Sorry to dig up an old thread but I came to post probably my last post on Greekchat, or at least for a while.

I am in my last semester and studying abroad, but I still keep an eye on things at my chapter via facebook. We just completed a Spring COB event and we had enough women accept bids (almost as many as our fall formal) that if they all stay we will have made quota for the first time in many years. My Spring COB class when I joined was 7 women, the COB class for this period is nearly 30. By having a couple of semesters of women who were excited to be there and passionate about growing our chapter, the attitude of the house has completely changed from defeatist to excited. If you are an advisor at a struggling chapter, I would seriously encourage you to read this thread and see if you can implement any of our successes at your chapter.

Thanks everyone for your support.

SUCH good news!
I know that it's rare when a chapter can overcome its problems, but you've done it!
Best of luck to your chapter in the future!

Thanks all. Oh I forgot to mention-- after 5 years of not being represented at all we have had a woman on Panhellenic finally for two consecutive years. One of our sisters was voted in as the school's Head Recruitment Counselor, which is a pretty big deal because she'll be semi in charge of Fall Formal. My School's Panhellenic was actually in a bit of a scandal over it, because word got out that they had made some nasty comments about my house during their deliberations to the tune of "they're not cool enough to be in charge of membership" and chosen someone less qualified initially, as well as there being some other allegations of them playing favorites with so called "top" houses. So I do have some reason to believe, and it was confirmed to be correct, that they were problematically biased against some houses, but hopefully now that we are represented it will be a non-issue again. Things are looking up on all sides.
