Oakleys, a stone necklace, hair product, and an ugly sweater...

To try to get this back on topic. The things have already been said for the most part, but here I go. One real big thing is not to clam up. Rush is essentially a chance for the fraternity to get to make new friends. You are not going to get a bid if brothers can't talk to you and get to know you. Also you definitely should watch your behavior. If you are a complete jerk, chances are you will not get a bid.Fell free to talk and ask questions yourself, as taking a bid is a hard decision in itself.

Be careful even when not at rush events. Greeks are pretty well connected as to what is going on at local bars and such. If you make an ass of yourself, they are going to find out about it. Talk to the sorority girls, be pleasurably to them, you never know how close to they are to some of the fraternities. I cant say all, but at some schools they can make you or break you.

I can say for certain that look does not go over well pretty much anywhere in California.

And PhiGam you're right, you'd get laughed out of town for croakies out here too. I'm shocked people still wear them at all.

Croakies are extremely fashionable in most of the south. The are functional too, I have some of the floating ones so that when I go fishing I don't loose my shades in the water.

I think the worst thing you can do during rush is nothing. You don't want the reaction to your name to be, "Who?"

Or, "The guy who left drunk and ran into ___'s car and just drove off?"
Or, "The guy who said he hated [insert race and/or religion]?"
Or, "The guy who looks like he came out of the New Haircut video?"

I've heard all these. Never good.

Disclaimer: This advice is based on experiences from a campus where, out of the 30,000+ student population each year, not one person uses the terms "croakies" or "gel head." Most would also be unable to define these terms.

Are Costas restricted to the south as well?

I wouldn't know, they're definitely popular here. GDIs have started to wear them en masse along with Oakleys (ugly). I prefer Ray Bans myself but I have seen some really nice costas (LOVE their blue frames).

Yes, GDIs are running all over the place with them. But every Greek has them here. I like the ones with the green frames. Oakleys are starting to die out around here, its pretty much 100% costas.

NO JOKE!

This picture is hilarious!

I just emailed it to my son telling him that they are new rushees and that his fraternity better bid them quick because they are sure to get bids from all the top fraternities. I can't wait to get his response!!!
