A Looney Tune Recruitment

Okay I know I don’t post a lot anymore (Thanks Spam) but I’m home sick with the flu so I thought I would post my friend’s daughters recruitment story. She went through recruitment this past fall at a school in the northwest- and my friend knowing how much I love a good rush story awesomely shared every detail with me… The observations are “unfiltered” and the one thing I loved about her story was how harsh, silly and emotional her thought process was. Typical 18 year old!


So without further ado let me introduce you to a Looney Tunes Recruitment Starring our very own Bugs Bunny Rushee…. At Warner Bros. U. -- Bugs is one of those truly neat kids that I KNEW going into recruitment would not only be successful but be one of the odd ones that LOVED the process. She loves meeting people and is very personable. In high school she was very involved and her grades were outstanding. She was what we would call the “full package”. Bugs has a lot of Greek connections with her mother, grandmother and aunt all members of different houses.

There are 9 houses on Warner Brothers Campus and recs were highly recommended. I really loved how another recruitment thread I read posted how the PNM went about getting their recs so I have included that here…..

The 9 houses:

Yosemite Sam - this was a hard one for Bugs and mom to get-they finally found a neighbor who mentioned that a guidance counselor at Bugs high school had been one, so Bugs made the connection and she was more than happy to write.

Foghorn Leghorn- my sister-in-law (who lives in same neighboring forest as Bugs) was a Foghorn and wrote for her

Daffy Duck- Bugs has connections to Daffy Duck out the rabbit hole so to speak- This is Bug’s legacy house through her mother who is a very active alum. Mom filled out the legacy form and a close family friend who was a Daffy at Warner Bros U wrote for her as well as the local area alum president- Finally Bugs’ cousin Tweety is currently an active and living in the house at the Warner Bros U. chapter.

Pepe Le Pew- this is Bugs’ legacy house through her grandmother. Additionally a good family friend as well as a sorority sister of grandmother wrote for Bugs.

Wile E. Coyote - Next door neighbor was a Wile E. Coyote

Road Runner- a cousin of hers was an active at this chapter at Warner Bros. U and graduated in the spring. She and one of her sisters wrote for her

Tasmanian Devil- two cousins were Tasmanian Devils- one had served as chapter president and one is very active in area alum chapter- both wrote for her

Sylvester- Bugs’ aunt was a Sylvester- she and a sorority sister of hers wrote for her.

Porky Pig—EEEKS! Mom and Bugs were so busy trying to find a rec for Yosemite that they totally forgot all about Porky Pig!!! Thus Bug’s has no Rec!—



Day 1
Bug’s goes to all of the houses.

Foghorn Leghorn- Bugs said they were all so beautiful and tent talk has them as the smartest on Campus. Bugs liked the fact that the seemed to eat all their carrots and have high IQ’s and clear skin but wasn’t sure she felt like she fit in.


Pepe Le Pew- Direct quote from Bugs “I hate them- hate- I would rather die than be stuck there” (ahhhh said as only an 18-year-old drama queen can say). Bugs also said the party was a “horrible disaster in every single solitary way possible”- Mamma Bugs has no clue what this means but it didn’t sound good.

Daffy Duck- Oops Bugs is not in love. Mamma Bugs said Bugs was trying to hedge but could tell there was no instant connection. Bugs said it “wasn’t as bad as Pepe Le Pew, but it wasn’t great like tent talk made the chapter out to be.”

Road Runner- like OMG they had the CUTEST songs EVER!

Wile E. Coyote- Bugs was surprised to like them- Tent talk had them firmly as a “lower tier” house but Bugs felt instantly at home and talked about soccer with her Wile Rusher. She said they were all so nice and fun not at all like what everyone said they would be like.

Porky Pig- Ooops- Bugs is IN LOVE. IN LOVE. Everything about them was instant love for Bugs. Mamma bugs is kicking herself for forgetting about Porky in the rec frenzy.

Yosemite Sam- cool house but totally forgettable

Sylvester- They were “rude and B—chy” Bugs declared. They did have an awesome house she conceded but the girls were not nice at all.

And the last house of the day was Tasmanian Devil- who lived up to their name- they were very high energy and were lots of fun.

