Question Can I get a roll-call for NPC's using recruitment videos during formal recruitment?

I'd like to get an unofficial tally of all the NPC systems that are using recruitment videos as part of formal recruitment. Just chime in with your school's name! Thanks!

Mercer University does on the first night of recruitment. They are always a big hit!

We're just starting to use them at UBC (in vancouver) i know for sure that at least one other group is doing them, but i think most of the 8 groups will be using them. We have until very recently done traditional slideshows, but myself and my recruitment advisor were really inspired by that theta video that there was a thread about somewhere, dont have the link but it was up pretty recently. ours will only be about 8 or 9 mins tho, because we want to show it on second day, and parties are only half an hour long.

I dont know if this counts lol but when I was in with Recruitment, Recruitment Assistant, we made a recruitment video, but we showed it to our active members as a way to show them the dos and donts of recruitment. It was a funny yet educational video.

My chapter at EKU uses two videos--one on philanthropy day/night to give better information about what CASA is and does and then a great majority of Theta chapters(my chapter included) uses a video during preference.

As best as I can remember and as far as I know, no other chapter on EKU's campus uses videos during their recruitment parties.

ETA: My chapter also put together a slide show type of deal on a video of us at different events and sisterhoods and what nots that we played during COB and Spring Recruitment parties. But we arent allowed I dont think to show that during Formal Recruitment (I'll find out this year when I go and observe with the other advisors).

I believe it's an option for 3rd parties here @ Kent.

My chapter uses a video slideshow for skit night.

Our Panhellenic hires people from our student television station to tape parts of recruitment week (basically girls waiting, their intro to greek life, etc) and shows it right before they get your bids. They always end it with "Your sisters are waiting for you." It's very emotional and effective.

Michigan State did something like this last year. I don't know if they are going to continue with it this coming fall during Formal recruitment, but I think they should. It shows a bit more of what the houses are about with the videos that we make throughout the year. The PNM's can see what we do together rather than us just tell them.

The sororities at Stanford use them, for the past few years we have done an action adventure video called Chi O's Angels. I think you can guess the plot.

Well, at W&L we use both. We have a skit night and then use videos on a separate night (Sisterhood Night).
