RECRUITMENT AND COVID
This page is broken down into three parts: Recruitment, Sorority Life, and Housing. Scroll down for the appropriate sections. If you still have questions or concerns after reading this page, please contact our VP of Recruitment, Joanna Noffsinger, at
As of now, Primary Recruitment (formerly known as Formal Fall Recruitment) 2020 is still scheduled for September 11-18. We are monitoring the current situation and will make any adjustments based on University of Washington decisions related to the fall quarter, as well as current CDC and local public health guidance. Recruitment is not cancelled! In the event that in-person recruitment is not possible, we are working on an alternative plan and will keep the website, as well as our social media platforms updated. PNM registration will be open June 1 and remain open through August 15.
At this time, we are encouraging everyone to sign up for housing through UW’s Housing & Food Services (HFS). For incoming freshman and new transfer students to have the highest housing application priority, they should apply no later than 11:59 p.m. on May 12 (PDT).
In previous years, women wishing to go through Primary Recruitment were told not to sign up for housing, but with the uncertainty of what fall quarter will look like, we are encouraging signing housing agreements this year. If you are receiving conflicting information from friends or family who have participated in Primary Recruitment at UW in the past, please know that information does not hold true this year.
Once we have firm plans for Primary Recruitment and know for sure that the new members will move into the chapter houses in the fall, incoming freshmen and new transfer students will receive information from HFS regarding their housing application cancellation. Current UW students will be responsible for cancelling their own HFS application and are subject to cancellation charges.
