A recommendation letter is a written reference by an alumna to her sorority chapter. The letter is an introduction about a potential new member's academics, activities, and character. The responsibility of finding alumna to write letters of recommendation rests with the potential new member. It is best if letters of recommendation are received by chapters no later than August 15, however if you miss the deadline, it is still in your best interest to send in the letter. Please send the letter to the Office of Greek Life, Monmouth College, 700 E. Broadway, Monmouth, IL 61462.
1. Decide who will write a letter of recommendation for you. If you know a sorority alumna, ask if she would be willing to write a letter to her sorority on your behalf.
2. Provide the alumna who will be writing your letter of recommendation with a picture and a copy of your resume. An already addressed and stamped envelope is also good to provide the alumna.
3. Send a thank you note to the alumna after she has taken the time to write you a recommendation.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the office at 309-457-2115.
