2015 Purdue University Sorority Recruitment starts this weekend!

Purdue University formal recruitment starts tomorrow!

A total of 974 PNMs have registered for recruitment; which I believe is an increase from last year.

Here are the rounds:

Aug 28 & 29 Open House: Visit all 17 sororities
Aug 30 First Invitational: Visit a maximum of 13 sororities
Sept 5 Second Invitational: Visit a maximum of 8 sororities.
Sept 6 Preference: Visit a maximum of 3 sororities.
Sept 7 Bid Night!

Interesting tidbit: Gamma Chis are not disaffiliating from their chapters for the first time this year. The Gamma Chis told the PNMs what house they belong to when they met their PNMs.

Does anyone else know of this being done at other universities and why?

What an interesting idea, on an interesting campus.

I love hearing @ Midwestern recruitment! Anyone have rec girls to follow?

Eta: must not have read my last issue of The Angelos, where it said KD is colonizing this fall at Purdue!

I have always loved the Greek system at Purdue. When I was in college, I was fortunate to attend two Greek Leadership conferences there and it was a lot of fun. Everyone was super friendlyl.

I think this is an NPC pilot program or something. Didn't they do this at UCLA last year? (I'm pretty pregnant, so I could also be crazy!)

Yea, me too, RE: Gamma Chi's not being open about affiliation: I could see it going either way. In some cases it could really help break down stereotypes, i.e., "YOU are an XYZ? Hmmm...cute, active, friendly, smart...maybe I need to re-think the tent talk". On the other hand, one poorly chosen Gamma Chi could cause issues.

I was a "Rush Counselor" back in the day, and we were supposed to be unaffiliated and went into the process anonymously, but we were unsophisticated back in the Pleistocene era and there were always party pics, scrapbook pics, etc that were inadvertently left out/open to view, so by round 2, it was an open secret who we were.

I will be interested to hear how this goes. Good Luck to all at Purdue!

I was in your shoes (v pregnant) last year, so I know the feeling!

IDK how I would have felt knowing those affiliations. I hated one of my Rho Chi's houses, so in retrospect, I'm glad I didn't know at the time. I liked my Rho Chi, though. I'm also curious about the rationale behind the program.

Purdue is one of those schools that does not seem to have the numbers to support extension, yet they did a stacked one. KD is the second leg of the stack (AOII already came on). I hope it goes well.

Doesn't everyone know their Rho Gam affiliations anyway? There is just too much social media to hide it.

While I wish KD well, I have to agree.....I don't know a lot about the numbers that calculate extension, but I wondered about this as well.

One of the girls in the chapter told me that Ohio State did this last year and it worked great. I am not sure what that means.....she mentioned that it was to help cut down on dirty rushing. I would love to hear from anyone who might know the thinking behind this...

Purdue is also likely going to move the Open House round to the Union next year with each house having a room.....I don't want to be an old alum but I don't like this idea!
