Is anyone else's rush experience like ....

I go to a commuter school, and there are no sorority houses. My school is in the North East. There was one day where all the greek sororites and frats were outside in our quad but thats been it, now they all have individual rush meetings and mixers etc. But they are all at the same time, like today there were 3 sororities rush meetings at the same time, so how am I suppose to get to know all the sororities if there events are all at the same time.

so I did find I fit in well with the sorority I choose to go to today but...

They are very informal which is ok with me, but after reading the boards here its not what I expected at all. We have national sororities, but the one I choose to go to is a Regional (only 6 schools). There were about maybe 8 girls there, out of the 26 that are active, and they were about 10 minutes late to the meeting spot on campus. They talked about guys and the frats and how its a good way to meet guys. They talked about drinking, they even asked if we drank ( by show of hands), and who is of age. I heard the words wasted, and a story of falling in a pool, etc. I heard two of the sisters swear one must have about 10 times in conversation.One girl thats a member dropped out of school but is still a member (How does that work?) Now from reading the boards I just thought that they would leave all that out, and was preparing myself to be all proper, which I was anyway. I really like the girls I was just a little surprised, but maybe its b/c its NYC so idk.
Has anyone else experienced this type of rush?

Can you go any other sororities party? I don't know, but for reading this would make me think twice about joining...For me I would try to look into the other groups before I made a seious choice about joining this group.
Good Luck!!!!!

I know where she is at (though I'm not saying) and sadly to many of the groups at this campus is like this. I would love to get the chance to be Greek Advisor there, because the current one doesn't really do much, at least not what he should be doing IMO.

Stick to a true national. There are benefits, guidelines etc with an NPC/NPHC group vs. a group that doesn't have a lot of alumnae support.

BB--
If it were me--I would run, fast. Ok--maybe that is hasty, but in the long run, I do not think a group that presents itself this way is going to attract women that will sustain the chapter. I would at least check out the other groups on campus to see if there is a better fit.

Good luck!!
