Yes according to Jones' first-page article on Sunday. The new director is named Dyonne Butler and she is Delta Sigma Theta.

Oh wow. I really had no idea. I thought Claudia Shamp was still the director. She was really great and tried to help DPhiE any way she could. I'm said to see that she has left.

Editorial about UGA Recruitment from Atlanta Journal - Constitution

The AJC's editorial board evidently is supporting the idea of deferred NPC recruitment at UGA. The editorial is at:

I agree with deferred rush, but what stupid examples to use...

1) After Princeton sent the "don't go Greek" letters...they got their largest pledge classes EVER.

2) Are they really concerned about the women, or about being like their "aspirational" schools? Many schools that are far from being considered "elite" also have deferred rush. The author seems to not understand that deferred doesn't always equal elite school.

There was an official AJC correction in that it used Pan-Hellenic instead of the corrected Panhellenic.

I find it interesting that as recruitment went along, the stories were buried in the middle of the Metro section...like, what's the point. You're not saying anything creative.

But today's article did say that parents were calling Greek life about any group that may be on probation (none are). I'd think the pnm's would already know that.

UGA actually did a study about switching to deferred recruitment a few years ago based on comparable schools and aspirational schools, and it concluded that it would have negative effects on the system and few or no positive effects for the school at large.

Unless the AJC series has somehow swayed public opinion, I don't see it happening.

I don't think it'd be that bid a deal to switch one way or another once the transition was established. It's just going to be a really hard change to implement because of the change itself.

Michael Adams just keeps trying to do everything he can to harm/get rid of the Greek system doesn't he?

Doesn't he realize Happy Greeks = Happys Alums = greater donations?
