Alpha Gamma Chapter—University of Alabama Recruitment information from Meredith Purser, CCD:

Our workshop is August 2-9. If anyone wanted to send snacks, notes of encouragement, etc., the girls would really appreciate it. If there are any local alumnae with

recruitment know-how, they can contact me to see how they can be used! Recruitment is from August 10-16 (two days each for Ice Water Teas, Philanthropy, and Skit, one day for Preference. We are only allowed 15 mothers/ alumnae in the house at any time during recruitment party days, so if anyone wants to help, they can just call or email me to find a spot! We'd love to have them! Bid Day is August 17 at 10am. This summer, we really need someone to make new ritual garb. We are holding dual ceremonies now

Beta Xi—Auburn University Information available from the Beta Xi website nt Monday-Tuesday, August 12-13: Ice Water Teas Wednesday-Thursday, August 1415: Philanthropy Days Friday, August 16: Skit Day Saturday, August 17: Preference Day Sunday, August 18 at 10am: Bid Day Delta Zeta is very excited about 2013 Fall Recruitment! If you have any questions please feel free to contact Emily McBride, Recruitment Chair, at

Please go to the website and read the information provided on Delta Zeta Criteria for Membership

because of our pledge class sizes (120 this year probably!), and we are short on our "clothing" since we have to have a total of 18 SETS! We have 16 sets in good condition, but we could use a few for backup. I would like to have 46 new sets made for the fall. I can provide the pattern and instructions if someone wants to help out with that. I am also looking for someone in the Tuscaloosa/Birmingham area that could serve as Ritual Advisor. It requires availability to attend rituals and practices in fall and spring, so long-distance advising would be difficult in most cases.
