Recruitment FAQs:


What should I wear?




Do I need a letter of recommendation?






No one in my family has been in Greek life. Does this matter?

What is the best advice you received about recruitment?

Dress to your style - wear what you feel comfortable and confident in.  Above all, be yourself!  Here are some general suggestions for level of formality by day - 

Sisterhood Day: dress as if you were going to grab lunch with some friends at a sit-down restaurant.

Philanthropy Day: dress as if you were headed to brunch with your extended family; this day is slightly more formal than Sisterhood Day.

Preference Night: dress as if you were going to a homecoming dance; this is the most formal day of recruitment.

Bid Day: wear comfortable shoes and whichever bottoms you choose; you will receive a t-shirt when you arrive at the house! Many people wear jeans or jean shorts, but anything goes!

Nope!  Recommendation letters are not required at all, and not having a letter will have zero impact on your recruitment experience at DG.  But, if you do know a family member or friend who is currently a member of any DG chapter or is an alumna of Delta Gamma, there is absolutely no downside to having them write a recommendation letter.

Nope!  We only care about meeting and getting to know YOU.  Be yourself and let your individuality shine!

Be yourself! Don't get caught up in what you may perceive any chapter's expectations to be during recruitment. We want to know what makes you, YOU.  As well, ask any questions you have, no matter how silly you think they are!

Future and current SCU students:


The Santa Clara community is something extremely special that sets us apart from other universities. Greek life is a great way to get involved and meet people within the university, and is often the highlight of many people's college experience. I am so excited for you all; enjoy all that Santa Clara has to offer and have the best four years of your life! I wish you the best with formal recruitment and any other actives you choose to take on during your career at SCU.


I can't wait to see you in the fall!
