  • Recruitment Series (3): Rush Tips!

    R U S H  T I P S

    It's scary and intimidating to not know what to expect during recruitment. As a PNM, here are some things to keep in mind!

     

    I T 'S   A B O U T   Y O U 

    Yup. Let it soak in. The point of recruitment is for sororities to look for new members to join their organization. They will be looking at your personality and compatibility. So don't be afraid to be yourself! Show off your awesome personality. However, if anxiety gets the best of you.. relax and take 3 long deep breaths. Go outside and get some air. 

     

    S M A L L  T A L K

    It's dreadful but don't worry! Keep away from the normal topics of conversation and try some of these. It'll be refreshing to hear something new.

    • What's your favorite holiday?
    • Would you rather give up your phone or tv? 
    • What's your favorite show? OTP?
    • If you could travel somewhere right this minute without worrying about money, where would you go? 
    • Milkshakes or juices?
    • Would you rather be a super hero or greek god? Powers?
    • Cheeseburgers or burritos? 
    • If there was a zombie apocalypse, perfect place to hide? 

    *Think of anything fun! 

     

    M A K E U P 

    Keep it natural. Recruitment isn't the time to try out a new smokey eye. It's best to keep it simple! Have some lip gloss and translucent powder in case you need to touch up! 

     

    S H O E S

    If you go with heels, make sure to have some quick flats to change into when you're walking from house to house or to your car. You'll be doing a lot of walking. Your feet will thank you.

     

    R E M E M B E R 

    To have fun! This experience shouldn't be stressful. Relax, enjoy the company, and be yourself! 

     

    Until next time! xo

      We'll be starting a fun series of Recruitment posts to help you through this Rush/Recruitment Season! 

      R E C R U I T M E N T    E S S E N T I A L S

      • MINTS: You're going to be talking to girls all day. Be sure to pop a mint and make your breath is minty fresh. First impression is everything! 
      • DEODORANT: Chances are, the weather will still be warm during recruitment. Be sure to keep up with the heat and plan accordingly. Personal hygiene counts! 
      • SUNNIES: The sun is not your friend! Be sure to protect your eyeballs with cute sunnies. You don't want to be squinting half the time! 
      • SUNSCREEN: Again, the sun is not your friend! Sunburn is no joke. Make sure to lather up and protect your skin or else you'll be peeling for a week! 
      • COMFY SHOES: You're going to be standing.. A LOT! Wear comfy shoes to save your soles! 
      • GREEK GEAR: Recruitment is the BEST time to show off all your greek gear! Our website is having a great deal! Use our coupon code > GREEK14 < and get 10% your entire order! Rock your booth with the cutest accessories. 
      • PENS: DON'T forget to bring a pen! Chances are, you'll need to write down someone's information. Always have one on the go. Not having something as simple as a pen looks unprofessional. 
      • HAND SANITIZER: You'll be shaking a lot of hands. Sanitize up and make sure to kill germs! 
      • WATER: Don't forget to hydrate! It's the most important thing to have.
