Subject: Thank You from DU!
I'm not sure if you remember me but I am from the Delta Upsilon Chapter at Grand Valley State; we met during the private consultations you held when you visited campus through IFC. Rush has been over for some time now but I wanted to shoot you a thank you for your advice. Like you suggested, my chapter switched our focus from larger events and used more casual, informal recruitment methods that played to our strengths better. Our goal was to take 15-20 new members and we ended up with 19menat bid night which is the largest we've ever taken in the chapter's short history. The most new members we've had at bid night previously was only10 so we're pretty happy especially considering that we had a very limited budget for rush this fall.Personally I believe that we could have even gone as high as 22 or 24 had we taken a risk with some snap bids but with only 21 active members we decided to settle at 19 quality,future DUs.
Thank you again,from my chapter and myself, for your help!
