11 Thoughts Of A Rusher During Rush Week

Don't be fooled by the pretty dresses and big smiles. Here's what's really running through our minds throughout sorority recruitment.

11 Thoughts Of A Rusher During Rush Week

I know it's hard to believe for the vast majority of the population, but sorority recruitment isn't at all similar to the way it is usually perceived. Rush week, as seen in movies or TV shows, is usually portrayed as a time for shallow sorority girls to put on a show to get the girls they want to join their chapter -- I know, super fake and absolutely ridiculous, right? However, there's a whole lot more to sorority recruitment than the superficial preconceptions. A lot of hard work, hours of planning, and genuine care goes into this highly anticipated week. It's such a short amount of time to recruit girls they think will fit best in their chapter. There's a lot of pressure and even frustration, but it is all worth it in the end. So, it's time to be blunt and honest. Here’s what is really going through our minds during rush week - despite how euphoric and put together we may appear to be on social media.

1. Dear Lord, give me the strength to not freeze up and forget how to articulate words whilst talking to this girl.

2. Also, Lord, after you help me talk, please help me lead a decent conversation.

2. I. Need. Caffeine.

3. Is it just me or is it hot in here? Uh-oh, are those sweat stains? SOS.

4. I really wish I had invested in a more comfortable pair of heels for this whole week.

5. Not to mention, I wish I knew how to walk in heels.

6. I’m hungry.

7. This girl I’m rushing probably thinks I’m a spaz, I'm probably more nervous than her.

8. What time is it even? Oh, okay, we've only been here an hour...

9. Why do I have that anxious feeling in my stomach that I used to get before track meets?

10. Yay, we’re done with parties for the day! Now we get to go home! Oh, wait, we don’t? We’ll be here until midnight? Great.

11. This has been the longest week of my life and I don't know how I maintained my sanity through it all, but seeing the new girls run to us on Bid Day has made it all worth it after all.
