PNM Welcome Round Video


Our chapters are excited to get to know you better through this video, so please be your true, authentic self! The chapters want to see the real you and want to get to know your personality. We recommend that you dress in something that makes you feel comfortable, maybe something similar to what you might wear to a dinner with friends, or a fun day out on the town. Videos are limited to one minute, maximum. Only submit one video. Once the video is submitted it is final. If your video does not adhere to the one-minute timeframe and additional guidelines outlined below, it will not be accepted by Miami Panhellenic and will not be shared with chapters.


All videos submitted by PNMs will be reviewed by Miami Panhellenic Association executive council members. 

PNMs who decide to record the optional video will send their video to

Once reviewed and approved by the executive council, PNM videos will be released to chapters via a link. 



This year, the Potential New Members have the opportunity to upload an optional video to introduce themselves to the chapters. In the video, please state your full name, hometown and hometown state. Then, respond to 2-4 of the prompts from the list below.


  1. What is the best piece of advice you have ever received? 

  2. What do you consider to be your greatest accomplishment thus far?

  3. What made you choose Miami University?

  4. How can you incorporate your personal values into the sorority experience?

  5. Tell us about a person, quote, or experience that inspires you. 

  6. If you could live in any movie, TV show, or book, what would it be and why?

  7. Tell us something about yourself that someone might be surprised to learn. 

  8. What is something you have always wanted to learn more about? 

  9. Tell us anything else you think we should know about you. 


Video Guidelines

  • Videos should be no longer than 60 seconds (one minute). 

  • No props should be used. 

  • Backgrounds should be neutral—this does not mean you have to stand in front of a blank wall, but it should not be distracting (see background instructions below).

  • Videos should only feature the PNM.

  • PNMs should not hire a third party to produce, film, and/or edit the video.

  • Please record the video horizontally. 

  • There should be no extra sound (example: music)

  • All videos are due to by 5pm on January 12th. 


Background Instructions

Pay careful attention to your background. You want to avoid several potential mistakes with your set. 

  • Avoid a cluttered or messy background (clothes on the floor, junk piled up, etc.).

  • Avoid a distracting background (posters with a lot of words, televisions turned on, etc.). 

  • Avoid a background that is too bright (see the lighting section). 

  • The ideal background is simple. It does not have to be a blank wall, but it should be something that will not take attention away from what you are saying.
