You know "that" bag- the one that your best friend's mom carries around that literally has anything and everything you will ever need in one place. Well, you want to make the purse you carry around during rush week "that" bag. You need to be prepared for everything. We have made a list of sorority recruitment essentials along with a few extra tips to help you prepare for recruitment week!
First, you need a bag! Your bag needs to be large enough to fit everything in it you will possibly need. It also needs to be cute!
Don't forget your cell phone! You are going to want your phone when you are in between parties. And don't forget a charger! Your phone battery is going to drain quickly and by the time you realize it your phone will be dead. So whatever you do, bring your charger!
You will have a lunch break. Don't forget your wallet with your campus card in it! How else are you going to pay for that much-needed meal in the middle of the day?
Water is a must have, so bring your water bottle! You will be exhausted talking to so many people! Stay hydrated with your water, and don't forget a snack!
You will need to refresh your makeup often. Rush week is at the end of the summer; it is going to be hot ladies! Bring your makeup to re-apply in between parties.
We recommend bringing mints instead of gum. You will be talking to a lot of people during this week, and you do not want to be smacking in their faces. Keep your breath fresh with a pack of mints.
You will be visiting a lot of different sororities; how do you expect to remember each and everyone?! Bring a notebook and a pen to take notes. Make it easy on yourself when it is time to make your preferences.
No one wants to be stinky! Bring deodorant and don't forget to apply often! You will be outside most of the time, so make sure you smell delightful! You want to make the best impression and be remembered!
These little babies will be a life savor! You will most likely be wearing wedges or heels at some point in the week. Make sure your feet do not kill you. Bring some flippy floppies to help you out in between parties.
The weather is so unpredictable. Be on the safe side and bring an umbrella or poncho. You don't want to be unprepared for the weather.
