FALL RECRUITMENT FOR SORORITIES HITS COLLEGE CAMPUSES
Sororities and fraternities across the United States are preparing for new students to open a bright year of academic work, scholarship, leadership, philanthropy, and the opportunity to create life-long friendships which is a part of the human spirit.
Recruitment for sororities means organized gatherings of collegiate women who express an interest in the goals of the specific groups, meet and visit the active membership, and make a commitment to follow positive actions to reflect the highest qualities of their group.
Alumnae contribute to the process by writing reference letters for participants who show evidence of possessing the potential for quality membership. They assist backstage with informal parties designed to get to know the potential new members. They make monetary donations to help defray the costs of hosting the parties. They bring food. They supply adviser support and back-up. They bring enthusiasm. They bring the conviction that young people just out of high school can benefit from a positive environment with friends and alumnae supporting their needs along the way.
Gamma Beta Chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma at the University of New Mexico will be participating in these Recruitment Days from August 17-20, 2008. KappaKeepers.com will show you some of the life within the Greek Community of sororities and fraternities and some of the activities of the Kappa Kappa Alumnae who work with these young women to find the brightest and best-adjusted young people to carry on the membership legacy which has functioned continuously in the US since 1870 and its founding.
