Color me excited, confused, tired, bored, ecstatic! Above all, color me important-for without me the Greek system would fade into oblivion. In this special issue of Th e Phoenix we hope to give you ideas and suggestions for improving your rush program. The key words are creativity, determination, and sisterhood. Plan now to keep your rushees swathed in bright, happy, glowing colors this year!
RUSH?!! How Do I Do That? by Elaine Schiverdecker National Rush Chairman
For a brief moment, let's imagine that I am a non-Greek coed. Forget how old I really am. I have been receiving all kinds of little notes, flyers, information cards and things from the sororities on campus, trying to get me to sign up for rush. I have met and worked with Greeks in student government and in the dorm, and even in class, but that thing called "Formal Rush" sounds so . . . stiff. Also, they can only take a few each year. I want to be accepted, but I also fear rejection. Maybe I don't really need sororities after all. Does that sound typical? Perhaps it is. Are we, as sorority women forgetting those very same fears we had before going through rush? Are we forgetting what made most of us go ahead and jump into the competition? Also, are we content to sit back and let rushees come to us? Some of you have already discovered that it does not work that way anymore. Girls have always wanted to be acepted on a one-to-one basis. Can we honestly say we do this in a str-ict formal rush period? When you can meet and get to know rushees better during open rush, are you taking advantage of that relaxed situation? The latest on rush at several universities, as reported by the National Interfraternity Conference Committee of Membership, is Greek groups who have adopted some form of yearround, unrestricted open pledging. In most cases they all began or continued, the practice of summer rushing. A few have dropped all grade requirements. Others dropped fees and shortened pledge periods. All of the changes made by these universities have made rush what it is supposed to be ... CONTINUOUS! 4
Most of you, if not all of you, operate now on a formal rushj open rush system. You will probably admit that your open rush program is neither as profitable nor as aggressive as you would like it to be. You are probably very thankful for the formal rush period when you pledge your largest number of girls. I imagine you feel more secure operating within the framework of a Panhellenic which governs who you can rush, when you can rush, and, in most cases, how you can rush. Therefore, through this system you must make rushing more worthwhile. Panhellenic must work as one. Remember the campuses whose percentage of Greeks had risen or stayed the same were those whose sororities worked together. Panhellenic must meet often and .each representative should know how her chapter feels about each issue. An effective rush program through Panhellenic must have continuous publicity. Greeks should be part of the campus, not an isolated group of people. The following pointers may be helpful. These were included in a letter to the rush chairman giving the results of the Greek Preparation Questionnaire I sent out in the fall. They are different ways to advertise the Greek's existence. -Set up a high school public relations program. Perhaps "High School Day" or "High School Daze" where groups interested in your campus are taken on a tour of your school and allowed to participate in various events for a day or weekend. Of course, the Greeks would sponsor this through the school. THE PHOENIX
-Sorority-Fraternity seminar in early fall. A variation is a "Greek-Freak Confrontation" where anyone interested can state his views. -Greek posters all over campus, even some that upport other events sponsored by non-Greek organizations. For instance: "John Doe and his Gang of No Names" in concert Friday ... "The Greeks are going, why don't you?" Just one way to show the Greeks do support things they don't happen to sponsor. -Crests or window displays in the Student Union. -Color Day for sorority outfits. Stress individuality through group participation by all A'LA's wearing red, but it could be in pants, dress, skirt, or even hot pants . . . -Brochures, newsletters, rush information, and friendly notes mailed to incoming freshmen before school starts and before rush season.
to the counselors' soronttes. This program encourages girls to stay in rush after the ru h begins because Panhellenic gives them "someone to turn to" for help. They are not "left out in the cold," especially on ampuses with strict silence enforced. -Greek week in early fall could include such things as street dances, seminars, lectures, concerts, cookouts, picnics, Olympics, rock concert, open smokers, open rap sessions, intramurals, inter-Greek parties, mixers, and song fest. -Publicity of Greek service projects, emphasizing all Greek, and not one or two individual, groups. -Panhellenic-sponsored Brunch for Freshmen. -Rush teams through Panhellenic to visit dorms talking to interested girls.
Now we come to the next step. Using many of these suggestions and more, Panhellenic has -Information tables set up at registration in advertised completely.

Girls have signed up like crazy. All your songs are perfect. The "Knocking sorority is fashionable these rooms are spotless. Wait! Have we forgotten days, but that only puts us with some of something? Oh, yes, did someone turn over the the best company-God and the churches, sofa pillow so that the burns won' t show?

