we had one girl come through dg who (if all rushes work in a similar manner, we have "bump" groups so that we all meet some of the same girls....) was a total GDI (and against anything sorority) until one of the fraternity guys told her to rush.
She came through and lo and behold, I got her. So when I was "bumped" she must have heard how our rush goes because she looks at my best friend (who was the bumper) and said 'so are you my new friend?" (<-- really sarcastically i might add).
Well, she more than once stated she DIDN'T want to be a DG, so to save her trouble our group cut her that night.
She is now in the sorority in which she doesn't look like she would fit at all.... but she is completely fake to EVERYONE, so whatever makes her happy I guess.

New story:

This PNM comes in first round looking totally miserable and the girl who was rushing her kept trying to ask her questions and got 1 word answers. Finally the PNM goes "Look, I'm only going through recruitment because my mom is making me. I think joining a sorority is stupid, so just stop pretending to like me so you can cut me. Okay?" This sister was totally takenaback, this was her first time at recruitment and was like "Oh Ok. So tell me about your mom then"....random I know. Rumor was that the PNM something similar at every house she went to.

So I don't know about anyone else...but I think this sister who was paired with Ms surly pnm could really think on her feet! Great comeback!

Sorority Info Night is a week or so before recruitment. All the sororities have tables set up, and PNMs can walk around and talk to the members or ask questions. They also get to meet their PXs and get a recruitment book/orientation schedule. For girls who haven't signed up yet, they can meet sorority women and decide if this is something they want to do.

During my last recruitment (2006), there was a girl who came to Sorority Info Night with her BOYFRIEND. He wasn't just there hanging around waiting on her. He was walking around to tables with her holding her hand! We thought it was a tad odd that she'd bring her bf to a such a girly event.

She came over to our table and we were chatting her up. She was a 2nd year freshman and she had transfered to KSU to be with him, and she said he came along because he wanted to make sure "the sororities weren't full of crazy drunk girls" before he would be okay with her joining one.

She asked some other questions too like, "If I live in the house, can he stay overnight, because we're used to being together alot?" or "Do I have to go to events with other guys at them, because I have a boyfriend."

This was incredibly awkward. Imagine talking to a PNM whose bf is attached to her hip. She'd ask a question, then interrupt the person answering her because he'd say something. Or HE WOULD ask questions like "Now if she joins a sorority, how much time is that going to take up in her schedule?" or "Can she have a boyfriend and be in a sorority?" Why are YOU asking questions for her??

I actually heard her ask a Panhellenic Exec member "Now if I sign up to do this, can he come to the parties with me?" Obviously the Exec girl said no.
This must not have been the right answer because Boyfriend Girl ended up not signing up.

She visited a few chapters that spring for COB and guess who she brought to the events? Yep, the boyfriend. She ended up not being invited to further events with any of them.

One of my grandlittles is in her major, and says that she is still with him and they're engaged.

What a great screen name. At least you knew before recruitment that she wouldn't be a good member of the chapter. She would just made an extra 2 bodies.

That sounds like an excessively controlling and borderline abusive (if not abusive) relationship.

Should we take bets that she will be a statistic? Sad but true

Just curious if this has happened anywhere else. This fall, we just gotten finished with our skit and I was walking around and I notice this one pnm was sitting alone. I thought maybe her girl hadn't made it back to her yet, so I started talking to her. She was really sweet and kept on talking about how much she loved us and wanted to come back for pref. Well, after the party I went to find out if anyone else knew who she was and it turned out, we had cut her the night before! Apparently she snuck in during the party hoping we would give her another chance! Luckily she didn't show up the next night.

Sleepy PNM
 
About two months ago my chapter was having a Pajama Party/ Movie Night COR event. Since our school doesnt allow greeks to have houses we were having our event in a classroom in the business school. As pnms walked in me the recruitment chair and the membership chair welcomed the girls. We noticed that one of the girls had like a really big back pack on. We thought it was weird but didnt really say any thing. All of the girls were talking and getting food getting ready to sit down to pick the movie we were going to watch. I would say it has been maybe like 10mins since the pnms have come in so it is time for us to pass out the info sheet for the girls to fill out. So I walk around making sure I every girl gets a sheet when i realize I cant find that girl with the big backpack on. So then I walk to the front of the room and guess who I find the missing pnm. This girl came to our recruitment event and went to sleep before the movie even started. She laid on the floor a yoga mat and a sheet then she laid on top of the with an extra sheet and pillow and honestly went to sleep. WHO DOES THAT!!

Ole Miss Phi Mu 01-29-2008 05:38 PM

There usually is so we don't know how she got in, but there are so many girls that go through that it's hard to keep track of who goes to what party, so we believe that she just showed up with the group that was supposed to be at that party and came in with the rest of the group. And I do think she got a bid somewhere, I just don't know where. I was glad that she didn't show up at pref, I guess that when she got her schedule for pref and saw that we didn't give her another chance, she just gave up.

I'd bet the Phi Mus told her recruitment counselor, who read her the riot act. I'm just :eek:! Next year when she's rushing as a sister somewhere, she's going to realize how shocking a deed that was and be super-embarrassed.

Be glad you didn't have a Sex and the City themed party. :eek:
