Rushbiddies Launches Blog!!by Pat Grant on 01/31/11
Welcome to the first Blog Posting for Rushbiddies!
We are on the cusp of the Spring Recruitment Season! Which means we are busily making plans for our next couple of workshops! We are learning more each season about how the different campuses deal with recruitment, or as we in the South like to call it "Rush." Vanderbilt and the University of Virginia have just finished successful Recruitments, and our sources tell us our Rushbiddies' girls have landed very happily with the sororities of their choice on those campuses! Congratulations ladies!!

Last week, Marlea and I coincidentally ran into Tracy J. Robinson - Fashion Consultant & Stylist for our October 2010 workshops. We were all enjoying the successful planning of one of our winter recruitment girls. Evidently, not only did that young lady (who is now successfully placed as a new recruit) get organized and was the girl to RTP (Rush to Pledge) on her campus with her workable and polished wardrobe choices, but her younger sister has become inspired to be more fashion savvy too! This only made me want to remind everyone not to overlook our high school girls coming up right behind big sister! We shouldn't forget our younger high school ladies! While we have been so focused on getting our girls polished for sorority recruitment -- we must not overlook the many necessary times high school girls need to be presented as their best possible self! Too often we can forget about how the girls can have interviews for scholarships, campus activities, internships, and even pageants -- wardrobe planning is essential and not something that should be left for the last minute!
I also want to remind our University of Alabama girls that the Panhellenic weekends are starting this month and go through April. We haved posted a link to the Alabama Panhellenic cite on our facebook page -- just to make sure our Bama Bound girls (and parents) know what the rules are for Spring parties! Feel free to contact us if you have any concerns.
Auburn and Georgia University girls (students already on those campuses) need to register with the Panhellenic office if you are interested in the Spring of 2011 "Rush" or Recruitment. In order to be eligible you should not have pledged and dropped, or accepted a bid from any sorority in the Fall Recruit/Rush of 2010. Let us know if you have questions or concerns! We want everyone to happily find their spot in the Greek community! Warmest Regards from the Rushbiddies!
