thanks for your reply. i attend oakwood college in huntsville and they are really anti greek (for which ihave not recieved a valid reason). first of all we would like to know whow to conduct membership intake while keeping up the standards we have set for ourselves. we would like a certain type of woman for our organisation.
I go to Oakwood too. Are you in Eta Xi Mu? I heard about that one. I am in Zeta Lambda Psi, at Oakwood. it's important to keep up with the standards of the organization, however you have to make sure that intake is not easy and do not allow anyone to join your organization, especially at Oakwood. You know how it is. Since, I am a Zeta the way we do things is first of all we do not haze. It is not christian like to treat someone wrongfully and then ask them to be your sister. Since you go to Oakwood, we can probably meet and I could give you more info. Oh, my the way welcome to the Greek Family at Oakwood. It is also important to have good relationships with the other GLOs because you will build up your organization by positive comments from the other GLOs. The Zetas are cool with every GLO at Oakwood. We have built friendships with them and they know that we are not in competion with them. It is important to know what your GLO stands for but be careful not to put down any other GLO because it was not turn out good.
Back to the topic of intake, since your GLO is new make sure you have everything set up before taking in mew members. Examples, consitiution, colors, meaning of letter/colors, handsign, call, intake policies, officers, philantropy, etc.
New members want to make sure that they are joining something where they can invest their time.
I can tell you more about intake but not in a open forum. See ya around campus.
