Freshman Taylor Vibbert has always wanted to be in a sorority. When she signed up to rush this fall at Western Kentucky University, she was looking forward to the fanfair, house tours and meet-and-greets.
Then she got some bad news: Greek recruitment would be mostly virtual this year.
"That was a bummer," the 18-year-old from Louisville, Ky., said in early August. "Honestly, if I would have known, I probably wouldn't have signed up."
Vibbert was concerned she would be more outgoing in-person than over the computer, but she was willing to see how it goes.
