Greek Life, Recruitment, Thoughts

The Rise of the Sorority Recruitment Video

Although it’s only summer, that doesn’t mean you haven’t thought about recruitment. Recruitment chairs are spending their summer getting organized and sending out constant emails to the new members that haven’t experienced recruitment from the chapter side. New members are nervously going over their songs and chants list. And the other members are eagerly awaiting the excitement that comes with recruitment and getting new sisters.

Every year recruitment rolls around, sororities look for multiple ways to make sure their organization stands out from the rest. When I went through recruitment, every sorority had the same type of idea. From the color coordinated outfits to the poster boards that show what the sorority does around campus, it’s obvious that ideas are going to fall short eventually. Over the past couple years, the big thing to do is making a recruitment video to show during one of the rounds. It’s a great way to show the PNMs what your sorority is like and it’s also a fun way for your chapter to bond in the process of making the video.

I’ve searched all over for some of the best sorority recruitment videos I could find and I decided to share the YouTube links to them so your sorority can have an idea of what they should include. I picked these videos as the best based on how well I think they represent their sorority. They show the best qualities their sororities have including sisterhood, academics, fun, school pride, diversity, etc. I hope these amazing recruitment videos give your sorority an idea for one of your own videos this upcoming recruitment.
