Ole Miss Gamma Chis Give Up Social Media

     Ole Miss prides itself for a thriving Greek community. The University of Mississippi Panhellenic Council is responsible for all potential new members and their recruitment experience. In order to assist in the process of recruitment, members from each sorority are encouraged to apply as a Gamma Chi. Gamma Chis are the women behind the scenes during formal recruitment. They manage a freshman dormitory floor of potential new members, guide the girls before, during, and after rush, and oversee a fair and beneficial recruitment process for all those involved. However, Gamma Chis not only sacrifice their Greek affiliation during rush, but their access to social media as well. In order to conceal ties with a specific chapter on campus, Gamma Chis are required to deactivate their Facebook accounts and make their Twitter profiles private. One could argue that our generation uses smart phones and savvy laptops in a productive way, but for the most part, college girls are constantly tweeting and Facebook stalking. While sacrificing these habits may be a challenge, the Gamma Chi experience makes it all worthwhile. To gain personal insight, view the video below:
