On behalf of our entire community of sorority women, I congratulate you on your acceptance and decision to attend RPI. I understand your commitment to academics has positioned you for success at this prestigious school and appreciate that you chose to diversify your college experience by exploring Greek Life. Your years here will include many exciting learning experiences, but perhaps none as well-rounded and memorable as being a member of a Greek organization. The Greek community at RPI has enhanced the lives of thousands of students since 1825 and can add many valuable dimensions to your college experience. The Panhellenic Council on which I serve as President, and our 5 sororities on campus are eagerly awaiting your participation in what is sure to be a rewarding and unique experience.
Recruitment will allow you the opportunity to meet as many Greek women as possible and learn about each organization, Panhellenic, and the Greek community. In joining any sorority, you become part of the Panhellenic community, rather than a member of just one sorority. By considering Panhellenic as a whole, you can look at all sororities with an open mind. Please do not rule out any sorority before Recruitment starts or before learning first-hand what each sorority has to offer. After all, every sorority shares common goals of sisterhood, and we are all part of Panhellenic.
Involvement in a sorority can be a positive contribution to your collegiate experience through friendship, leadership, academics, philanthropy, networking opportunities, and personal growth. No matter which sorority you choose, the Panhellenic friendships you form will be lifelong. Beginning with your first day as a new member, you will be part of a group of women with whom you can share your college experience. A sorority is much more than just an organization with meeting times – it is a group of women drawn together by mutual goals, trust, and respect. Once again, I am pleased you have chosen to explore the Greek Community and sorority life. I wish you the best in your future at RPI.
In Panhellenic Spirit,
RPI Panhellenic President 2017
RPI Panhellenic Council