Well, what did we forget? to a group of people of one's own choosing The party's about to begin ... I know! What in order to create and mold a single piece am I going to talk about?!! Right. What are of that new and better world we hope to you going to talk to the rushee about? You can have. The key, of course, is commitment tell her about sorority, but how can you find out and work, not isolation and destruction. what kind of person she is? This seems to be To be effective, the commitment must be the number one problem for every chapter in genuine and sincere, the work, long and every Greek organization everywhere. You can arduous.

I would like to recJEANINE JACOBS GOLDBERG ommend one possible solution. Grand Archon's address Each member should concentrate her rushing The Sphinx of Phi Sigma Sigma on a particular rushee whose interests are similar. The member makes a point to get to know,
SUMMER 197 1
or at least meet, that particular rushee. Already you can see that there are certain factors that must be in line before this technique can be fully executed. Some of these are the following. Each rushee must fill out a sheet through Panhellenic that gives information about her interests, honors, and activities. She should also turn in a photo for each sorority, if possible. Some schools require that this be done. One sheet must be filled out for each sorority through carbon or some other similar process. The sheets are then turned in to each sorority at least three days before rush begins. Preferably one week to one month. Time must be strictly set aside during rush preparation to go over and over and over these sheets. Some chapters use opaque projectors for group viewing. Time is important here. This is another reason why I feel we should de-emphasize skits, decorations, favors, and nametags and emphasize strongly getting to know the rushee. There would then be more time to devote to learning as much about each rushee as you can before you meet her. As you go over the information sheets, pick certain girls that have interests similar to yours. Campuses that have large turnouts of girls may have to choose more girls than smaller campuses, but do not overdo that. Pick one or two for each party group. For example, Carol Wadsman, rushee from Toronto, Canada, interested in leather crafts. If you also like to work with leather, you might choose Carol. You know when she will be coming through because Panhellenic has arranged the groups of rushees in alphabetical order. You
could escort her from the entrance, but that is unlikely to happen with large groups of rushees. Simply make it a point to rotate to her or to see her before she leaves the party. Even if it is just to say, "Carol, I am sorry I didn't have a chance to talk with you. I wanted to find out more about your work in leather." She will be surprised and then maybe she will remember she wrote that on her information sheet. Then she will be flattered to think someone remembered it! If you do have the opportunity to talk with her, do not monopolize her time, but let her know you have taken an interest in her. Perhaps at later parties you can take her around and make sure she meets everyone. The best way to gain sisters is to start with a friendship. One of the best ways to start a friendship is through mutual interests ... with one exception-two girls who are mutually interested in the same guy. With rushees, find one whose interests match yours, and you at least have an opener for conversation. Basically the idea is that simple. How elaborate you make it is up to you. How you work it into your Panhellenic system will have to be up to you. The general feeling on reports and comments seems to be that most sororities and fraternities are changing with new trends . . . not to encourage the "way out" element, but to encourage those sincere and serious-minded, yet fun-loving students who need to belong. They are there on every campus and we must let them know we are there, needing them as much as they need us.
ALUMNAE! We need you! Much of the success of our collegiate rush depends on you. Please help up by sending recommendations to our chapters. Alpha Sig rushes not only freshmen, but sophomores, juniors, even seniors. Do you know a girl who would make a great Alpha Sig? How about sharing the fun of knowing her with us? Recommendation forms can be obtained by writing to National Headquarters, 1201 East Walnut, Springfield, Missouri 65802. Recommendations should be sent to the Rush Chairmen listed in this magazine.
Best Rush Party 1970-1971 The most successful party may not be the party with the cutest skit and favors. A very casual party may have an equally casual skit that generates the feeling of sisterhood each member shares. I feel the following party gives a very down-to-earth view of sorority life. Feel free to adapt or change, for what works well on one campus may not on another. -Elaine Shiverdecker, National Rush Chairman
"Out of the past, Into the future'' Beta Upsilon Chapter Dress: casual clothes. Nametags: actives-open scrapbook. rushees-trunk. Refreshments: open-faced sandwiches served with red punch, nuts and mints. Decorations: none, except for card tables covered with white cloths; centerpieces feature small elves (Beta Upsilon's mascot).
SKIT Setting: an attic with trunks and typical attic "junk." Characters: Anne-a girl getting ready to go to college. Sara-a friend who is helping her to pack. Mrs. Arnold-Anne's mother, an A".i.A alum.
Anne and Sara enter the attic and are searching through the junk. Anne: Oh, I just have to find something to put all my clothes in for college! My suitcases just aren't going to be enough.
