SDT is participating in formal recruitment. Though they're doing something different numbers wise to help minimize... issues on both sides.

Yes and when the glitter girls show up at their next party,whoever is talking to them probably say "oh you must have just been to ABC".
It's truly unfair to girls who maybe want to go elsewhere.

I think I would be sending that chapter my dry cleaning bill to get the damn glitter out of my clothes.

I wonder if girls who visit the piggy-back house after being glittered then spread the sparkles to the piggy-back-ride-giving actives. Glitter spread all over campus like an infectious disease (potential idea for epidemiologists).

Seems like the prospect of glitter-flinging and piggy-back rides would necessitate some rush wardrobe and accessory considerations -- like bermuda shorts and goggles.

I guess PNMs groan if the glitter house is listed first on the day's line up of parties.

I believe that the glitter event happens either at prefs or the day before.

The piggyback happens the day before Pref. (Think that's Entertainment Day.)
Glitter is on Pref night. So if you go to ABC & get glittered, you're marked like a dog marks a fire hydrant.
Is it known by the PNMs that they will get glittered at ABC?
Not sure what a PNM's reaction should be if you get glittered and really want the 2nd house you pref.

Isn't it said that glitter is the STD of the crafting world?

I hope they do this outside, or at the least not on the carpet.

Do the PNMS know/understand the glitter? I'd be pretty annoyed if I was a PNM and covered in a dust of glitter.

If someone threw glitter on me, I'd be livid. I don't care if a former first lady or two are alums, I'd still be livid.

Can a PNM make a joke about it? Or is that not Panhellenic?

"Yes. And they threw glitter on me. The last time that happened I was 6 and getting a Fairy Princess make-over at Disney World."

Thats why it's normally called "glitter bombing" and it's something you're supposed to do to someone you DON'T LIKE.

Yes, I have heard of glitter bombing be called a "baptism of stupid"- meaning it was something you did when someone said or did something just beyond ignorant.

Have we ever read a post from Texas PNM's to whom this has occured? What was their reaction (or are those to whom this occurs sworn to secrecy)?

Ok, I know about the dance party and the piggy backs but glitter was new to me.

There was "glitter" talk at a House several years ago. Don't know if that has continued or not. One year, I believe, a blue drink was served at pref turning the pnm's who visited that House, tongues blue. There is always some rumor from some group.
I may not have my facts right but it is my understanding that every House will have a National representative on site to make sure Panhellenic rules are followed this year and it is their duty to report their own chapter. I got this information 3rd hand so am not for sure if I have it right or that too is a rumor. I think next Tuesday is Convocation so let the games begin.
