Auburn Recruitment

Auburn's sorority recruitment is a short time away. Does anyone have an idea about the number of women who have filled out registration forms?

I was curious to see if the economic situation will impact numbers of pnms in a significant way at a southern university with a strong sorority system.

Last I heard (last week), just over 1000. Could be around 1100-1200 - I think that's about the same number as last year.

Oh snap.

When Auburn starts, I feel like the recruitment season "kicks off" for us here on GC. Like "opening day" if you will, lol.

Best of luck Auburn ladies.

And get ready recruitment mods, lol.

This year Auburn's recruitment is going to be extra special because all of the NPC sororities have moved into their fabulous new chapter rooms. I have seen several and let me tell you, they are stunning! The whole village where they are located is stunning but what the chapters have done with their rooms is amazing. The PNM's are awfully lucky to be able to see each and every one! One of the really neat features of the chapter rooms is that they all have direct access from outside, no more going through a lobby and down a flight of stairs. The entrances look as beautiful as those of the best sorority houses anywhere! Another feature that is great is that some of the chapter rooms have their own, dedicated stairway to the suite style dorm rooms the floor above. The suites feature a living room, kitchenete, up to 4 bedroms and two bathrooms. It's as good, or even better, than living in a house. I have to say, I am so excited about this because Auburn has a very large and very strong Greek system which has supported each and every sorority on campus. It is about time that Panhellenic is rewarded for running such a great system. This will be the first time in a very long time that sisters and PNM's will be able to comfortably fit into a chapter room during rush. If I get a chance to take some pictures I will.

Yee-haw! Do you know how many women are registered for Ok State? Hope they have a great time. There are some wonderful chapters at OSU with the oldest ones celebrating their 90th year on campus this year... KD's Nu chapter, Theta's Beta Zeta chapter and Phi Phi's Oklahoma Beta are all turning 90 this year.

Re: Auburn. The suites sound wonderful. Hope we hear some happy ending recruitment stories this season. The Auburn KD chapter received the highest chapter award at national convention in June, so I'm sure they are going into recruitment with a lot of energy.

The KD chapter room is beautiful, they did a wonderful job with it. I will be back on the Plains this weekend and will take some pictures for you all to see. Another Auburn tradition that is changing this year is that Bids will not be handed out at the amphitheater but will be moved to a location closer to the new village. Previously, the bids arrived at the amphitheater via a parade of trucks full of cheering Panhellenic women who distribute the bids to the Rho Chi's. I'm hoping that they still are able to keep this tradition inthe new location.

The new sorority dorms at Auburn are fab. I was there last weekend and going again this weekend. All the girls are so proud of them, they were sending out pics even before the rooms were fully finished lol.
