With Greek Life being the most important tradition at A&M, formal sorority recruitment can cause many Potential New Members to panic. Luckily, The Mugdown is here to provide tips so that you may end up with the sorority you want. After spending hours analyzing recruitment videos we have created a list of tips applicable to any sorority at Texas A&M.
First impressions don’t matter. Each sorority will already have their mind made up about you before you even enter the house as they have spent the past week stalking you on every form of social media.
It’s not about who you are; it’s about who they think you are. Why be yourself when you can be someone completely different?
Being on Blinn TEAM means you must be ready to be cut from almost every house. Remember, you’re only considered half an Aggie.
If an active tells you that she has been praying for you and God himself said you need to be there, she is leading you on to make her sorority have a higher demand of girls wanting to be there. Drop them from your list of houses as soon as possible.
Make sure to talk about all the partying and drinking you did in high school. This will show the actives that you’re fun, outgoing and mature enough for real college parties.
Dress to Impress. With over a thousand girls going through recruitment, be sure to wear an outfit that will allow you to stand out. This is the perfect time to test out your new Halloween costume because you can gauge the reactions of so many different girls.
When you walk into the houses all the girls will be shouting their chants. It is a wonderful moment displaying the chapter’s unity and spirit. If you are given the opportunity, be sure to ask the most popular chant, the one about drinking.
Be sure to ask in detail about all the philanthropy work each chapter does. Charity work is part of the argument that got your parents to agree with spending thousands of dollars in dues, after all.
Take complete control as soon as you walk into each house. Show the girls you are serious and will not be intimidated by them. They must fear you before they can respect you.
If you don’t like a sorority, walk out the door. It allows for both you and the active to have the same conversation, one less time.
If all else fails, preference the one sorority you want and attempt a suicide bid or, worse, join a women’s organization.
