    If you mean Los Angeles and not Louisiana, this is going to be harder. Many of the California Panhellenic Associations just aren't as active. I would certainly start by sending them an e-mail to see if they have any events (generally in the late spring or early summer) for prospective rushees. You wouldn't be attending their regular events, which are strictly for sorority alums.
    A great source of information on every aspect of sorority recruitment is the website GreekChat.com. Look under the topic "sorority recruitment".
    An important point is that sorority recruitment (and the sorority experience) varies widely depending on the college you are planning to attend. Do not get discouraged reading the stories of women rushing in Southern schools, which are unusually competive.
    If you know the school you will be attending in the fall, look at the website for that school's panhellenic association (not for recs, only alums can write recs, but for information about the schedule and chapters). Then look at the individual chapter websites to get a sense of their activities, sports and social life.
    Finally, I'm happy to answer whatever questions I can.

    Hi, I did a CC search for "sororities" and a thread you replied to popped up. It seems that you know a lot about sororities, I was wondering if you could help me out?

    you mentioned that a good way of getting a recommendation letter is to look up your local panhellenic chapter. I tried looking for one in LA and this came up: www.laapa.net

    is that the right one? and if so, do I just email them and ask if I can participate in some of their activies? will they think its odd, or do many girls actually do this?
