I have no idea, but would presume the beginning of the school year makes more sense.

Okay, I asked my sister for you & she said in the fall usually around Halloween and the spring usually in February.

I imagine Wikipedia would have all kinds of details into that sort of thing

Yeah, wiki everything. That site is a fanfic lifesaver. (That, and google maps if you're looking at locations)

No need to apologize. But this way in case none of us know, wiki might be of help.

That's what this board is for - to ask questions!  Wikipedia is great for factual information, but it can't describe personal experiences.  Since I don't think any of us rushed for a sorority ourselves, the internet might be more helpful there, but I'm sure there are other things that people here will be able to help you with. :)

I never implied you shouldn't have asked the question. I don't know why you felt compelled to apologize, but you definitely don't have anything to be sorry for.

Often Wikipedia will have step by step breakdowns of things that are often beneficial to compliment what we all might know. Like Julie said, it's great to get the personal experience but if you're trying to make it really accurate, which it seems like you are, then Wikipedia is a valuable resource.

I do a good chunk of my fic research on Google in addition to personal experiences.

I always apologize for everything, I'm not offended at all...it's just how I am. Thanks girls. I thought I was being annoying asking so many questions.
