Why you should go through recruitment from the perspective of three ZTAs:
A Letter from our VP of Recruitment:
Dear Potential New Member,
For many of you, your senior year of high school did not end the way you had expected. I am so sorry that you were unable to have many of the experiences you were looking forward to. In a time filled with uncertainty and disappointment, I want you to know that there are so many opportunities and friends waiting for you here at Iowa, and we can’t wait to welcome you to our campus!
One thing that has remained constant for me during this difficult time has been the support that I have received from my sisters in Zeta Tau Alpha. This is why I am so happy that you have made the decision to go through Primary Recruitment! The recruitment process may look a bit different this year, but the overall outcome is still the same; you have the opportunity to join an organization in which you will meet your best friends and make lifelong connections. I can confidently say that deciding to join a sorority has positively impacted my college experience tremendously, and I hope that you will soon be able to say so as well!
When I went through recruitment as a freshman, I had no idea what do expect. It is common to feel nervous and easy to feel the need to impress the women inside each house, but in reality we are only looking for you to be your most authentic self. Show the women in each chapter what you are passionate about, make connections over shared values, ask questions about each chapter, and worry less about every conversation being perfect, because in the end you will find the home that suits you best. A virtual recruitment is new for all of us, meaning a senior chapter member is just as unfamiliar and nervous as you are. While it is not what we originally expected, I am so excited to adapt to a new version of this process together in order to get to know you all!
It is normal to have questions about an experience you have yet to have, so don’t be afraid to reach out to a member of the Panhellenic community and ask away! If you haven’t already registered, I hope we can help convince you to do so, because making the decision to Go Greek will change your life forever. As the process approaches, take a deep breath, keep an open mind, and, most importantly, have FUN while you find your home away from home!
