Recruitment Counselors


A recruitment counselor, often referred to as a Gamma Rho Chi, is an upperclassman, sorority woman who has temporarily disassociated from their sorority to provide unbiased support for PNMs. Recruitment counselors will provide support and guidance for PNMs as they integrate into their chapter and the campus as a whole.
