I'm just so glad to see how supportive the Panhellenic community is of ADPi . Alpha Phi is scheduled to colonize in 2015, and I was worried about how a new chapter would be received. Now I'm more excited than ever that we get to be part of such a great system. ( Still trying to wrap my mind around the size of those new member classes!)

For Greekchat to answer for PNMs and families. How much stock should a Potential New Member or her family put in information they get from Ole Miss Greek Affairs? What if the information on Greekchat conflicts with information from Ole Miss Greek Affairs or its publication the Angelia?

Honestly I think the way to go about it is to remember that Greek Affairs will tell you what you need to get A bid not necessarily the BEST bid for you.
They are pretty reliable about what to wear, grades to enter, and times, etc.

Greek chat has the benefit of being able to review what has happened over several years but lets face it most of us have been out of the game a while - we dont always know the latest change or what the cool kids are up to these days. (Unless of course you are an advisor at that school - props to MP. . )

Think about it like a job interview and you want to put your best foot forward. Meetings that are labelled optional you should still try your best to attend. Minimum GPA is just that - minimum -thus not competitive.
Rec letter information is chapter specific so Greek Affairs cant really tell you for sure - if everyone on here is saying do your best to get letters know that to have the BEST chance of maximizing your invitations your need 1 LOR for each chapter

And here in Georgia, it's pronounced incorrectly. In Spanish, the explorer's name is pronounced, of course, PON-say day lay-AWNH. So when I moved here eons ago, I would be pronouncing it like that and the locals would fall over laughing and say, "No, we say PONSE dee LEE-on." And they do. Embarrassing when we have foreign visitors. Well, at least ADPi is on a street with "lion" in it!

Of course, in Georgia, the city of Martinez is pronounced MAR-ti-nez and Villa Rica isn't Vee-ya REE-ca, it's VILL-a RICK-a.

Mary Poppins, about all I can add to what HQWest says is the same thing that I say of all SEC schools: that many old-time Greeks have been stunned by the fabulous legacies who have been dropped by their legacy chapters. So-- legacies, make sure you have an open mind.

Oh - don't get started on all the pronunciations of Lafayette in this country! Let's see, there are:

1) Le-FAY-it in Alabama
2) Laugh-fee-ette in English and La-FI-ette in French in Louisiana
3) The one above in MS
4) LA-fee-ette in Indiana
And there are probably others!

In New Orleans, the French street names have their own unique "Yat" pronunciation:

Burgundy = Bur-GUN-dee

Carondelet = Ca-ron-da-LETT

Chartres = Charters

Fontainebleau = Fountain Blue

Toulouse = TOO-looz
