Yes she would.

I still hate when the unhoused chapters get less nms though. DPhiE got 14?! That makes me so upset. How can that still happen?

This is true everywhere, not just IU...Just because the girls are guaranteed to receive a bid that doesn't mean they will accept it. You can't force someone to be a member of a chapter. That's why knowing your audience and thinking outside the box (pledging upperclassmen, having open rush events throughout the year) is so important.

DPhiE got 16 actually. And no, we have no plans to build a house. ASA and TPA did just fine during formal recruitment. I don't know why we aren't doing so well, but time will tell.

If the rest of the chapter is as sweet and funny as the DPhiE Rho Gammas that I met during recruitment, then I have no doubt the chapter will be okay.

In my opinion, since they were the third chapter that came on campus in fairly quick succession, many of the upper classmen that might have been interested in greek life had already joined one of the other two groups, which put them at a bit of a disadvantage. But they have an amazing sisterhood and are definitely welcoming so I hope that they have a successful informal recruitment.

Fingers crossed We had the same issue last spring...it's disheartening for sure, but the girls seem to be working hard. And it doesn't hurt when the International President helps with your chapter

How have they done with informal recruitment? It may well be the case that formal recruitment is not one of their strengths, but they absolutely shine at informal (just like some PNMs do).

Found this info on another site. (one we are not to talk about)Please confirm if this is accurate. Missing Alpha Phi #


Quota was set at 55 originally but went down to 54 after SO many PNMs dropped out of recruitment.

1194 PNMs ACCEPTED their bids. I do not know how many were extended bids, but chose to reject them. With about 1700 PNMs registered for recruitment, this is roughly a 70% placement rate (which could have been higher if so many PNMs did not drop out of rush/had accepted the bids extended to them)

Alpha Chi Omega 55
Alpha Delta Pi 57
Alpha Epsilon Phi 54
Alpha Gamma Delta 62
Alpha Omicron Pi 59
Alpha Sigma Alpha 54
Alpha Xi Delta 57
