University of Alabama Sorority Recruitment
 
University of Alabama Panhellenic announced 2647 women had registered for sorority recruitment August 2017. Formal recruitment will take place from August 11-August 19. Bid Day is August 19th. This is the largest number of women registered for Greek recruitment at any university/college in the nation.

Alabama will welcome Sigma Kappa to the campus in 2018.

Best wishes to all potential new members.

Good lord that's a high amount. If no women dropped that would make quota 165, which some chapters are probably going to get anyways with quota additions...

They need more than SK to also colonize. Holy cow! Of course, I'd love to see us back at Bama.

Is there space to build new housing on campus? Obviously Sigma Kappa's going to have a house one way or another or they wouldn't be colonizing but I wonder what it looks like after that.

Yes there is room for several houses. Two of the old ones are being used as "swing" houses for those building new so those would be available at some point. Also there are at least two other locations that can be made available.

From white I understand, as of yesterday morning (beginning of Round 3) only a handful of PNMs had been released by the sororities. Most of the 130 or so that quit did it voluntarily, or didn't show up to begin with.

Has anyone heard why they went from 9 parties today to 7? Did a lot of girls get cut or did a lot drop out?

No huge drop out numbers.....
They set up that schedule last spring and it goes in the Greek Chic handbook, which is printed and handed out at Convocation....printed well in advance, of course.
It just worked out with the numbers that they could lop off two parties. More rest for everybody.

Don't know for sure but I would guess that this schedule was drawn up well in advance to be printed in Greek Chic and The number of parties necessary was based on the possibility of having more women participate than even last year's large numbers, which did not happen. Therefore, they could give everyone a little lighter schedule and a little more sleep!

Is that freshman only or both together?

So exciting about Sigma Kappa!

Not many groups left who aren't at Alabama now

npccuriosity 08-21-2017 10:24 PM

They have huge chapter and pledge class sizes! Sounds like they need more than Sigma Kappa to colonize. What happened to Delta Phi Epsilon, didn't they present a few years ago?
