What is a recommendation?
A recommendation, or ‘rec’, is a personal reference of a potential new member provided by an alumna of a sorority.
The purpose of a recommendation is to give a sorority chapter the chance to know more about you before recruitment – a more personal introduction in addition to their copy of your sorority recruitment registration form.
Each chapter has different guidelines- if you have questions about specific chapters please reach out to them directly!! All of their info to contact is on the bottom of this page! If you want a specific date to give those writing your letters trying to have them in by the beginning of July is great, but the most important part of the process is your resume, PNM personality slide, and the recruitment process!
TCU's chapters are not allowed to accept baskets and goodies from PNMs, and we kindly ask PNM's and their families to refrain from sending such items to chapters. Packets and recommendations are allowed, and we encourage you to put your best foot forward to chapters through your personality slide- gifts are not needed!
1. If you have a friend/relative/teacher who is an alumna of a sorority, she can give you a recommendation. You may be surprised to find out how many sorority women you know!
2. Contact your hometown Alumnae Panhellenic Association. They can help find someone to write a recommendation for you.
3. If your hometown does not have an Alumnae Panhellenic Association, you may contact the Fort Worth Panhellenic Association (www.fortworthpanhellenic.com). Even if you are not from Fort Worth, they may be able to help you with recommendations.
4. Reach out to family friends who are currently active in Panhellenic sororities.
This differs for each sorority. TCU cannot provide any recommendation forms to fill out. Alumnae may obtain the forms and information from their inter/national websites, their sorority publications, or local alumnae chapters.

All official references have to go through the online system of the Kappa alum’s account with kappa.org found in the tab for PNM recommendations. Kappa nationals discourages letters of support - not a rule just a recommendation - but if an alumnus wants to send a letter of support they can email it to email@example.com.
Note: PI Beta Phi does not require recommendations for a PNM to receive a bid.
