hi-
I am currently a sophomore, looking to pledge a sorority this spring. However, I know nothing about any sororities that participate in spring rush, and how to go about getting involved. Any help would be appreciated.
thanks

Your best bet is to start with the office of greek life ...

here's the link to the Penn State Panhellenic web site ... even though it refers to
fall 2007 recruitment .. these are the contact you'd need to make..

http://php.scripts.psu.edu/clubs/up/...ecruitment.php

good luck!!

Do you go to Pennsylvania State University - the main campus or the other campuses? If you go to the main campus, there are 20 NPC sororities there out of the total 26 making Greek Life pretty big at your university. I would suggest contacting those in charge of Greek Life at your school. Do a search at your school's website and read about some information about sororities and get in touch with someone in charge of recruitment, I am sure they would be able to inform you of more about recruitment in the springtime.

I go to the main campus, and I tried to contact the people listed on the website, but have yet to recieve any response. (It's been a decent amount of time). I hope it works out, but I am beginning to think it won't.

Well then walk into the Greek Life office at the Hub (is that still what they call it?) and ask about it. That's what the folks in that office are there for...

They might be in a "silence" time when sorority memebers are not allowed to communicate with rushees. Don't take it personally. Watch for signs about rush and postings on the Greeklife website.

I agree, but don't give up on hearing from them as well because if you emailed them after school was on holiday break and haven't heard back from them, it may be because they haven't or won't check their emails until they get back from break. I don't know, just a thought. But yes, go into the office for Greek Life and inquire in person.

Actually, since Penn State has formal rush in the fall and only groups doing informal will be holding events in the spring, it's more likely you're running into communication gaps between old and new officers at both the chapter and panhellenic levels if elections just took place at the end of last semester. And it was holiday break. Again, walk into the GLO in person and talk to the folks there to see if they have info. on the groups holding spring events, they may be starting in the next few weeks.

None of us necessarily know that.

But you know who does? The staff in the Greek Life Office.
