection process and that participation in Recruitment does not guarantee a prospective member an invitation to join a sorority, nor does it obligate her to join. Women interested in participating in recruitment can register online from June 1 through August 6, 2021.

We are so excited that you are interested in joining the LSU sorority community! If you are a freshman OR you will be a new student at LSU this fall you will also have the opportunity to sign up for recruitment when you register for welcome week beginning on June 15, 2021.

What is welcome week? This exciting event serves as the final phase of your orientation to LSU and takes place right before the semester begins so that you can be completely comfortable and prepared to start your experience at LSU. To learn more about welcome week please visit the website here.
