University of Missouri Recruitment 2012

My daughter will be rushing at Mizzou this fall as an incoming freshman. All PNMs move in on August 12th, with recruitment starting the 13th. Do any other GC ladies have daughters going through Mizzou rush this fall?

The schedule goes as follows:
Monday & Tuesday - Open House Days
Wednesday - Sisterhood Day
Thursday - Philanthropy Day
Friday - Preference
Saturday - Bid Day

The 14 chapters at Mizzou are:
Alpha Chi Omega
Alpha Delta Pi
Alpha Phi
Chi Omega
Delta Delta Delta
Delta Gamma
Gamma Phi Beta
Kappa Alpha Theta
Kappa Delta
Kappa Kappa Gamma
Phi Mu
Pi Beta Phi
Sigma Sigma Sigma
Zeta Tau Alpha


I thought I would use code names for the chapters based on designers, as I've lately been very into fashion. Of course, these are listed in a different order than the list above.
Marc Jacobs
Chanel
Dolce & Gabbana
Stella McCartney
Gucci
Steve Madden
Prada
Alexander McQueen
Calvin Klein
Vera Wang
Kate Spade
Betsey Johnson
Rachel Zoe
Ralph Lauren


Sigma Kappa will also be colonizing this fall at Mizzou.
Does anyone have any insight into if they will be participating in formal recruitment or how this will work?

My daughter is not a legacy to any chapter - in fact, she is the first in our family to try and "go Greek!". My daughter is well aware that cuts will be heavy and that she should keep an open mind and not listen to any stereotypes.

I am cautiously optimistic that if she keeps an open mind, she will find her home. That's all for now! I will continue to update everyone once recruitment starts.

I'd love for anyone else to join in on the discussion!

Don't forget, Sigma Kappa will be establishing a new colony at Mizzou this fall.

I have a daughter who will be going through recruitment at Iowa, but my son will be a junior at Mizzou and is in a frat. His girlfriend is also in a sorority. Looking forward to your posts. I know that it is a very busy and emotional week. Best of luck to your daughter!

The internet is not as anonymous as people think. Perhaps err on the side of caution and post your daughter's story or your own AFTER recruitment has ended.
