NEW MEMBER EXPERIENCE

Becoming a member of our chapters is a unique and wonderful experience. For that reason, our new member period is purposefully mapped out to educate and introduce the latest women to our community. Every chapter has mandatory new member education, where women have the opportunity to learn about their chapter history, current traditions, and important resources for thriving at USC. These take place from bid day until initiation. Additionally, the Panhellenic Council hosts a community-wide New Member Education event, where women from all chapters participate in breakout sessions focused on healthy relationships, title ix and assault resources, and alcohol and drug education. Our Panhellenic sister sorority events are also opportunities to bond and connect women from different chapters over joint philanthropic activities.
