Need I say more?
Tonight is the night. For you. And you. And you. And You. And def for you too. You look like a Pi Phi, but I think I’m more of a Kappa. What do you think? I really like the Think Theta FB campaign. It’s so fun. Doesn’t girl flirting suck? I always say the most awkward things! It’s like, what classes are you taking? Ya know? What college are you in? I like your boots. Thanks you too. Ugh, so stressed.
If you’re anything like me, Sorority Season is definitely an added stress on top of shopping period. But have no fear, the ladies from Hercampus.com have got us covered! They wrote a guide to Sorority Rush that’s helpful. Anyways, here’s the Cliff Notes version:
- There are three sororities at Yale: Kappa Kappa Gamma, Pi Beta Phi and Kappa Alpha Theta.
- By joining a sorority at Yale, you get to know many more people on campus, especially upperclassmen
- Upperclassmen can be great resources for academic and extracurricular advice, as well as just campus life in general-sororities are nation
- Wide organizations with chapters all around the country-all sororities are committed to philanthropy projects, and joining Greek Life is a great way to get involved in community service
- But, sorority life extends beyond formal meetings as members choose to spend time together in informal settings or at mixers
- Rush week is a great way to meet Yale students even if you decide that sorority life is not for you.
- Accepting a bid is not mandatory.
- Hazing is against Yale University policy.-Sororities do not haze during recruitment, nor do they haze at any point during the new member initiation process.
- Girls involved in Greek Life can no longer talk to potential new members about recruitment or Greek Life in general.
- Events are semi-formal-dress as though you were going out for a fancy dinner: dark jeans or nice leggings, sweater or cute top, boots etc
- We would also caution wearing a watch, as checking the time frequently can be distracting from conversations.
- Rush events are Wednesday, January 23 (7:30-10:15 pm), Friday, January 25 (7-9:45 pm), and Sunday, January 27 (12 – 2:45pm).
