I know that a lot of Hispanics use Jesus in first names, and that a lot of Southerners have double names, but have never heard Mary and Jesus together in an American name. That was so rude of Dove to make that comment!

I regularly volunteer at a camp staffed by collegiate women in varying chapters at SEC schools. I worked with a Mary Carol, Mary Grace, Mary Kate, and Mary Hartman (Mary + Mother's Maiden Name is a thing.)

At least Mary Hartman (and her peers) are too young to understand why that could be amusing.

:-) I was thinking the same thing when I saw AGD still on all their lists.

I was thinking maybe the carnation would add a Sigma Kappa, but I feel like the. Action generally ends up in older more established chapters ����*♀️

From what I've heard, Sigma Kappa is making harsh cuts and a lot of girls were expecting to go in and have them as a "back up", but they know how to work recruitment well and theyre doing a beautiful job.
Any updates on your girls for Sisterhood rounds?

Holy cow, those are some impressive GPAs.

And I'm blown away by the chapter sizes. As y'all know, I went to school in the Northeast, at a time when total was 80 and being cut across the board after open houses was unheard of unless you were a complete b*tch (or had a really low GPA, but women with low GPAs tended to self-select out and pledge the library instead of rushing). The SEC is a whole different ball game, recruitment-wise.
