10 o’clock list: Five Ways for Non-Rushers to Survive Rush Week

What does this mean so many colors so many lines help please.

So it’s rush week, the signs are are very literally everywhere, and suddenly everyone knows more of the greek alphabet than the Classics department ever taught them. If you’re like me, and not planning on rushing, here are some tips and tricks!

1. Close your eyes when you walk into a bathroom. This might seem a little strange, but it is scientifically proven that 83.6% of all rush week posters are in the bathrooms. (Seriously guys, can’t I pee in peace?) I suggest closing your eyes in every bathroom trip and pretending the posters do not exist. Of course, this has some technical issues we’re still working out, but for now it should do the trick!

Do it this week: Rush Week

Greeks at Kenyon (via Greek Council)

We know this post is a little late, as anyone wanting to participate in Rush Week needed to be at the meeting last night, but this is just a reminder from us folks at the Thrill that this week is Rush Week! If you’re still confused as to what exactly Rush Week is, it’s a week where interested students can learn about and meet members of the different Greek organizations on campus. It’s a process of mutual selection, where students decide which groups provide the best fit and groups decide which students will do the same. Like stated at the meeting last night, branch out and go to as many events as possible. Check out some important dates after the jump!  Continue reading
