A Recruitment Counselor often referred to as a Rho Gamma is dedicated to assisting the Panhellenic Council with facilitating the primary recruitment process. Each Rho Gamma is carefully selected and trained prior to the recruitment process. Each Rho Gamma is a current member of the sorority community at Texas Tech and will be available to you daily during Recruitment.
WHAT ARE THEY THERE FOR?
For Period I, you will be placed with a group of other Potential New Members (PNMs) and assigned Rho Gammas. Rho Gammas will be able to personally answer questions about Recruitment and assist with any problems that may arise.
A Rho Gamma’s primary purpose is to help you experience Recruitment in the most positive way possible and to help answer any questions you may have. It is important that you attend all meetings with Rho Gammas, as they will have important information for you. Lastly, the Rho Gammas will provide a shoulder to lean on when decisions get tough and will always lend a sympathetic ear, as they were once PNMs themselves.
WILL THEY BE IN CONTACT WITH THEIR SORORITY?
No, the Rho Gammas will have no contact with their own sorority during Recruitment, and can be relied on to keep any problems or questions confidential. These women are trained on hard conversations, logistical solutions to any problems that may arise during the week of recruitment, and the mutual selection process. They are an impartial opinion and are there for your support.
