My sorority only saw three girls! Oh boy!!

YIKES!!! That's not very fair.
Is it not mandatory that every woman visit every sorority?

Yes, each woman is suppose to see each of the sorority. But, if they can't for a specific reason (like class), then they can see some of them.

That's soooooo crappy that everyone did not visit every house. While sometimes it sounds ideal to just go to one or two that you want, how many of these recruitment threads said, "Wow, I didn't know these girls/like them before, but rush really changed my opinion!"

What do chapters normally do when you know a girl that is going through but she didn't visit your house? Is that an automatic cut? Or do they sometimes get invited back?

This semester, here at LHU, we're having "structured" informal recruitment!! The rules surrounding this are a little fuzzy. We didn't have round robins at the individual sorority's house (since one of them has a "house"). The others have places where several of the sorority's members live together, but there's not known as houses.

Since we have informal recruitment this semester, the girls are allowed to go wherever they want to go...

Sorry this is late but...

EagleChick19 -

When we had structured informal, it consisted of Meet the Greeks (Round Robin), theme, and pref. Every rushee had to visit every group at MTG even though it was an "informal" rush. This was held in a campus building, in classrooms. (That way the rushees couldn't duck out and try to skip a group)

Theme - you could skip the ones you wanted to skip. These were held at the sorority's house, an "unofficial" house, or in a campus building, depending on the facilities the group had/wanted to use.

Pref - invite only. We could invite girls who didn't come to theme, if we wanted. Events held at the same places as theme.

It is basically like guys' rush except with a round robin and no porno (hee hee).

Ohhh...I see! Well, that's a pretty good idea, I guess. It's cool that open bids get that same excited, "where will I end up?" feeling that formal recruitment PNMs have.

Do the bulk of your members come from the formal recruitment in the spring?

Also, do the chapters at LHU have webpages? I tried to look it up on the college website, but didn't have much luck.

Well, I know that Tri-Sigma has one. The address is: http://phoenix.lhup.edu/~sss/. The other might, but they are not in LHU's official system. AST has an alumnae website, but that's it.

A lot of our members pledge in the spring. I pledged in the spring of 2001 with 7 other people.

BTW, I forgot to tell you that we had another event tonight!!! This time it was Skit Night! Basically, all the sororities put on some kind of skit. I'll give a rundown of what everyone did.

ABC: They did a skit called "Cooking with the ABC's". It was cute. Two sisters were controlling the hands of two other sisters while trying to bake a cake!!

DEF: They did a skit called "The DEFs Man." It was a take off of the Ladies Man from SNL. It was hilarious!!

GHI: They did a skit taken from SNL about Stewart. It was very funny.

JKL: They did a skit called "Who wants to be an JKL sister?" They had to answer questions about the organization.

EagleChick19,
Hang in there!! Any sort of organized rush was rather challenging for us on my campus as well, but we always did well with COB. Those who truely are AST's at heart will find you. . .and you will find them.

I feel your frustration. . .I've been there too!! Good Luck!

Tau Love and Roses,
PsychTau

We had a rush last night. Our theme was "Game Night." But, no PNMs came. But, the night wasn't a totally waste. We talked about our theme for homecoming. But, we have another rush on Thursday.

EagleChick,

Believe me when I tell you that I know what it's like to throw a COB party and have nobody come. It sucks-- that's what it's like. The important thing is not to let your sisters get discouraged. I'm glad you used the time to discuss your Homecoming theme. I remember several times when we just wound up playing Twister or Trivial Pursuit by ourselves, but it was still fun sisterly bonding. Best of luck to you during your "Pref" parties. I know you'll find some cool new sisters.

Yours,
KappaKittyCat
