Any sorority that would be mad because you didn't suicide them is obviously full of bitches.

Oh, absolutely! But if that did happen, the poor pledge wouldn't know it until she's pledged to the bitchy sorority and then it would be too late (at least for that year).

So, I suppose, actually, that if CeCe is a quota addition AND the chapter advisor/chapter officer in charge of recruitment figures out she's a quota addition AND said person has a big mouth and tells the chapter, then yes, I suppose the chapter would know. But, if she HAD suicided, she wouldn't have ended up as a quota addition and a NM....
But the only way to know someone is a QA is to see that she is in your chapter, and another PNM who listed you first is not. So you'd have to know a lot of information to which you are really not privvy to be certain.

A couple of years back we had a girl wear a hoodie with fraternity letters on it to the second night of recruitment, which is generally our "snappy casual" night when we are all in heels and skirts. She was not a sweetheart or pinned and this created a horrible impression, especially among the girls in the sorority who had ties to that fraternity and were technically allowed to wear their letters. Do not act like you are somehow better connected then the next girl, it comes across as crass and arrogant.

To slightly paraphrase DubaiSis: "Don't say goofy sh** that you think makes you memorable."

Yes! This! How many times have I overheard anxious PNMs spout awkward stuff that weirds out the sisters?

Don't risk it!!!!

I think that Panhellenic frowns on boys being involved with recruitment.

Which school is this?

Indeed it is - and if my perp detector goes off it must be unusually strong. I am usually not very good at detecting a mere whiff, unlike the super GC detectives.

Ah, yes indeed ^. Thank you, carnation. The NPC frown of disapproval seems to be stated in one of the sections of the Unanimous Agreements, 2012 update, viewable at

https://www.npcwomen.org/resources/p...Agreements.pdf

Unless I got the citation mixed up somehow, it's VI. 2. D:

VI.COLLEGE PANHELLENIC ASSOCIATION AGREEMENT
2. Establishment and Regulation of Membership Recruitment

“D. Each College Panhellenic Association shall prohibit the participation of men in membership recruitment and Bid Day activities.”


--------------------------------
NOTE: The npcwomen site's explanation of the Unanioous Agreements indicates that
". . .the unanimous agreements are ratified by the Inter/National President of each fraternity. Her signature is her fraternity’s pledge that every collegiate and alumna member will abide by and honor the unanimous agreements.

Therefore, each College Panhellenic (or Inter-Sorority Council or the equivalent organization) and Alumnae Panhellenic must incorporate the NPC unanimous agreements into its own procedures and methods of operation (constitution, bylaws and membership recruitment rules).

These unanimous agreements are binding on all member fraternities of the National Panhellenic Conference."

Well, then, you are a terrible hostess, because asking certain PNM's about their church will make them uncomfortable immediately.

Just because it's a part of their lives doesn't mean it needs to be discussed at that time.

I'm sure sex is a part of many college students' lives, but you don't go into a recruitment event asking "When was the last time you had sex?" Time and place.
