The Fast and the Furious Live Recruitment (x Three)

So, two girls that I tutored during their senior year in High School last year, and one friend who is a junior transfer like I was (but traditional college aged) are going through recruitment right now.

We'll call the PNMs:
Becky
Hannah
Lissa

The houses are:
Toretto
Letty
Brian
Mia

I'll update everyone on the progress of my PNM crew on the road called recruitment once I get home from work.

Pre Recruitment House Tours:
Becky and Lissa liked Toretto, Letty and Mia right away.

Lissa also had a good time at Brian's house tour, but Becky wasn't so sure after she talked with a few of the girls. They both are keeping open minds.

Hannah liked all of the houses.

All girls looked forward to the next stage, which is recruitment orientation

This is no longer a live story as I didn't want to affect the chances of any of the three PNMs.


Sisterhood Day 1:
Hannah and Lissa both visited Brian and Toretto on this day. Hannah thought that everything went well with both parties, Lissa was really looking forward to Toretto's party, as her cousin was a Toretto at another school, and always talked about the wonderful things that the chapter did together. She wondered if Toretto here did the same kinds of things as Toretto at her cousin's university. She felt that from her impressions, and chats with some of the sisters, Toretto at this school DID have some similar activities to Toretto at cousin's University. That made Lissa really happy. Lissa liked Brian even more than Toretto, and in talking with the sisters, felt like she'd come home.

Becky visited Toretto and Mia. She found Toretto to be fun, and liked the flow of the conversations she had there. Mia was very enjoyable, and she liked how excited the sisters were, and she liked how friendly they were.

Sisterhood Day 2:
Hannah and Lissa both visited Mia and Letty. They enjoyed conversations and thought that they went really well at both. Hannah and her rusher at Letty had a lot of fun talking about shared interests, and when she was bumped, she felt that she really clicked with the sister about a TV show that they both like to watch. She found Mia to be lots of fun, and enjoyed her communications with them. Choosing is too hard when you liked ALL of the houses.
Becky visited Brian and Letty. Becky was concerned because one of her relatives is a Letty, and promised to write her a rec, then did not follow through. She knows that recs aren't all that common at this school, but she was slightly worried nevertheless. Letty was fun, and she could see herself there, but something was missing. She couldn't put her finger on what it was. Brian was a hoot. The sister who rushed her had a great sense of humor and she felt comfortable with that. Lissa just didn't feel a connection at Letty. She tried, and kept an open mind.... But it wasn't happening. She loved Mia, and loved talking to the sisters most of all. They seemed very nice, funny, and she felt that she could fit in just right there.

Then ranking:

Hannah:
Letty
Toretto
Brian
Mia

Lissa:
Mia
Brian
Toretto
Letty

Becky:
Toretto
Brian
Mia
Letty

Funny that each girl had such wildly different rankings. But all 4 chapters at UNR are pretty balanced, aren't they?

Very much so. I don't feel that ANY of them are weak.

Philanthropy Night

Becky was invited back to Mia. She tried to keep a happy face, but that wasn't happening. Her Rho Gamma encouraged her to look at the bright side, that it just takes one. She understood, but having just one house left made her feel sad. She had a good time at Mia, and enjoyed chatting with the sister who was rushing her, and with some of the other sisters as well.

She decided to stay in it, and put Mia down at ranking time. She said that she'd rather be Greek than not Greek at all.

Hannah was invited back to Letty, Brian and Mia.

Her first party was with Brian. She loved her conversations, and the energy, and her feelings about Brian from Sisterhood round hadn't changed. They were definitely on her list.

At Mia, she liked their philanthropy, since she'd had friends whose families were involved with a related cause. The sisters were nice, and she decided to rank them right behind Brian. To her, Brian seemed to be more "her" and she hoped that she'd return for preference.

Letty didn't seem to have the same shine that it did during first round. She heard great things about their philanthropy, and a huge event every year that they do to raise funds for it, but her heart belonged to Brian and Mia.

She ranked: Brian, Mia, Letty.

Lissa was invited back to Toretto, Mia and Brian.

She loved Toretto, once again, and wanted to go back for Preference.

Brian seemed a bit quieter for her this night. She did run into the sister who rushed her first round, and the sister waved and greeted her by name. She just didn't feel like she immediately hit it off with the sisters that actually rushed her on this night, and that concerned her. She asked her Rho Gamma if this was normal, and the RG assured her that there were all kinds of personalities in the houses, and to not judge a book by the few pages that she sees in recruitment.

Mia was even better for her tonight and she liked how genuine everyone was and hearing about something cute that the chapter did as part of their philanthropy the previous school year that was VERY popular.

Still, Lissa went with her gut and ranked: Toretto, Mia, Brian.
