AT LEAST six of the sisters of the other sorority I preffed came over, hugged me, and cried on my shoulder! My shirt was absolutely soggy from their tears and possibly worse. My new sisters were absolutely aghast at them!

Ugh, I would be too. That's so weird!

Here's a gem for you guys:

6 of our sororities have houses, 4 of which are on the same street. After Bid Night, we all go back to our houses to start our Bid Night parties and take our pics.

Two sororities on our road, AB & CD pref alot of the same girls during rush, so sometimes a girl will end up getting AB when she really wanted CD or vice versa.

This past year, there was a girl who got a bid to AB, but was visibly upset because her first choice was CD. AB is across from our house, so we could see them taking their pics.

We were taking our bid night pics in our front yard. We could see a girl from AB walking across to the CD yard toward a girl in an AB bid shirt. She was hysterical & crying on a CD girl's shoulder. It turns out, the other AB sister was trying to convince her to come over and take bid pics.

It's sad and weird. I understand it a little more from the girl's perspective since she thinks she REALLY wanted the group, but the group members ought to know better than to act that way. What are your new members thinking while they see you weeping about the girls who went someplace else?

Honeychile, in your case, were they people that you actually knew from your hometown or are we talking people who you had only known a week?

I do think the idea of an all Greek mixer shortly after bid day would be a great idea. Maybe not on bid day, but soon after.

This is horrible, but when I rushed, the air conditioning went out at the ABC house. I only remember was how everyone had sweaty shiny faces. The rusheers were so distracted and caught off guard. I just remember how hot it was and listening to apologies. It was awful for them... Quota was 32..They pledged 12. They recovered. I think they are on top now.

This is a story told to me by an older neighbor who went through rush at the Univ. of Arizona in the days when rushees had to dress in heels, stockings and dresses.

My neighbor had been Homecoming Queen, Valedictorian, etc. and was having a dream rush. She was a tall, slim natural blonde. It was nearly the end of rush with longer parties, but the rushees had to stand out in the blazing Arizona sun to wait on the sidewalk. She is fair and was suffering in the 115o heat.

Arizona Girl decided she had to take off her high heels. Mistake! Immediately her feet began to swell badly. Oh, dear. She thought it might help to walk across the grass which had to be cooler than the cement. How could she go into *** house without shoes? Arizona Girl proceeded to walk across the grass when the powerful automatic sprinklers went on! In seconds she was drenched. Her dress was soaked; her hair was dripping down her shoulders. Oops! It was now time for the party at *** house. In she went shoeless, soaked and dripping. The *** members were not amused. At the next house, another top house, she arrived still wet and bedraggled. Fortunately, these girls thought it was hilarious and the funniest thing they had seen so far in rush. She pledged the second house and had four happy years there. Later she was an active alumna and long time advisor for another chapter of &&&.

It was a mix. I knew two of the sisters from high school, and found out later that I had been another's "rush crush". The other three, I had just met that week! Seriously, the one had such a hold on my neck, it really hurt - to say nothing of the tears!!

I agree about the All Greek Mixer - just NOT on Bid Night! Bid Night/Day should be for getting to know your newly expanded family.

You are not allowed to bump this thread without a story. You always have the best stories, and you got me excited for no reason.

I have the KSU greek system to thank for all my awesome stories. It's as if all of the crazies, bitches, brats, and social retards lay low until September and then BAM! They all decide to sign up for recruitment. It's nuts.

I'm assisting with recruitment this fall so I'll have plenty of stories for you guys!

Having just gone through spring rush this year, I only have stories from the other side of the fence. But it was in the middle of the day for round robins when I went to ABC. Right away I could tell that I wasn't clicking with the sister I was talking with. No big deal, we can still talk politely, can't we? Well, even that was hard. Stand up, stick your butt out, jutt your chin forward, and bob only your upper body up and down every second. That was how she faced me for an awkward 10 minutes. Guess I bored her. :p

Or maybe she had a sore back??? Odd . . .

I remember rushing a girl from Bath, Ohio. She was really sweet, but incredibly shy and I had a really hard time connecting with her. Finally out of ideas, I asked her about her hometown since it had an interesting name. Well, this really perked her up and she immediately asked me if I knew who else was from Bath. Apparently, Jeffrey Dahlmer. Then she starts to tell me about how her grandparents lived close enough to the house where Jeffrey Dahlmer grew up that during the investigation they actually had cops in their backyard. It made for interesting, if not a little creepy, conversation. And the look on the face of the rusher who came to bump me was priceless.

She did return to our house for the next round, but the only way I could remember her was as Jeffrey's neighbor.

I just read some of these stories and now i simply can't wait for recruitment!

I love this thread. My tale can't compete with some of the really crazy ones on here, but hopefully if this thread stays at the top some more people will be inspired to share.

My senior year I was chatting with a PNM named Laura. She seemed nice enough at first, if a little awkward. My friend Lauren came over to bump me and the PNM jumped to introduce herself, she said "You're name's Lauren? Mine's Laura and my last initial is N., so sometimes people call me Lauren, too! What a coincidence!" It was a little weird since Lauren is such a common name but I figured she was probably just nervous. However before I could even turn to leave, the next thing out of her mouth was, "So, I heard XYZ wears white for Initiation--what do you all wear for Initiation?"

Thinking about it, if it's not on there already, that should probably be added to the "what not to do/say during rush" thread.

SKBama -- Boy, if I had a problem with every sorority where someone's boyfriend cheated on her with me (or, more realistically, where the girl THOUGHT the guy cheated on her with me), I would have been cut almost everywhere, since I rushed sophomore year.

Oh wait, that IS what happened.....

Never mind.
