JHU Recruitment Article

Thought some of you would be interested! As per usual, they botched the numbers, but the rest is pretty accurate. One of our new members was even quoted! It was a pretty good recruitment for all but a handful of fraternities (from what I've heard). The published fraternity recruitment numbers may or may not be correct, if the results published for sororities are any indication (for the record, Phi Mu got quota of 53, Alpha Phi got 51 and Kappa got 49, though we're COBing a few more.) They also discuss the vote for extension that will probably occur next week.


While Hopkins sororities saw a significant increase in pledges, fraternity results were mixed.

Statistics for the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) sororities showed a total of 157 women joining sororities at Hopkins, up 34 percent from last year's 117.

Of the 157 new members this spring, 53 pledged Alpha Phi, up 13 from last year, and 51 pledged Kappa Kappa Gamma, which was also 13 more than last year. Phi Mu saw 53 pledges, an increase of 14 from last year's 39.

Greek Life Coordinator Rob Turning said that the absence of Kappa Alpha Theta, closed last spring by its national headquarters, has not affected the number of women joining sororities this year.

However, the quota for each sorority was raised to 53 new members to accommodate not only to the increased number of participants but also to adjust for the absence of Theta.

Turning said that the Theta headquarters would not entertain a return until all former members graduate from Hopkins, as their charter had been removed for disciplinary reasons.

However, the introduction of a new sorority may be a possibility.

"The Panhellenic Council will begin discussions about opening up for the extension of a new group, probably, at their next meeting," he said.

"They will introduce membership statistics and get feedback from their international headquarters, then propose a formal vote."

While not all official numbers for the fraternities are available at present, most reported an increase in pledge numbers and an overall positive turnout that exceeded expectations despite inclement weather.

A total of 201 men registered for recruitment this year, according to Turning, though not all of them are sure to join.

In addition to this year's freshman class size, which provided a large recruiting pool, he attributed the growth to Greek Week, started two years ago by the Office of Greek Life, the Inter-Fraternity Council and the Panhellenic Council. Testa said that this series of events and competitions helped to promote the presence of Greek life on campus. Some fraternities attributed their success to more variety and creativity in programming.

Beta Theta Pi has reported 23 pledges, a significant increase from last year's 11. Thus far, Alpha Epsilon Pi reported 12 pledges, Phi Delta Theta reported 22, Pi Kappa Alpha 26, Sigma Alpha Epsilon 19 and Sigma Phi Epsilon 20.
