Recommendations are VERY important at LSU
Recommendations speak to your character.

You should have at LEAST one recommendation for each sorority. Two are generally recommended.

Identify women who are alumnae of each sorority at LSU.

Provide them with a resume and 2 different photos of yourself.

They will follow their national policies on recommendations and will send the information to their respective sorority house.

Thank you!
What if I don't know an alumnae member of a particular sorority?
Contact the organization's national headquarters. Their websites are listed in the FAQ packet!
What if I only have recommendations for 6 of the 11 sororities?
Once you've exhausted all resources...

Send 5 packets to Panhellenic at
RM 472 LSU Student Union
. Be sure to specify which sororities you need the recommendations for!

We will share your information with those sororities, and they will work to secure you a recommendation.
This is not guaranteed!
