Cool

There will be one, possibly 3 AU rush threads!

Alright, it looks like my grand SEC rec total is:

9 at UGA
2 at Auburn
1 at LSU
1 at Tennessee

I'm hoping for at least one to be a Delta Gam on bid day!

I had a tough time finding recs for my daughter last year, too (not SEC, ACC) and I was in a large Greek system in college with friends in all different houses. It was very time consuming, and I sent out so many emails to random groups like my Sunday School class, PTA, etc. to find them. On the other hand, when my daughter's friend needed help to get recs for deferred recruitment at an SEC school, I had the contacts for her in minutes. The ease of obtaining recs definitely depends on where you go and what houses they have. (and who you know, of course!)

The girls from our kids' school tend to congregate amongst three or four different sororities at UGA, so I've never been asked to write a rec for anybody even though I have an "alum" sticker on my car. The funny thing is that most of them also pledge the same houses at Auburn and Alabama, too.

It's funny because where I'm from (an Atlanta suburb), it seems that many girls, no matter what college they attend, end up in one particular sorority. It's funny how things work out sometimes

Literally everyone on my street who went to college was/is in a fraternity or a sorority. The best part is, no two are in the same one!

Nope! In fact, from my HS graduating class, I only know of one other DG

I just wanted to let everyone know that DPhiE at UGA will be participating in recruitment. I know some were confused to whether they would be present, but yes there will be part of this year's recruitment. Best of luck to all of the houses as well!!!

Good work, southernyankee! I hope you keep us posted, because I can't possibly be the only one hoping your daughter finds the sorority home of her dreams!!
I agree. Definitely a "the correct way to get recs" thread.....

News from the front...

Yesterday in the Athens Target, I overheard the following:

"I don't understand why we all have to come back for work week. I've already gone through it twice."

I restrained myself from telling the girl how it was back in the day, with full-frills rush with two rounds of musical skits, head-to-toe completely matching costumes for three of four rounds, including matching bridesmaid dresses for Pref. Did I mention cleaning out bourbon barrels for the Pirates of Penzance skit? Building a dock in the basement? Matching bridesmaid dresses? In blue dotted swiss? Trying to find capri pants in the 80's for the Wiz skit? Having to run out for new shoes after failing shoecheck, due to wearing them down practicing the dances? Buying another Lanz, Malia, or Lily sundress in August because someone else bought one the same pattern as you, on the day that panhellenic rules forbade us from matching?

Oh - there was a quickchange in the Chorus Line skit. We wore regular practice leotards on stage, then changed to gold lame' and ran out into 90 degree heat for the final porch song. I always made it, but sometimes my shoes didn't.

(I'm getting old)

Amen to all that! Rush in the seventies, when I was in school, was all the way, every night! And we all loved every minute of it!!
