1. Greek life in the south is usually a big deal. Of course, at a state school it is VERY much possible for you to not go Greek and have a great social life. But if going Greek is something you're interested in, go for it.
There's different stereotypes but non of the PNMs can afford to stereotype and think they'll shun or only accept a bid from a particular house.
Greek life and recruitment at Auburn or any SEC/Southern school is HUGE.
4.I don't think it should matter if they have sweethearts or not...Usually the girls who are sweethearts are the ones dating a Fraternity council member or a Greek girl whose Fraternity boyfriend bought her a lavalier
5. Get in shape, groom your eye brows and any facial hair. Know how to apply makeup that enhances your appearance in a natural way
As nasty and inappropriate as it may sound, Greek life at Auburn & Alabama are moreso on the "Strictly white" lines...it's just the social construction. The alumnae want it to remain that way, the fraternity men rather be paired up with a Caucasian girl...I'd still encourage you to go through recruitment, but also know that plenty of white girls will also be cut so you can't blame race, but it could very well be a factor.
I'd still encourage you to try and begin finding sorority alumnae who can write you a letter of recommendation for EACH house. You'll need 1-2 per house.
Make sure that you keep your GPA up. Clean up your FB, change the settings so that they can look you up.
If this isn't the school you're talking about, sorry lol
