I’ve had Kendra Scott jewelry since 2016. Does this make me a trend-setter?
I started wearing my earrings and bracelet to events at the UCLA Chi O house and now everyone wears Kendra Scott.

Can’t believe the article didn’t include Rustic Cuff bracelets (or Alex & Ani). Rustic Cuff actually makes several styles for almost all NPC groups, plus a few multicultural and service groups (some are on sale right now, in case anyone is looking for a New Member gift). Both Rustic Cuff and Alex & Ani makes bracelets with university charms/logos.

This article was in today's New York Times:

#BamaRush Explained

A number of PNMs have been posting TikTok videos showing what outfits they were wearing each day. "Frequently cited brands include a mix of fast-fashion and designer labels: Michael Kors, Shein, Steve Madden, Kendra Scott, LoveShackFancy and Hello Molly."

According to the article, "2,501 women attended Open House events this year, and 2,307 of them ended up with a bid".

My favorite line from the article came at the end: "Bama Rush may be over, but Ole Miss Rush is just getting started." (Though I understand Ole Miss recruitment is already well underway.)

I read the article and watched the videos. Cringe-worthy and shallow. I can't unsee what I saw.

I do not know what quota was, but AOII has 141 New Members.

Does anyone know the schedule for Sigma Kappa to build a new house? Are they building on their current site? Maybe when they finish building and it if the numbers stay this strong, Alpha Xi Delta can re-colonize...

Phi Mu got 135!

Sigma Kappa said they were going to build a house within the next 3-5 years from when they colonized, and after that, who knows.

Miss Pennsylvania's Outstanding Teen, Jaylen Baron, joined Phi Mu! When I heard she was going to Alabama, I wondered if she would go through recruitment. So fun to see her happy bid day photos!

I fell down the rabbit hole for about two hours which apparently is nothing in comparison to people who’ve been following the entire rush period.

Fascinating and cringe worthy.

One of the things I have learned? Apparently there should be Justice for McKenzie! Another thing I learned? The parodies were pretty funny. A third thing I realized, People have a strange fascination with southern accents.

Nope, can’t unsee this either. Lol

I would love to see AXiD regain our SEC chapters.