At the end of the Day Bug’s rankings were:
Porky Pig
Foghorn Leghorn
Wile E Coyote
Road Runner
Tasmanian Devil
Yosemite Sam
Daffy Duck
Sylvester
Pepe Le Pew


After getting off phone with Bugs, Mamma Bugs was telling Daddy Bugs about the day and said “wouldn’t you know the one she would be in love with would be Porky Pig the only one she doesn’t have a rec for.” Daddy Bugs casually says “oh Aunt Petunia was a Porky Pig I wish I would have known”- Mamma Bugs wonders if stabbing Daddy Bugs with a knife would get her sent to jail or if she could she be set free for temporary recruitment insanity. Where was Elmer Fudd and his gun when she needed him! A very rapid phone call was made to Aunt Petunia however Mamma Bugs does not have a good feeling that Aunt Petunia will be able to do anything about it at this point. Petunia seemed very vague on the phone. But of course Aunt Petunia is elderly Mamma Bugs reminds herself as she contemplates killing Daddy Bugs again.

Day 2- Bugs could return to a maximum of 7 houses, her schedule includes:
Porky Pig
Foghorn Leghorn
Tasmanian Devil
Pepe Le Pew
Wile E. Coyote
Daffy Duck
Road Runner

Bugs is excited that she has a full schedule all though she is upset to see Pepe Le Pew on her schedule. She isn’t too bothered that Yosemite Sam is not on there they hadn’t made that big of an impression and she is relived that she doesn’t have to return to Sylvester.

Today was house tours:

First house of the day was Porky Pig- whatever love Bugs felt for them yesterday was magnified even more today. From the house to the girls she met everything about Porky feels like home to Bugs. She said they remind her of all of her girlfriends from high school and said she was the last to leave the house she was so into the conversation she was having.

Next up was Daffy Duck- Daffy was better for her today she said the house was nice and the girls seemed cool, but she had an awkward encounter with her cousin Tweety- who apparently was not very friendly. Mamma Bugs told her that Tweety could be preoccupied since it is her first time on the other side of rush and not to read too much into it…. Still Mamma Bugs is worried that Bugs may be trying hard to like Daffy Duck so she doesn’t let her (and Tweety) down.

Third house she visited was Tasmanian Devil- Bugs declared that they had “the NICEST BATHROOMS EVER--- I mean like EVER!”

Fourth house was Pepe Le Pew- Bugs was dreading this house and its noxious smell- but was very pleasantly surprised when she was paired with a girl from one of her classes. They had a great time and the house itself was very “cool”. Bugs left feeling a lot more positive about them than the day before.

Foghorn Leghorn was her fifth house of the day. The house was as beautiful as the girls. Bugs had a really good time but again she couldn’t help but think that maybe she liked them for their image and not for the girls themselves. She felt “out of her league”.

Next she visited Road Runner- OMG like seriously they all must be theater majors. Their songs are SOOOOOO GOOD!!!!!

Wile E. Coyote was her final house of the day. Again she had an awesome time here and loved their house so much. She said that she just felt comfortable and “at home” with the girls there.

At the end of the day Bugs said she had a hard time ranking them because she loved all of them and could see her self being friends with any of them. She didn’t want to have choose. She finally went with
Porky Pig
Wile E. Coyote
Road Runner
Tasmanian Devil
Daffy Duck

And her Bottom 2
Foghorn Leghorn- reasoning that she loved the house and the girls but just did not feel like she could compete with them- she felt they were too smart and beautiful for her to be comfortable

Pepe Le Pew- Bugs kind of regretted ranking them in the bottom 2 because she had liked them today but her negative impression from the first day was very strong.

During her nightly debriefing with Mamma Bugs- Mamma took the time to tell Bugs that she needed to start looking past awesome songs and pretty houses reminding her that she was joining for the people. She told her to really look at what girls she thought she could be friends with and at the other girls that would be her pledge sisters. Mamma Bugs said she could almost hear the eye-rolls from over the phone.

Loving this. Seems like a good attitude on the process and on the houses. Not sure how much Bathrooms should make a difference on a lifetime decision, but we were all that age once.
