Academic year here!~Theta Mu
I like this way so much better. We switch over after shadowing; which ends in May. Then we have Eboard, Ecouncil, and Chapter Retreat during the summer to plan for the upcoming year. I think it works very nice and makes a lot of sense.
Our greek system is half and half on which orgs. does what system which is weird. For example us and Theta Chi are Academic while Alpha Xi Delta and Phi Delta Theta are Calendar. Their year just seems so strange to me. (AxiD and Phi Delts) but I guess they like it, if they are using it. so rock on to them.
Currently Our Panhellenic is also on Academic year system. (mainly because Phi Sig was the first National on campus and they adopted our way of life. hee hee) But both Alpha Xi and Phi Sig are currently deciding if we should switch it to Calendar. I think it will pass. And only because if new Pan Council starts in Jan. they will more ready and prepared to plan Formal Recruitment in the Fall. From the past, we have experienced problems on Academic (with pan.) because during the switch the new council doesn't get into the swing of things until October (i.e. after recruitment). And it would work better if the same girls do all the bookings, mailing, pr, etc. then having someone step in and finish a half done job. (which is what we do now) Also it has been hard for Alpha Xi to get used to the Academic year. They have to hold special elections just for panhellenic, and they have been struggling with filling positions so we want to help them out. (and it will be easier to just have Phi Sig switch
We are pretty flexible)
Anyone else have one way for Phi Sig and another for Panhellenic?
