Transcript Looking for new members IFC Rush Starts Greek Year Before UH students could even finish Drop/Add to begin each semester, the Houston Greeks began their year with Interf raternity Council Rush. In the Greek world, rush is the time period when the UH Greeks try to recruit fresh blood to continue their various activities. There is both informal rush, where rushees are introduced to the Greek system through Greek friends and classmates, and formal rush, where prospective members register with IFC before visiting various houses in a two-week period. Formal Rush culminates in Bid Night when the fraternity members welcome the new pledges that they have selected that also chose them. This was the third straight year for IFC formal rush. Formal rush was dry, meaning that there was no alcohol at the rush functions. According to sophomore busi- THE SHIRTS OFF THEIR BACKS... Members of Delta Upsilon cheer at the homecoming game while wearing their rush shirts. Most Greek organizations design a new rush shirt every semester. Photo by Hugh Tom Chin. ness major James Meinen, who served as rush chairman for Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity in the fall, dry rush was the most integral part of the rush program. "All rush should be dry rush," he said, "because you are making a lifelong commitment to a fraternity. Even for a preliminary commitment such as rush, that commitment should be made sober." Although this was the third year for formal rush, it didn't mean that the program has remained unchanged during that time. The fall of 1991 brought some changes to the system. Said Meinen, "They changed it a little for the better because you could give bids before formal rush for the guys that already knew where they were going. It also gave a lot of fraternities the initiative to go out and get those guys." Spring changes included the legalization of giving out bids while formal rush was still on going, which had been classified as a rush violation in the past. Most changes are made due to a combination of factors. IFC gets a new Rush chairman each semester, and each new chairmen brings new ideas. In addition, any problems from the past rushes are dealt with, yeilding change, as well as the fact that any improvements that can be made are attempted. However, the basic elements, such as the structure and the no-alcohol policy, went through no major changes. After the fraternities finally finished rush, they began their respective pledgeship programs to orientate and educate their future brethren. The Interf raternity Council is a representative body made up of representatives from all of the recognized greek letter social fraternites on the University of Houston Campus.
