What is a Letter of Recommendation (rec), and am I required to get recommendations?
A Letter of Recommendation is one that is written on your behalf that speaks of your character, accomplishments, grades, and activities from a woman who has already been in that particular sorority. Therefore, it is beneficial to have someone you know write these for you.
Letters of Recommendation are not required to go through Recruitment at UL Lafayette. It is the responsibility of each individual sorority to secure recommendations. Each national sorority has its own guidelines and recommendation forms that its alumna members must use.The UL Lafayette Panhellenic Council does not provide these forms. If an alumna is not familiar with her own sorority’s regulations, she should contact her national/international sorority or visit their appropriate website for additional information. UL Lafayette Panhellenic does not set a deadline for submission of letters of recommendation. They likely will be required by the first week of August in order for the sororities to properly consider them before recruitment starts.
All Recommendation forms or letters should either be sent directly from the alumna to the address noted below for each chapter, OR they should submit their recommendation online.
