PanHel Recruitment

Heather, from PanHel

  • Panhel interested in doing fall recruitment

  • will be four days (Labor Day weekend, same as fraternity Rush)
  • will move some recruitment to CPW
  • takes away problem of having to disaffiliate PRCs
  • not looking to increase number of people living in houses
  • looking to make members feel a part of both dorm and Panhel communities
  • would take effect fall 2007 (soonest possible date)
  • wouldn't take away people from dorm orientations, sisters encouraged to interact with new freshmen at dorms
  • possibly hold sorority/dorm combined events
  • would help financially to have women pay dues for fall semester
  • spring recruitment wouldn't exist in any form
  • would increase number of early returns (would be good for dorms, as there would be more upperclassmen around to fill buildings)
  • once they recruit women, would be good to support them being involved in the dorm communities

//DormCon would support if sisters would be willing to work in dorms during Orientation as well
