UA Panhellenic Recruitment Information
During UA Panhellenic recruitment, Sigma Kappa will only be participating in Round 1, to share additional details about our process and what it means to join a new chapter. After Round 1, we will withdraw and allow the other sororities to finish their own recruitment process. Going through Alabama sorority recruitment is not required to be eligible for our process. Letters of Recommendation are not required to be eligible for the Sigma Kappa recruitment process. If you are interested in submitting a letter of recommendation, please have an alumna submit the electronic letter on your behalf here.
Sigma Kappa’s dues will be similar to all other sororities on campus. New members can anticipate spending $4,000-$4,500 for the fall 2018 semester. This will include a full-time meal plan, immediate access to the chapter house, and a full new member season calendar. Exact financial details will be provided during Personal Visits.
After UA Bid Day, Sigma Kappa leadership consultants will begin tabling on campus, meeting with potential new members and hosting Information Nights. Throughout September, we will be holding Personal Visits for all women interested in potentially joining. A Personal Visit is a one-on-one meeting with a member of our team and is required to be eligible for membership. We will hold several recruitment events in September (schedule is listed above) and extend bids on Sunday, September 23 to our founding members!
New Member Season
Our new chapter will get involved right away at UA – from social events, to sisterhood events to philanthropy events. We have already secured a house on Sorority Row (923 Magnolia) and our new members will have a full-meal plan and be able to hang out in the house as much as they would like to. Members will begin living in the house in fall 2019 and we will be building a brand new house within the first few years of being at UA. Joining a new chapter is an exciting and unique opportunity and we are thrilled to bring this experience to the University of Alabama women!
