Rushing as a Senior

I am currently a Junior at The University of Iowa and I just transferred here from a community college, so therefore this is my first year here. I was skeptical of rushing in the beginning because I was not sure if it was really for me. I kept going back and fourth and with recruitment being the first weekend of school I did not have much time to decide. However, now I completely regret not doing it! There is no informal recruitment, so I would love to do it as a senior..but at that time would it be pointless or hard to do? What would the sorority think of someone rushing as a senior? :/

Your campus climate is going to dictate whether or not it is possible/realistic to think you might get a bid.

That being said...you aren't going to be a typical PNM or a typical member, but you won't be the first ever. I had a friend who joined a sorority in her senior year. She had been a very close friend of the sorority since her freshman year. Finally, she decided to make her bond official, and she had a wonderful time. I haven't been in touch with her much, but I think she is still involved with her organization.

(I went to a tiny school where everyone knew everyone, and the whole campus seemed to be shocked by this girl joining! But who cares! She had fun. )

Go through recruitment, but don't expect much. Unless upperclassmen and seniors are the norm amongst PNM's at your school, I think you have a very slim chance of receiving a bid. The only successful senior PNM's I knew were ones with strong friendships amongst the sororities. I don't mean to discourage you and you should certainly check it out.

You mention that you are a junior transfer. Will you be graduating on time or will you have a longer time at the university after transferring?
