10 Items Every Girl Going Through Sorority Rush Needs In Her Purse To Survive The Week

Make this week as fun as possible for yourself.

10 Items Every Girl Going Through Sorority Rush Needs In Her Purse To Survive The Week

Rush week is highly weighed on first impressions. I think the personality of the girl overrides how she looks, but I cannot speak for all people. You want to look your best so that you can feel your best and let your personality shine. Also, the rush isn't that deep so go into it with a positive attitude and have fun!

1. Blotting pads

Don't walk up in the house looking like a potato chip. Blot the T-zone even when you think you don't need it.

2. Lipstick

Make sure it's poppin' before each house.

3. Small fan

Even if it isn't hot where your college is the chapter rooms will be. So many girls in a small space. It's nice to give yourself a nice breeze between houses.

4. Mints

NOT GUM. Don't walk into a chapter room with gum in your mouth. It's tacky and not professional. You want the girls you talk to to pay attention to what you are talking about, not the glob in the back of your mouth.

5. Umbrella

Even if the forecast says it's impossible for it to rain. Rather be safe than sorry. No one wants to walk in like a wet rat.

6. Notebook with pen

This saved me. You think you will remember each girl you talk to in each house, but you can't. There are a million things running through your head. Write the letters of the house and something you remembered. Example: Alpha Pie, girl with purple eyeliner and blonde hair, talked about dogs, really liked, 8/10.

7. Powder

Always want to make sure your face is even and the sweat hasn't taken any foundation away. A quick pat of powder and you're good as new.

8. Hair brush

Brush through that hair girl. Get them tangles out.

9. Small towel

Maybe I'm the only one who sweats a lot, but my back was drenched during rush. I would wipe my back between houses. I never wanted a girl welcoming me into the house to feel my sweaty back while walking me in.

10. Energy drink

I had a Red Bull on hand at all times during rush. A few sips before each house to help hype you up.

beer on the beach

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

You cannot beat the beach. Believe it or not (which many people may not), New England has a long and beautiful coastline. Most of my high school summers were spent sitting on the Wall at Hampton Beach, getting sunburnt and eating Acai bowls from The Secret Spot. The Wall was the place to be both during the day and at night. We begin our days there with a KB's bagel and coffee, and end them with pizza and ice cream. It’s not a New England summer without that 4 p.m. text from someone, “Who wants to meet at the Wall tonight?” Nighttime is for Tripoli’s Pizza, the sound of waves, and wishes on shooting stars. Wednesday nights are especially important, as those are the nights that Hampton Beach sets off the weekly firework display.
