Am I reading this right?

There's a Sig Ep colony opening up at my school in fall, and this is on the SPE national website:

Quote:
Perhaps the most notable distinction between SigEp’s BMP and the stereotypical “frat” is there is no pledging. Instead, members must be referred or recommended to SigEp by a Clarion faculty or staff member, varsity athletic coach, SigEp alumnus, or a prominent student organization on campus.
Is this just for the colonizing class, or is this all the time? i.e., if someone goes through rush they have to have a "rec" to join? Plus, what if the faculty don't want to recommend people (i.e. they don't want Greeks to grow) - or is this just a rubber stamp? Help the confused girl...thanks.

I'm curious as well.

Many NPHC orgs either require recommendations from active members, community members, faculty, or all of the above.

We require that all NMs have an alumna rec before initiation eventhough PNMs aren't (always) required to have a rec to get a bid.

Actually I got an answer on this...so moe.ron if you want to delete the thread go ahead. The "recs" are only used for the colonizing period and even if there's a guy who doesn't have one, the national officers will check him out and if they like him he's in.

The thing that confused me is it was sounding like the Masons, i.e. you couldn't apply, you have to wait for someone to recommend you, and I was wondering how on earth a colony was going to get off the ground that way.
