Lauren Edwards, the Assistant Director of Recruitment, shares her thoughts about Fall Formal Recruitment.
Advice: Keep an open mind! The chapter I am in was not the chapter I thought I would be in at the beginning of the process. Immediately after receiving my bid, I became very close with the women in my pledge class and the upperclassmen welcomed me with open arms. I cannot imagine being in any other chapter! Even if it is not your first choice, give it a chance and I promise that you will love it!
Experiences: I knew that because I was from Colorado, KU would provide me the opportunity to meet a lot of new people. I never could have imagined forming the relationships I have with the women in my chapter. It is so cheesy (and cliche) but these are the women who are my best friends, who I always can rely on, and always have fun with. I have so many great memories from college so far, and there is not one where my sisters are not present.
Memories: My favorite recruitment memory was walking on campus my first week of class. Women who I had met throughout recruitment week would see me on campus and wave. It made me feel like I was part of something and not a lost freshman on campus. Even though we were not in the same chapter, it was nice to know that I had friends in the Greek community.
