2021 Fall Recruitment occurred September 9th- September 13th, with Bid Day welcoming 114 new members to the Sorority community, and 66 new members to the Fraternity community, while the National Pan-Hellenic Council hosted their “Meet the Greeks” event. The newest members of the Sorority community engaged in three rounds that consisted of a virtual open house, and two in-person rounds. Fraternity community members kicked off their experience with a Fraternity Expo, followed by three in-person rounds at the various chapter houses.
Drake University is home to 8 out of the 9 National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) organizations, which are commonly referred to as the “Divine Nine.” Some of the organizations have joint chapters with Iowa State University. The “Meet the Greeks” event gave individuals a chance to meet these chapters. The chapters in this council conduct Intake within their own scope, and don’t recruit as a Council.
