I am counting down the day for Rush Week! I can’t wait to meet my potential sisters! It will be a week full of overwhelming feeling and information. You will be making a choice that will impact your college career, but it will be worth it. Not knowing what to wear will only add to the stress, so I am helping you out. Everything I have linked below is from a website called SheIn and EVERYTHING is UNDER $30. Can you believe that?!
PERIOD I – OPEN HOUSE – MONDAY OR TUESDAY
It is recommended that during this day you wear something comfortable because there will be a lot of walking. One of these two days students will be attending all, in my case, 12 sorority chapters. They will be introduced to values and standard of the Panhellenic community. Typically, you would wear some type of shorts, a school t-shirt and comfortable shoes (don’t be that girl that take off their shoes). Avoid Nike shorts; they look sloppy, especially when first impressions are everything during formal recruitment. Jean shorts do the trick. You want to look cute and trendy.
PERIOD II – PHILANTHROPY & COMMUNITY SERVICE DAY – WEDNESDAY
During philanthropy and community service day you will be introduced to their philanthropic affiliation. Each sorority has a cause they support; during the year they hold events and raise money for whatever unique cause. In this day, you will only be able to attend up to 8 events that you get invited to, as a way to help you narrow done your choices. For this day, wear something more dressy such as a sundress or skirt and wear flats or wedges.
PERIOD III – VALUES & SISTERHOOD DAY – THURSDAY
Sisterhood day is a fun event that allows sororities to tell you about them and to express their values. Women are recommended to dress in church attire. A formal attire doesn’t have to take away from your style find a way to make your outfit pop a little.
PREFERENCE – FRIDAY
Preference night is the night where you get to see inside your top-choice sororities, it is the dressiest night of the rounds. Try to avoid dresses that reveal too much because they can be distracting while you are talking to a sorority member. Wear cocktail attire and heels. It does not have to be black.
BID DAY – SATURDAY
You finally made to the final day!! Bid day is the best day! You’ll find out which sorority you’ll be in. They will shower you with gifts and t-shirts. They are showing their love! Wear a cute pair shorts and a t-shirt that will make it easier for you to slip on your new letters and join your sisters!
