Recommendations are letters written by sorority alumnae supporting a PNM going through Panhellenic recruitment. Recommendations are not required to go through recruitment. If a chapter requires a recommendation for PNMs, it is ultimately the chapter's responsibility to secure a recommendation.

PNMs who would like to secure their own recommendations may do so, but all recommendations must be sent directly to the chapter house. Any and all recommendations sent to SMU Panhellenic Council will be discarded and not forwarded. The SMU Panhellenic Office cannot help you secure recommendations or check to see if a chapter has received a recommendation for you.

Please do not call the SMU Panhellenic/Student Activities Office with questions regarding recommendations.
