Those dates are correct. I have the email Greek Life sent out in early January.
Excerpt from email:
Recruitment will be held from Sunday, September 16 Sunday, September 23, 2012. Convocation will be on Sunday, September 16 and rounds will begin on Wednesday, September 19. Bid Day will be on Sunday, September 23.

I don't think it will change, especially since it is pretty much based on the football schedule.

Updated original post to include the information. Please let me know of any additions and/or edits and I'll make them happen to that post. MP

I wonder where the land is that OM is supposedly going to make available. Could it possibly be either the former ZTA or ADPi house? Seems as they were both on sorority row and are now converted to other university use. I suspect that any location other than Sorority Row or Rebel Drive would be a turn-off to PNMs. I've seen other campuses where sorority houses are scattered about, but not at OM. But, I haven't been there in years and don't know what may be available nearby.

If this is happening soon, I think we can rule out AXO as they are going to have their hands (and all their other appendages) full with expansion at Arkansas.

Personally, I could see and would like to see both Alpha Gamma Delta and Delta Zeta pursue Ole Miss. Delta Zeta would be a recolonization (present at Ole Miss from 1928-1953). Alpha Delta Pi is recolonizing at Mississippi State University in 2013 so I do not think they would pursue it. Also, they have only been off campus for 15 years at Ole Miss.

The article mentioned the University providing land for up to THREE houses. Will Ole Miss be open to multiple chapters?

they might be watching what happens at Arkansas. At this point I would think it's too late to do a colony already this fall, so they could choose 2 or 3 stacked sororities, but bundle them (for the spring or fall 2013?) if it goes well at Arkansas. That's one of those things we just aren't going to know until we've seen it in real life. But they're definitely another school that could handle multiple expansions.

Ole Miss is using the ZTA house for offices. I don't know if ZTA sold it to them or if they are leasing it. OleMissGlitter may know.

In a prior thread discussing Ole Miss expansion, OMG stated that the University bought both the ADPi (Honors College) and ZTA (Lenoir Hall) houses.

Compare those to:
Alpha Omicron Pi
Delta Gamma
Delta Delta Delta
Kappa Alpha Theta
Kappa Delta
Kappa Kappa Gamma
Pi Beta Phi
Phi Mu
Chi Omega

Some of these pictures are slightly outdated - I know several houses have been recently renovated/enlarged.

Thought this was interesting:

The former ZTA house is home base for the nutrition/food-service program and has an on-site student-run restaurant, Lenoir Dining.

Greek Life has indicated that the colony efforts are expected to begin after FR concludes this coming Fall. Property has been located which would accommodate three new Chapter facilities.

Wow! After formal recruitment this fall? I suppose presentations are going to happen before the end of the school year with decisions being made rather quickly. I wonder if Ole Miss is planning on bringing more than 1 sorority to campus specifically if they are naming 3 locations where housing could be built? I'm really interested in seeing what develops. Good luck to all NPC groups that choose to submit packets!
