Interested in an AI

I am currently interested in an AI by me since I went to a college without Greek Life. I have always been interested in Greek Life, but the college I attended that I had my true fit, didn't have it. Anyway, I have always been interested in sisterhood and community service. I found a sorority that shares the same ideals as myself with a philanthropy I already support..but I was wondering...how many women actually join an AI without being apart of its colleigate chapter?

Are you asking how many women get the chance to join via AI?

What sorority do you want to join? AI varies greatly between NPC, NPHC, and other umbrella organizations, and can vary to an even greater degree between the individual organizations within them.

It seems to me that you're confused as to what AI is.. You say you're "interested in an AI" and you ask how many women join an AI. AI is not an alumnae chapter of some kind, which seems to be what you think it is..

But maybe I'm wrong?..

It varies from sorority to sorority.

Really, when you think about it, when's the last time we had an AI thread? Guess it was about time.

At least she specifies that she's "currently interested"...that way, we know that we don't actually need to answer any of her questions. Since, by the time she would make any headway, she'll be interested in something else instead.

Alumnae initiation

I really need some help in this field!! This process is not easy! I regret not getting initiated 25 years ago, which was my fault, did not make my grades. Now that I am older and have the potential opportunity to become initiated into the sorority that I had originally pledged in college, they are turning their back on me. Not very "sisterly" in my opinion. I lost touch with everyone for 25 years and have missed them terribly. Should I continue to become a member or seek another?

Should I even comment on the username?

Naw, I'll let it go...

Maybe they're turning their backs on you because 25 years later you're running around perping their letters with things like your user name?

I wonder if she's the famous MS State ADPi perp? http://www.greekchat.com/gcforums/sh...highlight=perp
