When I was an active, our entire NPC system was about 150. among 5 chapters. "Total" was referenced in Panhel documents, but none of us could have defined it.

When I pledged, we had 4 NPC chapters, and about 120 women. We had one local that had about 15 women. There were two "little sister" groups who probably numbered around 25 each. They became NPCs a few years later when the little sister groups were banned as part of Title IX (to maintain single gender organizations).

When I was a collegiate member, we had three NPC sororities on campus and hovered around 60 members total across all three. To have 125+ new members per chapter blows my mind.

As boggled as our minds are, this is just normal for girls there now. It's been like this for the past 7-8-9 or so years.
Our second year after colonization, the Fraternity had to rewrite some of our rules because our numbers went beyond what anybody could imagine. ONE officer to handle all recs? That was impossible.

Alabama's recruitment went off the charts when the school started recruiting OOS students - particularly ones in Texas. With their top 10% only rule, many Texas students were left out. In stepped Alabama with scholarship money and multiple football National Championships. Football is a big deal in Texas. With their colleges tanking in football - Alabama thrashed UT in one NC game - the students were ripe for the picking.

Is Texas driving some of the giant numbers at Arkansas and Ole Miss, too? 160+ in a pledge class at Arkansas?! It would take me a whole semester to learn all their names.

Alabama colleges pluck a lot of students from Georgia as well. They offer scholarships and in state tuition to many.

Absolutely. and Georgia, I suspect.
Those lottery-funded educations are great, but a lot of good students get pushed out.

I know California students are surging to out-of-state colleges. There are scads at Alabama.

Yep. I know a kid who didn't get into UGA with a 3.8 GPA. He went to Bama. I swear, I know more people's kids who've gone out of state rather than stay. A lot of them go to Alabama schools.
