It looks like there are 12 chapters at NC State. One is a sorority for STEM majors. The other 11 are NPC chapters. You said she started with 10 chapters on the first day. In looking at one of our other threads here, Alpha Xi Delta apparently closed in 1989, but NC State Panhellenic has them on their website. I see from their advertisements that AXiD is recolonizing this fall!
Yes, 10 houses for formal recruitment, and they were introduced to AXiD in the first round.

My daughter wasn’t planning to rush since there is no AOII chapter there. My older daughter and I told her that they vary from campus to campus anyway, and it doesn’t hurt to at least experience recruitment. Since she was a spring admit, we were surprised when she decided to go through Fall Recruitment. We told her to just go with an open mind, and not listen to what others say or have said about each sorority, and truly listing your favorites regardless of what anyone else says. She is great at reading people, so I knew she would do just that! She did experience some of the meanness from some of the other PNMs, particularly when cuts started, but she brushed it off because she was determined to have the best time no matter what. As she recounted her experiences each day, my older daughter and I got excited for her, but we didn’t tell her that she was actually having a GREAT recruitment! She figured it out when she realized not everyone was going to every party each day. Today she is going to Preference at her 2 favorite houses, and she tells us she loves both, so she will be happy either way.

You clearly raised a wise, mature young woman with strong coping skills. I hope she truly finds the perfect “people” for her—it sounds like she can’t go wrong. CONGRATS to mother AND daughter(s)!

Thank you so much! She is aware of what could happen, but she will be fine no matter what!

Macanoble-Thank you for sharing your daughter's experience. Glad to see that she has a very mature and balanced outlook about sorority recruitment. Hope that she has enjoyed her preference with DZ and DG.

Okay, so she just called, SO EXCITED, and I couldn’t hear her because it was so loud!! If she had a clear favorite, I would know, but the call was over as quickly as it came, and now…. I’m still wondering!!!!
