Hey all, I am a bit behind in terms of gathering recs... To be honest the whole thing kind of slipped from my mind until early June. I've spent the last week and a half or so contacting friends, family, teachers, etc. asking if they could put me in touch with someone, but no luck except for one (possibly two) chapters.
I will be going to the University of Missouri. Rush starts August 14th. I've been searching everywhere - the school's PHA site, and the individual chapters' sites, but I can't find any info about a recommendation deadline. I know that last year it was August 1st. I was thinking of contacting my local alumnae chapters, but as I most likely don't know any of these ladies, I don't want to be a hassle. Considering when my rush starts, do you think it is too late to politely ask them to put me in touch with a local alumna?
This would give them somewhere around a month to write me a letter...?

You do not contact the individual chapters (alumnae or collegiate) or the college panhellenic. You need to contact the alumnae panhellenic closest to you. http://www.npcwomen.org/alumnae-panh...directory.aspx

I see - sorry about that, I got kind of confused with all the chapters and terms. :( I already sent out an email early this morning to the local Tri Delta alumnae chapter.. hope that's not considered rude or tacky..? Do you think it'd be too late for me to contact my local alumnae panhellenic? I don't want to rush anyone...

You won't know unless you try. Just go email them right now.

Is it too late?
 
I just got an e-mail from a frantic pnm - and yes, I'm going to write the rec. :rolleyes:

I just got a whole slew of requests from my local alumnae panhellenic this morning. It shouldn't be too late, but the sooner the better.

The Denver Panhellenic Association website is not in working order. I have been trying to find contact info for them for a month. I live in Colorado and need recs for the University of Arkansas. I have found some on my own, but really wanted to use that group as a resource. Does anybody know how to contact them?

It looks like they have a Facebook page.

For you rec-savvy women: what should a PNM do when she finds out her youth group advisor is an NPC sorority alum, but has no idea what a rec is or how to write one?

Always AlphaGam 06-22-2011 08:47 PM

What NOT to do.
 
Now that PNMs know they shouldn't solicit recs on GC, they've taken to the FB pages of HQs.

Seriously? I'm all for using social media to your advantage, but COME ON.

ETA: She went to the Delta Gamma and Tri Delta pages and posted the exact same thing. Won't be surprised if she hit up all of em!

She looks like Kate Hudson. (Random observation)

I'm planning on going through recruitment at University of Massachusetts Amherst - do I need recs? I'm really not sure how recruitment works there and I can't find much online, and nothing about recs.

KSUViolet06 07-13-2011 05:40 PM

^^^That's not a "must have recs" school at all. If you can find them, cool. But if you can't it's not a big deal.

greekhopefull 07-13-2011 06:10 PM

Thank you! I don't know anyone who's in a sorority so I really doubt I'll be able to get recs.

I looked and couldn't find it. What did some random girl post on there? I only saw stuff about new prints coming out for letters and the thing about the Miss USA pageant. Am I missing something?
