Question Rush/ Pledging

I am the new pledge mom for our chapter of Gamma Sigma Sigma. We really need to boost our membership numbers. Any ideas for good rush, pledge activities? I would really appreciate it Thanks!

Cool

The best things to do for Rush are things that the brothers enjoy. This will both have a greater likelyhood of good brother turn out, and will help y'all see who fits into your group.

A really good resource for rush is at http://www.tke.org/rush01.html

I was the Pledgetrainer for my (coed)fraternity my senior year. My advice is to balance the educational part of pledging with the fun. My new members had a class every week for history & chapter info, and also so they could ask questions, etc. Each week we also scheduled at least one activity that was purely social- (this was something my frat didn't do when i pledged) and i saw that the new members became exceptionally close to one another. (Much more so than previous pledgeclasses). They also felt more like they belonged to the entire group.

Good luck, i know this is a lot of work!!
