FWIW - TX State rush is not as super-competitive as UT. I would say send the goodies with your name on them - not hers. Your legacy introduction and the recs I'm sure you are having your Chi O sisters write will do the rest.

^^^^ I DO remember that whole subliminal cartoon message thing! Love it!

I remembered another outrageous alum gift:

Remember the old tv commercial that went something like "If it says, Libbey's Libbey's, Libbey's on the label, label, label; you will like it,like it, like it on your table, table, table?"
When I was an active (in the dark ages) an alum sent an entire wicker laundry type basket filled with canned goods. You guessed it, the rushee's name was Libby and her alum had made all new labels on these cans complete with "key" ingredients (I am a kappa) and other clever things like that. I remember being very impressed. Also, this was back in the day when those types of gifts were not banned.

gee_ess! How can you call that the dark ages?

Yes, the Arkansas Pi Phis got tons of presents too; I remember the president of the alum club sent a massive bouquet on behalf of her daughter. (Whom they did not pledge, another story entirely.)

Hijack about Libby's: when I was at Auburn, a girl named Libby was a finalist for Homecoming Queen. All her posters had that 'libby libby libby' label on them and she won!

Did your Libby pledge Kappa?

I honestly cannot remember! I think not since I can't remember who she was...BTW - Arkansas Pi Phis still receive gifts from alumnae.
