What Is Recruitment?

Formal membership recruitment (FMR) is a time when women have the chance to explore the Rose-Hulman Greek system and consider joining one of the three chapters on campus. About 46% of the women on Rose's campus belong to one of these three groups. All three chapters offer a great opportunity for women to excel academically, improve their leadership skills, participate in philanthropy, and be a part of a wonderful sisterhood that will last them through college and beyond.

Membership Recruitment Counselors

Membership recruitment counselors (MRCs) are a group of eight women who have chosen to disaffiliate from their chapters for the duration of FMR. Comprised of the women from Panhellenic's executive council, as well as five women from the three chapters on campus, they will be a friend and mentor to you throughout FMR. They were selected because they're friendly, helpful, and a great resource about Greek life. Don't hesitate to ask them any questions you may have concerning Greek or campus life!

Year: Senior

Organizations outside of Panhellenic she is involved in:
Softball, BMES, SWE, Resident Assistant in Sharpenberg

Her advice to PNMs:
Everyone in each chapter is individually unique! You should do what's best for YOU and the sisterhood that feels right will mesh together naturally! At least give recruitment a shot because you're bound to meet people that will become very good friends, even if you decide Greek Life isn't for you.

Something she loves doing with her sisters:
I love going out to the movies, being crafty, eating ice cream, and I absolutely love sitting around bonfires and singing along with my sisters' awesome guitar skills - even though I'm pretty bad at singing!.

Her Advice for PNMs:
You should do it. You will meet so many great women on campus that can form friendships to last a lifetime, even if you don't end up joining.

WMHD Radio, Resident Assistant in Mees

Hobbies:
It's hard to find time but one of my favorite hobbies is reading. I love hiking, running, and late-night life talks. I also love binge-watching Netflix on lazy days but most of the time I have too much energy and I'm up for almost any adventure.  

Her advice for PNMs:
Don't worry about anything except having fun! Take this time to meet a ton of wonderful girls at this school and enjoy every minute of it. This is especially a great time to get to know the girls in your class if you are a freshman, so take advantage of it! There are so many boys here, it's great to meet others to have girl time with.

Julia Douglas

Major: Biomedical Engineering

Year: Senior

Organizations outside of Panhellenic she is involved in:
BMES, SWE

Her Advice for PNMs:
Follow your heart/gut. Just because one if your best friends wants to join a specific sorority, or doesn't want to go Greek at all, doesn't mean you have to do that as well. You don't have to both be Greek, or both be in the same sorority, to be friends.

Favorite Sisterhood Activity:
One of my favorite things to do is have movie nights. We all meet at someone's apartment/house, eat popcorn, and hang out.
