Rush Budget - Ideas

my chapter has a relatively small rush budget ($2000). any ideas as to some good, unconventional events that would fit into such a budget for a 6 week rush?

What kind of restrictions are put on Rush events by your school/your nationals? Where will you be holding the events (in your house? in the student center? in brothers' apartments?) How many events are you trying to plan with that budget? How many people (including brothers) are usually at these events? Do you have the ability to do outdoor or off-campus events? What kind of weather is usually going on during Rush week?

I'd be happy to help (my chapter is used to hosting Recruitment on even less money than that), I just need some more info

Not bad. I think at a smaller university it'd be hard pressed to find a group of rushees that could finish off 200 handles.

Why is your budget so small, my chapter is a little bigger but our rush budget for the fall is $25,000 and $12000 in the spring?

This dude is on crack. Or can't see past big school Greek Life. Congratulations for your immaculate rush budget but some chapters just can't swing that.

I hope your brothers are dating GDIs then, because that is going to be a standards nightmare for any sorority girls (and kind of trashy for rush as well, in my opinion at least).

Most of the places they call it Beirut don't have overly prudish sorority girls.
