A Message from Our Recruitment Officers
We cannot wait to meet all the lovely young women who will be going through Recruitment in 2020! As so many members of the Panhellenic community can attest, going Greek can open many doors and lead to lifelong friendships.
This is our second year with the new structure of the Recruitment process. Under this system, freshmen admitted in the Fall of 2019 will not be able to go through formal Recruitment until the Spring of 2020. In addition, all women who choose to go through the Recruitment process are required to have completed 12 units of undergraduate coursework and have a minimum GPA of 2.5.
Recruitment is an amazing experience that allows potential new members to meet other like-minded women. Recruitment is an exciting week that forever changes the lives of those who choose to go through the process. Even if you are questioning whether Greek life is for you, Recruitment will allow you to make new friends and meet other women in the USC community.
At USC, we have 55 Chapters across 5 Greek councils, and each has so much to offer! Leadership experience can be gained by holding an office in whichever organization you choose to join. Each chapter also provides members with philanthropic activities, networking opportunities within the organization, ways to meet others in the Greek community, and more! Recruitment is a wonderful experience, and we hope that you consider taking part in it!
On behalf of the Epsilon Chapter of Alpha Chi Omega, we hope that you choose to take part in Formal Recruitment and look forward to meeting you in the Spring! For more information on Recruitment please refer to the Panhellenic website. Fight On!

Vice Presidents of Recruitment and Assistant Vice President of Recruitment for 2020
Advice for Spring Recruitment
We know that Recruitment can seem intimidating, but it really is not! Don’t be nervous! Recruitment is an exciting experience, and you should enjoy every minute of it. Any questions you have as well as information about Spring Recruitment can be found on the Panhellenic website.
In case you are still nervous, here are some helpful tips from those who have gone through the process at USC before:
Keep an Open Mind: Every chapter is incredible and has so much to offer members! A positive, unbiased outlook is the best way to approach recruitment. Everyone’s recruitment experience is different!
Trust the Process: Although it might seem confusing at times, you will end up where you are meant to be at the end of recruitment.
Take Time Meet Others: The friends you make in your recruitment group can become lifelong friends and can even become your future sisters!
Ask Questions: If you ever have questions about any part of the process, ask your Recruitment Counselors. Recruitment Counselors are there to help you through the process and have given up their letters to help you find yours.
Be Yourself: We are so excited to meet you and want to get to know who you really are! Let your personality shine!
Have Fun!: Recruitment is such an exciting and rewarding experience! Don’t be stressed or nervous! You will end up where you are meant to be at the end of the process.
