The Auburn Panhellenic Council and Auburn Greek Life have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 developments and its potential impact on our fall recruitment experience. We also reviewed recommendations from the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC), the governing body of the 26 member organization sororities, who recently released a Recruitment Contingencies Task Force Report encouraging the use of virtual and/or in-person recruitment with physical distancing guidelines. In collaboration with Greek Life, chapter leadership, advisors, campus partners, and NPC representatives, Auburn Panhellenic revised the recruitment format to enhance the safety of our community.
Revised Schedule and Format
The revised dates for Primary Recruitment are August 8-15. All Rounds will be held virtually.
Information about Bid Day
Bid Day (August 15):
To limit the number of people on campus for Bid Day, parents and guests are not permitted. Chapters may host virtual meetings with parents after recruitment. You will still have the opportunity to visit the chapter who offered you a bid. We recommend you wear a loose fitting/cooling top, shorts and comfortable shoes. Once you arrive at your chapter’s location, you will receive a jersey with your new sorority letters wear on top of your clothes. Do not forget your mask!
