Bama Recruitment '04

A Bama PNM just left my house and she said that in an orientation meeting, they were told that this year's recruitment would be the biggest ever--and that quota might be 150! Has anyone else heard this?

Wow, that sounds iffy...could they manage to rassle up some other sororities to take the pressure off of that. I mean, 150? For quota??? Everyone would have to be a big sister, or take more than one little!

Believe me it will not be that high....rumors like that run rampanant every year. Believe me my sister is currently in a sorority there and i have many friends both in sororities and going thru rush and i have not heard such a thing. I think that this is not a credible rumor.

Although my school doesn't compare to Bama in terms of rush, we do have a lot of girls coming through (about 1,000). They always tell the chapters after recruitment orientation that quota could be in the 100's. They factor that just by dividing the amount of girls at the orientation by the number of chapters. As we all know, a lot happens during recruitment week; girls drop out or girls are cross cut. We still end up with a large pledge class (around 70) but that's better than 100!

This is just a rumor.

Actually, rush numbers are projected to be around 1200 this year, which is up about 300 girls since last year. But even if all those women went through the entire process, quota would still only be 80 (1200 divided by the # of sororities [15] = 80). If 1500 girls signed up for rush, quota COULD be 100... but there are always lots of people who drop out. I doubt quota will be more than 70 or 75 at the most.

Carnation, tell your PNM to pm me if she has questions--I won't reveal my affiliation to her, but I will be happy to help if she needs anything and I might be able to point her in the direction of some recs from various houses.

back in april i heard it would be in the 70's but i know they were having problems with girls registering online (you were not suppose to be able to but the internet was letting them) anyways i heard it would end up in the 80's ! and for any Bama pnms, there is a form to fill out and you must mail it in to the panhellenic office, so if you registered online i would call and check to make sure they have your info! and best of luck! and i would bring an umbrella each day b/c it will probably rain and a small fan for the time walking to each house b/c tuscaloosa in august isn't much fun with the heat!

Nonono I doubt that.

There's always a TON of girls who drop out. I think it may be high, like 75 at most, but no WAY it would be 100.

Supposedly this is because Auburn is on probation with their accreditation. More girls are coming here next year. Maybe there was an Alabama baby boom in '85-'86? LOL.

I'll do that--no doubt you can clue her in better than I can! She was pretty wide-eyed after being told that quota was 150 and was probably wondering how on earth you could have sisterhood with pledge classes that size.

(Note to all have inquired--No! This is not my daughter! My daughter is not going to Bama!)

This news doesn't surprise me in light of the administration announcing that they want to boost enrollment to (I think) 25,000 within the next few years. More students=more rushees. I think it's an ambitious goal to aim for 150, but they do realize that a good number will drop before actually initiating. Not to mention people who disaffiliate for whatever reason along the way.
Anyone know if the proposed stadium expansion is going to affect Sorority Row??

I have heard that AOPi will be affected, and possibly Theta as well. The rumor is that SDT closed down this summer due to low numbers, so AOPi would probably have first dibs at SDT's house.

When I went through recruitment at Auburn a couple of years ago, it was the largest group ever to go through (1213 girls). I think quota (figured after IWT's; # of girls still invited back/# of sororities) was around 65 with 4 additions. My pledge class was right about 65.
Some girls will have to take on more than one little sister, but for the most part it ought to be pretty much one-on-one matching. I think only 6-7 girls got two littles.

Question

Did SDT close or did they just move out of their house but are still on campus?
