frequently asked questions
Will recruitment still occur with Millsaps College social restrictions due to COVID-19?
YES! We are busy planning formal recruitment through a virtual platform and cannot wait to meet you! All you need this year is your computer and headphones!
When does recruitment start?
Millsaps College has a delayed recruitment. You will begin meeting sorority women the moment you walk on campus. Sorority women are Orientation Leaders, Welcome Weekend Volunteers, and Foundation Leaders. You will meet us in your classes, gathering spots on campus, or social events. Millsaps College Panhellenic Council will also host events to introduce you to the different sororities and mingle with their members. Formal Recruitment week typically begins the 2nd or 3rd week of the fall academic term. Check the Millsaps Greek Life website for current dates of formal recruitment.
Do I need letters of recommendation?
You do not have to have a recommendation letter, but you may submit one directly to our organization:
Chi Omega Chi Delta
Attn.: RIF Chair
PO BOX 151095
1701 N. State Street
Jackson, MS 39210
Is being in a sorority expensive?
Every sorority has a different cost associated with membership and we are very flexible with payment plans. Overall, we are more affordable than state schools but provide the same experience! In Chi Omega membership is a lifetime; the dues you pay during your collegiate membership afford you opportunities beyond graduation.
How do I sign up for recruitment?
Panhellenic Recruitment Registration is currently open and will close on the day prior to formal recruitment. To apply, visit the Millsaps Student Life web page or click the link: Fall 2020 Sorority Recruitment. When applying, make sure to include your resume and a picture!
How will being in a sorority help me academically?
Chi Omega's GPA is consistently higher than the average GPA of all non-Greek women. This semester we ranked highest among all Greek organizations on campus with a 3.75! You always have a study buddy in Chi O!
What if I end up in a different sorority than my friend?
Our Panhellenic community supports everyone regardless of the letters we wear! Recruitment is all about finding the place YOU feel at home.
How do I know which sorority is the best fit for me?
Through having conversations with sorority women during informal or formal recruitment, you will establish connections. We suggest you get to know as many women as you can, ask them questions, listen to their presentations, but most importantly be yourself. When you know, you know!
