Anxious about waiting

Hi everyone!
I am waiting on pins and needles to see if my daughter will be my sister! I am a AOII Alumnae from USC(Nu Lambda), and my daughter is going through Formal Recruitment at Appalachian State University. I've been reading some of the posts here, while I wait, and it brought back fond memories!
I'll let you know what happens...AOII or Phi Mu...

Good luck to her (and you!). No secret that I hope she becomes y(our) sister soon! But Phi Mu is also a wonderful organization! That would just mean more colors and mascots to shop for, right? I can't imagine what you are going through right now. I hope someday, my daughter will even want to experience Greek life! Hang in there!!

I completely agree about Phi Mu! She started her freshman year at AppState last spring, and her roommate was a Phi Mu! (Very sweet girl!) Whichever way it goes is going to be perfect for her!
On the practical end, we have 3 more daughters who may rush in the near and distant future, and it would sure help to be able to recycle some stuff!!!
I just didn't realize I would be the one with butterflies in my stomach!

Here we are…11 years later when my oldest daughter went through Recruitment at AppState and pledged AOII.
(I forgot my password as MamaRubyRose, so I registered again as Macanoble)
Now my youngest daughter is rushing at NC STATE. It was a last minute decision. No AOII chapter there, but she is having the time of her life! She made the last minute decision to rush, just for the experience of rushing, but now she is hoping to pledge. I am so excited for her! Recruitment began Friday 10 houses GET INVOLVED theme. Yesterday was the Philanthropy round, MAKE A DIFFERENCE, 8 houses max. She went to all 8! I never saw that coming! Without pressure on her, my older daughter and I are anxiously waiting to find out how many houses she goes back to this afternoon for the LIVE AND LEARN round, which is the academics/sisterhood/house tour round.

So excited for her!

On the original topic…I recently met a mom AOPi from my college who now has two of her daughters as sisters- actives in her same chapter. I think that is so neat.

Oh that's great! Welcome back!

It looks like there are 12 chapters at NC State. One is a sorority for STEM majors. The other 11 are NPC chapters. You said she started with 10 chapters on the first day. In looking at one of our other threads here, Alpha Xi Delta apparently closed in 1989, but NC State Panhellenic has them on their website. I see from their advertisements that AXiD is recolonizing this fall!

Yes! AXiD is recolonizing this fall! If your daughter doesn't find her home during Formal Recruitment, please tell her to check out AXID!!
