So, my son will be a freshman at the university where I'm a professor. I was talking to our fraternity/sorority coordinator about sorority business and he told me that every year is different, but this year's IFC exec is really organized and they've planned a couple coordinated rush events.

Anxiety level when daughter went through recruitment: 8 out of 10
Anxiety level while son is preparing to rush: 2 out of 10 (this may be an overestimation)

Updating as I've had some recent additions to the Queen City Rec Crew!

4 Alabama
3 South Carolina
2 Tennessee
1 Georgia
1 Chapel Hill
1 Ole Miss

I can't wait to see what happens! Alabama and Georgia in process, SC and TN start Thursday, Chapel Hill to follow, and then will have to wait a while for Ole Miss....

What's the opinion on writing recs for girls you don't personally know? I know it would be preferred if we did, but at so many campuses the recs are a requirement and I can't see how it's feasible that every girl rushing at those campuses personally knows a member from every NPC group.
I do this after talking with the girl and then talking to a reliable source who can vouch for the young woman and the type of girl she is and her character. Teachers and guidance counselors will tell you the real deal. Once I have all the basic information on the woman and talk to her, then I begin my 'research'. Getting additional details from a trusted source also helps me write a better rec for her too!

I've done the same PKTKKG because sometimes you will not have the opportunity to be personally acquainted with every PNM.

Looks like LSU has had to postpone the beginning of recruitment because of the flooding that is currently happening.Today would have been move in day for pmn's and icewaters would have started on Sunday with bid day on Saturday. As of now icewaters will all be on Tuesday and bid day will be Sunday. Of course this could all change again. The rain is still coming down and flooding is happening all over the state.
