Call the national NPC office. Their number is at the bottom of that list.

Should I try to get in touch with UNC panhel (they also pretty much said you're on your own for recs, because they supposedly aren't very important).
If you are in-state there are active alum Panhells in Wilmington and Raleigh/Durham. I think Charlotte's is active also but doesn't have a working website. If you contact any of those panhells the women would be more than happy to point you in the right direction.

I agree with the posts about UNC Chapel Hill. I have written several recs this year for UNC.

Being from the South I just can't imagine sending one of my daughters off to any school without recs! It just wouldn't seem right somehow....

I don't want to go to work today. There is nothing to do... and the pay sucks. I'll sit there for hours doing nothing at all.

So, at work where there is nothing to do, and the pay sucks, recs are DEFINITELY neccessary.

You're going to be at a serious disavantage, just because most of the other PNMs will have them.

Ok, I am coming into this post late, but I would think recs would be needed at a school like DePauw simply for the mere fact that two of the six NPC chapters have their Alpha chapters there (Kappa Alpha Theta and Alpha Chi Omega). However, someone from DePauw might have more insight.

I am glad I checked this though, I am writing a rec for someone going to LSU. I told her it is probably a good idea to get recs for every sorority there!

Thanks!
You probably aren't going to get any takers on that one. Asking random names on a message board to write you a rec is a bad plan.

You say you don't know "many" people - well, ask the people you DO know, and then see if they have friends in other sororities who might be willing to help you. Do this SOON.

FYI, someone asked a few pages back if recs are required at CSU schools. I can tell you for sure that at CSULB (or LBSU whichever you prefer to call it) recs are not required at all. As a matter of fact I think most chapters wouldn't even know what to do with them . In the years since I was initiated(wow, long ago now) and helping with recruitment as an alumna(from 94-08) I never once saw a rec...and that was a lot of years.

According to this thread, recs are good to have at UNT but not to the extent of other Texas schools.

This thread about Michigan says that it's great if you can get them (esp. if you are an upperclassman) but not a must.
