Sorority Enrollment

The number of recruits that sororities can accept at the University of Colorado in Boulder is at a four-year low this semester.

The university made an agreement with the sororities last year to defer rush until this spring.

It was held in January, one week before classes started.

CU's director of Greek Affairs, John Henderson, says the university limited the number of new members, basing it on how many women completed the weeklong recruitment process and intended to join.

Each of the school's ten sisterhoods are allowed to recruit 35 new members this semester, a little more than what they could take in the fall semester of 2002.

Henderson says sororities around the nation traditionally see less new members when they have a delayed rush, but numbers tend to rebound the following year.
