As required by the National Panhellenic Conference, there is not a GPA requirement to participate in primary recruitment at Clemson University.
- Typical sorority average to extend a membership invitation is a 3.00 cumulative GPA. Women who have below a 3.00 GPA are advised they are at a greater risk to be released from the primary recruitment process due to their academics.
- For 2016 primary recruitment, freshmen who joined a sorority had an high school cumulative GPA average of 3.74 and upperclassmen had an average cumulative GPA of 3.36.
- Freshmen or students with less than 12 college credit hours will use their final, cumulative, high school grade point average as reported by their high school. Students with more than 12 college credit hours will use their college, cumulative, grade point average as reported by their academic institution.
To help students understand how their GPA may affect their primary recruitment experience, the Panhellenic Council created Grade Zones to show how academics may factor in primary recruitment.
Green Zone = Your options are not likely limited based on your GPA. (3.0 + )
Yellow Zone = Your options are more likely to be limited by your GPA. (2.8 – 2.99)
Red Zone = Your options are very likely to be limited based on GPA. (2.79 and below)
Circle of Sisterhood BBQ
This year, the Panhellenic Council will be hosting a Circle of Sisterhood BBQ on Wednesday, August 23, 2017 at Esso from 4:30-8:30pm. There will be a $10 entry fee for this event. All entry fee money is given to the Panhellenic wide philanthropy, Circle of Sisterhood. There will be an option on the online payment form to include this $10 into your final registration total.
For example: Registration ($200) + Circle of Sisterhood BBQ ($10) = $210
This event is not mandatory, but is a great opportunity to learn more about the Circle of Sisterhood, spend time with Panhellenic Exec and the Pi Chi, and to get to know the other women going through the recruitment process.
Panhellenic will be providing each PNM a round 1 t-shirt and a round 2 t-shirt to wear during recruitment. Since both round 1 and round 2 will span over two days, you have the option to purchase a second t-shirt for both round 1 and round 2. Any additional t-shirts ordered will be given to you during recruitment orientation with your other t-shirts and goodies. Please use the following links to order additional t-shirts.
The ability to order additional t-shirts is now closed.
As a friendly reminder, Clemson can be very hot and humid this time of year. Getting a size up in your t-shirt may be helpful in keeping you as comfortable as possible!
PLEASE NOTE: After 5pm on Thursday, August 3rd, we are not able to guarantee you the t-shirt size you select when completing your registration as we will have already placed the t-shirt order. We have ordered extra shirts to provide to those who register after 5pm on August 3rd.
