Formal Recruitment

In the fall quarter, The Davis Collegiate Panhellenic Association has Formal Recruitment. Formal Recruitment is a mutual selection process that allows potential members the opportunity to become acquainted with as many sororities as possible so they may make informed decisions concerning membership. During Formal Recruitment, prospective members will meet and talk to members of the chapters in the Panhellenic community. In addition, prospective members will have the opportunity to learn about each sorority, meet tons of new people, and tour the Panhellenic chapter facilities in Davis.

Informal Recruitment

In the winter and spring quarters, some chapters will have informal recruitment where chapters hold events on their own. For more information about DCPA chapters and their individual recruitment events, please visit the chapter pages to contact the chapters directly.
