Going through Panhellenic sorority recruitment this year? Introduce yourself here :)

I thought this thread was needed (and would keep people from mistakenly posting in Senusret I's thread lol)

So if you're a PNM going through recruitment this fall or spring, introduce yourself and tell us a little something about you (like your year in school, or what school you'll be attending--if you want to share that, or something like that).

Ex: I'm SuzieQ21, I'm a junior, and I'm rushing this fall at LSU.

or if you don't want to share your school:

Hi I'm SuzieQ21, I'm a junior and I'm rushing at a very large SEC school (or a large school in the South).

To help you out a little bit, there's a search tool you can use to look for threads about your school.

There are also several really helpful stickies in the Recruitment and Sorority Recruitment forums. They answer a lot of really common recruitment questions.

Welcome and happy posting,
Violet.

Hey all!
I came across this AFTER I posted my own intro thread (oops!) but I don't mine introducing myself twice

my name is sweet_tea88 and I'm interested in rushing this Fall at a school in the south I'm somewhat skeptical about rush since I am a minority and NPC sororities are "historically white" and I don't know how they will respond to me. I'd like to talk to the few members they DID have but I believe the one girl graduated already :-/ *sigh*

I'm pretty sure that they don't need to post in the other thread in order to unlock all the others... this one should do. New GreekChat members just need to post in the Introductions Forum.

Hey everyone, I'm Lizzie and I'm going to be rushing this fall at UNC. If anyone has any advice or experience with the UNC system, please let me know! Also, how competitive is rush at UNC and is it true that all PNMs are guaranteed a bid?

Hi Lizzie, if you do a search for "Chapel Hill" several threads should come up. Here's your one freebie search thread, lol.

http://www.greekchat.com/gcforums/sh...ht=Chapel+Hill

And no. No PNM is really guaranteed a bid. There are some schools who may say that if a PNM attends round and ranks all of her choices, she will get a bid from one of those. But I am unsure if UNC does that. Even then, you are not guaranteed to get to that point in recruitment.

Violet, thanks for the tip, I've spent a little too much time looking through UNC threads today (I just discovered this site), but thanks for the suggestion!

Hi, I'm Lauren. I'll be a sophmore transfer PNM at a school in Virginia this year. I've searched through forums but can't find much specific information regarding my university. Is there a "comprehensive" list of Va schools that require recs? My school is not one of the big schools like RC, W&M, or UVA, which I know require recs.

I wouldn't worry about being a minority, if a org likes you for who you are then they will invite you back. If they are so worried about the outside appearance, ask yourself if you want to belong to that organization. My chapter has a good amount of "minorities" but they are all so involved, and such beautiful women! I'm proud to call them *my* sisters.

Researching the D9 but only interested in rushing NPC sororities? Hmmm.

I went to George Mason - PM me on here or IM me at SthrnZeta if I can help you Also, PM Gusteau, he's a current student at George Mason so he would have some more current info since I graduated in 2004. Good luck!

I'm actually headed to Virginia Commonwealth University in the fall. If it's not appropriate for me to reveal this, let me know!

I'm transferring from a school where going greek is the be-all end-all and you'll never get a bid if you don't have recs. I was wondering if anyone had any experience at all with VCU... and if so, would you be willing to help me?

Even if your mom hasn't so much as read her sorority's magazine since she graduated, you'd think this would come up when you announced that you were going to rush.

i've seen it mentioned on here more than once, that mom "forgot" to tell her daughter that she was a member of xyz. maybe mom did not want daughter to get involved with greek life, but was taking a more passive approach.
