WOULD YOU CARE for a mint? How about a cigarette? Need
a light? The rushees are well taken care of by the actives.
A RUSHEE'S FIRST view of a sorority-an open door and the
happy smiles of the actives waiting to greet prospective ledges.
THE RUSH CHAIRMAN greets each rushee and introduces her
to a member of the sorority who will serve as her guide for the
fifty minutes she will spend in the house.
AT THE END of each party the rushees are serenaded out the door by actives clapping and singing the praises of their house. These
serenades are the highlight of the first set where,. because of the large number of girls in each group, nearly everyone is forced to sit
on the floor.
IN THE SECOND SET of parties, the girls dress a little more formally and are treated to refreshments. This poses an additional test of the poise and manners of
the rushees. The rushees car be invited back to as many as 23 houses for the sec ond set of parties. But they may return to no more than eight. In some houses the
second set is nearly as crowded as the first, forcing many to sit on the floor again.
AFTER A THIRD, more informal set of parties, comes the final stage of rush: final desserts. Rush-
ees return to no more than four houses for the third set, no more than two for final desserts. A i
ceremony of some kind, such as that pictured above, is usually an integral part of the final dessert.
