With only a few weeks left until Fall 2015 sorority recruitment begins, I started thinking about all the reasons I am glad I went through the recruitment process at NYU just one year ago.

This weekend seeing my extended family I realized exactly how quickly this past year has gone. “You just ended your freshman year,” my aunts and uncles would ask, and I would have to respond that no, surprisingly I just finished my sophomore year.

NYU Fall Recruitment

Zeta Fall Recruitment

What is it like to undergo the Fall Recruitment process at NYU? 

NYU has a relatively small Greek Life compared to many large schools, with around 3000 participants equating to about 13% of NYU’s student population. The recruitment process of rushing one of the eight sororities or the multiple multi-cultural chapters varies. The main Fall Recruitment process for seven of the eight sororities was held over two weekends.
