As said earlier in the thread though, just because it's allowed doesn't mean it's next to unheard of for some groups! If you're a grad student that wants to rush and keep this in mind... then more power to you and good luck.

Graduate Students can't join in some schools

I just started my first year of grad school and really wanted to join a sorority. Unfortunately I learned from the Office of Sorority and Fraternity Affairs that graduate students were not allowed to participate in formal recruitment and could not pledge NPC sororities, either

If there are sororities at your school that admit grad students as pledges, you should be permitted to go through rush.

I think some schools have the clause about you must be enrolled for an undergraduate degree to go through recruitment. IMO if an NPC chapter colonizes at a school with that restriction, they need to deal with it and not try to get around the system.

This has been discussed on GC that just because an NPC allows graduate students to join, there are school at which grad students don't have a chance of joining. Maybe the school realizes that that is the case and has that policy?

There are also schools where girls who are over a size 6 don't have a chance of joining. The school can't prevent them from rushing.

If you're not in an NPC you should be permitted to rush - if they disallow certain groups from rushing that aren't disallowed by the sororities' national rules (i.e. men) the school could conceivably find itself in a nasty lawsuit.

Exactly. My alma mater is not in the south, but I cannot imagine the houses there pledging a grad student either. Just because an EO allows it, doesn't mean it will happen on a particular campus. And I'd venture a guess that it never happens on campuses with competitive rushes.

I was in a new national system in California and I still can't imagine a grad student being offered at bid at my school. I just don't think the undergrads would feel a grad student would fit in with the chapter, no matter how wonderful a person she is. She's already "been there, done that" in regards to college and might not find it very enjoyable to socialize with women (and men) years younger.

Smile some more info

Hi everyone,
I just wanted to let you all know that the man from Greek life got in touch with me. He contacted all the HQs of all the NPC orgs on campus and learned that the vast majority of them do allow graduate students to join. So, if a grad student wanted to go through recruitment she could. I'm waiting to learn which sororites do and which ones do not allow grad students. I will put up another post when I find out.

Thank goodness he did that! Very wise of him to have that info.

Please don't. You're just going to start drama. There does not need to be a list of which GLOs accept graduate students, and which do not. You're going to run into "Well, XYZ State U does, but XYZ at U of State has chapter bylaws against it and ABC does, but only in special circumstances...etc...". Get the information for yourself, and rush if you want to, but leave the posting of GLO policy to the GLO members on this board (if THEY even want to post it).

She can certainly post a list, but it would probably be wise to add a qualifier which says something to the effect "While there is nothing against the national by-laws of graduate students participating in recruitment in the following list of GLO's, some individual chapters may not allow it. Further, some colleges and universities may prohibit all grad students from participating in recruitment."

Let me be clearer: I don't want my GLO on a list either way. Whether we allow Grad students or not does not need to be posted on GC. I personally know whether we do or do not allow Grad students to join, and if I wanted everyone else to know, I would post that info. Other GLO members here have openly posted things about Grad rush at their GLO, and that's fine, that's their business. It's not yours, scarleteriberry's, or anyone else's besides other members of my GLO's business to post whether we accept Grads or not. If 33 girl decides she wants to post the info, and other people quote her, I'm fine with that. But if someone from that GLO does not offer the info to begin with, I don't think it belongs on GC.

Whether some individual chapters "allow" it or not is their business- if it is in their public bylaws, fine, but it may be an internal policy. Or it may just be that that chapter doesn't want that particular grad student, which is their right to decide PRIVATELY.
