A Letter from the Vice President of Recruitment Logistics

Hotty Toddy and welcome to the University of Mississippi! I have the absolute pleasure to serve as Vice President of Recruitment Logistics for the College Panhellenic Council. On behalf of our council, I want to extend a heartfelt welcome to each and every one of you to the Flagship. I want to express how honored we are to welcome you to our community in your journey of higher education.

The beginning of college is a transformative moment filled with excitement, anticipation, and perhaps a touch of nervousness. Rest assured, you are not alone. Our vibrant Greek community is here to offer you support, guidance, and friendship every step of the way. The college experience is about more than just academics; it’s about forging lifelong connections, discovering your passions, and embracing new opportunities for personal growth. As you prepare to navigate your first year on campus, I encourage you to explore all that our Greek community has to offer.

Should you choose to participate in our Primary Recruitment process, I urge you to prioritize the values that you hold closest to your heart. Our Panhellenic community is the proud home of eleven National Panhellenic Conference organizations, each with their own ideals and values. If you are looking for a community of like-minded women who will support you inside and out of these four years at the Flagship, our Panhellenic community is ready to provide you with these opportunities. I encourage you to take advantage of every opportunity that is available to you!

I am so excited you are interested in joining our Panhellenic community, and we cannot wait to see you this fall!

-Maris Thompson, 2024 Vice President of Recruitment Logistics
