Birmingham Southern College Bid list!
 
Wooooo! Looks like everyone took at least quota of 13!

Here's a link to the document that has the names if you are interested:

Everyone took more then 13, which was quota. So why wasn't quota just set higher?

Am I the only one who thinks that it's a bit creepy to publish the full names of girls along with their school and what sororities they're in?

You're not the only one.

Nope. Why do we even need to know that?

Auburn University and the University of Alabama publish lists with the girls' hometowns. Sure helps the hometown newspapers. What college was it - posted here a few days ago - that also lists parents names? A Midwest college I think.
Note that they did not add e-mail addresses or phone numbers. Why would it be any creepier than it appearing in the hometown newspaper?:confused:

Because the hometown newspaper is generally limited to the hometown?:)

I think it's more of a cultural thing; after all, the three schools that have done it so far are all in Alabama. It's a little strange, especially considering today's climate of internet privacy concerns, but it's not anything that someone who was committed to finding this information couldn't find. Besides, don't most chapters list their members and hometowns?

Look, y'all, it's already online...I didn't copy this off some private list. This is off the BSC website and several people asked me to find out who pledged what. However, I couldn't get the link to work.

Several schools do this.

You may not be the only one who thinks it is creepy, but I don't find it so myself. As someone pointed out, perhaps it is a regional thing because it is done a lot where I live. Like a lot of things, the internet and it's information can be used for good or bad. Publishing names and schools is not as bad (IMO) as all the stuff that students put on facebook and myspace about themselves for the world to see.

OK, I"ve edited the original post to include the link to the document. People can look if they want, and not look if they want. Subject is now closed (so please stop emailing me about it!) :D

FSUZeta 09-14-2006 09:17 AM

birmingham southern posts the name and hometown of all incoming freshman before school starts.

tunatartare 09-14-2006 09:30 AM

I think that's also kind of creepy.
