    University of Miami's Delta Gamma sorority recruitment video

    Million dollar yachts, bikinis, rooftop pool parties and what appear to be drone shots of speed boat acrobatics along nearly every waterway in Miami.

    No, this isn't the latest big-budget music video filmed in South Florida. It's a recruitment video for the University of Miami's Delta Gamma sorority.

    The professionally produced video was made with the help of Artec Media and features the sisters of Delta Gamma partying on two separate boats, making the sign of "The U" while casually partying on Miami rooftops, and forming a human anchor - the sorority's symbol - while hanging out at the beach.

    The video also shows the young women hanging out on the Coral Gables campus donning various Delta Gamma paraphernalia.

    Since the video was posted to YouTube on Wednesday, it has more than 200,000 views and counting, and has been picked up by publications like Jezebel and UPROXX.

    It's not the first time a sorority recruitment video has made headlines.

    Last year, the Alpha Phi sorority at the University of Alabama faced criticism over what critics called a lack of diversity in their professionally-produced recruitment video. That video racked up more than 500,000 YouTube videos before it was taken down.

    According to the University of Miami's Division of Student Affairs, more than 2,400 students participate in the schools 30 fraternities and sororities, and Greeks hold roughly 80 percent of leadership positions on campus.
