MEMBERS OF THE PRIDE OF MISSISSIPPI 

We are aware that the Pride's schedule overlaps Panhellenic Sorority Recruitment. The College Panhellenic Council is making accommodations to ensure that members of the Pride are still able to participate in sorority recruitment. We will be taking advantage of breaks in the Pride's practice schedule to allow for women to participate in rounds one (Open House), three (Sisterhood), four (Preference), and Bid Day. Where recruitment events overlap meal times, CPC will provide meals and transportation to and from the event. Members of the Pride will have the opportunity to freshen up, but chapters fully expect all members will be in their practice uniforms/clothes for each round or recruitment. 

It is out goal that members have as comfortable of a recruitment experience as possible. The schedule is as follows for pride members is shown to the right. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions.
