Arkansas Recruitment

Hi!
My little sister is going to attend University of Arkansas this fall and will be going through recruitment. I am a Zeta Tau Alpha Alumnae so am familiar with recruitment at the University I attended but would love to learn more about the University of Arkansas recruitment process. Any information is appreciated!

Thanks,
Arksis

No, you are an [B]alumna[B], not alumnae. That's plural and I am assuming there is only one of you.

I know I read some stories about Arkansas recruitment in the Recruitment Stories section. You might want to look around in those threads and see what you can find.

wavycutchip and gee ess are both involved at Arkansas. I used to be an advisor there. Arkansas is a very tough recruitment. Not a lot of chapters and a whole lot of PNMs. However, 2 NPCs are colonizing this fall to help alleviate the overcrowding. All the chapters are very large and outstanding - many are award-winning in their respective national/international organizations. Like everywhere else in the SEC - she will need recs and an open mind.

Thanks maybe I should have been more clear... I have already googled this information I'm looking for more detailed information other than what google and the university site provides. But thanks for the link.

You can use google to search greekchat you just need to use the advance search option and put www.greekchat.com as the domain. Sometimes I find that more helpful because you can exclude some words and filter by date.

University of Arkansas
Fayetteville, AR
August 14-20 and 27-28, 2011
Quota=131
Campus Total=130
Quota last year=101
Registered PNMs=1,200
******************
Chi Omega Psi (Founding Chaper) 1895
Zeta Tau Alpha Epsilon 1903-1938/1947 (137)
Pi Beta Phi Arkansas Alpha 1909
Delta Delta Delta Delta Iota 1913 (137)
Phi Mu Alpha Beta 1923-1933/1978-1995 Colony Fall 2012
Kappa Kappa Gamma Gamma Nu 1925 (134)
Delta Gamma Alpha Omega 1930-1992
Alpha Delta Pi Delta Delta 1957 (115)
Alpha Chi Omega Delta Rho 1961-1977 Colony Fall 2012
Kappa Alpha Theta Delta Nu 1966-1989

Kappa Delta Zeta Gamma 1989 (136)
Alpha Omicron Pi Xi Omicron 2007 (137)

As you can see, quota last year was 131. Yes, 131. So, most chapters hover near 300 members. I would think most PNMs should be able to find a niche in any chapter of such a size. Unfortunately, many PNMs get caught up in tent talk and drop out if they don't get invites from certain chapters. However, I believe that the "worst" chapter at Arkansas would stand up well against power chapters at many other schools. Greek life is very big at UA, so hopefully your sister will give all the chapters a good look. She will need recs to every chapter.

Can you imagine roll call? An hour later "I call this meeting to order..."