Sara: I know what you mean. I'm having the same trouble at my house. I j.ust have too much to take with all my blankets and towels and things. Gee aren' t you getting excited! Anne: Boy, am I! Just think of all those men and parties and stuff! Sara: And classes and studying. Anne: Well, sure, but that won't be anything new. Oh, here's a trunk (opens trunk). Oh, drat, it's full of junk. What is all this? (Picks up small composite) . Hey, look, there's my mother! Doesn' t she look different?
Sara: She sure does. I didn't know your mother was in a sorority. Hmmmm, Alpha Sigma Alpha. Anne: Oh, sure. She still goes to meetings sometimes now. Let's call her and ask her about this stuff. Hey, Mom, come up here for a minute, will you? Sara: (rummaging through the trunk) . Look at all those elves! I wonder what they mean? In the background a group sings the first verse and chorus of the Elf Song. Instead of an elf, Sara could find another AL.A mascot, or pledge pillow, or scrapbook, and a song could be sung to suit whatever is found. As the object is discovered the lights could fade and a spotlight played on the group singing. Mrs. Arnold: (now in the attic) . What does what mean? Anne: All these elves and pictures and flowers and things. Mrs. Arnold: Oh, that's my sorority trunk. These are all the things I collected while I was an Alpha Sig in college. Gee, I haven't looked at these things in years. Oh, look, here is the garter we had as a favor for our Golden Gateways Dance. (The name of any chapter dance may be substituted.) Anne: Well, why do you have all of these elves in here? (picks up a door knocker) . Mrs. A: Well, the elf was the mascot of our chapter. Each sorority has one and this was ours. The one you have there is a very special elf. This was one just like each of my sisters had and we put them on our doors in the dorm to let everyone know that an Alpha Sig lived there. Anne: And what's this piece of paper? It looks like your pin .
Verse 2 and chorus of the Elf Song. Mrs. A.: This is the pin 1we wore when the pledges had Turn-About-Day. That's when all the actives become pledges for the day and the pledges become actives. Anne : Really? That's neat. What's with the paper chain? It looks like something we made when we were kids for Christmas. Mrs. A.: Oh, my gosh. I haven't seen that in years. That's from the first time I met your father. We had a Trade Party (mixer) with Triangle Fraternity and helped them decorate their Christmas tree. Your father was president of the fraternity and he and I were kind of thrown together since I was presi-
dent of Alpha Sig. But, Anne, I've told you that story before .... Sara: Oh, but I haven't heard it before, Mrs. Arnold. That's really romantic. Did you date the rest of the time? Mrs. A.: Well, except for a few problems, yes. Why here are the flowers from our Golden Gateways Dance. That's the pledge dance each spring and we went to that. And here's a picture he took of us during Campus Revue. (Song Fest, Talent Night, Skit Night, etc.) Sara: What's Campus Rev,ue? Anne: Oh, let me tell her, Mom. I saw one two years ago. That's when all the fraternities and sororities get together and write and put on a ten minute skit with music and dancing and everything. They are judged and big trophies are given. Mom's old sorority won first place that year and they were very happy. You should have seen them jumping around and screaming! Mrs. A.: In fact, here's the costume I wore one year. Sara: Gee, that's interesting. Did you win that year? Mrs. A.: No, but we did win second and got Best Costumes. Anne: Boy, look at this! I'd hate to get hit with this! (Holds up a paddle.) Mrs. A.: I did once. But that doesn't happen any more now that all pledge programs have been modernized and the -hazing and some of the silliness have been eliminated. Sara: Mrs. Arnold, I don' t mean to sound---(perhaps a shrug and funny expression) but isn't there more to Greek life than dances and parties and skits and things like that? Mrs. A.: Certainly there is, Sara.
Verse 3 and chorus of Elf Song. Mrs. A.: There is that certain, almost undefinable, thing called sisterhood and that's what sorority is really all about. All of these things (points to trunk) are nice, but what counts is having a group of girls that you call sisters. You fight, you make up: and you love them just like your blood sisters and they are always there. Ready to help in anyway they can . . . making a dress in a hurry for a party, staying up all . night, if necessary, to do it. Or listening to your personal problems. They love you for what THE PHOENIX
you are inside, not for the kind of clothes you wear or the way you talk, or how tall or short you are. The Alpha 路 Sig motto could almost be "We Care" because we do, about everyone and everything. The National Philanthropic Project is aid to the mentally retarded and each chapter does its part to show they care. Sara: Gee, Mrs. Arnold, you're right. There is so much more. I can hardly wait to go through rush and find my sisters.
Anne: Neither can I, but I know that I'll find my isters in A"i:..A.
