Happy Monday, Forema Babes! This week is our intern, Jasmine’s last week with us. We are super sad to see her go, but couldn’t let her leave without sharing one last blog post! This one’s for all you babes heading into recruitment!
“When I am not interning at Forema, I spend the majority of my time getting ready for formal recruitment as a Rho Gamma. A Rho Gamma is a recruitment counselor that helps any potential new member (PNM) that is going through recruitment. Our goal as a Rho Gamma is to guide them through the entire recruitment process by making them feel comfortable & welcomed as they find the perfect organization for them!
The best way to feel comfortable & confident during the recruitment process is finding those perfect outfits! I’ve rounded up some great finds at Forema Boutique that will take the guess work out of what to wear!
The first day of recruitment is Sisterhood Round! Here you will meet and get to know a little bit about all seven organizations. This day is themed around FGCU (wings up, eagles!). To show off your school spirit, pair an FGCU shirt with your favorite skirt or dress shorts and a pair of sandals! Finish it off with a simple necklace and stud earrings!

The second day is Philanthropy Round. This is where you learn about the organization’s philanthropy that you are called back to. This day is tailored to dressing more business casual. Wear your favorite brunch dress with a pair of heels or flats and you are all set for day two.

Day three is Preference Round which means it’s the last day till bid day. These rounds are a bit longer and more serious because the organization wants to know the real you. Since these rounds are more formal, think about wearing outfits that could be worn to a wedding. A little white dress or a maxi dress with a pair of wedges or heels is the perfect outfit to end the last day of recruitment.

Having your outfits for each day will definitely make you feel confident and prepared, letting your best self shine through!”
