Video from UGA Greek Life Orientation session

Here is a copy of the video that was shown in the UGA Greek Life info session yesterday. I was surprised how good it was.

That is superb (a word I seldom use, and only when it fits - which it definitely does!).

Arizona Greek Life - take note!

This year, Texas A&M is going from 3 prefs to 2 for that very reason. They don't have as many chapters as Georgia but it will be a change for them.

Love UGA's video!

How "must have" are Recs for UGA recruitment. My daughter is not a legacy for any chapters and I know she has already had some submitted for a few chapters and commitments from alumnae to submit the rest before mid-July, but I'm no sure about the follow thru with all the alumnae that have agreed to submit one. I recognize that it might still be early in the process, but does she have to have one for every chapter in order to be competitive? My daughter is smart (near 4.0), high SAT's, involved in varsity athletics and extracurricular clubs, honor societies, etc...just like every incoming freshman. We are from a small town in GA and not many females from the area join sororities at UGA so getting local recommendations of individuals that actually know my daughter has been challenging...

I'm guessing she will have recs for 50-75% of the chapters...I want to trust the process, but also have a good idea of how the process works and I know how RFM works...With 1,500-1,600 women anticipated to be going thru recruitment this fall and a good number of them being legacies, I just want her to get a fair shake with all the chapters and not just be an automatic release because no one knows her and no pending rec to vouch for her.

Suggestions or recommendations?

Yes, she needs them for all the groups. They could have attended any college. Have you asked every female you know who might have gone to college or have a relative who went to college? Have you asked each person who agreed to write one if they know anyone in the groups you still need? Greek women know other Greek women. Have you checked for alum groups in your area for the groups you need? Have you asked everyone at work, church, the little league park, her teachers, HS counselor, employers, neighbors, parents of her friends, your friends? Networking is your best shot.

You can also contact the Atlanta Alumnae Panhellenic after you have exhausted your personal network. They have info on their website about recs and contact info for many local sorority alumnae groups. This may help you fill in any gaps. But I echo everything said above. Most PNMs will have a rec for every house. Don't wait too long as these need to be submitted by late July and many folks are on vacation during the summer.

another suggestion

WeaverD, another thing my daughter and I did was a google search of the sororities facebook pages to see if any of our friends liked the page and therefore were members of that sorority or knew someone who was. For example, we would google search "alpha chi omega facebook" and see if any friends liked that page. Then we would search school specific like "delta gamma uga facebook" and see if any of our friends followed that page. Then we would search other schools where most of the graduates in our area would go to college such as "Georgia tech alpha gamma delta faceboook", and "Georgia southern chi omega facebook". Do this for all 18 sororities that are at UGA and I bet you will find something. We were able to secure 3 recs by doing this. Good Luck!
