Texas Recuitment Info

My daughter just went through the rush process so I will try to think of stuff while it is fresh.
Soroities are Big in Texas, like hair and the state. You will needs recs at the following school: Baylor, SMU, TCU, Texas Tech, NTSU, A&M. Your will need recs and additional letters of support for the Univ. of Texas. Being a legacy helps at some school, the private school and may not be necessary at other.
Each city in Texas (Dallas, Houston, Arlington, Ft. Worth, Austin, San Antonio, Waco, Midland, Katy, Sugarland, etc have Alumane panhellenic association. Many have web sites. FYI
Houston Meeting Saturday, February 23, 2008
10:00 AM and 12:00 noon
St Luke's Methodist Church
3471 Westheimer at Edloe
Sometime during the Spring of your senior year they will have a meeting. At the meeting they will give you names of individual sorority recuritment local person. This is an alumi of the sorority who coordinates the gathering of your hs transcript, photos (Face and standing) and sends it to the sorotiy. Each soroity has diffenent request. Some want two photos, etc. This person is very helpful and you should write her a thank you note when you are finished. Each school has different dates they need your information. It is in June for UT, Tech,etc. Later for Baylor and SMU as they don't have rush until Jan. So don't delay too long in getting pictures taken and your transcripts form your hs.
I would suggest that you get a rec for each sorority. My daughter found people to write them for her that were teachers, friends from church, family friends and her grandmother friends. People in one sorority could often recommend people in other sororities who where their friends who could write recs for you. You will need to make a resume to send to each of these people as well as a small picture of you. (wallet size) This being said my daughter had friends that pledged sororities at Tech, A&M, TCU, Baylor, SMU, NTSU and Texas. She had friends that joined sororities in AZ and none of this applied at all. It did apply to LSU. Best of luck just remember it takes time. In the end the payoff is great.

i know that the houston alumnae panhellenic chapter is very particular about who attends their recruitment information session. they want to limit it to pnms within a certain geographic area. their website is very helpful and spells out which pnms would fall under their jurisdiction and which alumnae panhellenic chapters the other pnms should contact.

I can't stress how important this is. UT is not the SEC, but darned close!

Ask people who went there or are there now. I think my daughter thought she needed 10 or maybe more additional letters of support at UT. But when she did pick UT this info left my mind, if it important for someone to know I can find it out.

The Panhellenic Association of San Antonio's website is found at http://www.panhellenic-sa.org/701.html.

As an FYI, we no longer hold an informational meeting in the spring. We do our outreach through college fairs and the web. To register through the PASA, visit the website and review the information there regarding recruitment.

I also just wanted to mention that El Paso has an Alumnae Panhellenic Association as well. From my understanding its not that well known...but I was told they are trying to get more people involved and it known to the High school girls.

I don't think we have a website though

In the Midwest, Pahellenic is actively deemphasizing the importance of recs to PNMs, you know, "levelling the playing field" and all that. (We have many, many PNMs that go through rush that have never solicited a single rec.) Have they tried to implement this change in the South as well? Or, have the greek culture and alumnae there held Panhellenic at bay?
