Letters of Recommendation Information
A Recommendation/Reference (also called a REC or RIF) serves as your introduction to the sorority, so their members can get to know you in advance of primary recruitment in the fall. Letters of recommendation are not required for participation in the recruitment process. These official forms, which are unique to each individual sorority, are provided by the national organization for their alumnae members to fill out on behalf of potential new members.
Please note that each sorority has its own policy regarding recommendation forms and that UM Panhellenic Council does NOT have access to individual sorority Recommendation/Reference Forms. We encourage one (1) recommendation per chapter that uses Recommendation Letters.
The individual completing the recommendation for the PNM should mail it directly to the local sororities or complete the online submission process. PNMS should NOT send test scores or transcripts to local chapters. Sororities at the University of Mississippi have requested that photo collages, videos, and any food items not be sent to the sorority, including during Primary Recruitment.
If you cannot find a letter of recommendation for each of the 10 NPC sororities participating in primary recruitment at the University of Mississippi, please do not worry!
We strongly recommend that all recommendations be submitted to the chapters by July 31, 2022, to ensure they arrive and are reviewed prior to the start of Recruitment.
