Just FYI. Quota was 64. 53 Underclassman, 11 Upperclassman. There were many chapters that took quota additions.

Observations from a guys point of view; I did not realize how exhausting this was until my daughter went through rush. When I met my wife she was already in graduate school and I never really noticed, when I was was in school. My daughter must have walked 15 miles this last week, she's excited but tired.
Second I do feel badly for the girls that dropped or got released, it's got to hurt.
Third I think being in a sorority is great, on a campus with 50,000 students its good to have a place to go to. Greeklife really is about the little things, having someone to study with, intermurals, watching TV at the house etc. Students are on campus to study, my daughter is in honors as well (shamelss plug), remember these girls are 18, maybe 19, its not all about being slaves to the grind that will happen soon enough. I hope everyone's daughter,or son for that matter has a happy smart and safe year.

Just my two cents.
Yea! I love it when dad;s come on here! great post and congrats to your daughter and your wife on adpi!!
