This is not just a Sorority thing, it goes as well for Fraternities!

Our house is pretty new and set up for two man rooms with a bath between then. But they still only house one per room. We too charge parlor fees which is only fare as all members use the house.
The main reason houses like to have full houses is to pay the bill incured which is by everyone so that is fair. We had an unwritten rule that each member must live in the house but that has gone by the way side. We are in the process of making it into a rule!

When we had our first house as a local, we all got our outside contracts cancelled and moved in and packed like sardines! Why, that was where all of the action was happening. Those that live in dorms can miss so much. We wanted to live together so when a decision was made on the spur of the moment, it happened. Those in the dorms or other off campus did not get that experience.
If I had not gotten married my Senior year, I would have lived in the house.

Kids today are to pampered and self absorbed to not have "Their own Space".

Good luck and get your houses filled as this equals money for the chapter!!!
