It also looks like Dartmouth restructured their recruitment process. I didn't quite understand it.

"This year, the format of ISC recruitment also changed to a more open-house cycle. With the new system, women first visit the seven sororities that participate in formal recruitment during open houses and are not scheduled into time slots. After the end of the first round, PNMs select their top four preferences and then are algorithmically matched to a maximum of four houses. These matches can then be revisited during the second round.

PNMs could stay for between 30 minutes and one and a half hours during round one and between 30 minutes and two hours during round two, according to AXiD president Katherine Flessel 18."


Sounds like Dartmouth has completely abandoned RFM. They are going to regret that eventually.

Basically, PNMs are allowed to go to whichever houses they choose during the first round. Even with only 395 girls in recruitment, they had the obvious problems. Can you imagine the chaos this would be at a school like Alabama or Ole Miss?

^ Doesn't it sound like PNMs have to visit all seven first round? It doesn't sound like they can skip some and still be matched for the second round.

Regardless, it doesn't look like it worked. Isn't this the campus where the Tri Delta members voted to go local?

What's that quote from knight_shadow? "Because 'undergraduates, please abandon your national policies and make something up' will end well. "

I read these 2 quotes to mean that PNMs could pick & choose which houses they wanted to visit first round AND when:

“[Recruitment] was a lot more casual this year, in [which] girls could go to whatever houses they wanted whenever and however long,” said Kalei Akau ’18, president of Sigma Delt sorority, said.....

Potential new members could sign up on OrgSync and select the parties they wanted to attend that fit with their schedule. With these reservations, the numbers did not get out of hand, Maltais said.


I could have interpreted it incorrectly.

Both Tri Delta and the Kappa Alpha Theta chapter at Dartmouth have left their national organizations and become locals.

Yes, it is. Here's the article about that - apparently the members didn't think the "spiritual undertones" of the principles and rituals of Tri-Delta were appropriate, they thought things should be secular and they didn't like sending so much money to national.

As for the way Dartmouth is conducting rush? Sounds like a recipe for a hot mess. And as something else posted, can you even imagine this used somewhere like Ole Miss or Alabama? Utter chaos.

Is it just me, or does this all sound like a big mess?
Also, does anyone have insight into why KD is pledging much smaller classes. I know it's a newer chapter at Dartmouth, but this seems alarming even considering that.

Agreed all around. Also, the article says "While APhi, AXiD, KD, KDE, Kappa and Sigma Delt all had new member classes larger than those in fall 2016, Chi Delt maintained the same size as last fall." So, KD took less than nine last fall?!?

Well, bless Dartmouth's heart. They are giving IU a run for special snowflake recruitment. "It's more empowering," a PNM said. Sure it is, when you get to make cuts for yourself earlier, but then you have fewer options in the end, and some chapters end up with significantly lower numbers. Doesn't look good for the overall health of the system.

This just sounds like a partially structured recruitment, sans schedules, which they already realized is a bad plan for that many women rushing. Remember this is a deferred rush, held during classes - not all pre-freshmen going through over 4 days in the summer. It seems that random enforced scheduling didn't work well and allowing the women to pick their own times was a positive.

I don't recalling us ever having a chapter at Dartmouth. We have dormant chapters at Cornell and Brown, but I cannot find record of there ever being a Sigma Kappa chapter at Dartmouth.
