Hah- I remember that well. When I was in school, I knew someone with a condo right by Hardin House and that is where we camped out a couple of years.

Good luck to the ladies!

My son went to the AXO house last night to watch their skit practice. He said it was all great fun until he went outside and someone had plowed into his car!!!!!!

Of course, no note!!!

So, in the past 2 weeks, my youngest, who had his license exactly one week - got in a wreck, then two days ago, my son's car (the one that got hit last night), was broken into, and now THIS!!!

Oh well, if bad luck comes in 3's we should be in the clear!!!

That's really bad luck, Srmom. I don't know what to say except I hope that it gets better. One year we bought a new car and it was almost totalled when somebody hit it. The insurance company paid to have it fixed, though, and just three months later it was hit again, and really totalled. I was in the car the second time, and I knew it was bad when I saw ugly green stuff pouring out of the engine area. However, the replacement car has never been hit, and its been nearly 5 years. Knock on wood for both of us.

But everyone is okay, right? Hope this is the end of your bad luck with cars!

My brother's car was stolen from in front of our house while he was away during his freshman year of college. My mom was in the hospital having back surgery (a week long stay back then) so my dad and I were busy with work/school and heading straight to the hospital every evening. That weekend, my dad and I went to pick up my brother from school and pulled up to our house and my brother says "Where's my car?" Dad and I looked at each other, incredulous. We had no idea how long it had been gone, just that it was sometime that week since mom was in the hospital. We felt awful. They found the car, miles away, completely stripped

Yes, he wasn't in the car when it happened - it was a parked car "hit and run"

Thanks, I hope so!!!

Back to UT rush, today's pref and tomorrow is bid day! My son's fraternity is having a big "back to school" party tomorrow night. They get the monopoly on all the girls because the IFC doesn't allow parties that night - but, they aren't in the IFC .

emily, Sorry, no, the sororities don't have spring rush. I recommend that if you plan on rushing in the fall, that you meet as many actives as possible this spring, make contacts if you can, it will be a tremendous help next year.

I am an alumna from UT currently serving on our house corp board. I'm not directly involved with recruitment, but have heard from our chapter members and advisors that BIG changes are in the works regarding formal recruitment at UT, especially regarding summer rush. There is to be no summer rushing as has been the tradition forever. I was told that the national president from every NPC organization on campus has signed on to an agreement that there will be no summer rushing at UT. Instead, there will be some sort of information tables or sessions at summer orientation. There is also going to be a sophomore quota. I'll try to find out more details or have someone who knows update this thread. Any Texas greeks out there know any more on this?
