Recruits swarmed outside Wallace Residence Hall Thursday, taking their place in the University of Idaho's biggest sorority recruitment in more than 20 years. “To see our numbers up so high is very encouraging,” Matthew Kurz, UI director of sorority and fraternity life, said. “There's a lot of demand to be a part of these organizations.”About 350 women passed through the check-in, a 14 percent increase from last year. Demand has been so high, the Delta Zeta sorority opened a house in spring 2011, increasing the total number of sororities on campus from nine to 10. While fraternity recruitment numbers have not been as dramatic, they have been on the rise. Kurz projected this will result in three more fraternity chapters in the next three years/Estelle Gwynn, Moscow-Pullman Daily News. More here.
