2019 RECRUITMENT COUNSELOR APPLICATION 

Dear Recruitment Counselor Applicant, 

 

Thank you for your interest in the UCI Panhellenic Recruitment Counselor program! Recruitment Counselors serve a vital role prior to and during formal recruitment and are an integral part of a successful program. They provide support, friendship, and personal guidance to potential new members going through the formal recruitment process, while promoting the growth and improvement of the entire Greek community.

 

Recruitment Counselors are selected for their enthusiasm and ability to relate well with others, their consistent positive attitude, their knowledge of the Greek community, and their potential to help women have a positive recruitment experience. They must be dependable, responsible, impartial, and discreet in order to be effective. The Director of Greek Life and members of the Panhellenic Recruitment Team will extensively train the Recruitment Counselors so that they will be fully equipped to answer questions about Greek life. Recruitment Counselors must not have any contact with their chapters during Fall Recruitment, and will be considered unaffiliated during this time. While Recruitment Counselors will be involved in many fun activities, their primary purpose is to help potential new members to understand the recruitment process and to have a great and positive experience!

 

All applicants must be active and initiated members of a Panhellenic sorority at UCI and must have participated in formal recruitment as a chapter member (Exceptions can be made regarding participation in formal recruitment.
