Spring Recruitment at University of Alabama?

I have seen some signs around campus for spring recruitment. I have e-mailed the Greek Life office, but haven't gotten a response yet. Anybody know which chapters may be participating?

I am a freshman at Bama and will be going through fall recruitment in August. I also went through this past time and ended up dropping out because I was totally unprepared. This time I hope to know a little more what to expect. A friend of mine that is still a high school senior has been invited to a tea sponsored by one of the sororities. How do they get the names of PNMs?

Thanks for any help/advice.

Have you thought about physically visiting the Greek Life office on campus and getting your information there?

hey my cousins go to bama. if an active knows a girl that went to their high school/family/ what have you, (and they like you) they will invite you to a tea so their sorority sisters can meet you. you also get info about rush and their sorority. if you can get an invite ,it would be very beneficial for the upcoming recruitment. but i do not know if its only open to incoming freshman, or if all the sororities do it. i know that DZ does.

it would be better to ask a bama active on GC.

Or an advisor (two immediately pop into my head). They'll know too.

It's funny talking to J about FR - he went to UGA (very competitive) and I went to a pretty non-competitive school. And the differences are just ginormous!!! I honestly don't think I would have gotten a bid in that kind of FR (may have even dropped or not gone through all together). I don't know how all these women do it every year (the actives and the PNMs).

/end hijack.

Only Chapters below Chapter Total (currently 180) could participate in Spring Recruitment. Usually Chapters have until sometime at the end of January to submit their updated active lists to Panhellenic. (Sorry, I don't know what the exact date was off the top of my head.) This would factor in any December grads, anyone who transferred to another college, didn't return to school, etc. I don't believe they have issued the current Chapter Totals list yet, so I have no idea who may be looking to hold Open Recruitment this Spring.

My best advice is to keep checking with the Panhellenic Office. Also, do it either in person or by the phone. Emails can easily get overlooked, forgotten about, ignored, deleted by mistake, etc.

I know Gamma Phi has had some spring recruitment events, and I know of one other sorority doing it, but it's only open to friends of the girls.

I think the poster didn't realize how old the post above her/his was. I'm pretty sure you are right, OTW, that with that pledge class, they are probably above 180.

Yes it is.

At the conclusion of 2009 Formal Recruitment in August all Chapters* at Bama were at/above Chapter Total of 180.

(The idea of raising Total has been thrown out there, but as yet it is nothing more than talk.)

* Except SDT which is does not participate in Formal Recruitment.

I know this is a hot button issue, but is there plans for expansion? This seems like a HUGE number for chapter total, especially when recruitment is as competitive as it is. A big house is great, but I'm just thinking of the logistics of fitting that many girls in 1 room!

Alpha Phi just chartered and another NPC already selected will have the opportunity to go on in either 2010 or 2011.

Anyone have any idea how many girls SDT took? I have an SDT conference call tonight so I'm planning on asking but I was wondering if any of you ladies would know!
