Hasty Heart' To Beat Tonight

Rushing Report Reaches
No Specific Conclusions

To Feature



rush, a high percentage of the
women felt that friendships
formed during their first semester
are made among a \broader group
of people than would have been
true with fall rushing. There was
a variety of reactions toward the
gains received from this contact.
Friends Influence
Only four out of ten subjects
participating in rush reported
some influence of friends on their
final decision for affiliation. This
influence seems to have been
stronger during the actual period
of rush for the "pledged" group.
Two assumptions concerning
the emotional stresses of rush
were advanced by the report. The
first is that people are better
able to handle anxiety when they
are in a familiar life situation.
An opposite assumption states
that tension regarding the out-
come of rush may have increased
by waiting a semester for the
Show Anxiety
Although the "pledged" group
demonstrated more worry and
anxiety about affiliation before
rush than those who rushed and
did not affiliate, a substantial
number of "pledged" girls did feel
certain that they would have a
chance to affiliate.
The report also states that ap-
proximately 25 per cent of the
freshmen women were either
anxious about rush or suffered
severe disappointment from it.
In data on the relationship be-
tween rush and studyi g, the com-
mittee discovered that almost two
out of 10 of the women participat-
ing'in rush have failing five-week
grade point averages for the sec-
ond semester, although only a
few of the Women, who were to
participate in rush, reported a
failing five-week grade point av-
erage the first semester.
Winter Hinders
Four out of 10 women, asked
about the most difficult aspects
of spring rush, listed problems
due to winter - cold weather and
transportation difficulties.
In listing their preference as to
spring or fall rush, about two-
thirds of the women preferred the
spring program before rushing.
Only a few of the participants
expressed no preference.
After rush was over, the group
preferring spring rush decreased,
so that less than 40 per cent of
the girls expressed this prefer-
ence. At this time, rush partici-
pants, regardless of whether they
pledged, were divided about equal-
ly into 'those preferring spring
and those favoring fall.
Question Housemothers
Replies from sorority house-
mothers concerning spring rush
indicated that more were against
than for it. Their reasons against
spring rush were i n c l e m e n t
weather, sickness, fatigue, and in-
creased tension.
Almost all sorority presidents
who replied indicated an increase
in tension in the house during
spring rush. A majority also cited
a decreased interest in activities
I during the spring semester.
Answers from dormitory house-
mothers after rush indicated less
tension during rush.
Health Service Reports
Concerning spring rush, the re-
port from Health Service stated,
"After any vacation period it
seems that our students bring in
new germs from other areas. The
large groups of women visiting
the various housing during rush-
ing could have increased the
spread of respiratory diseases
among women."
Of the 156 sorority women who
filled out questionnaires concern-
ing their rush preference, 85 per
cent favored fall rush, 10 per cent
spring, five per cent listed no

The most often mentioned rea-
sons for fall preference were the
possibility of a more efficient rush
program and more benefits both
to rushees and the sororities.
Only one reply was received
from student organizations.
