"Superficial" PNMs and Recruitment Numbers? (Dartmouth)

Dartmouth's student paper has an article that mentions the possible effect of stereotypes and "superficial" attitudes on sorority recruitment:

http://www.thedartmouth.com/article....=2007011201010

Excerpts from longer article:

. . . This fall, 57 of the 291 women who entered recruitment -- approximately 20 percent -- withdrew, compared to about eight percent of women during the previous fall.

. . . [The Panhellenic vice president of recruitment] believes that Fall term's high dropout rate was due to potential new members being unwilling to consider joining certain sororities.

"Unfortunately, stereotypes of the sororities play a significant role in the potential new members' decisionmaking," Origel said.

. . . [a Dartmouth greek life staff member] also echoed Origel's comments, emphasizing that preconceived notions often affect women's decisions to drop out of recruitment.

"My sense is that there are women that go through recruitment who already have their minds made up," she said. . . .


[The Panhellenic vice president] said. "They need to be secure enough, confident enough and not so superficial that they automatically eliminate sororities they do not consider to be popular."
