AUBURN UNIVERSITY – The National Panhellenic Conference recently recognized Auburn University and just 20 other campuses nationwide with the College Panhellenic Achievement Award. The distinction follows a record-breaking recruitment for Auburn including the largest number of registered participants, 1,401, in the history of Auburn Panhellenic.
At the end of Panhellenic recruitment, 100 percent of the potential new members who went through the final recruitment process step of bid-matching received an invitation to join one of Auburn’s 17 Panhellenic sororities. This resulted in a record-breaking 1,278 bids, with a total of 92.3 percent of the participants placed. Panhellenic was able to predict a large number of participants because the number generally fluctuates with the size of the incoming freshman class, which is one of the largest in Auburn’s history.
