Hey GC:

One of my sisters is a graduate student and a sister in my GLO. Here's how I see her experience:

She is one of the oldest girls in the group so she has learned certain life lessons that the other sisters haven't- i.e. how to budget etc etc. Because she is one of the "newer girls", she has to be careful how she challenges things because the sisters who have been in the sorority easily get defensive if she gets too vocal. She also has more focus on work, classes are harder so sometimes the sisters don't understand why she can't stay out till 4am all the time or come to every event. She can't always put the sorority first and on occasions it frustrates the other sisters.

On the other hand, its good for her cos she takes life too seriously. The sorority keeps her fun side alive and helps her maintain balance between being a grown up and being a collegiate.

Having met her I understand why NPC doesn't often invite graduate students into their chapters- there is a huge difference from UG's and Grad's and that can definitely cause conflict. However, I wish some of the other groups hadn't cut her so quickly. If they would have given her a chance, they would have seen what a great addition she could be for the sorority. In conclusion, maybe the best way to get graduate students involved is through CR. Rush isn't long enough for sororities to really understand why a grad would want to join a sorority. If the grad tried the CR approach she and the GLO might find the most ideal match.

That's great for her, and your chapter, but it wouldn't work everywhere.
