.... (interesting screen name), scroll down to the links at the bottom of this page, read the stickies at the top of each of the NPHC forums and talk to members you know IRL. Posting on a public forum is not the way to get the information you're asking about.

Please use the search function and read the sticky threads at the top of each NPHC forum. As you will find, membership-related questions will not be answered. To get an understanding on why particular GC members chose their organization, again, use the search function.

sigh, can someone make ME a mod?

I can only state something trite and flippant--but I will try very hard to refrain and live and let live. Maybe I can ignore it and it will go away!

You need a supermod to handle this

I would not want her searching anything in our forum. Because you can see she will NEVER understand it--it still will go over her head.

If you're having a hard time choosing which organization to pursue, you're not ready.

I don't want to know anything about membership intake, pledging, meaning of letters, or anything of that sort.... which seems to be the root of questions that will NEVER be answered and I understand why.
The title of this thread says "pleadge"--obviously that is Membership Intake in NPHC language. The NPHC Sororities do not discuss membership intake on GC. There are reasons why we do not/cannot/will not.

Now there are MYRIADS of "how did you choose which one" threads on GC. Search is your friend. Do one. When you post such questions, I feel it is laziness and uncaring about what my Sorority is all about.

When you post such questions after we have clearly stated what we will do, I feel it is beyond ignorance it is being trite, uncouth and belittling to me, my Sorors, my Sorority sisters and my fellow GLO's.

I am sorry, but based on your continuance of this course of action, please, I beg you, do not choose my Sorority, you will not enjoy it and do not have to constitution for it. Maybe you fit in some other group--just not a sorority.

I'm confused. I thought that's what the search function was for.

Yeah, you're NOT going to get an answer, no matter how many times you try and ask.

I have become friends with people from all of the NHPC sororities, but I want to explore my options more than reading the national websites, which I have already read.

But you are asking questions about membership when you are unclear about which one you want to join. Going to 1-2 events per year will not assist you in membership while you are in college. Getting a good GPA will and doing well in your major will assist you in membership.

That tidbit of information is freely available. Even BET did a better job than with those small statements. But is it upto you to determine which one best fits your ideals. That is what freedom is all about... Be an adult.

I don't think it did but if anyone does have any input on how they chose, feel free to post.
You're awfully bloody stubborn as well as rude. AKA_Monet and LatinaAlumna have answered you ad nauseum. You choose not to listen, your business, but I'm calling shenanigans on you.

Pledging has been outlawed since the 1990's. The NPHC sororities and their affiliates now considered hazing per the statues adopted by convention. When we now hear the word pledge, we think Membership Intake Process. Process being a keyword, because it is a journey towards membership.

We are never beg for membership...

Tell me, what school do you go to and what is your GPA?

First off, I am considering everything that they are saying because they have already been through this process. It just seems like I have to be very defensive and careful in everything that I say
