Every August Mizzou women seeking sorority membership go through Panhellenic recruitment. This year, 1,892 students explored Greek Town in their matching T-shirts, hoping to find a home among the 16 chapters represented there. It can be an exciting and sometimes overwhelming time for the potential new members, or PNMs, but they’re not without guides.

The Mizzou Panhellenic Association selects Panhellenic counselors (or Pi Chis) from across all chapters and trains them to help PNMs through the process. During recruitment, Pi Chis disaffiliate from their chapters and take on the Pi Chi letters, becoming a neutral source of help for the women in their groups. Read more on Mizzou News.
