Refer to yourselves as Kappa (or Beta if that floats your boat) rather than going by the letters.

And the off campus groups are another whole issue, but trust me, the NPC groups are probably bashing their heads in over them too.
I've received a lot of helpful information. Thank you for being patient with me. I still have a lot to learn in this game.

Correct and I blame unnecessarily patient GCers for why lazy people keep coming to GC for answers when they actually have non-GC sources for information if they were humble enough to pursue and receive the information.

You're not on your own. You may not be a NPC member, but you do have a national headquarters. Talk to them. Stop spreading your dirty laundry on the intarwebz.

Now I am heading back over to the umbrella to borrow AOII_Angel's cell phone. Gotta make a call to my headquarters to find out why my free credit card, bracelet and diamond earrings were lost in the mail.

Your city doesn't prohibit sorority houses.

This is how I know you're dumb. This cannot be for real.

I have nothing to say. *smiling and waving at everything soaring over my head* I just want to get in on this beach umbrella. It's been a long day. Daiquiris, anyone?

Call my HQ while you're at it...my freebies are 18 years late. LOL.

Seriously, though. NPC membership doesn't have those kinds of perks. Yes, some GLOs do have the option of getting a credit card with their logo on it, but you have to pay the bill. If your "rush crush" is dumb enough to pledge XYZ just because she can get an XYZ credit card, you should be counting your blessings that KBG doesn't have that option! Also, I agree with what AOEforme said, your chapter should really adjust how you target women for membership. Competing head to head against NPC chapters isn't in your best interest. Highlighting the advantages of not being NPC, aiming for a membership number that works for you (not necessarily chapter total for the campus) and looking for women who would be interested in a group that may be less expensive (since you don't have such high national fees as an NPC would) through informal recruitment would help.

well shoot. I didn't make the cut at the Tiffany necklace/bracelet/diamond earrings/violet volcano/catsuit/credit card chapters. Oh well. BUT, where I'm from, beach umbrellas are mandatory, and we have blenders.

For smoothies. Of course. What else?

SISTER. And you have some nerve saying that we're not looking hard enough. You don't know what goes on on my campus that prohibits from getting the results that we would like. My sister wear our letters everyday even though we're blatantly outnumbered. I don't think you know what it's like to have people say to your face that they're pledging Delta or Alpha before they're even eligible to apply to greek life. Excuse me if I've been sounding like a total monster on GC, but it's painful to hear people say that they won't join us strictly because we're not NPC. We're in the middle of a catch 22. They say we're too small but then people won't join us. As of right now I have 13 and as of next year there will be 5 of us left. The other sororities are just begging that we get kicked off campus because so that they can satisfy their quota. The shallow reasons that people DO give for joining an NPC is hysterical. If I join I get a free Tiffany's necklace. If I join I get to wear their letters. If I join I get a free credit card (I kid you not) But nope...nobody wants any sisterhood...just a new pair of diamond earrings. So come on. Let me have it. Shame on me for reaching out for a little help from the Greek community.
It's entirely possible that you are pleasant in person, but on GC, you're coming off as a nasty, bitter bitch. All I'm saying is that, if you're presenting yourself as hostile toward NPC groups and defeatist about the future of your own org, it's no wonder that women aren't interested in getting to know your group.

As others have said, the issue is NOT what other sororities are or aren't doing. You're going to have to accept that there are women who simply do not want to join your sorority. These are not the women you should spend your time courting.

The larger issue, as has been stated, is the lack of unity and motivation within your chapter. That issue has to be resolved first, before y'all can form a united front in the matter of recruiting quality women who want to join your sorority.

As I said, I know exactly what you're going through. You need to take a step back (no one is telling you to "off" yourself) and understand how horrible your initial post on this topic really was.

You're on here talking to men and women who have devoted their lives to their organizations, through thick and thin, and you're asking us to help you jump ship because the going has gotten rough.

1) My sorority had been local years before they picked KBG. And don't bring my other sisters into this because like I said from the beginning, I REALLY DIDN'T KNOW! I mean, Phi Mu came to our school last year with the intention of colonizing. But we're still here as KBG so we're not using anyone.

2) You're making up things that aren't even there. What organization is going to colonize with my sisters just because one person wants it? You probably come from some sorority with like 150 girls in your cutesy sorority house and Barbie dream cars. Bitch, outta my face. I work hard for my girls and I want them to have what rightly belongs to them. People who are already sitting under the big beach umbrella that is NPC wouldn't understand. Isn't your job as a moderator to make sure that I get my questions answered? All I wanted was a simple question answered. So thanks for nothing, Rude Ass Bitch.

And as I recall, the ladies of the local didn't exactly exemplify the high ideals that are expected of Phi Mus. If one of the 26 NPCs came to your campus (Phi Mu) only to be disappointed by the way in which many of those women acted, why would any other NPC want a liability like that? Ask yourself that!

That was a different sorority hon. http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=72635640049

Just one more reason why KBG should probably get on "Beta" as a local nickname at K_K's school.

Hahahaha, just when I was going to come on and say "disregard"...thanks, though! Yeah, apparently those ladies didn't live up to the ideals of Phi Mu.

Wait, what happened with Phi Mu and the local? I am intrigued/curious.
