Panhellenic Recruitment Contact Guidelines

Summer Contact

Please be aware that according to the National Panhellenic Conference and University of Nebraska-Lincoln Recruitment Rules, it is illegal for an active chapter member, alumna, or representative from a chapter to contact you prior to or during the recruitment process. Illegal contact includes lunches, letters, phone calls, or any communication through Facebook, TicTok, Snap Chat, Twitter, emails, instant messaging, and any other social media sites. These guidelines are not intended to annul friendships or social relationships that existed prior to primary recruitment. Normal social contact may continue prior to recruitment as long as there is no intent to influence a potential new member toward a specific chapter, promise a pledge, or divulge specific chapter recruitment information. Normal social contact is defined as co-workers, roommates, family members, neighbors, and close friends.


A recommendation is an introduction and brief description of a young woman interested in recruitment, written by an alumna or active member of a chapter. Recommendations serve primarily as introductions and are not required, but can be beneficial for a potential new member. It is the responsibility of the individual chapter to secure recommendations for potential members, not the potential new member. Having a recommendation does not guarantee that a potential member will receive an invitation or pledge from that sorority. Recommendations should be sent directly to the chapter, who the recommender is associated with. Any recommendations sent to the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life will be discarded.
