PNM Welcome Round Video

*optional*

Please read these instructions all the way through before you submit a 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. There is no dress code. This is completely optional, but highly encouraged as it gives chapters a chance to get to know you beyond your recruitment application!  

Videos are limited to one minute 15 seconds, maximum. Only may submit one video. Once the video is submitted it is final. If your video does not adhere to the timeframe and additional guidelines outlined below, it will not be accepted by Miami Panhellenic and will not be shared with chapters. If there is an issue with your submission or you are in need of accommodations please contact Panhellenic at panhellenic@miamioh.edu.

     Background Instructions

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

  • 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, ceiling fans etc.).
