What campus gets the award for the most chapters pledging quota?

Just curious if anyone knows! I'm pretty sure that Ole Miss gets the award for the largest quota at 90.

I believe last year University of Southern Calif had all 9 chapters pledging quota of about 60, and SDSU all 7 pledging quota of 68ish. I'll take a stab that Cal State Long Beach may also have had all 7 pledging quota of 43 or so?

(my numbers may not be entirely accurate. feel free to correct me if you know more!)

Love to see College Panhellenics get recognized for truly outstanding recruitment efforts!

I know in Fall 2006, NC State had 5 chapters match to quota, while the other two CRed to quota. Their success and continued interest is probably why they have added DG in 2002, Pi Phi in 2004, are adding Tri Delta this fall, and will possibly add KD in the next few years depending on the continued success of the Panhellenic chapters.

Violet,
According to the campus newspaper chapter quota was 56. All made quota. Some chapters had quota additions. The highest number made was 62. This year there will be 10 chapters who will participate in recruitment at Southern California.

All sororities at Kansas and Kansas State made quota this past fall.

Great work Kansas NPC ladies!

thank you So Cal Girl. sorry Aztecs you get downgraded to honorable mention. according to my source one is reorganizing and another may not have fully participated? that may be totally incorrect but kindly pardon my error.

see disclaimer above... my only source is jabbering with some of the students I know that attend those schools!

Can someone explain what quota is in relationship to a fraternity or sorority?

Well, it's confusing. We had 9 NPCs and one affiliated local. One NPC closed bringing it to 8 NPC, 1 local. Then, the local got chartered as an NPC - 9 NPCs. Then, shortly after, another NPC closed. Back to 8 NPCs. So, it's been between 8-10 depending on how you want to count the local.

Alpha Epsilon Phi (the local which went NPC) is the one which bajazd's friend probably said didn't "fully participate" (probably because they had only chartered a few months before hand). Because they advertise themselves as a culturally-based Jewish-interest sorority, they, their national, and the Greek Life Office are not at all worried about whether or not they get quota. I believe they are fully participating in formal recruitment next month. They are a great group of girls. Their Chapter Adviser is one of my colleagues and she just won Chapter Adviser of the Year last spring.

It is the number of new members that each chapter is allowed to take which is based on the number who are going through recruitment. Each campus decides how they are going to set quota. It used to be common to take the number of PNMs who signed up for recruitment and divide by the number of chapters. That didn't end up being very fair though because some of those women would drop out. Quota is generally set further down the process now and sometimes is based on how many signed bid cards. So, if there were a 200 PNMs who signed bid cards and 10 sororities, quota would be 10. Each chapter could take 20 PNMs.

However, there is another number, called Total, which complicates things. Total is a maximum chapter size, essentially, that is set by the College Panhellenic. If Total is 100 and a chapter reaches or exceeds that number when they take Quota, then they are done recruiting! However, if they are below Total, they can do Continuous Open Recruitment (COR) until they reach Total. Chapters can exceed Total by taking Quota, but then they can't take any more women.

The system is designed to try to keep the sororities about the same size with the philosophy that if all the chapters are strong, then the Panhellenic system is strong. If two chapters had 200 members, 5 had around 100 and the other 3 had 50 or so, things wouldn't be equitable. Despite these heroic attempts to keep chapters around the same size, some chapters still struggle with numbers though.

So...chapters can only exceed quota if they are under total...but, they can exceed total by pledging to quota?
