Transcript RUSH WHAT A I ormal Rush, a tradition practiced at universities and colleges around the nation, and applied by sororities at UH was about to take a brand new form. 1990 marked the first year that the Inter-Fraternity Council has implemented Formal Rush. According to the Greek community, this was a step in the right direction. "It's more informative for the rushees," said Pi Kappa Alpha rush chairman, Andy Butler. "It educates them and forces them to look at more than one house." With formal rush, rushees have to visit several houses in order to get their card stamped, thus proving that they didn't just limit themselves to the first group of guys they came across. Others agreed that formal rush was a vast improvement over regular rush in which a person merely went to a party to have a good time and left three hours later with a pledge pin on his shirt. "Some changes do have to be made, though," said Mark Atkins, an active member of Sigma Nu. Atkins said, "Formal rush works as long as there's no open bidding afterwards." Atkins referred to fraternities who did not feel they got a sufficient number of pledges during formal rush and resorted to rushing people "the old fashioned way." Atkins said, "It defeats the purpose." -Michael Loria Some changes do have to be made, though. Formal rush works as long as there's no open bidding afterwards. It defeats the purpose. Enthusiasm is one of the principal requirements that one must have when being part of a fraternity. During the parties, members mingle with rushees. This group of Greeks display their true colors at one of the rush parties held at the Sigma Nu fraternity house. Photo courtesy 2N.

You don't have to waste time on those who are not interested. -Paul Laurienti, Sigma Nu 4 It didn't really portray the real image of the fraternity. Everything seemed rigid. -James Meinen, Tau Kappa Epsilon Associate 234 Greeks Kb Fraternity Rush 235
