35 Questions PNM Should Ask During Sorority Recruitment

I remember going through recruitment and thinking, "what kind of questions can I ask them?" It's no secret that going through recruitment is stressful and can drain the life out of you. Being in a sorority for four years, and having gone through recruitment 3 times from the inside, I complied a list of the most common question girls ask us. Sometimes the questions are very generic, and sometimes they are very personal. So take a screenshot of this page, or save it on your phone and refer back to it during the week, when you feel like you need questions to fall back on, just in case.
