Transcript SMILE "TIL IT HURTS I was anti- Greek. But they were all really nice and it didn't seem like they were being nice just because they had to. While I was going through rush, I felt like my whole life was on hold for a week. -Hilarie Matthews, Delta Zeta Pledge f^ush: The word brings to mind wild parties and l\ drunken shenanigans. But for those co-eds who go through sorority rush, the process was more formal than traditional fraternity rush. 'Tall sorority rush lasts for a total of five days. Spring rush, which is more informal, lasts for two weeks," said Diane Barber, president of Delta Gamma. The last day of rush consisted of Bid-day. When the girls received bids, they received the title "pledge" to that particular sorority. Once a girl pledges, she often received gifts from the active members. Margaret Garcia, an Alpha Chi Omega said they gave their pledges red carnations, balloons, shirts and goody bags. Jennifer Bertman said rush was a great experience. "It was hectic but it was worthwhile," she said. "It was the opportunity to make new friends. Susan Wheller, a pledge for Alpha Chi Omega, said she was surprised with rush. She said she originally began going through rush because her best friend wanted her to. "I was anti- Greek," Wheller said. "But they were all really nice, and it didn't seem they were being nice just because they thought they had to." -Majorie Goodman You only have a week of formal rush, one mistake can cost you some valuable pledges. -Leslie Heintz, Chi Omega it n w m i ^.^^H f ^yt 7-% ■ m «^Nk: tu l(£ In Sorority 'Rush, with all of the large parties and hectic activity, it is very important not to neglect one on one rush. The Delta Gammas obviously recognize the importance of this and try to capitalize on any time they can spend with the rushees.Photo courtesy AH At the Delta Gamma Pref Party, 'Uhe actives got to know the rushees on a more personal level.
