Auburn's guide is well done, but I shudder when orgs list famous members who aren't really members. Michelle Pfeiffer went to a junior college, so I don't see how she's an ADPi.

My GLO is guilty of this as well on occasion, and it drives me nuts.

I agree..one of the best I have seen. I like the frequently asked questions section and also how they put pictures of each chapter's President and VP of Recruitment along with a letter..very well done!

Both Alpha Chi Omega and Delta Zeta say that their badge was recognized by the Smithsonian for being the most beautiful. Any truth behind either of these?

FWIW, I've heard that about AXO, but not DZ. But let's face it, they're all beautiful to the wearer!

I liked this link too especially the "here's the $300 outfit, here's a similar look for $100".

That is what I love about Auburn-they are thorough and practical. There is a typo however where they are showing philanthropy outfits, yet state that they provide a shirt for Skit Day. That is incorrect.

Thank you FSUZeta for linking the Auburn guide! And also thanks to southbymidwest for the South Carolina guide!

Hopefully PNMs to both these schools will be as grateful as I am :-)

Panhellenic Love

Ditto! I read a miss statement on my own chapter's page. Lynda Carter is NOT an Alpha Xi Delta. According to her IMDB profile she attended Arizona State University which has never has a chapter of Alpha Xi Delta. This myth has even been debunked in an issue of the Quill several years ago. I don't for the life of me know why people do not research these things before they put them in print. 15 minutes on Google would confirm or discredit these things. But I guess it's a sign of the times we are living in. Information is so readily accessible that we just take it for granted. Heck, I might even be guilty of it myself at times (though I doubt it). But I KNOW I'm right about Lynda Carter.

The existence of a famous alumna shouldn't even be part of the decision process of which chapter you feel most at home with. Sure it's pretty good icing on the cake, but I hope PNMs aren't basing their decisions on which GLO has had more movie stars for example!
Although I can understand the logic behind the thinking like: "look at these networking opportunities", but that shouldn't be a major deciding factor either.

Dates & Deadlines

Panhellenic Fall Formal Recruitment is almost upon us at some of the largest, Southern-style rushes in the country. Many registrations have closed but some are still open. However with late registration fees and since a PNM needs recs at many of these schools it may seem pointless to register so late. But as we all know the only way of guaranteeing of not getting a bid, is not participating in Recruitment.

Good Luck PNMs!
