Wow - 2500 pnms. It is hard to wrap your mind around what it takes to survive, especially the early cuts. Would love to see the statistics, but information this year on any of the recruitments is sparse.

A lot of PNMs this year are making TikTok videos about their recruitment experiences. These kids today!

One HUGE point of misinformation in this article states, "Sorority rush is flashy, expensive, over-the-top and enthusiastic on purpose..."

Research, people. That old 'journalist' needs to rise above their old sorority RUSH misconceptions!

Yea, I don't think this site is known for its hard-hitting journalism...

The people reacting to all this on Tik Tok are half who have never heard of greek life and are straight up fascinated, then those who went through recruitment years ago saying "Man if I walked in with what I was wearing I never would have made it!" It's humorous.

Oh how I am glad we did not have TikTok back when the dinosaurs roamed the Earth.

The thing is, there are numerous vloggers in Bama sororities on youtube, and they "name" what they are wearing, I guess, in the hopes that they will get something for promoting the brands they are naming. I don't know if these PNMs are just copying those members, or they are that savvy that they are also hoping for some kick back for the brands they are promoting. Either way, good luck girls, and thanks for the entertainment.
