August 29, 2018
The beginning of the fall semester marks the end of sorority formal recruitment.
According to the David Ford, coordinator of Nicholls State University Greek life, formal sorority recruitment was a very successful week. Although it was Ford’s first recruitment period, the week was similar to those experienced in the past. Ford said his position is new this year, and with the guidance of Tommy Ponson, director of compliance and ethical development, the transition process went smoothly.
Delta Zeta recruited 34 new members.
Vice President of Membership Abby Wayne said, “Recruitment went very well, and it flowed smoothly from party to party.”
Wayne said she is excited to watch the new recruits give their all to Delta Zeta this semester.
“It was a great chance to meet all the new girls that came to the room, and our new baby turtles, as we call them, are super excited for the new semester,” Wayne said.
Sigma Sigma Sigma
Sigma Sigma Sigma recruited 36 new members.
Former Recruitment Counselor Aimee Prejeant said overall, she thought the girls were positive, energetic and passionate.
“I feel like our girls were truly themselves the entire time,” Prejeant said. “I feel like we have grown from the chapter we were three years ago to the one we are now, and have more participation in recruitment.”
She said Sigma Sigma Sigma wants to keep up the positive energy moving forward with the year.
Phi Mu recruited 40 new members.
According to Danielle Tardo, Phi Mu’s president, “Chapter morale was the highest it has been over the past year.”
Tardo said she thinks they came together this year and worked toward a common goal.
Gamma Phi Beta
Gamma Phi Beta recruited 29 new members.
Marybeth Landry, membership vice president, said considering it being Gamma Phi Beta’s second year on campus, recruitment week went well. She said that this year was a little different having to adjust to being established on campus.
“It was a lot more fun this year because we weren’t looking so much to get numbers, but we were looking for girls genuinely interested in joining Gamma Phi Beta,” Landry said.
