Tips and tricks for when you Go Greek!

Sorority Recruitment Survival Guide

Every school does it a little differently, but here are some tips that will help you survive rush week!

1. Keep an open mind.

You may or may not have some preconceived notions about the sorority you want to pref with, but remember recruitment is the best time to meet the most girls from each organization so go in with an open mind.

2. Wear comfortable shoes.

Don’t wear heels every day, you usually don’t have too. Stick to a cute pair of flats or eye-catching sandals, your feet will thank you later.

3. Ask questions.

This is going to be the best way for you to determine which sorority is the best fit for you after the preference round is over. It also shows the sisters that you want to know more about the sorority they are so passionate about.

4. Watch what you post on social media.

Seeking to find the most awesome and well-rounded girls, current sisters will turn to social media to look for information- so post wisely!

5. Don’t talk about frat boys.

Or bars, or drinking, or politics for that matter. Talk about topics like extra-curricular’s, high school involvements, hometowns, or even your favorite Netflix shows!

6. Wear something classy, but also unique to your personal style.

You want to stand out amongst the other girls and a great way to do that is to wear a bright colored top, snazzy jewelry, or that perfect winged eyeliner. Do you, girl!

7. Trust in your Rho Gamma.

Having given up her public title as “sister” for a semester, your Rho Gamma is dedicated to you. She will show you the ‘panhellenic ways’, the do’s and don’ts of recruitment, and she’ll give you as many mints as you want.

8. Be yourself and be confident.

During rush week it is most important to be yourself so that the sisters from each sorority can really get to know you!

9. Think about some good talking points for yourself beforehand so you aren’t searching for things to talk about.

Umm… puppies!

10. Be as positive as possible.

Even if you end up talking about your dreadful roommate or that you had to drop a class last semester, try and take the most positive outlook on it. The sister will appreciate your optimism and splash of sarcasm.

11. Stay healthy.

This week, it will be important that you take care of yourself and your immune system so you feel your best and don't get sick!

12. Use this as an opportunity to meet people no matter the outcome.

Talk to girls in line with you, fellow Rho Gamma group members, and the sisters- you never know who you may run into on campus later.

13. Don’t forget a small bag with items you may need during recruitment.

Items may include: deodorant, lipstick, mints, protein bars, tampons, allergy meds (if necessary), mattifying powder, and a water bottle.

Despite the fact that this week will be almost as tiring as finals week, it is all worth it for the everlasting sisterhood you will find.

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.
