Transcript College Life RUSH PROVIDES FUN, WORK Eighty coeds look forward with eagerness and a touch of anxiety to September 14—the beginning of sorority fall rush. The week's activities begin on Wednesday with Convocation, held in Cullen Auditorium. At this time sorority representatives explain rush. The rest of the week is filled with parties, parties, and more parties. For rushees the week is fun, exciting, and a little exhausting. For sorority members it is most exhausting, but fun and exciting as well. Parties, skit practices, and decoration making go on all week, and no one gets much sleep. While sororities meet to discuss prospective pledges, confused rushees discuss the sororities, trying to decide which are their favorites. Finally the morning comes when bid cards must be signed. Rushees indicate their top three choices, and then there is nothing to do except wait. That same evening, bids are given out in Cullen Auditorium while sorority members wait nearby for their new pledges. This is a time of laughter and tears, of ecstasy and heartache. This is rush and 40 girls embark on the new experience of pledging. SOFT WINDS and Hawaiian music greet rushees at a Zeta Tau Alpha rush party. Prospective pledges find that the island's dress and food is the theme of the party. SKITS TICKLE the interest of rushees at an Alpha Chi Omega party. Here members pantomime to the nutty chipmunks' song, "We "Want Alvin." GAY COSTUMES add to the color of rush week as exemplified in the Alice in Wonderland costumes of the Delta Gammas. PIRACY on the high seas is the theme of this Phi Mu rush party—one way to get members is to shanghai them. 112
