:( This makes me so, so sad. When I went through recruitment, there was one African American girl in my rush group. Another girl in our group spent an uncomfortable amount of time on the first day asking her why she wanted to be in a "white" sorority, and wouldn't it be weird, she should try NPHC, etc. It was so appalling to overhear, and unfortunately it took our Pi Chis a little while to notice and put a stop to it (because the rest of us PNMs couldn't deter her as hard as we tried). Ugh.

Great job picking those Rho Gammas this year vpm (i'm not bitter or anything hahaha).

My sister tells a story of how, at an officers' roundtable to discuss recruitment, someone from another chapter piped up, "How do you rush a black girl?" (there were all NPCs on our campus at the time.)

Admittedly, this girl was not the brightest crayon in the box, but my sister said her jaw and most others' just dropped.

Wow.... because obviously they're an entirely different breed of human? wtf. How do these people make it through college, let alone life?

These are sad and appalling, but I hate to say it: I am not surprised :( SMH

This is the only interesting thing in your post.

I know that the OL talked to the girl (the PNM) and the panhellenic VP was informed.

Whoa folks! Nobody knows what question she asked. Everybody is simply jumping to the conclusion that this was inappropriate. That potential new member could very well have asked questions about the Divine 9, etc. and it became obvious that she was actually for information on NPHCs. If she hadn't asked some questions first but was immediately directed to another area, that would be one thing, but the OP said that "after she asked some questions" the young woman was directed to another table.

Agreed. That is so messed up on so many levels.

Glad I wasn't the only one who found that odd.

That's not terribly odd. If you look at my Myers Briggs results, I'm an Feeler, not a Thinker. If she's talking about her personality type, not weird.

jennyj87 08-27-2010 11:26 AM

Not so much weird. Last night NPHC had "meet the greeks" but it wasn't very expained that it was for NPHC and those interested in SIA. Our chapter president told us to come and show support so about 10-15 girls from each NPC sorority came. There were a bunch of girls only interested in the NPC sororities.

Since recruitment is next week, we're obviously not allowed to talk to PNMs. We had so many girls coming up to us saying "Hi My names Britt-" and having to cut them off explaining that we're not allowed to talk to them outside the rooms. They looked confused.

One of my sisters told me that a girl she turned away went and talked to a member in another sorority who didn't turn her away. She was worried that the girl would think we lied to her or just didn't want to talk to her.

We've had this conversation, she apparently did not mean the MBTI.
