A Sweet Valley Bama Recruitment Story

As promised, here is my epic Sweet Valley recruitment thread. Sorry it has been so long coming... but I try to only do one thread at a time. My Bama rec girl is having a blast in her new home, so a happy ending means another happy thread!

If you're asking what Sweet Valley is or have somehow never read the books, you probably will hate this thread at least a little bit. Yay Sweet Valley!

There are 17 Panhellenic sororities at Alabama.
Alpha Chi Omega
Alpha Delta Pi
Alpha Gamma Delta
Alpha Omicron Pi
Alpha Phi
Chi Omega
Delta Delta Delta
Delta Gamma
Delta Zeta
Gamma Phi Beta
Kappa Alpha Theta
Kappa Delta
Kappa Kappa Gamma
Phi Mu
Pi Beta Phi
Sigma Delta Tau* - Does not participate in formal recruitment
Zeta Tau Alpha

For this thread, we will call the 16 houses participating in formal recruitment:
Steven Wakefield
Todd Wilkins
Enid Rollins
Winston Egbert
Lila Fowler
Bruce Patman
Caroline Pearce
Maria Slater
Cara Walker
Aaron Dallas
Ned Wakefield
Alice Wakefield
Olivia Davidson
Ken Matthews
Jeannie West
Sandra Bacon

And in this thread's edition of Things I Didn't Decide to Call Chapters:
Sam Woodruff (the guy Elizabeth killed in the drunk driving accident after the Jungle Prom), John Pfeifer (the rapist), Margo the Evil Twin (because... Crazy), Crazy Margo's sister Nora (because... arguably crazier), Annie Whitman (No chapter wants to be "Easy Annie").

Oh, and I didn't use Jessica and Elizabeth as houses because I already used them in my UGA thread.
Fun Fact: Jessica is a Theta in the SVU series.

Place your bets!

I haven't read any of the books, so I'll just root for Gamma Phi, whichever character that turns out to be. Fingers crossed!

Round One

"Regina" arrived on campus very excited to participate in recruitment! An out-of-stater, she was not super familiar many chapters on campus.

After round one, Regina had a few groups of houses:

FAVORITES (Notice that these four are all known as being some of the most gorgeous people in Sweet Valley. Yay, references.)
Aaron Dallas - These girls were so fun! Regina loves it here.
Lila Fowler - These girls were so sweet! Regina got along well with everyone she met.
Bruce Patman - These girls were really laid back and made Regina feel at home.
Ken Matthews - These girls were fun and welcoming! Regina loves this house.

REALLY LIKE, DEFINITELY WANT TO RETURN TO
Maria Slater - Really fun, peppy girls!
Cara Walker - Great conversations
Ned Wakefield - Sweet and welcoming
Jeannie West - Sweet and welcoming
Sandra Bacon - Gorgeous house and very fun!

DIDN'T GET TO KNOW THEM VERY WELL, WOULDN'T MIND RETURNING
Steven Wakefield
Todd Wilkins
Enid Rollins
Winston Egbert
Caroline Pearce
Alice Wakefield
Olivia Davidson

The whirlwind of round one meant that Regina didn't get to know every single house super well, but she enjoyed her time at every house and truly would be happy to return to any of them!

Yeah, the house is called "Theta Alpha Theta" in SVU the first time it's mentioned, but from then on they are just called Theta. Supposedly they are based on Kappa Alpha Theta?

This summer Pascal put out 6 e-serials that take place 2 years after Sweet Valley Confidential. They are awesome. And by awesome I mean in no way of literary merit, but fun.

Ken Matthews
Maria Slater

She was so pleased to see that her top 4 were all on her list! She couldn't wait to get to know all of the chapters better.

Round Two

During round two, Regina again found herself creating ranking groups:

FAVORITES
Aaron Dallas
Lila Fowler
Bruce Patman
Regina loves all of these houses for very similar reasons! After round one, she can see that they are all sweet, fun, and beautiful... they all make her feel very welcome! If she continues visiting all three, it's going to make for a tough choice, but for now she's just hoping to get to return to all three for round three.

AWESOME, DEFINITELY WANTS TO RETURN
Ken Matthews
Maria Slater
Cara Walker
Ned Wakefield
Regina likes all of these houses a lot! They are all sweet, welcoming, and fun! While she doesn't necessarily feel the same spark with them that she feels with Aaron, Lila, and Bruce, she hopes to return to all of them.

STILL DOESN'T FEEL LIKE SHE HAS GOTTEN TO KNOW THEM ALL THAT WELL
Enid Rollins
Caroline Pearce
For round three, PNMs can visit up to eight houses, so Regina needed to put one of these in her top 8 and list the other as her #9. She doesn't really see herself ending up with either, but she also wouldn't mind returning to either... so she decided to put Enid as her #8 and Caroline as her #9.

Round Three Invites

Lucky Regina got seven invites for round three, and they were her top 7! A full schedule would have been eight, but Regina was happy with seven because they were the seven she had been connecting most with up to this point.

Aaron Dallas
Lila Fowler
Bruce Patman
Ken Matthews
Maria Slater
Cara Walker
Ned Wakefield

Round Three

Sorry for the holdup, y'all.

For round three, Regina hoped to get some clarity on her top houses, but all she got was more confusion! Not only did she feel like a frontrunner of the top group still hadn't emerged, but she started to feel more at home at the other chapters she visited, making her feel more and more conflicted about having to rank them at the end of the round.

Sidenote: I don't think PNMs like Regina can appreciate what a wonderful problem it is to have a large group of amazing houses, all of which they feel would be great homes.

Anyway, after round three, she ranked them:

1-3: Aaron Dallas, Lila Fowler, and Bruce Patman
4. Ken Matthews
5. Maria Slater
6. Cara Walker
7. Ned Wakefield

While she hoped she would pref the houses she listed as her top three (simply because she had really connected with them from day one), she knew she'd really be happy to pref any of these houses.

Prefs

Regina was so happy to receive invites to Aaron, Lila, and Bruce for prefs... but that meant she was in for a really tough choice!

Lila Fowler
Regina visited Lila first. The girls there are smart, sweet, and beautiful. They make her feel totally at home. She knows she could be totally happy here and would be very proud to call herself a Lila Fowler.

Aaron Dallas
Then Regina visited Aaron. She felt everything there that she felt at Lila, but she also felt a little extra "spark" that she hadn't felt before... almost like she was already part of the chapter. This feels like home.

Bruce Patman
Last, Regina visited Bruce. These girls are smart, sweet, beautiful, and welcoming, and she would be happy to be a member here, but of the three chapters she felt slightly less at home here than the others.

She ranked them:
1. Aaron
2. Lila
3. Bruce
