All I can say since I'm a guy and its actually going to be my first year at OU as well is, good luck and have a great year. Hopefully some other GCers from OU can help with more specifics for sorority rush.

OUKate is an Alpha Gam at the University of Oklahoma. She gave me some advice for my cousins who are attending. I know she mentioned that recs were important at OU. So you should probably get as many out as possible & soon. Other than that, relax, keep an open mind, and have a great time. OU is great!
Good Luck!

Rush at OU is fun. Some of the houses are really hardcore, while otheres are laid back. Its kind of scary at first, but after the first rush party you attend, you will begin to get use to all the loud bouncing, and clapping. All the houses are spread out into North greek adn South greek, make sure you bring a pair of comfortable shoes like tennis shoes or flips flops. After day one you may have a party at the farest south house in South greek and then have to go to the farest north house in north greek. Its not fun running in heels. . I The really big advice I can give you is that during rush you will be hearing all sorts of reputations and rumors about every house. Some good and some bad. Dont let all the girls that you just met sway your decision on what house you want. You may like a small house where you can know all of your sisters, or a big one where you have your clique of friends that all share the ame secrets, whatever it is go into it with an open mind. Let your heart take you where you want to go. If you have an specific questions I will be happy to answer them.. Maybe I will see you during rush. Good Luck!

I am a DG alumn from OU. I agree with everything Kelster said. She described OU rush exactly as I remembered it. I just wanted to say good luck, and I hope you enjoy rushing!

My little brother's girlfriend was a Chi-O at Furman who transferred to OU and affiliated there last semester. I'm an alum of UCO and can't tell you a whole lot about recruitment at OU. I can say that the Greek system up there is huge! The sororities are all excellent organizations. Good luck!

One of my sisters went to grad school at Oklahoma and advised their Kappa chapter. They're all incredibly hospitable-- when she went down to audition, they invited her to stay at the house for a whole week-- and sweet. She was their NM advisor, and she told me that their NM class is usually around 90 girls. Good luck!

One of the women on our alumnae chapter Exec Board graduated from there and I know a couple of years ago she was talking about how they needed another house on campus because of quota being around 90.

I met the ZTA recruitment chair at our leadership conference a few weeks ago, she was great!


Good luck in recruitment, I'm sure you would be an asset to any of the chapters!

Me too Heather, and I would guess the dues are just a tad-bit higher than ours were LOL.

I think AOPi's and ZTA's are the coolest looking. My question though as a silly Northerner - do you really get that much snow in Oklahoma?
