Grant Sikes, who is a biological male, took to Instagram to whine about rejections from the various sororities on campus during Alabama Rush Week.
The transgender was rejected by all University of Alabama sororities during their student recruitment process, according to social media posts from the student.
Sikes wrote on Instagram that nearly 20 campus sorority chapters on campus denied entry.
“Unfortunately, this chapter is closed. This recruitment journey is over for me,” Sikes lamented. “Being dropped from my last house this morning during primary recruitment at the University of Alabama doesn’t come as a surprise considering out of the almost 20 chapters – I was dropped by every single one except 2 before day 1.”

“I’m hopeful of a future where everyone is welcomed for just being themselves – everywhere,” Sikes stated. “If you are going through a hard time today, remember that life is too short to ponder on the things lost. Choose happiness & always look for the positive things throughout life. Move on. See the good. See the bad. Hope for the best. Brave the worst.”
Via a TikTok video, Sikes declared, “I’m sad because I wanted to be part of a sisterhood and, more than that, a community.”
As the transgender documented the recruitment journey during Alabama Rush Week, millions of views were racked up on TikTok.
Sikes joins Adam Davies, who is another transgender that was previously rejected by all 12 sororities at Northwestern University, according to the New York Post.

The Daily Mail is claiming that the university instructed its students and even their parents to not share videos from the rush events online ostensibly due to situations such as the one involving Sikes. Those that dared to speak out allegedly faced being blacklisted.
The first part of the rush process is known as Convocation Day, where new recruits get a chance to meet active members.
The women then participate in Philanthropy Day, where potential members learn about each sorority’s various volunteer programs.
The third event is called Sisterhood Day, where those seeking to become sorority girls tour each sorority house. Pref Day comes next and the girls get a chance to speak with the members of the two sororities that they like the most.
Finally, the last day is known as Bid Day, where freshmen are told whether or not they’ve been asked to join the houses.
Nearly 8,000 of the women who attend the University of Alabama are involved in the Panhellenic culture. The University of Alabama is reportedly the most desired sorority school in the nation.

“Joining a chapter makes this extremely large university a lot smaller and can become a great support system for you throughout your college career,” the school’s Panhellenic community’s website boasts. “Getting plugged in makes all the difference, and joining a chapter is the best way to find a home away from home. Basically, you have an incredible four years ahead of you so why not start it off by going Greek!”
According to the school, the cost per semester for new sorority members is between $4,200 and $5,000. That includes a chapter meal plan, local chapter fees, national fees, and pledging and initiation fees. If you want to live in a sorority house, it’s between $7,500 & $10,000 per semester.
