Thanks, I try. I will say though, I know you mentioned being married at some point, and UM is a school with a very traditional Greek scene (mostly 18-22 non-marrieds) large houses, and rather strict live-in requirements. So that is something to think about.

Which A?

Also you need to get in touch with sorority alumnae. They will know what to put in the recs. Try contacting your local alumnae panhellenic, but first ask everyone you know who might be an alumna. Or know one. Or have heard of one.

That doesn't seem right.. but also i know each sorority has a website where they have standard rec forms but the only people i know who could fill them out would be my family and relatives. Don't know anyone else in this state and my rush starts on the 16th.

Um. Get your family and relatives to help you. Soon. Like, really, really, REALLY soon.

Keep in mind that only members of that organization can fill out a Rec form for you. If Aunt Suzy is unaffiliated, or she's an ABC, she can't fill out an XYZ rec form for you. Contact your local Panhell Alumnae office and see if some recs for you can be put together on a fast track.

@Rushez: YES. GO. GO NOW. (are you on the phone yet?!) You will need recs. Talk to all the women you know and ask them if they or anyone they know are alumnae from the sororities at UofArk. They do not need to have attended UofA, just a member of the organizations there.

IrishLake 08-10-2010 12:40 AM

That form is fine for a Kappa Delta to fill out and send in on your behalf. But only a KD sister can do it, active or an alumnae in good standing.

IrishLake 08-10-2010 12:52 AM

Send them a very polite email asking if it would be possible for any members to write you recs for Arkansas recruitment. Apologize for it being short notice. Mention you went to school overseas. You will have to supply a resume, a photo, and possibly your transcripts from your secondary school (if you can get them). If any women are willing to write you recs, be sure to express your gratitude. Best of luck! Let us know how things turn out!

IrishLake 08-10-2010 12:54 AM

Oh, and keep in mind that just because the Little Rock panhell group has a member to one org, doesn't mean that it is at your college. Only contact the ladies who belong to orgs that are at U of A. (For example, a Kappa Alpha Theta member is listed as a contact, but there is no chapter at Arkansas).

Rushez 08-10-2010 12:55 AM

Okay i will. thanks so much for the advice! i really appreciate it.

Click on that link that says "sorority recruitment workshop" and then "sorority recruitment workshop handbook." See if you can still register with the Panhellenic.

Iowa State - helpful but not a must
Texas Christian Unviersity (TCU) - a 100% must
