Be yourself!


Super cliché, BUT you don't want to portray yourself as someone else and then end up in a house that's not for you!

Be yourself, but your BEST self


Same thing applies! Portray yourself in the best way possible in a way that's still genuine.

Don't stress


Everything will work itself out in the end.

Prepare outfits, hair, and makeup ahead of time


You don't wanna be up at 4am digging through your closet because the outfit your put together in your head looks not that great in real life.

Don't be afraid to ask the girl rushing you questions


Questions about her sorority, why she rushed that house, what stood out to her, how she knew that her house was HER house, etc!

Don't be nervous!!


Chances are, the girl rushing you is exponentially more nervous than you are.



Bring a little purse and put a small water bottle in it and take the drinks the girls give you at the house!!!! IT'S AUGUST!!!!!! IT'S HOT!!!!!

Keep some ~extras~ in your purse


Extras: oil blotting sheets, concealer, mints/gum, chapstick, setting spray, bobby pins, dress tape, Advil, lotion, deodorant, tampons, and whatever else you think may need.

Keep the shoes comfortable, ladies


Long days + uncomfortable shoes = a cranky PNM

Talk to your Gamma Chi


At UGA, they're called Gamma Chis, but different schools call them different things like Rho Chi and Gamma Rho. Either way, these ladies have disaffiliated from their sorority so that they can help you and give you unbiased advice. They want you to have the best rush experience possible so use this amazing resource!!

A Beginner's Guide to Milwaukee Sports

Part I: The Bucks


Being a college student in Milwaukee has its perks, especially for sports fans. Now, while some may have brought their hometown teams to college, others (myself included) may have warmed up to the Cream City teams without knowing much about them. If this is the case for you, then these pointers can help you start enjoying Milwaukee basketball without looking and sounding like a bandwagon fan.

Quick History

Here are some facts about the Bucks that can make you feel more knowledgeable about the franchise:

- They have only won one championship (back in 1971) and have lost one NBA Finals series (1974) (Land of Basketball)

- They have only had one* MVP-caliber player in Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (#33) during the 1971, 1972, and 1974 seasons (Land of Basketball)

- Other Notable Players Include: Oscar Robertson (#1), Sidney Moncrief (#4), Jon McGlocklin (#14) and Ray Allen (#34) (Land of Basketball)

*Giannis Antetokounmpo may win the MVP award this year


Gear Up

This one is a bit of a no-brainer. Wearing team's colors or spirit wear is a must, especially if you're going to a game. Most items like hats and t-shirts are perfectly acceptable, and these are great if you're not trying to break the bank. Buying your gear from a sporting goods store will usually be cheaper than buying them from the team store (the main one of which is located in Fiserv Forum). Most online stores like, Fanatics, Fansedge, and sometimes even the team's online store will have sales on sports gear, so getting a good deal on team wear is always a plus!

A Word of Caution: Jerseys

All three of these players are not part of the 2018-2019 roster and #77 and #3 have been reused by current players Ersan Ilyasova (#77) and George Hill (#3)

If you're willing to go the extra mile, buying a jersey can really get you into locked in and pumped for the live action. However, it should be kept in mind that official Nike NBA jerseys range from $110-$250, so they definitely are an investment. While there are other options available like the FastBreak jerseys by Fanatics, they are a simpler (still official) knockoff of the Nike jerseys. Also; beware buying sale jerseys. There are usually three reasons why jerseys are ever on sale (aside from a storewide sale): a player is injured, a player doesn't play much and is about to be traded, or a player has been traded. While there is nothing wrong with having the jersey of a player who went on to another team (like Kareem and Allen), you are not exactly going to get brownie points for wearing a Jabari Parker or a Thon Maker jersey anytime soon.
