Recruitment Dates 2020: 

*Official Recruitment dates will be announced here shortly*

Greetings Golden Bears! We are so excited for you to become a member of our community. 


 The Panhellenic community prioritizes the pursuit of an inclusive and diverse environment. We want to share this statement on the topic so the greater community is able to hold us accountable and know that we will never stop working toward making this space a comfortable and loving one for all who wish to be a part of it. Please read it here. 


The recruitment process at the University of California Berkeley is values-based, one in which inclusivity, diversity, leadership, friendship, service, and other values that members of the Panhellenic community strive to embody are exemplified in all related activities.

Through a mutual-selection process, potential new members (PNMs) have the opportunity to meet active chapter womxn and visit all thirteen chapter houses. As the week progresses, both PNMs and chapters will narrow their choices. Below is the number of chapters you will be visiting each day:

  • Unity Day: Each PNM visits all thirteen chapters

  • Sisterhood Day: Up to 9 chapters 

  • Philanthropy Day: Up to 6 chapters

  • Preference Night: Up to 2 chapters 

    • These are the maximum chapters that you will be invited back to each day which is not guaranteed within Fall Primary Recruitment 

    • We highly recommend maximizing your options and not single intentional preffing, in order to increase your probability of receiving a bid 


At the end of the week, bids to chapters are extended. If you choose to withdraw from the recruitment process at any point after Preference, you will be unable to join a chapter until the following Fall Semester. 

As we begin to approach the 2020 Fall Primary Recruitment Cycle, UC Berkeley Panhellenic will be taking the necessary measures to ensure the health and safety of our community. We are continuing to plan recruitment for the first week of the Fall 2020 semester. Panhellenic will be abiding by NPC, university, as well as state and federal regulations. Throughout the summer, Panhellenic will be corresponding with potential new members if there are changes to our recruitment cycle. Please check back on this page for updates if courses will be remote for the Fall. We appreciate your patience during these times. As of now, the updates made to the structure of Fall Primary Recruitment are that it is completely virtual. We are also excited to announce that there will be no registration fee for Fall Primary Recruitment.


I look forward to meeting you in the Fall. Until then, if you have any questions about Fall Primary Recruitment reach out to me at phc.memberships@calgreeks.com
