Panhel Extends Executive Council Terms Through 2018 Spring Bid Day

Penn State Panhellenic announced Wednesday that members of its executive council will have the option to extend their terms through 2018 spring bid day in response to the university’s decision to defer recruitment until the spring semester for the 2017-18 school year.

“With formal recruitment 2018 being the first ever deferred recruitment, we want to ensure that it will run smoothly,” the statement from Panhel president Amanda Saper reads. “We realize that for some, this was more time, commitment, and energy than what was asked of us when we first assumed our positions in January.”

The decision to defer fall bid day for freshman came out as part of the Greek sanctions released in March.

To rush in the spring, students must have at least 12 credits under their belt. Penn State Vice President of Student Affairs Damon Sims said there’s a a possibility of banning freshman from rush altogether.
