“My daughter plans to attend ____.
Can you help her with sorority recruitment there?”

Did you daughter tell you she planned to participate in sorority recruitment? We can help!

Hiking in Heels assists ladies with the sorority recruitment process at over 40+ different schools.

While we acknowledge that rush is certainly more competitive at some schools than others, we work with a variety of ladies in various situations participating in formal and informal sorority recruitment at each of the schools listed further down, such as:

  • First-time freshmen rushees
  • Sophomore rushees (first time or 2nd-time rushees)
  • Legacies / non-legacies
  • Out-of-state rushees
  • Transfer students
  • Upperclassmen

If you don’t see your daughter’s school on the list below – don’t hesitate to reach out and ask. We spend a lot more time working with moms and daughters than updating this page, so it’s likely we coach ladies at that school as well. (If not, we can still help with the basics every rushee will need to complete and connect her with the right resources.)

My daughter plans to participate in sorority recruitment, but she hasn’t selected a school yet. Do I need to wait until she’s selected a college to sign up?

No – you do not need to have committed to a specific school before enrolling in our program. It’s just like signing up for an SAT prep course – you don’t have to know what colleges you’re applying to yet – you just have to have to know you plan to go, and that you plan to participate in recruitment at a school that has Greek life.

Since Hiking in Heels works with ladies from the moment they join the program and provides access to coaching until they receive their bid, we can begin other parts of the program while she’s waiting on her acceptance letters.  Once your daughter selects her school, we’ll dive into school-specific recruitment nuances and recommendations.

How do we apply for the program? How soon should we apply?

Consider working the first and only sorority rush coaching program in Texas (and the first of its kind in the nation).

A lot of the big decisions surrounding recruitment involve paperwork and are made by the chapters months before recruitment officially begins. That’s great news for you – especially since you’re already here.

We know exactly what the Director of Recruitment Records is looking for on your (or your daughter’s) resume, how the houses will rank your letters of recommendation on a scale (and how you can get a higher ranking), how best to prepare your rush packets, how the bid list ordering and cut process works, and what you should actually be discussing during each round.

Most moms and daughters prefer to begin working with a rush coach a year to several months in advance of formal recruitment. The sooner you get started – the more we can do for you.

Working with a rush coach maximizes a rushees odds and gives your daughter an advantage long before she steps foot on campus for recruitment so she (let’s be real – so both of you) can participate in recruitment confidently.

It’s just like the SAT – it’s better to go in prepared. Let’s get you (or you and your daughter) recruitment ready.