Anne sings solo "Look to the Star." Mrs. A.: Yes, life as an Alpha Sig is truly a beautiful and rewarding experience. Mrs. Arnold starts singing " When you pledge Alpha Sig" and the chapter softly joins m .
We have printed Beta Upsilon's songs. Any song that your chapter knows well could be substituted.
THE ELF SONG
(tune: Swinging on a Star) An elf is the little man we hang on our door He hides under mushrooms and in trees His face is funny and he's full of cheer He's always laughing though you seldom hear So, if you want an elf to come your way Come be our sis in A"i:..A And would you like to reach for a star Have sisters wherever you are And be better off than you are And would you like to have a pin? Verse 2 Chorus 2 Our pin is the symbol of our dear A"i:..A It stands for our love and friendships true The pearls and rubies will shine always To light our paths in everything we do So, if you want a pin, that's A-OK Come be our sis in A"i:.. A. And would you like to reach for a star Have sisters wherever you are And be better off than you are And would you share our sisterhood? Verse 3 Chorus 3 Our sisterhood is for the shy and the bold We all are proud to wear our green and gold
Our sisterhood is filled with friendships true It just could be the very one for you So, if you want friendship here to stay Come be our sis in A"i:.. A. And you'll be reaching for our star Have sisters wherever you are And be better off than you are Come be our sis in A"i:..A. You could be swinging on a star.
LOOK TO THE STAR
(tun e: Look to the Star) On the day I was born, said my mother to me "I've an elegant legacy waiting for thee. For you never grow old and you never stand still With Alpha Sig sisters beyond the next hill." Chorus Look, look, look to the star Reach for that star to aspire, seek, attain Look, look, dreams can come true You can find sisters in Alpha Sig, too.
A NEW LOOK AT RUSH by Zoe Taylor Greek Consultant, Operation Greek
When you are looking for new friends do you call in a group of girls, line them up and look them over to see who LOOKS as though she might make a good friend? If you were seeking friends would you sit in a chair and ask prospective friends to perform for you, sing songs or put on a show? Or would you be more apt to make a friend by walking with her through the campus and just talking, by having a coke together and just talking? Is rushing fun for sorority girls? Is it a learning experience for our members in terms of developing social skills? How to talk about feelings, how to make strangers feel comfortable in a new environment? We hear a lot of talk these days about "unstructured rush." Unstructured rush does not mean disorganized rush. It means eliminating the structures that we have placed upon ourselves which create barriers to friendships. Time is a structure. In planning a rush program we must deal with time. Do we plan time for making friends without feeling rushed, overworked or hurried? Place is a structure. Do we select the best place or places for talking? Do we know how to talk about sorority affiliation? Today's student wants to know what it feels like to be part of a collegiate community. Do you involve new students in sorority activities so that they can feel what it's like? Or do you just show them one side of sorority life? Last week I talked to a girl who said she had thought about belonging to a sorority but found that they had too many rules. I explained that sorority girls made rules to provide for harmony within the chapter. She said, "Oh, I understand all that, I mean the rules before you even get into a sorority." She told me that her sister had gone through rush on another campus and the minute she signed her registration card she discovered she could not talk to her relatives or friends in sororities. She could talk to anyone 10
on campus who would tell her how terrible it was to belong to a sorority, but she could not openly communicate with people who knew what it was like to be in a sorority. This girl told me that her sister had decided sorority girls were phonies. One week they were full of smiles and gushing all over her in chapter houses, but for two weeks or a month later they barely spoke on campus. I tried to explain to the girl why the sororities have silence periods, but I could not justify it. Who are we really rushing against these days? Aren' t we competing with apartment houses and anti-Greek p~opa足 ganda? When I was a rush counselor for my sorority I would make chapter visits around the United States and the first thing I'd do is to read the Panhellenic rush rules. I would ask the girls why they had certain rules. Usually they replied that it was to eliminate compe!ition. Now, sororities compete for scholarship awards yet I find no rules which say that chapter members cannot read a textbook the week before finals. I find no rules which say that sorority members may not speak to their instructors before their examinations. I have found rush rules which forbid sorority girls in a rushing situation to say, "Hope to see you again." Yet when we are competing for scholarship we have no rules on what may be written on an examination paper. I have found rush rules which are made to "protect" rushees. Are we giving today's student credit for being able to make a decision on friendship? Is it impossible to INFORM rushees about selectivity processes rather than pass rules which leave them confused? Do your rush rules eliminate creativity within chapters by structuring a place for rush parties which need elaborate decorations to show any kind of individuality of a chapter? Are your chapter members so exhausted with ostentatious party preparations that they can barely talk to THE PHOENIX
rushees? Do you spend more time practicing for skits than you do for developing communication skills? The following is an outline for developing a less-structured Panhellenic rush: GOAL: To plan a rush program that will provide opportunities for the greatest possible number of rushees to pledge, and to make rush a happy and fun experience for rushees and members. TIME: Rush should be long enough to get to know people, and short enough to prevent boredom. Use time so that rush is not "rushed." DECISIONS TO MAKE: • How long should the total formal rush period be? • How many party periods are needed for the narrowing of interest while broadening friendships? • How long should each party be? • How to use the available time (as much of the day as possible) without feeling hurried. • How to maintain a feeling of flexibility with time • Schedule so that travel time (for off-campus parties) is not included in party time. PLACE: Give as much flexibility as possible to the chapters. Go where the action is! • Why restrict parties to living rooms, or even to chapter houses? • Freedom and flexibility will encourage creativity.
