Princeton Sorority Recruitment Fall 2005

The three NPC sororities at Princeton took 104 women. Of the 150 who registered for recruitment, 23 dropped out and another 23 did not get bids or did not get bids to the sorority they wanted, according to the school paper. I don't know what quota was, or the exact number that each sorority took.

That's good to hear. I'm heading up to Princeton for family weekend (my cousin goes there) and I'd love to meet some of the new Pi Phis!

I read that article and I was shocked that the university sent letters to parents discouraging Greek life. Has Princeton ever recognized Greeks? When these groups came on campus, was the administration opposed to it? I just can't imagine how a GLO would go about colonization knowing that the university didn't want them there. Congratulations to those women for sticking it out and being successful.

Their attitude is pretty typical of most Ivy League schools. Yale doesn't recognize Greek Life, either. Most Canadian universities don't, as well.

Yeah, but most schools won't send letters home DISCOURAGING students from rushing. When Greek Life was banned at Princeton, dining clubs took over, and I guess the school's worried about the competition.

If I recall, last year when the university did this the sororities had their biggest pledge classes ever. They probably drew attention to the Greeks and people who wouldn't have known about them were made aware of their exisitence.
