I agree. I used to advise at UCLA. What they wear to recruitment is very different than the PNM's you'll see at GWU, where I have also helped out at recrutment.

But it also depends on the decade. I would never advise PNMs at my school to wear what I wore for recruitment. It's changed a lot, and I've only kept up with it because of my friends who volunteer during recruitment or as chapter advisers at the school.

Oh, come on, you know you're DYING to pull those leggings out of the back of your closet. They're practically screaming to you.

Back on topic, friends. I really am not up to housekeeping today.

I disagree... I wore a sundress.. at UF...they still wear sundresses. I wore a jeans skirt.. they still wear jeans skirts.. I wore a cocktail dress.. they still wear cocktail dresses.

Now... at the rush in NJ.. oy! The PNMs wore Jeans, jeans, jeans, and more jeans. Bellies sticking out under too tight and too short t-shirts, I even saw some thong underwear peaking out from some very low rise jeans. And, as I mentioned... jeans and Ugg boots for pref night.

It was 1000. I rode a dinosaur to rush. I wore the cutest tiger skin dress with my hair tied up in a bone.

Here's a photo of my boyfriend and I celebrating after I got my bid.

OK this was funny.

But I'm going to start taking a drink every time you say "jeans and Ugg boots for pref night." NJ is not Florida. It is cold sometimes. People dress for the weather. Not to mention the campus topography is not always conducive to cute little heels and cute little dresses.

I'm a California girl born and raised and I'm moving out of LA for the 1st time in the fall to attend school at the university of Kansas!!! Im really nervous that girls there are going to have a completely different style than what I'm used to. For example: what if "church wear" in LA is different that "church wear" in Kansas. People at my shorts, tank tops and flip flops to church (and I'm sure thats not what KU is looking for haha). Please give me some advice

I'm pretty sure there's a thread or two somewhere that has discused Kansas in the past. If you use the google advanced search engine you should be able to locate it. Meanwhile, I found this link http://www.k-state.edu/greek/recruitment/guidetoFMR.htm for Kansas State. Not the same school but, likely, similar attire. IIRC, there's a couple GC's from your school. They might chime in too.

Good Luck!

As long as it isn't a semi-formal or formal dress, sounds fine for prefs at UCF. UCF recruitment attire is casual, for the most part, and gets progressively dressier as you head into Video Day and prefs. You can get away with shorts and t-shirts or a casual sundress the first two days. By Video Day, wear something like a sundress. For prefs, something you'd wear to a nice dinner or maybe your high school graduation dress.
