Women at UNC looking to join Greek life will soon have a new sorority to choose from during recruitment.
The Panhellenic Council recently approved the addition of a chapter that is slated to open in fall 2015 with the intention of giving more women the opportunity to participate in the Greek system.
“We saw a lot of women that weren’t placed but really wanted to join a chapter,” said Brittney Bahlman, a coordinator in the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life and Community Involvement.
Caitlin Durr, former vice president of recruitment for the Panhellenic Council, said during the last five years, fall recruitment had increased every year, and between 2012 and 2013, the council saw an increase of about 50 potential new members.
“There has been more interest for the community as a whole,” she said.
