Transcript After Months of Preparation Rush Exciting for New Sorors Rush: one word sums it up. For many young women at UH, sorority rush was a week full of excitement, fun, and frenzy. From September third throughout September eighth, these young women spent time attending rush parties in order to become more informed about each of the sororities on campus. The main objective of the parties was to give the rushees facts concerning each sorority's campus involvement, scholarship activities, community service, and philanthropy involvement. It also gave the rushees a chance to ask various questions that were of interest to them. Several young women went through rush, although each of them had different reasons and expectations. "Many of my friends went to different colleges, and this was a way for me to meet people," said Mandy Bader, a freshman business major. "Being from out of state, this was a good way for me to meet new friends. Also, both of my parents were Greek, so that was a big influence," added Lisa Gray, a freshman Hotel/Restaurant Management major. For some rushees, rush was not what they had expected. "It was a lot more than I expected. I was really surprised," said sophomore pre-nursing major Jill Weiner. Freshman Education major Jenny Patterson added, "It was stressful, but it was more fun than I thought it would be." On bid day, the rushees gathered together to receive their ivitations to pledge and to be taken off by their new sisters to a celebration held in their honor. "I was nervous but excited, too," said Lori Zirot, a freshman with an undeclared major. "I was nervous because I was unsure if I would get my first choice. When I saw that I did, I was very excited and happy." Some rushees found that they had more in common than the Greeks they met than they realized."I'm from New Jersey, and it was at the end of one of the parties when I met a girl who had lived there. I was surprised," said Gray. For some rushees, rush fell into a pattern that did not differ much day to day. For others, though, it was an adventure. "It was hard because I worked, and even though I got off early, I still had to hurry to get to the parties on time," said Heather Meley, a junior Merchandising/ Business Administration major. Many made the decision to pledge after learning of some of the advantages of membership. "Being in a sorority will give me a better chance to meet more friends, give me an incentive to keep up my grades, and give me a chance to become more involved on campus," said Patterson. In the end, most of the rushees were glad that they had participated in rush. "I definitely would go through it again," said Zirot. "It was fun but nerve- racking," added Bader. "I had a great great time, but it was exhausting," said Weiner. Jennifer Kuehn DRESS FOR SUCCESS... Four Rushees show their dresses. Each different nigh of sorority rush had adifferent dress code..