• • • •
Eliminate regulations on singing Eliminate set times for skits Use Panhellenic name tags Keep refreshments simple, but let each group decide what to serve • Simplify or eliminate the rules regarding silence and contact with rushees outside the rush parties • Ideas for parties: Picnics in local parks Sightseeing tours Taffy-pulls Barbecues Softball or other sport parties Service project-make something for a local charity Sing-a-longs Slide shows Attend a campus function .
Good rushers will plan parties that aid rushees in feeling a part of a chapter, rather than a spectator AT a chapter! CONTROLS: 1. Budget should be established for the total formal rush period -chapters can put their money where it will help them the most 2. Quota Limitation-combined with continuous open bidding, should allow groups to increase their membership, and afford the opportunity of membership to those girls who want to join.
TWO LEVEL RUSH: Panhellenic Rush concurrent with chapter rush. Panhellenic's goal: To assist rushees to feel comfortable in new situations rush counselors ACTION: The real action is the one-to-one rerushee orientation cruiting, when each member shows and exTo meet new people plains the values and purposes of fraternity living in dorm with other rushees membership to a rushee. door signs with names of occupants • Members must develop in this new type To make new friends of rush, because it puts the responsibility of rushee orientation rushing back on them floor parties in the dorm To feel part of a cohesive group • Members must offer the relaxed and friendly small discussion groups at orientation atmosphere needed to get to know the meetings with rush counselors rushees and for them to get to know the To identify with the sorority system members rushee orientation • Give chapters as much fre.e dom in their rush rush counselors planning as possible
OPERATION GREEK Copyright 1971
Rushee. Orientation Involvement Rather Than Entertainment! Today's rushee wants to be involved in fraternity activities ... they want to feel what it's like to be a part of a group, not be a passive audience entertained by a group!
Provide Concrete Answers to Rushee's and Parents Questions: (Help the rushee relate personally to the fraternity idea through small group discussions)
RUSHEE ORIENTATION'S PURPOSE: To sell the system with supporting facts, concrete answers to rushees' and parents' questions, and in terms of the individual's quest for a broader personal experience in college and the opportunity for lifetime friendships. Orientation must be a united effort by all groups, stressing that all groups:
I. What goals have you set for yourself in college?

Meetings, even several hundred people, m ust provide a time for small group discussions (6- 8 people only) and the involvement of all rushees.

Get Commitment Quickly
Informal rush cannot be strung out for weeks and months. Even a chapter needing membership growth desperately must set time limits for rushing. It may mean that rush for a chapter will be just one week; or it may be that a chapter needs to rush informally several different times during the term. Rush becomes boring and lazy if there aren't definite goals of a number to be pledged, and a definite time for getting them. You don't have a pledge until you've asked the rushee to become a member! So, letting rushees know you want them, that you will be issuing them a bid soon, and finding out how they feel about you is as important as your first contact with them. Make the rushee commit himself quickly: Invite to party or chapter activity Have sign-up for rush Take name and some personal information Have rushee complete an information form

Special guests at State Day 1971 were Marcia Mossbarger, Miss Missouri ; Elaine Shiverdecker, National Rush Chairman; and Linda Wyrick, National Field Representative. The ALPHA GAMMAS at Indiana University spent a rewarding Sunday helping with the Heart Fund Drive. Working with Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity, they placed among the top of those collecting. Formal rush for BETA BETA was followed by Sigma Chi Derby Days, in which Debbie Marrs was first runner-up for the beauty contest. Cardinal Key is a Senior Women's National Honor Society at Kansas State Teachers College. EPSILON EPSILON is proud of its Cardinal Key members: Ginny Garrett, Janie Edwards, Ruth Dittemore, Darla Giggy, Alane Stork, Paula Gotters, and Joyce Montgomery.
