I am rushing in the fall. I added a girl on Instagram from a sorority at the college I am rushing at. However, she requested to follow me (which I allowed) and never accepted my request. Should I be worried? I know some sororities don't like PNMs talking to current members or whatever. Or am I way overreacting?

I definitely think you are overreacting. As a guideline, obviously don’t post anything you wouldn’t want a future employer to see… but a lot of the time it just becomes awkward if the active follows a bunch of pnms that don’t end up joining their chapter. I don’t think it has anything to do with you personally at all. If you’re super concerned, you can block her until after recruitment and it would just appear as though you deleted your account.

What are some questions I should ask during rush to help me stand out?

It kind of depends on how formal the recruitment is.. but you can ask questions about past events, the philanthropy, what the members are proud of about their chapter… try to develop questions based on what is presented to you. Ask how they get involved with their philanthropy, what academic programming might exist, etc.

Wait until sessions about finances and fees to ask dues-related questions unless a member brings it up or the recruitment style is informal (it might be appropriate to ask about it at a campus with small greek life, whereas a huge Greek system would find it improper for you to ask in conversation).

The most important thing you can do to stand out is just display your ability to keep conversation flowing - it can be awkward for all of us but if we had a good conversation with you we will remember you!

Joining a sorority is pretty expensive, but does that all get paid at once? Can you use students loans? How does paying your fees work?

Fees depend on chapter, campus, and housing situation for the most part. You pay typically per semester, and you will often find affordable payment plans are an option if you ask. Chapters I am familiar with pay their dues online, and some offer the option to also pay in cash. The way you use your student loans is a personal decision - because of interest you really should consider not using it for anything but necessities but it is something to possibly discuss with your financial advisor. Many international organizations offer scholarships that can help pay, won for involvement and academic achievements.

What kind of questions will be asked through recruitment??

Anything to get to know who you are and what you stand for. Think job interview meets first date meets coffee date with a friend I guess. Anything could come up as long as it’s not too personal/private. Try preparing an elevator speech to practice talking about yourself and you accomplishments and interests. It sounds like it would be easy but talking about yourself under pressure can be a challenge for many people and you don’t want to say “ummmm, uhhhhh” constantly to fill space! Just don’t recite a speech during recruitment - use it as a prep tool :)

Alpha Phi Omega Little Mermaid letters

Do you know how to trace Lilly prints onto canvas, paddles, etc? Thanks!!

An easy way is to trace it with tissue paper or tracing paper and then put that tracing over the surface you want to paint and go over this with some permanent marker…. You want to test it out first on a different surface to make sure your paint will completely cover the marker that transfers through first though.

Hi! I'm about to be a college freshman at University of Arkansas and I'm planning to rush. I'm super excited and very optimistic about it but I'm slightly worried I won't get into one of the top sororities I want to get into because I have a pretty large tattoo on my arm. Do you think I should cover it for rush so they can get to know me first before I show off my tat?

My best advice is to think of recruitment as one huge job interview. If you would leave it uncovered then go for it. I don’t have a tattoo so I can’t really relate. I mean you want them to be people who will accept you with or without one, but you don’t want them to potentially focus more on the tattoo rather than who you are as a person. Anyone have any advice to sound off?

So I made this for a trade that never happened. Would anyone care to buy it or trade for it? It’s not my organization or I’d keep it, and there’s not a TriDelt chapter on campus. If anyone is interested, please message me!
