A Rho Gamma (Recruitment Guide) is a Panhellenic representative who disaffiliates from her own chapter so that she can remain an unbiased and neutral guide throughout the formal recruitment process. She is an appointed, primary resource to assist and counsel potential new members through recruitment.  She is chosen for her ability to relate to people, her positive attitude, her communication skills and her leadership experience.

 As a member of the Panhellenic community a Rho Gamma can answer any questions you may have about the Recruitment Process, TWU Greek Life and Panhellenic as a whole. She has been through recruitment as a potential new member and a sister, so she understands exactly what a PNM maybe experiencing. She will lead you to your parties, give you more information about each organization and be there to confide in as you make your choices throughout the week.

2014 Rho Gammas

Kelsey Pyburn- VP of Recruitment

My name is Kelsey Pyburn and I am the 2014 Vice President of Recruitment. I was born and raised in Arlington, Texas and I have lived in Denton for the past two years. I am a senior majoring in Child Development and I hope to attend graduate school for Occupational Therapy. I joined Greek life in the fall of 2012. I had always been interested in Greek life and when I moved to Denton I wanted to make new friends. Joining a sorority was definitely one of the best decisions of my life. I will always be thankful for the friends I have made and the opportunities I have been given.  

 Gabriella Velder

I am Gabriella Velder, a senior Kinesiology major at TWU. I am originally from Arlington, Tx, and enjoy spending time with close friends and family.  I love to read, watch movies, create craft from Pinterest, and travel around the world. I one day hope to be a Physical therapist or maybe even work in the fashion industry. My main reason for joining the Greek community was to find a place to call my home away from home, to find a group of well-rounded ladies to grow and mature along side while attending college, and most importantly, learn and experience the indescribable and loving bonds that form from joining such an organization. To all the Future PNMS who are or planning on going through recruitment, I would like to bestow a kind word to help you in your journey in finding the “perfect fit” here in the TWU Greek community. Going into this process with open eyes and a open heart, listen to all that is said, ask questions, and most importantly, think about what is best for you and you will always be happy!

Jinhee Kim

Hello ladies! My name is Jinhee Kim and I am a junior majoring in dental hygiene. Currently, I’m a member of NSCS and a senator for the College of Health Sciences. Coming from the small town of Granbury, TX and not knowing anyone coming into TWU my freshman year, I felt that something was missing in my life. I was very skeptical and hesitant about joining a sorority because of the stereotypes but the more I looked into it and the more I talked to other girls in sororities, I found out that Greek life wasn’t all that was thought out to be. Therefore, I decided to go through Fall 2013 recruitment during my sophomore year.  I believe it was the best decision I have ever made for myself. If it weren’t for my sorority, I wouldn’t be who I am today. I have not only gained a group of best friends that I  could go to for anything, but also, I have become more confident in myself and strive to become a better person every day.  I am so excited to meet all of you and help you find your true home!

 Rachel Cannon

My name is Rachel Cannon and I am going into my fourth year at TWU as well as being a part of Greek Life! I am planning on graduating May 2015 as a Child Development major before going into my Master’s for Occupational Therapy. I am looking forward to an exciting new year! When going through recruitment my Freshman year 2011, I originally went in to support one of my sweet shy friend’s who had talked me into it. I am so glad I listened to her, because originally, I was not interested in joining a sorority so early in my college career. My argument was, “I want to make sure they are not stereotypical” and “I don’t think I am girly enough.” I am pleased to say, the sororities that I have met here, are NOT stereotypical, every girl is uniquely and beautifully different from the next. If you are like I was and still have a lot of questions, feel free to ask any of us! Don’t be shy, we all are really excited to meet you beautiful girl!  

Shelbi Lam

Hello! My name is Shelbi Lam and I am a Senior, majoring in Human Recourse Management. I transferred to TWU in Fall 2011. Adjusting to the new university atmosphere was more difficult than I thought it would be. I am from a small town where I knew everyone and they knew me, so being far away from home became a challenge. I knew I had to get involved before I went crazy! I had always been skeptical about Greek life due to the common misconceptions we sometimes hear. So I did my research and found only good news. I made my decision to rush that September and have been delighted ever since. Greek Life offers so much and can do only benefit you. You learn how to better connect with everyone you come across and how to view them as an individual and not as society may perceive them. My sisters have aided in my growth as a person and as a student. The bonds I have made with my sisters and everything I have learned will stay with me as I move forward. It truly became my Home away from home. I am so excited to be a part of Formal Recruitment 2014 and help you find your home away from home, just as I did.
