Rush is full of surprises, be prepared.

3 Things I Wish I Knew Before Rush

Sorority recruitment was an experience I will never forget. It was tough for sure, but I made it through and I am in LOVE with the house I got. Although I am obsessed with greek life now, I was indifferent about it going into rush. I did not know much about it nor did I have any connections which made the process that much more difficult for me. I had to get recommendation letters, do an orientation, and decide which philanthropy I want to represent. However, I am here to give some insight to all of my confused girls going into rush. Do not worry, you are not alone.

There you have it, three things I wish I would have known before rush. I know it all seems hectic, but remember to trust the process and you will end up exactly where you belong! Also, rush is not for everyone so please don't be pressured to rush. Following that, there is also informal recruitment or continuous open bidding if formal rush is not for you. Have fun!

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.
