Rho Gammas

Recruitment is an exciting and memorable experience, but it can be a hectic and emotional time as well. Recruitment counselors, referred to as Rho Gammas, are undergraduate women at WMU who have disaffiliated from their chapters – you will be assigned a Rho Gamma group, and will have meetings with her throughout the process.

 

Rho Gammas, who have participated in recruitment themselves, have been through an extensive semester-long training program in preparation for recruitment week. They have your best interest at heart and are available to help you during the week of recruitment by serving as an impartial listener and friend.
