Thumbs up At last!!!

I'd been waiting to hear more details on the ZTA colonization at KU for what seems like forever, and today I heard something! The student newspaper published the contact info for a ZTA rep whom we could call for details about their recruitment. I'll call her later today after I get off work.

Colonization starts September 15th, and I'm already dying of suspense!

It's a great experience. Tests your patience and the strength of your relationships. Best of luck in founding your own chapter!

ZTA colonization

I am so excited for you! Best of luck to you as you learn more about ZTA and possibly becoming a founding sister of the KU chapter. Be sure to give us all of the wonderful details.

Thanks for all the good wishes, everybody! I called the ZTA rep tonight, but she wasn't in so I left a message. I'll keep you posted on what happens next.

Now I'm really starting to get nervous. KU's bid day was yesterday. Of the 819 women signed up for rush, 635 got bids. You could make an entire chapter out of this year's bidless rushees! Why would they take an old fart like me when there are so many underclassmen who want to join?

They would take an old fart like you because you're going to graduate soon, which means instant alumna!

During the colonization interviews, tell them how interested you are in the alumnae experience. I gather you are interested in the alumnae experience 'cuz you're looking to pursue alumnae initiation if this ZTA thing doesn't pan out. If you're interested in being an active alumna, then that means that you'll be willing to keep working with the chapter even after you graduate. They NEED that.

They want women of all ages in a new colony, not just freshmen. You can mentor younger sisters. That's what sisterhood is. And you already have tons of practice mentoring younger Greeks from GC!

You already know your way around KU - you know the ins and the outs of the campus - imagine having an entire sorority of freshmen...it would be mass chaos! Of course they'd want older women to join. It was only in 1991 that Kappa Delta colonized at KU - and they are a very chapter now, and I'm sure they had upper classmen as some of their founding members.

Out of curiosity, I am wondering where ZTA will be housed. Does Theta Chi still live next to AXO? And I know that Delta Tau Delta is no longer at KU - who is living there now?

Good luck!

As the Director of Expansion for my group, I would be very interested in upper classmen for leadership and strength in forming a colony. Of those 200+ girls who went "bidless", many dropped out of rush on their own choice (just wanted to see what it was all about) and other got dropped by groups they may or may not have been interested. While I am sure ZTA will invite all of those bidless women to their first informational or social recruitment event, they are not the only women who would be targeted for membership.

Good luck to you!!

OK, I got ahold of the ZTA rep (who, btw, was super nice). This is how the recruitment schedule is going to go:

Info view meetings (small group or one-on-one w/ ZTA reps): Sept. 15th and 16th. (Sunday & Monday)
1st recruitment event: Sept. 17th (Tuesday)
Philanthropy night: Sept. 18th (Wednesday)
Pref night: Sept. 19th (Thursday)
Bid day: Sept. 20th (Friday)

I want to give a shout out to Delta Chi fraternity, who is letting ZTA use their house for pref night, and Kappa Sigma fraternity, who already agreed to be our partners for Rock Chalk Revue.

They are looking to recruit about 170 women during rush week. I mentioned that I was a senior and she seemed pretty excited about that.

I am positively giddy!!!

Jhawkalum, I PMed you.

congratulations!

Wow, four rounds? They have that many women to weed out?

Not that it's meant to scare you, I'm sure you'll do wonderfully!

Considering that there were about 100 women who rushed this year and didn't get bids, plus another 100 women (give or take) who rushed last year and didn't get bids, and a lot of people like me who never rushed before but want to check out ZTA, it seems fairly reasonable.
