WeaverD, having a crazy roommate can wear you down. I totally been there and done that. Hopefully, she can get a new one and possibly find a sorority home through Alpha Phi or COB.

Thank you Sciencewoman. I feel like I'm a Hall Director again, but with my own child. SMH.

Thank you Jolene. I think if she didn't have the roommate drama, her outcome may have been very different, but she's learning to roll with the punches and still being positive. I just feel bad that this is her introduction to college life...dealing with a mean-spirited, petty, and toxic person. I've been having to calm my wife down each night after the tears from my daughter and not let her drive to Athens to show the roommate what an angry mom can really be like. If anything, my daughter is learning real life experiences...good, bad, or indifferent.

WeaverD, please encourage your daughter to explore the opportunity of the Alpha Phi colonization. It truly is an opportunity to lay the foundation of a brand new chapter. I was the general advisor of a Zeta chapter founded at a nearby university. What a privilege it was to work with those women. I can't tell you how often I told them what important work they were doing, and how much easier I had had it, joining an old established chapter! They had a closer sisterhood too, even though my chapter was established and had a house. Best wishes with whatever your daughter decides, but please come back and let us know!

Amen, sista! I've had the same experience working with new colonies in my group. What a blessing and honor!

My sorority sister's daughter went Gamma Phi. They were her top choice throughout all the rounds.

So true FSUZeta and Titchou. I was a member of a recolonization process. It took a lot of work, time, effort, trial and error, and frustration, but I think I gained a greater appreciation for what is involved with a new organization and had the opportunity to take on a leadership role right out of the gate. I also take a lot of pride in going back to my chapter and seeing the charter on the wall with my name on it as well as the composite with so few brothers on it but it is surrounded by 20 years worth of composites with 130+ members and remembering that I am part of an older history. It is what sparked an interest in my first professional career and why I continue to volunteer with my organization. I advise a chapter that started off as a colony 6 years ago and finally won a top chapter award at our leadership school this summer. That was a great feeling to be part of the history of this young chapter and group of men.

My daughter doesn't always follow the easy road (as a parent, I sometimes wish she did), but through struggle comes perseverance and through challenge, growth. I'm really not sure what she will do, but what an exciting time to be to be young, in college, and have an enormous amount of opportunity before you.

So, word is that Panhellenic upped chapter total to 278, so a handful of houses are offering bids (I guess technically COB, not snap bids). They have until Friday to finish up in time for Alpha Phi to start their colonization.
