Right now there are 1457 listed. There were a few who withdrew right before Convocation, then a few last minute sign ups we found out about this morning (first day of Open House round). Then Panhellenic has posted a list of no shows who have been taken off.

I'm an Bama alum and member of Zeta Tau Alpha. I depend on some friends down there who are advisors to other GLO's and Greek Chat to keep me updated during rush. Good luck to everyone!! I'm actually glad to see the numbers drop some - those chapters are too big for their houses. When Delta Gamma comes on, it should help a little.

Keep us posted on what is going on.

Is DG still colonizing this Fall?? They were picked to come onto campus after Alpha Phi.

They did VERY well last year, pledging 13 or 14, I think. They still own their house...just leasing it temporarily to Alpha Phi.
Can I tell you how much I love them for this? So many groups would be "recolonizing" or whatever, but I love the respect that SDT has for this chapter to let them be the size they are in a happy way.

Certainly, I hope they grow in membership and someday move back into their house (of course after Alpha Phi finds a permanent home). But to be allowed to be a happy, low pressure small chapter is a real gift.

Delta Gamma has not yet chosen a firm date for colonization.

Tonight is the first voting session after two days of open houses. I understand that more than a few girls do not have grades and it may be rough for them. Certainly the houses who have to release a LOT of girls will be looking hard at recs and grades. I hope all of these girls took their recs seriously - I 'm afraid they just don't realize how cruciall they are at Bama. We will see what tomorrow brings.

Oh yeah. Overall PNM GPA's were significantly lower this year. All the sororities were surprised by this and are wondering if there is some underlying cause or if it is just a fluke/coincidence that happened this year.

The total number starting Philanthropy Day was 1455. Several PNMs voluntarily withdrew during or after Open House round. Since that number was the same this morning as it was late last night, but before the invitation lists were due, I am assuming no PNM was completely cut after the first round. (Remember, that is my assumption and I have no official confirmation of this as yet.)

Good luck to everyone at Alabama! My friend is an AOII there and absolutely LOVES her sisters, and has nothing but good things to say about every house on campus.

What is the maximum number of sororities that PNM can attend on philanthropy day and also for the remaining parties?

KK Bama, the MVP I advised last year is a CLC with your ladies this year! I have heard great things about the chapter and am looking forward to wonderful recruitment updates! I'm sending my love and pink carnations your way.

There is something on the College Confidential board about Alabama lowering entry GPAs this year in order to increase number of students. If so, it makes sense that the GPAs coming through rush would be lower.
