I remembered your story from last year when the news was posted about Gamma Beta chapter's recruitment success. I'm so glad you're at home with Alpha Gam.....perhaps you'll want to change your GreekChat name, though, unless your initials really are PNM?

Congratulations to PNM at FSU! I'm happy that you found a home. I just found this board this year, as my daughter started FSU. She decided against going through Recruitment at this time -- wanted to get settled into college life. Her very good friends' experiences with recruitment sounded just like yours back in 2010. One dropped out on Saturday, as she was disgusted with the whole process; got a call later and was offered a bid; decided she did like that group and accepted: short, a runner, quiet, sweet. Another stuck with it to the end, was offered a bid from one chapter, but ultimately declined, based on her experience of recruitment and what her ideas of sorority life and how it would fit into her college experience: short, funny, cute, outgoing, singer, busty. One got accepted at the sorority of her dreams -- the tall, blond, leggy, gorgeous girl. All of them had great recs, high GPAs, great "resumes." I'm a Greek, and so is my hubby. We saw all the young ladies hot-footing it to all the parties (and I mean this literally and figuratively, it was horrible during move-in day and I'm from Orlando!) After we moved our daughter into her room and were leaving, we were looking at the girls and saying, "yes, yes, yes, no, no, yes,no, no..." I haven't heard how many girls ultimately accepted bids, but it would be interesting to how many accepted bids, how many didn't receive any, how many delclined, etc. I don't think my daughter will go through recruitment next year -- and while I'm sad to say that my beautiful sister's pin wont be passed along to my daughter (I was a legacy), she has to do what's best for her. Who knows -- maybe I'll have a granddaughter one day who will need my pin!

Smile Quite Possibly NolesMom

your granddaughter could end up as your "sister". You just never know.

Whereas nobody in our family had rushed except my husband's mother so daughter went into recruitment finding out she was a DZ legacy the day before she rushed (due to health problems going on with grandparents is reason so late). She knew it was too late to complete the legacy form so went through rush with an open mind. When recruitment was done, she received a bid to her first choice - DZ! And she called her Grandma to let her know that the family legacy at the same sorority would continue!

Wow, bluepink, that's amazing! Maybe it was for the best that your daughter didn't know she was a legacy after all. Might have made her nervous that she might not get in!

FSU's recruitment is so much bigger than my experience of the same. I pledged in 1983, at a very Greek-hostile campus. Just had a room in the student center, and back then, there weren't even dorms on campus.

LOVE that story (although I admit I am probably just a bit biased)!!

Just found this thread and wish I had found it before. I will be sharing with my daughter that just finished rush week and accepted her bid yesterday.

Let's bump this for 2015. I saw elsewhere that 2000 young women have signed up for rush this year.

Although it's been so, so many years, I will never forget my rush experience at FSU and will also never forget the heat. Oh, that heat.
