Bid Or No Bid
YESTERDAY concluded three hectic weeks of rushing and "successful"
rushees will receive bids Saturday. Sorority women will have an oppor-
tunity to catch a second breath after planning the many events and attend-
ing endless parties and hash sessions. Rushees will stop receiving calls from
sororitiespreparing exactly the "right" clothes to wear to parties, and try-
ing to decide which invitations to accept and which to decline to best ad-
vantage. Independents will welcome their sorority co-workers back to ac-
tivities, and professors will stop wearing harried expressions caused by ill-
S FAR we have ignored the rushees who want to pledge, but who will not
receive bids Saturday. It is inevitable that there will be disappointments
when 686 women have registered for rushing and the 18 sororities on campus
can pledge, at the most, 380 women.
To many rushees the "no bid" announcement will read like an epitaph.
They have heard that "you have to belong to a sorority or you don't rate"
or "every one pledges" or -"you'll be lost on a big campus without an affilia-
tion." All of these generalities are false. Along with Panhellenic .members,
independent women occupy an important role in campus activities. Inde-
pendents have, in Assembly, a strong, progressive organization which offers
a group to which they may belong. "Everyone" doesn't pledge; in fact, af-
filiated women are a minority on this campus. And because the emphasis
at Michigan is upon scholarship and activities rather than on sorority af-
filiations, no rushee need feel that a brand of "no bid" will be attached to
her for the rest of her college life.
SORORITIES must limit their membership and are forced to make deci-
sions between rushees. Sorority members try to base their deci-
sions on pertinent differences between women, such as personality, abil-
ity to get along with the group, and strength of recommendations. But, when
rushees have been narrowed down thus far, less important considerations
must be used to select the prospective pledges. Many a hair-breadth differ-
ence has made one woman an independent and another a sorority member.
Sororities themselves recognize their inability to make accurate judgements
in every instance. Unfavorable first impressions or lack of sufficent knowl-
edge makes it impossible many times for sororities to make all the right
decisions. It is very possible to form a completely false opinion of a rushee
from just meeting her at parties and teas.
Rushees, too, make mistakes in their selection of the sorority they
would like to pledge, or in even choosing to belong to a sorority at all. Some
members have found that life in a sorority house may become a burden of
trivialities-a handicap to attaining more important social and academic
goals. Many women would be unhappy as sorority members and would re-
bel against the forced social activities, chapter meetings, task of rushing,
and other obligations to their chapter which they would have to assume as
members of the group.
STUDENTS on the University of Michigan campus feel that there are
many more important things than sorority affiliations or lack of them.
Social contacts and group life are admittedly important, but a full, success-
ful college career can be achieved by independents as well as by sorority
