This project was conducted to examine the release figures method of recruitment and its effects on different organizations. I attempted to address the impact recruitment can have on already initiated women as well as potential new members who are going through the recruitment process. Then I chose to examine partially structured recruitment practices already in place followed by describing the release figures method which is the newest method of sorority recruitment.
