Will Recruitment still be happening in the Fall given the current situation with COVID-19?

It is the goal of the Panhellenic Council to proceed with Fall Recruitment 2020 as scheduled. Following the National Panhellenic Conference recommendations, the Panhellenic Council has developed four contingency plans for Recruitment 2020 which utilize virtual and physically distant practices to ensure the safety of both our chapter members and Potential New Members. Due to ongoing concerns regarding COVID-19, the Panhellenic Council has decided to move to Contingency Plan Option 2 for Fall Recruitment 2020. For an overview of our contingency plans, please click here.

When will the dates for Fall Recruitment be finalized?

The updated dates for Fall Recruitment 2020 can be found on the Recruitment Information tab of our website. 2020 Fall Recruitment will take place on August 19-29. As the status of COVID-19 continues to evolve, the Panhellenic Council continues to monitor the virus and the state of Florida and will post any necessary modifications to the Recruitment schedule on our website and social media.

Will the early move-in date for PNMs remain the same as originally scheduled?

Early move-in for Potential New Members will take place on August 18-20. All registered PNMs who are living in On-Campus housing for the Fall 2020 semester will be able to move-in on this date. Once a PNM has registered for Recruitment, her information will be sent to the UF Housing Department and her move-in date will be updated automatically. Please be patient in allowing the Housing Department to update move-in dates.

How do I submit my 90-second PNM Introduction Video to the Panhellenic Council?

To submit your introduction video, please head to the Recruitment Information tab and scroll down to the PNM Video Submission Information section to view the instructions for the videos as well as access the link to submit your video.

What should I do if I want to participate in Recruitment but am uncomfortable participating in any in-person rounds if Recruitment proceeds with Option 2?

In the event that Recruitment proceeds in the format of Option 2, all registered PNMs will have the opportunity to opt-out of an in-person Preference Round and will be able to participate in this round virtually if they would like. More information about this option will be provided to all registered PNMs in the coming weeks.

Will chapters hold on to recommendation letters they have received if Recruitment is postponed?

Yes, our chapters are prepared to keep submitted recommendation letters if Recruitment is postponed to a later time.

What happens to my registration fee if I choose to withdraw my registration application or withdraw from the Recruitment process?

All stated on the Recruitment registration form, the Recruitment registration fee is non-refundable. The Recruitment registration fee is also not transferable to the Spring semester, as our Spring Recruitment process is an informal process.

What happens to registration if Recruitment is postponed?

In the event that Fall Recruitment must be postponed, all registered PNMs will receive communication from the Panhellenic Council regarding their registration fee.
