Carnation Nation at the Beach Recruitment Story!

My niece will be rushing at a medium-sized university this semester. I won't be starting her recruitment thread until September and I'm going to start it on Day 2 when she can return to up to 4 parties.

See, I'm embarrassed to admit that I had this idea for 4 code names I loved and I'll forget them if I don't record them now. Advanced age does that to you, haha. So for future reference, my niece (I'll call her Beachcomber) may be returning to:

Sand Dollar
Starfish
Sea Glass
Moonjellies

So we're back again!

On Day 2, Beachcomber did indeed return to Sand Dollar, Sea Glass, Starfish, and Moonjellies. She is rushing with her roommate, who is also returning to those 4.

Sea Glass: really likes them. She had met several sisters in the past few weeks.

Sand Dollar: likes them okay.

Starfish: said this was a very odd situation. Her rusher had absolutely nothing to say so Beachcomber just sat and stared around the room for the rest of the party.

Moonjellies: she is in love! She loved the girls, presentation, everything!

She and Roomie found that they had ranked the sororities identically:

Moonjellies
Sea Glass
Sand Dollar
Starfish

All right. Day 3:

Beachcomber went to parties at Moonjellies, Sea Glass, and Sand Dollar. (So did Roomie!) They've been loving recruitment; they say it's overwhelming, nervewracking, and tiring but they love it!

Moonjellies: she adores them. She loves what she's heard, she adores the girls she's met.

Sea Glass: she really likes these girls too. She doesn't know as many but she likes the ones she's met!

Sand Dollar: Beachcomber likes them but she has to rank the groups for prefs and she and her roommate ranked them:

Moonjellies
Sea Glass
Sand Dollar

That's been our hope. They've both been homesick.

Pref Night!

Beachcomber and Roomie were thrilled to find out that they'd both been asked back to Moonjellies and Sea Glass. I didn't get a report from Roomie but Beachcomber said this:

Sea Glass-"I had a great time and could see myself here."

Moonjellies- "When we came up to the house and I saw all the sisters lined up in their ___ dresses, I knew this was where I wanted to be. Aunt Carnation, I love them!"

Both girls ranked them:

Moonjellies
Sea Glass

and I made sure to talk Panhellenically about being happy with your bid and so forth. I sensed that she would be happy in either group because she'd made some good friends but hoped that she'd get her first choice because for a girl who was unsure about rushing (she's grown up away from all her girl cousins), she had fallen for Moonjellies with a bang.

I so hope they end up in the same chapter! One of them will be heartbroken if one ends up in Moonjellies and the other doesn't.
