Sorority forbids leggings, plastic jewelry, and more

Re: Sorority forbids leggings, plastic jewelry, and more

  • That is funny. The pi phis at my school were not like that at all, other houses, yes, but not them. Its kind of interesting how different each chapter really is, and why I am glad I was in what would probably be considered a dorky sorority because I could wear sweatpants.
  • We did pretty much the same thing during Formal Recruitment.  Everyone is supposed to be coordinating and/ or wearing the same thing depending on the night.  Our recruitment chair sent stuff like this out every year.

    You wore sweatpants for Formal Recruitment (Rush)?  That would have been a major no-no for any sorority on our campus.  That's what this dress code appears to be for.

    I was in the kitchen doing prep so never had to meet pledges, had no interest,  and then a recruitment counselor for 2 years, in the cold Chicago winter, I was all about being warm.

  • Wow. I was never in a sorority, but this really makes it seem like they don't want anyone to express their own original style. Sounds crazy if you ask me.

    I would never join a sorority in the first place, but this is certainly one I would not be pledging (rushing?). I don't know the lingo.

  • I agree there is nothing surprising about this if you were in a sorority. I honestly don't think it's a bad thing to have a dress code, this is going a bit too far obviously, but you want everyone looking presentable. God knows that there are some people who need the rules. If you don't tell some of the people exactly what to wear you can have some disasters. For example the time we were doing an event with pledges and I was walking up stairs after a girl and I got a good look at her business, aka short skirt and no undies. I'm all for dress codes.

    This isn't something you would know about it until the following year when it was time to go through recruitment again.  While this dress code is really long and way anal-retentive, I would wager that most sororities at least tell their members what to wear as a lot of recruitment parties are themed.

    Yes, that is more likely the case. Also at recruitment you are kind of selling your sorority to these potential new people. You want all of the girls to want to join your house. Unfortunately, what people look like matters to these new girls, and not everyone is fashionably inclined. Hence the rules. Actually, being in a sorority helped me know what to expect as a hairstylist. No one wants to go to a hairstylist who looks like a mess.

  • I can die happy now that I've seen "gross plastic shizzzz" in print.

    I've always kind of regretted not joining a sorority.  I know they're not all like this (by a long shot) but maybe I'm not so remorseful after all!

    ETA: When I read the actual list it seems like it's this girl who's crazy controlling, not the sorority as a whole.  "I don't like this, I'm weird about that".  Psycho chick!

    This I completely agree with.

    I remember mine on one of the days everyone had to wear black&white and our recruitment chair did a mass order at Express b/c she wanted everyone to wear exactly the same thing except some had black trousers and some had white and vice versa with the tops. It was insane but at least all the other days we were just given guidelines.

  • I was in a sorority, and we had a dress code for rush which makes sense, really...it is sort of the along the same lines as a dress code for a party (ours was more like a tea but similar thinking). 

    Ours was not emailed b/c I am old and email was just emerging as a communication tool (wow, I am showing my age!)

    In a way, I am happy I went thru college before email/Internet, etc became as huge as it is today--lord help me if Facebook existed when I was at school-so happy not to have party pics, etc up for the world to see!!

  • It's unbelievable to me! Is it real?

    Spot on.

    I was never interested in joining a sorority and I feel my life is complete enough not having been in one, but friends and relatives are/have been in them and I'm pretty darn sure none of them would make a list, uh, quite like that.

  • We had more of a "what you can't wear" dress code, especially on pref night.  No jewelry except small earrings, nothing overtly designer (i.e. Tory Burch flats), etc.  

    This recruitment chair sounds like a nut! 

  • I read it on the Fashion board.  So happy not to be there.

  • She's like the Bobby Knight of Sorority Sisters.  I would be kicked out of that sorority so fast my head would spin, what with all the fake plastic shizzz I wear day in and day out, not to mention the glittery eyeliner and denim leggings.

  • Philanthropy

    The Sigma Sigma Sigma Foundation is a non-profit corporation formed in 1992. The Foundation distributes funds for charitable, philanthropic, educational, and other benevolent purposes that focus its programs on the following categories: enhancing the leadership skills of modern-day women, providing grants and scholarships to students, and supporting play therapy programs for hospitalized children. The Sigma Sigma Sigma Foundation centers its latter philanthropic efforts around the theme “SigmaServes Children,” specifically through the Robbie Page Memorial (RPM).
    On September 15, 1951, Robbie Page, the son of Tri Sigma’s National President, died of bulbar polio. At that time, there was no cure or prevention for polio. This prompted Robbie’s parents, Robert and Mary Hasting Holloway Page, to establish a memorial fund in honor of their son. Tri Sigma adopted the Robbie Page Memorial as its official philanthropy in 1954. In its early years, the RPM supported various polio research projects, including the Salk vaccine trials. The RPM now focuses on supporting play therapy for hospitalized children, and providing support for playrooms, libraries, and programs for children undergoing long-term hospital care. Current national efforts are centered in funding fellowships at the Children’s Medical Center in DallasTexas, and in funding graduate assistantships at theUniversity of North Carolina Hospitals in Chapel HillNorth Carolina. The National Therapeutic Recreation Society has recognized Sigma Sigma Sigma for their gracious support of Child Life and Play Therapy Programs.
