affiliating??? please help
I asked a question like this not too long ago but I am dying here so I will ask it again- ( I posted this on another forum so I apologize to anyone who has to view this twice.)
I just transferred to a school with a huge greek system, *from* a school with a huge greek system. I am a sophomore in good standing w/ my old chapter, and I want to affiliate.
It seems like I get a different answer from each person I talk to. I have been in contact with the president, a few actives, and nationals. Now that I am at school, what should be my first step? They definitely know that I want to affiliate, but I just don't know what is going to happen. I called nationals and to be honest they did not have real answers. In fact, I am sorry to say that one of them was somewhat cold. Should I call the president (again)? Should I call nationals (again)? I want to start this process asap because i am new to this school and i know nobody.
Their suite is not too far from me, should I walk over there and start knocking on doors? I'm being a little facetious here, but seriously, I am thinking about it.
Also, several people have told me that affiliates don't affect the chapter's total, so that will not be a factor. Is this true?
Somebody out there surely has some advice for this lost soul. I would appreciate any input so much!
