The entire Panhellenic Community congratulates you on your acceptance and decision to attend RPI. Your decision to attend this rigorous and respected school speaks to your commitment to academics and value placed on education. I speak for the entire Panhellenic Community when I say we are thrilled to see more motivated and compassionate women like yourself explore all the opportunities Greek Life can add to your college experience. College will be a time of countless new and exciting experiences, all of which will help you learn and grow both personally and professionally. While Rensselaer’s many organizations all have unique things to offer, Greek Life may be the most well-rounded and memorable. From forming lifetime friendships with your new sisters, to gaining valuable leadership experience in numerous chapter officer positions and so much more, the Greek experience offers irreplaceable value.
The Greek Community at Rensselaer has been thriving since its inception and can’t wait to welcome you as one of it’s newest members. Our community is home to 5 sororities which are all governed by the Panhellenic Council on which I serve as President. The Panhellenic Recruitment process will allow you the opportunity to meet as many Greek women as possible and learn about each organization, the Panhellenic Council, and the Greek Community. In learning about our community and sorority life as a whole, you become a member of the Panhellenic community rather than a single sorority. With this in mind, please make sure to enter Recruitment from an unbiased standpoint. This means not ruling out sororities prior to Recruitment, and learning first-hand about what each sorority has to offer. After all, each sorority is alike in their strive for sisterhood and Panhellenic spirit.
Between strong friendships, academic encouragement, leadership and philanthropy opportunities, and professional and personal growth, sorority life can make all the difference in your college experience. Sororities are about so much more than weekly meetings and occasional events - it’s a group of women who find each other through common goals, values, and ideals. Above all, it’s not about whichever house you may choose, but rather the amazing women who will guide and support you throughout your time at RPI. No matter the group, you will find the people who will be by your side through it all. Once again, I am so happy you’ve chosen to explore the Greek and Panhellenic Communities and wish you all the best in your upcoming years at Rensselaer!
In Panhellenic spirit,
RPI Panhellenic Council President 2018
