The last 2 chapters at TU to figure out were MY chapter (XO) and DDD.


For Sante Fe, there wasn't a lot to go on. Mostly comments describing the members. PS's comments about either Santa Fe being real powerhouse sorority all over... except in our state and this region -- I didn't feel that applied to either XO or DDD in the state of Oklahoma. Her description of the OU chapter was generic and all over the place (post 46)

In post #193 in the original thread, PS talks about "her particular situation" at OU Deer Valley. "How they had more than twice their quota number just in legacies coming through deer valley this year... more than any other year. several were "in house" legacies... and several were very important legacies ..." So Syd would need to join TU Deer Valley in order for PS to be considered and that would be a very liberal description, as 1 would need to be initiated to have a legacy. Two of my TU XO sisters have daughters that went to OU. Both pledged Chi O and a high percentage of their NM classes were legacies. OU tends to have more Chi O legacies than NM quota. It was when I went through OU Rush when Pledge Class Quota was 50 and there were well over 50 Chi O legacies going through. Quota in 2013 was 80 and my XO sister's daughter was about 1 of almost 50 legacies. And Chi O only considers Mothers and Sisters in Legacy status.

Going with this assumption,
Deer Valley = Chi O
and, that would mean the last unknown chapter to be
Sante Fe = DDD

Continuing with Syd's recruitment, her four-party day, she went to these 3 chapters:
Keystone = Theta
Deer Valley = Chi O
Aspen = DG
and, ultimately, gets an invitation to join Aspen = DG

This happens right before PS's 2nd day of Open Houses, when the "secret meeting" in post #193 occurs.
For eight-party day, she mentions going to 3 houses:
Aspen = DG
Taos & Vail

In post #46, PS says that Taos is "this was the smallest chapter on campus. they were realitively new"
I believe AOPi colonized at OU in the early 2000's, so
Taos = AOPi

Not much to go on for Vail, but that they have an elegant house.
Since I think Breckenridge = AGD (smallest chapter, prior to going to Taos, which matches the #s at OU) and that Telluride = APhi (as it is "surrounded by several of the best fraternity chapters and their houses... but no other sororities" because APhi has much more fraternities as neighbors from its location on campus).

The OU Gamma Phi house is a 1 story house, so I don't think it would be Vail. Alpha Chi has a stately house, but I think the detailing on the Pi Beta Phi house may be considered more "elegant":
http://www.ou.edu/content/studentlif..._beta_phi.html
(but that's just my opinion)
I think Vail = Pi Phi
(and several others have posted that they think she was invited back to Pi Phi also)

Here's why I think the story takes place in Oklahoma.
In post #214, PS states that
* football is big in the state
* we had an "all state homecoming queen." at the beginning of playoffs they gathered all, and i mean all... of the homecoming queens from all over the entire state to select the "all state homecoming queen."

Both true. One of my friends won All State Homecoming Queen our senior year. (If another state has an All State Homecoming Queen, please post.)

Her last post is #290, where she states "she cannot continue" and apologizes to her family. So we may never find out the end of this mystery.

She also posted that SHE was the 1 who went away to college. So, I think the family is from the Tulsa area. I also know someone who was Miss TU, then Miss Oklahoma (Miss America). I'm going to do some ground work when I go back for Homecoming, as TU will also be having an "All Greek Reunion".

And, of course, I may be COMPETELY WRONG about everything!

But if you are wrong, we will never know, will we? And this is the closest we have been up to now. I'm enthralled.

ChioLu, I still believe the original story was fiction, but I applaud your detective work and found it more entertaining and informative than the piece that inspired it.

Or before 1996.

After I posted this, I realized -- wait -- OKlahoma State has five of the six chapters as Tulsa university! The only one not at OSU is DG. And The OSU Theta house is also Tudor style. I may have blown my own theory out of the water.

So calling all cowboys or those familiar with OSU, can you help answer some questions? How many chapters on campus and when/who are the last expansions?

There are 12 chapters at OSU. Phi Mu colonized there in 1979 and AOPi has been there since 2012, I think. Alpha Xi Delta will be re-colonizing in the next few weeks.

Tulsa sounds more like the right fit historically.

Was Tulsa considered an elite school for the wealthy in the 90s? I was wondering @ the HS description also. If the family was from Tulsa, maybe Monte Casino?

The elite school for the wealthy would likely be Cascia Hall.

My only flaws with ChioLu's work is that the OU DG house isn't Georgian. It is lovely and enormous, but wouldn't be described as Georgian. Also, the old ZTA house is Tudor, and may have housed Phi Mu, depending on what year the story occurred.
