Hi! haven't been paying attention to GC for a few days.

The Theta, PiPhi, Kappa facilities at UofA (Arizona, folks) go back to circa 1917. I adore the Kappa and PiPhi facilities... truth: I have major envy of the Kappa property. Major. It is simply spectacular, IMO. I believe 70+ members can live in!

Architecture:in Tucson there's a hodge-podge/mishmash of styles, depending on when building occurred. Not a unified look at all, like Santa Fe NM, for example.

I will take AZ-Alpha Xi with me, go for a walk, and get photos (she's better at it than I am) of the facilities on our campus.

There are two fairly NEW facilities on campus, and just for fun, I'm going to not say which ones they are. I'll post photos and see if you guys can guess (no cheating from the AZ folks on GC, please).

When helping a friend whose daughter was going through recruitment at Alabama, we found Alumnae groups are easy to find on the web sites of different GLO's. But do got through the usual rounds before you cold call an Alumna Chapter President. Ask your physicians, school teachers, neighbors, pastors, volunteer-friends, whom they know. I bet some of those rec writers you know can help you find those other GLO alumnae.

If daughter has year-older friends who pledged, ask them where their recs came from.

Thank you for the suggestions. I didn't even think of looking at each national sorority's individual website, but after she did, she found some local contacts.

Since we are so far away from Ole Miss, we didn't think we'd have much luck finding anyone who had gone there, but my daughter had her Ole Miss shirt on at a church function the other day and a lady came up and asked her about it. It turns out she was a Phi Mu at Ole Miss. She had seen my daughter on worship team and offered to write a rec for her. :-)

Again, thank you for your help.

It sounds like you know this, but just to be extra clear, the recs don't have to be from women who attended Ole Miss.

You might ask this lady if she knows anyone else who could help with recs. She probably does and might be able to point you at other Greek women in your church.

We are going to ask her if she will direct us to some other greeks she may know at Ole Miss. She is such a sweet lady.

Actually, I am on staff at our church so I've been through most of the membership already checking for sorority affiliations. I had missed this lady because she is fairly new to our church and our congregation is pretty large.

Gamma Phi's pink palace is another oldie. It was built in 1925 and houses 59 women.

Historic preservation is one of my hobbies and I love looking at old sorority and fraternity houses. In my research I've seen many of the original houses of chapters that now have houses that were built in the latter part of the 20th century. The styles were much more homogenous and very typical of the southwest during the time they were built.

Sounds like we need a University of Arizona Greek Architecture Thread?

Ole Miss Panhellenic has a Pintrest Account. They have boards with suggestions of what to wear for each round and Boards for each chapter on campus.

I'm an ADPi and that house is UGLY. Compared to the other houses, I see why it was a HUGE deterrent.

That being said I would LOVE for ADPi to present and try to recolonize our chapter there.

I know one of them (LOL). I've got pics of our house. I think I've got a "before" and "after". Definitely an "after".
