Transcript Rush. Rush Updated sorority rush process may be convenient, J/ess scary University of Houston women wishing to join ♦ a sorority next fall will enter an updated rush system, t ^3wn*cn organizers said wiH °ffer interested students a more convenient and less expensive alternative to \^ established rush practices. The major changes in next year's rush, said Associate Director of Campus Activities Kelly ^ Morgan Phillips, are that the actual process will be reduced by one day and the event date will also be ^moved back. "In years past, they've been hosting the event before the beginning of school," said Phillips, so rush wouldn't conflict with the hectic first weeks of the academic year. Although the conflict with school events was minimized, many interested students who were new to UH found themselves unable to participate in rush, she said. Next year, rush events will take place over the Labor Day weekend, Phillips said. They will not conflict with classes, and will offer any interested students a chance to rush. The former flat $30 rush fee will be replaced by a fee schedule, which Phillips said is designed to benefit "early birds." Those who register for rush before classes pay $15, which will increase to $30 the Wednesday before and $50 that Thursday. Applications will not be taken after Thursday night's orientation, she said. Phillips stressed the fact that participating in rush is not a commitment for women to join a sorority. Whether one chooses to pledge or not, "at least you know that it is, or isn't, something that you want to do," she said. Karla Rodriguez, a rush counselor, agreed. "It's not as scary as it sounds," she said. Other changes in next year's rush include a guidebook, which was prepared by UH Greek Life Office and the National Panhellenic Council. The 4,700 books, which give an overview of the Greek system, were mailed to new students. In past years, a brochure with minimal information was sent instead of a book, Phillips said. Among the major reasons that college women choose to pledge are service and support, she said. "Certainly, as a community, the Greeks do a good job of getting involved in other things too," she said. "(Sororities) are not elite organizations. They are organizations that actually support women in their college activities." Jim Parsons m
