TROY Service Centers meet the needs of working adults, including military, government agency civilians, teachers and future business leaders who want the opportunities that come with earning a degree. Because adult learners often have different educational needs than traditional students, courses are provided at times and in formats designed around people who work and have other commitments for their time.

Service and giving to others is the theme for this day. You will be visiting each sorority for 35 minutes, and you will want to ask the members about their sorority. You will be greeted by the sorority members with a song as you enter their chapter house. A sorority member will greet you at the door and introduce you to many of the members. Be prepared to tell them about yourself. The sororities will guide you through an arts and crafts project that they will use for their philanthropy. Please note that you will be going to five events (parties) on either Monday or Tuesday out of the eighteen events listed below. You will receive a specific philanthropy schedule at orientation on Sunday. On this day, you will be provided a Philanthropy t-shirt to wear with shorts, capris, or skirts.
Sisterhood and Values Day is designed to help you learn more about the bonds of sisterhood of each sorority and hear about their values. You should be thinking about which sorority would be the most comfortable “home away from home” for you. Take a good look at how the women of the sorority interact with one another. Is the bond of sisterhood strong? A nice dress or skirt and blouse is appropriate. This is your special time to communicate one-on-one with the sorority women. The conversation is longer and more meaningful. You should begin to look for certain qualities in the sororities and their members. You will meet your recruitment counselor at 12:30 pm at a designated place on sorority hill, and she will give you a schedule for the day. On this day you will be scheduled to attend various parties with a limit to four different sororities. Please note that these parties are on Wednesday and Thursday so you may be scheduled for parties on either day or both days, but the most parties you will attend are four. Dress is more formal than is required for Philanthropy Day.
Preference events are the most serious of all those held during membership recruitment week. Sorority members begin to introduce you to their bonds of sisterhood. By Preference Day, you will be thinking seriously about which sorority is best for you and you may take part in a special ceremony. Your hostess may talk privately with you about your feelings toward the sorority and answer any final questions you may have, helping you in your decision making process. During this time, you should listen carefully to what the women tell you about their ideals of sisterhood. Listen to what they say, for these women are revealing to you the strong characteristics of their sorority. Ask the women what their sorority means to them. This is a very serious event, where the atmosphere is serene. You will meet with your recruitment counselor at 11:30 p.m. at a designated place on sorority hill, and she will give you a schedule for the day. You will be scheduled for parties that day and the most sororities that you can attend is two. Sunday dresses are worn on this day.
The last event of membership recruitment is Bid Day. You may receive an invitation to join or your Recruitment Counselor may tell you that you did not receive a bid. If your bid did not match, you are eligible for continuous open bidding. All potential members will gather in the Elm Street Gym at 8:45 a.m. to receive their bid and to walk to sorority hill no later than 9:30 a.m. Friends and Family should be on Sorority Hill by 9:15 a.m. to view Bid Day. Friends and family are not allowed in the Elm Street Gym during the distribution of bids. Each sorority will host an event for their new members that day. You may be obligated to pay pledge fees this night. You will also meet with your new member educator that day. She will go over a schedule with you that you will follow for the next couple of days. If you are a new freshman, be sure to plan to attend Odyssey convocation with your new member class on Sunday afternoon, Aug. 14, 2016. If your parents will be attending, they are welcome to go with your new member class. We encourage you to wear a Troy t-shirt and casual shorts.
