I waited on a PNM and her mom at the mall (where I'm working currently) today. They were shopping for last minute recruitment jewelry!

Nope- I screwed up. Formal rush started this past weekend and will end this coming Saturday or Sunday. So we'll see. To be fair, I have not given the chapter any advice on who to pledge or not- rather I just send them links when PNMs post here and let them contact or not contact those individuals.

Oh, I thought it was already over...

How does "formal rush" work? Are there scheduled parties? (I don't have a dog in the hunt, just interested)

My bad x 2. On the way home from the gym this morning I stopped by the house to just check in and the guys told me rush did in fact end this weekend. So it is over after all. I have been busy and just lost track of time I guess.

Srmom- back when I was at Texas, the houses were required to have guys on hand to answer questions/rush people who came by for the 1 week from 2-6 PM. Most houses did not bother to plan anything, and very few rushees- if any- ever came around during those times. For better or worse (I think for better personally), if you come into UT without any spring or summer contacts/rush events- you are pretty much SOL on 50% of the houses (which means just about every viable chapter living in a good house with a decent social schedule.)

These days they do not even have that afternoon requirement. So rushees have to get their game on in the summer or before to have much of a shot at all since there is nothing formal at all about formal rush.

I wonder how the guy did...

Anyone have access to UT facebook to see if perhaps he has put it up on his profile?

Wow. That is unreal- but hey, more power to him and to them.

I remember Phi Delt from my days at Texas. That was about as old school as it got back then. While I wish them well today just as any fraternity, it is just so different from the past that it is hard to mentally digest.

Phi delt? They're awful. They at least used to have a cool old house. This summer they had some dump in an alley off Rio Grande

And I have to give the nod to wingzone, walk in, order chicken tender basket at 2 in the morning, and then get the delivery guy to give you a ride home.
