Sorority Recommendation Requests for Fall

Our CNSA Panhellenic would like to receive your interest in sorority recommendations for the fall school year by mid-summer. All recommendation requests need to be made by the potential new member and completed online with an introductory email and necessary attachments.

Please email this information to:

Your request needs to include:
*  A sorority resume which includes contact information, your high school, your intended college/university, your anticipated major, GPA, ACT/SAT scores, and Legacy information (if any). The resume needs to be an attachment in .pdf or in a Word document format.

* A high resolution .jpg photo in a separate attachment. Please do not send a zip file; attach your files separately.
We'd like to get to know you! In your resume or the body of your submittal email, please include a little more about yourself. What are your passions? Where do you think you've made the most leadership or participation difference? What have you learned that you can share in a sisterhood? Where you see yourself in the future? This information helps the alumnae recommendation writers learn more about you, as each sorority recommends asking some or all of these questions.
Also, please list the sororities where you'd like a recommendation. Please do this after you have asked friends, teachers, coaches, friends of your parent, and people you know in the community. A recommendation from someone who knows you well holds a lot of weight. We thank you in advance for you interest in becoming a valued addition to our sisterhood!


Recruitment Information Night Informs and Connects

Although we don't have an upcoming schedule at this time, our Panhellenic sponsored educational events are designed for graduating seniors and parents, to help gain a better understanding of the sorority recruitment process. We advocate the strong value of the sorority experience especially during this time of the COVID-19 physical separation. Plus, we promote the entire sorority community and not just one organization over another. By sharing our own stories, we want to encourage you to consider The Sorority Life as a positive, relevant, and rewarding lifetime opportunity.

The Sorority Life Recruitment Information Event was last held on June 8, 2020, via Zoom. 80 women registered and 55 were on the call. Several panelist leaders from colleges and universities across the nation spoke to the attendees with recruitment tips, sisterhood and service involvements. Most paneleists were recent graduates or
still attending school, bringing a fresh perspective. 


You can learn more on The Sorority Life website and with our helpful Sorority Recruitment Guide below. And, if going through recruitment now and need recommendations, please contact us at and put "Recommendations" in the subject line. We will be happy to help. To learn more:


The Sorority Life Community Recruitment Information Events in 2019

Two enlightening and exciting Recruitment Events were held in May 2019 – in Winnetka IL on May 29th, and in Libertyville IL (shown above) on May 30th. There was a strong turnout at both! Women traveled from Wisconsin and the south suburbs to participate. Attendees heard personal insights from a panel of collegiate sorority women as they discussed common questions such as:  Is sorority life right for me? What do I need to know about sorority life? And, what is recruitment all about?
