But the new rush scheduling also poses some problems, such as increased possibility of "dirty rushing," or rushing girls outside of organized rush events, said Teresa Sakai, a freshman majoring in psychology who joined a sorority last semester.

"It will be hard for active members to not talk to potential new members during that week-long period," Sakai said.


Seriously, it's called "watch yourself". Obviously, if you see you have a class with a PNM and she says Hi, well duh say hi back and if for some reason she wants to discuss recruitment you say "I'm sorry, I am unable to discuss recruitment outside the recruitment time frame" (or something like that). If you are in a group with a PNM you only talk about your classwork. There is a difference between respecting the PNM in class and talking about classwork and dirty rushing (at least in my mind).

I really like how Panhel said they were going to educate chapters on dirty rushing.

I would hope that the sorority members would watch what they say because if Panhel found out about a dirty rushing incident, WOW that would be a huge rush infraction. (And not knowing rush infractions I don't know what would happen to the chapter/sister)

It also helps if the Rho Gammas/Rho Chis/whatever tell their PNMs that sorority members are not to discuss recruitment with them. I wish I would have known why members I had classes with were being so standoff-ish.

We were usually told to let our sophomore or junior friends who were rushing that we wouldn't be able to talk with them like we usually did once school started. So most of them knew already. It was always funny to see girls who forgot and after all summer ran up to try and give a hug in the middle of the student union building "OOH HII, _____! It's great to see you, how was your summer!??!!" Then when they remembered (or were reminded discreetly) they would get all embarassed and exclaim "oh my gosh! I'm sorry! uh, see yah?" LOL. I always felt bad for them, but it made me laugh.

We were told to definitely watch ourselves and DO NOT HAVE prolonged conversation with a PNM because if someone saw that in public and they had it out for you, they could tell the Office of Greek Life and it MIGHT be considered dirty rushing.

Also, you have to watch Facebook. If you were not friends with the PNM before she was a PNM, you SHOULDN'T Facebook friend her until AFTER Bid Day, even if she friends you first.
