sorry about the delay

i'm going to be posting about the whole week over the next couple of days. My computer has been broken and I just got it fixed today. Woohoo! Anyways, this week started off with Orientation Night! We had about 108 women go through Recruitment this year, which was very low for our school. (It just seemed like no one wanted to go through Recruitment this year!) Tuesday was the first night of Recruitment, Open House Night. All of the Potential New Members got to visit all of the sororities. The sororities rooms were awesome. The first event was started late due to potential new members missing their nametags and having to make new ones for them. Other than that the night was a success.

Wednesday Night

Wednesday Night was a blast our theme was Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs. All of the Recruitment Counselors' outfits were so creative. I was Sneezy. The Potential New Members went to all of the sororities this night. They had a blast and several of them couldn't decide which ones they wanted to go back to tomorrow night, which is the first night that the potential new members have to narrow their events down from 4 to 3 to go back too. We also had a candlelighting ceremony for Sept. 11th which was beautiful besides for the rain. The hardest thing about this week is not trying to say what sorority I am in. Can you guess which one I am in? A lot of the Potential New Members believe that I am either a D Phi E or and Alpha Xi. You will just have to wait to find out.

Thursday and Friday

Thursday morning the potential new members came by to pick up their frist set of invitations. The hardest part of my position is that I have to let those women who do not get an invite back know. I feel so bad but someone has to do it right. Anyways, Thursday night was Skit Night and the Recruitment Counselors were dressed up as little girls. On Friday the women picked up their invitations for Preference in the morning. They were allowed to go back to two sororities, which was hard for them to choose. We have several awesome organizations on our campus and I know when I went through I had a hard time as well. Well, the night started off fine until a sorority member came running into Headquarters (that's where myself, the panhellenic president, and advisor are located) crying. One of their chapter members was having a accute asthma attack and the paramedics were on their way. We all ran as fast as we could to their room. I remained in the room with her while the paramedics worked on her and while they called her parents and calmed the chapter members down. Due to the incident the events started late, since the chapter didn't have time to finish setting up. At this time all of the another chapter pulled together and helped this chapter in their time of need. I call that great unity amongst these organizations. Anyways, the woman that had the attack is fine, she got out of the hospital that night.

As for where I belong, the potential new members believed that I am either a Alpha Xi, D Phi E, or a Phi Sig now. You will see where I belong in a little while. Any guesses from you?

Oh, I hope that sister who suffered the asthma attack is better. Asthma is such a scary, terrible disease.
I'm so glad to hear you all pulled together to handle the situation, that's wonderful.

As for your affiliation, I have my ideas, but I won't say.

hmmm what could you be? I think that you are a D Phi E. I have a 25% chance of being right.

I have no idea which sorority you're a member of, so I'll just guess Alpha Xi Delta

Fraternally,

FAU

Asthma is a scary thing. It is great that everyone pulled together like that. You should all be very proud.

So what was quota and how many groups made it?

I am the Director of Expansion for DPhiE and made the presentation on your campus last year so I am rooting for my girls!

Bid Day

This year quota was set at 21. Only one chapter reached quota and even had quota additions and that chapter was D Phi E. They did a fabulous job this year, especially with just receiving their charter. Congratulations to those women, they've truely earned it!

I never thought that being disaffiliated from my sorority would have been that hard until I was in the Bid Card Pick-up room. The Potential New Members came in one-by-one and openned up their bid card in front of myself and the Panhellenic President. When the women received a invitation to join from my organization I wanted to so badly jump over the table and give them a hug, but I couldn't. Once all of the women picked up their invitations, all of the Recruitment Counselors went to the room were all the sororities were for the picnic and revealing. All of us gave one final hug goodbye before we went to reunite with our sorority. Tears started to fill my eyes when I saw my sorority. I couldn't wait to be back in their arms.

Once all the sororities gathered around the front of the room, we began the revealing. We recited cheers from all of the sororities and each sororities Recruitment Counselors ran to their sorority.
After my cheer I ran back to................................................ ......................................
..........................
..........................
.............................

Alpha Xi Delta!!!!!!

Then our advisor got on the microphone and said "That doesn't seem right! I don't think their in that sorority!!!" We all then ran to the bathroom to change into our letter shirts (we were wearing our Recruitment Counselor Bid Day shirts) and to put a sweater on over it. Then we ran back into the room and one-by-one we revealed our organization. At this time I was crying and couldn't even remember who I ran back too.

Can you guess where I really belong?

There were 2 Recruitment Counselors from Alpha Xi Delta, 1 from Delta Phi Epsilon, 2 from Phi Sigma Sigma, and 4 from Theta Phi Alpha.

I'll be back in a few to tell you were I really belong!!!

Yeah D Phi E! Job well done.

The suspense is killing me. I thought you are D Phi E last night. Now you trick me with AZD. When will the madness end??!!
