Preview Day, Spring Workshop March the 16th, and Detractors!by Pat Grant on 03/10/14
March, so far, has been a fun and busy 'almost' spring month! Our weather in Alabama has been so lovely the last few days, we are lulled into believing that finally spring has arrived! All the experts say winter is not over, but Mother Nature appears to be contradicting the experts! With the landscape starting to bloom evey where, it is hard not to believe that spring has sprung! Even as unpredictable as March can traditionally be in our state, luckily this past Saturday graced us with another gorgeous and sunny day.
Saturday was Preview Day for Potential New Memebers (PNMs) at the Univeristy of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. It was a lovely day to enjoy walking from sorority house to sorority house! I secretly suspect the increase rate in placement for PNMs going through Sorority Recruitmen at the U of AL is significantly influenced by Preview, a miniature glimpse into the recruitment process. This little foretaste of knowledge and insight seems to be serving the U of A Panhellenic well. Congratulations on a job well done ladies!
We had the pleasure of meeting with several of our Bama-bound RB clients before and after Preview Day. I enjoyed sharing insights and answering questions, while Paige was occupied digging around in local PNM's closets and local stores, all in an effort to help answer the age old question of "what do I wear?" It is always fun and rewarding to spend time with our RB clients! Congratulations to you too ladies, this was an experience worth going through to aid in your preparation for Bama's fall recruitment! I really wish more campuses, especially larger campuses with 30,000+ students, would consider hosting a "Preview Day." I believe it really helps everyone, sororities, PNMs, and especially the parents!
Of course, something else that can help PNMs is attending our workshops! We have our only spring open group EXTREME workshop coming up this Sunday, March the 16th. We will be at the Emmet O'Neal library in the Crestline section of Birmingham. The address for you GPSers is 50 Oak Street, Birmingham, AL 35213. Our workshop is in the community meeting room. You can't miss us! Look for the hot pink! We hope we see you, but if you can't make this workshop, check out our website for other options.
Those options include, our PERSONALIZED workshop on April the 6th, This is limited to 12 people (or 6 Mom/daughter couples) and we only have 4 spots left. The ideal candidate for this workshop will have attended at least one other Rushbiddies workshop, or had at least one private 'mini' session with us. If you are interested in any of our services, please do not hesitate to sign our guest book or email us and let us hear from you!
Private 'mini' sessions are always available. We do evaluate and tailor them for what your specific needs are for your sorority recruitment and preparation. As always, we only want to help our clients succeed. I truly do believe knowledge is power, so don't remain powerless and uninformed. Get informed! ,
And speaking of uninformed, of course, like anything that people don't understand, we always have our detractors. That doesn't bother me one bit, they are just uninformed! I always find it intriguing that most of the detractors are men! lol! I always hope people will be open-minded enough to try to understand the process, especially before they make judgments. However, maybe it is a little like this psuedo-spring weather. We hope, with time and knowledge, it will eventually evolve into understanding the real thing! Blessings sweet friends, Pat
