Ok so I am not the only one that thought the code names were a little naughty.

Mostly I am amused that I almost did the whole thread without anyone noticing.

Well when you first started I thought the code names were a little....uh, interesting but I wasn't sure what to make of it.

I wouldn't have caught on though. (I just googled "ice pearls" and only came up with a special car paint.) Now that I look back on the names though. Duh!

Can't wait to hear about Bid Day!

Okay, bid day...We were told to be in our rooms from 11 to 1, I think, in case we didn't get a bid. The RC's would call us. I remember a bunch of us sitting in one room holding cordless phones, and I remember non-rushing floormates calling us just to see everyone jump when the phone rang.

Anyway, we went to the union, and there were tons of tables in the ballroom, so you had to find your RC's table and pick up your card.

Not shockingly, my bid said:

"The Delta Beta Chapter of Phi Mu Fraternity", which was indeed my first choice, the Marvels. By the time I got back to the dorm room, there was a message from my pref rusher that she would be picking me up at 6 for bid night.

She still gives me crap about the strict silence incident.

Yay for FM! (And I was happy that SK made it so far) I like reading stories from school with tons of chapters!

About the names, I thought that's what they were right away, but I didn't want to be the first one to say anything, kind of like with Rashid's thread.

Some final thoughts on my rush:

I absolutely ended up where I was meant to be, and the chapters knew better than I did at some points. Deep down, I really felt comfortable at Phi Mu, and I was distracted by some of the houses that all the rushees wanted, but I never would have been happy in some of the groups that dazzled me in the first round. I had friends in a lot of chapters, and I was surprised at how well recruitment at U of I placed women where they were ultimately a good fit.

My brother's closest friend at AEPhi was asked to pref me, and didn't do it because she wanted me to choose for myself. I have a lot of respect for that, and tried to afford other girls I knew the same space. I think it is important to tell women to rush, not to join XYZ, when you are talking to friends or neighbors who are starting out at your school.

I am glad we went from SORUSH to PRUSH the following year. It would have been a lot easier just seeing a full schedule without seeing people next to me with a much longer list.

And finally...I can't believe how wrong I was about some of my first impressions.
