Call Out Rush Event
My chapter is currently in the process of figuring out our Fall rush schedule, and I'm trying to come up with a great first event to attract a large number of guys to get the ball rolling for the semester.
An idea I had is some sort of "block party" featuring music and food as well as any other things that we can think of, basically just to try to attract new freshmen.
Our school has a "field" with shelters, basketball hoops, and sand volleyball RIGHT next to the residence halls where most of the freshmen live.
My question is: does anyone have any experience with this? Or any advice as to how to pull this off? Our school has about 12,000 students and our goal is to pledge somewhere in the neighborhood of 30 guys in the fall. (We're a newly chartered chapter attempting to really get going)
Any help would be much appreciated!
