I’m afraid since DD did well after round 1, Saturday morning is going to be a huge blow. It’s the name of the game though, and I want it over! The Fireball is coming out tomorrow night!

There will be absolutely no judging if you pull it out now! My daughter's turn will be next week and I already want it to be over!

As always the UGA student newspaper, The Red and Black, posts a daily album of pictures from each round of recruitment. Here is a link to Round One: https://www.redandblack.com/multimed...5ebd9e.html#19

This is a great resource for upcoming PNMs who want to get a look at what PNMs and sisters really wear for recruitment, what the tents look like and even a peak at what the boys on campus are doing during recruitment (don't worry, Mamas, its mostly flirting while handing out water!)

Now did I get cut from places (cough KD cough) that I thought I had nailed it? Sure. But not really the point. I'm an optimist.

Truth be told, seven houses is PLENTY for second round. You can focus a little better, you get some breaks... you have the advantage over Full Schedule Felicia who can't catch her breath and can't remember Delta Zeta from Delta Gamma. Or was it Gamma Phi Beta?

I am glass half full, for sure, but full schedules are a rarity, and they come with their own heartburn.

Good luck Moms and Daughters!
I loved your recruitment story!

This is great info indeed. As for the guys watching? When I went through rush (decades ago), there were always guys who literally "set up shop" - they'd put a sofa on the sidewalk across the street from some sorority houses and sat there to watch the girls go by, LOL. I even remember hearing a story of some guys driving down the street who were so busy watching girls that they rear-ended another car.

No - the parties are all inside, but the girls wait outside between parties. The busses are air conditioned and tents help keep them out of the elements, but the humidity is intense!

I know of it happening on Bid Day. Guys would cruise up and down South Milledge like kids in a candy store. We saw a fender-bender my Junior year.

Apparently, from the sister side, the sororities/panhellenic are all excited about R2 return rates.

Any news on the UGA front? I heard back from 2 of my rec girls and round 3 didn't go as well as they thought. They were each cut by houses they liked, but each have at least 1 they are hoping to pref...Prefs are tomorrow morning, which back in Ancient Times, we had them in the evening!

How interesting that they do prefs in the morning...never heard of that. The schools that I'm familiar with still do them in the evening. Just personally, but I like evening since it adds an air of formality and mystery as well.

Do you know the reason for having them in the morning? When do they get their bids?

And I wish them luck and staying open to whichever house wants them as a sister!

Definitely. I think around 4 - 7 PM. Then we would start scrambling for bid day.

Back in the days of skits, they started crazy early, and there was food. So as a Rushee, depending on where started your day, you might be greeted with a slab of cheesecake at 7:45AM.

And of course, we all kept the Coca-Cola distributor busy with deliveries of the little glass bottles.

Sugar coma for days.

Bids are distributed Monday at 6pm. I believe Monday is also the first day of classes.

My son's precious high school classmate became my Monmouth Duo sister today when she pledged KKG at Georgia Southern!
