Welp, UNC abruptly stops all in-person classes after about 130 students tested positive for COVID-19 in just one week.

This sort of thing is why I’m just going with 100% online for graduate school...

Arkansas

My niece is going through recruitment at Arkansas. She’s been so impressed by all of the chapters and the zoom parties - she said it feels like she’s in the house! Bravo to them and all of their planning to make it such a good experience for these PNMs.

Here’s how IU is going to do recruitment this spring. It’s going to be interesting to see how it goes.

Is it true that a lot of chapters won't have any socials this fall? And that only live-ins can be in the house on some campuses?

Probably depends on the schools (and probably states) rules and regulations. My state has limitations on how many people can be in a room together for events. Most of colleges in my area will not be having any on campus social events this semester.

I know that some houses have a number limit as to how many people can be there and obviously priority is to those living in the house. They will probably do a lot of sign ups and schedules for out of house girls so that they can track properly if there are any issues..

Chapters better get comfortable socializing on Zoom for now. It’s not ideal, but it’s possible.

DD at UK

My DD is going through recruitment at UK right now. All virtual. She’s having a great experience so far. Sisterhood round of 6 parties is Friday & Saturday, Preference on Sunday and Bid Day on Monday. Maybe the way of the future! I was a campus Greek advisor a long time ago, back when we did rush all by hand without computers. I’m relieved she’s having a good experience. Kentucky has done an excellent job overall in my opinion. I feel that kids these days communicate so much online that this situation isn’t as abnormal to them as it is to us.

I am hoping to talk to her soon. I will definately ask about the how huge the new member classes are this year! I have visited this campus and the Sorority Village is lovely, but I don't see how they could expand it.
