The elimination of pre recruitment activities would seem to make recs less important. I was able to secure several recs for my step daughter for last year's recruitment and the pre rush invites were VERY helpful to her. She was only a legacy at my house (which is not at IU) so no Greek connections other than some high school friends in houses. She was a rush crush of an active she met at one and that was house she pledged and that active became her big sister. Sure, she might have gotten a bid anyway, but we now know from this active that my step daughter was always on their top list because they bonded at this pre-recruitment party.

FRIDAY
9:00 - 9:45 /
10:05 - 10:50 /
11:10 - 11:55 / Drink Round
12:15 - 1:00 /
BREAK 1:00 - 3:10 /
3:10 - 3:55 /
4:15 - 5:00 /
5:20 - 6:05 / Drink Round
6:25 - 7:10

SATURDAY
9:00 - 9:45 /
10:05 - 10:50 /
11:10 - 11:55 / Drink Round
12:15 - 1:00 /
BREAK 1:00 - 3:10 /
3:10 - 3:55 /
4:15 - 5:00 /
5:20 - 6:05 / Drink Round
6:25 - 7:10

SUNDAY
9:00 - 9:45 /
10:05 - 10:50 / Drink Round
11:10 - 11:55 /
12:15 - 1:00 /
BREAK 1:00 - 3:10 /
3:10 - 3:55 /
4:15 - 5:00 / Drink Round
5:20 - 6:05 /
6:25 - 7:10 / Drink Round

It also looks like one round is being eliminated and PNMs will go 21-12-3. I hope I am getting correct information.

What a brutal schedule....but there is really nothing else they could do.

You got it. The next Saturday (formerly 8 now 12 party) is an interesting schedule as well. Let's just say my email and cell phone have blown up this evening.

With only three brief parties to meet PNMs, they're keeping the skits? I know the houses have put a lot of effort already into rehearsing etc., but sheesh.

Those cuts are deadly. My note to the girls going through - DO NOT TAKE THESE CUTS PERSONALLY. I know it sucks and it's hard to accept, but the chapters have to make massive cuts. Just because you might not have made the cuts at some of your favorite chapters doesn't mean they didn't like you; it just means they liked more girls than they had spaces for. Chin up, keep hydrated, this is no time for partying or anything else that isn't eat, sleep, rush, and be supportive of one another. Good luck!

Wow, I just can't even imagine having to pick only 3 chapters out of 12. That is a huge drop. It's almost a disservice to the girls and the chapters as neither really gets to know each other well enough. :/

But do I understand the parties are longer? So they can mix convo and skit in 1 party. I definitely feel for them. If it was back in my day, I'd be sending those girls a couple bottles of something to pass around after the parties! But laws, jail, blah blah blah. I guess I won't

According to campus sources 1616 women checked in tonight AND Very Bradley Company provided the small quilted ID/holder change purse wallets for all of the PNMs. There is a correlation between IU's Kappa Delta chapter and someone big at Vera Bradley. KDs help me out here.

Yep, just heard from step daughter, she is in the skit for her house. She said there are 24 rounds with 3 breaks....I can't tell if that lines up with the schedule that you posted. Yikes, it just sounds brutal for all involved.

I think you mean more like recruitment epics or recruitment sagas...The Odyssey has nothing on this.
