A Girls Guide To Sorority Recruitment, A Lookbook – Vintage Charm

A Girls Guide To Sorority Recruitment, A Lookbook

Posted by Nancy Allodi on

 

 

RECRUITMENT LOOKBOOK – For the incoming freshman preparing for fall/spring rush!

 

Sorority recruitment can feel like venturing into the unknown regarding preparation and the experience of the week itself. Your best bet for success is dressing so you’ll feel confident, original, and yourself. The goal of rushing is to find community that helps you learn, grow, and succeed!

 

Vintage Charm is excited to assist you in navigating your looks for the week! We made a thorough look-book using Vintage Charm merchandise that you can purchase in our stores and online.

 

Interestingly, different schools – especially dependent on location – have different expectations concerning how to dress. Let us ease your stress by giving you an insider look at the current trends and expectations for rush week fashion across the board.

 

Below we’ve concocted 3 different looks for: northern schools, southern schools, and one more for good measure – so you can see the progression of formality when choosing your pieces!

PRO TIP: Always better to overdress than underdress!

 

Taking you through the week!!

The different days of rush week include Open House, Philanthropy, Sisterhood, and Preference Day in that order.

 

Open House – You visit all the houses/chapter rooms (will sometimes split into 2 days if a larger school). You will likely be provided a t-shirt from your school’s Panhellenic that you will wear along with any bottoms/shoes/accessories of your choice – this is your chance to use a good first impression to stand out! Consider finding a way to personalize your look by adding a scarf or a fun belt!

Philanthropy – Your first “call-back”, you will not revisit each sorority like Open House. The sororities will present their philanthropies and events. You will have more time to talk to the girls and ask questions. A good opportunity to discover what values resonate with you and what you may have in common with the girls.

Sisterhood – Your second “call-back”. You will have the opportunity to hear on a deeper level what sets each sorority apart. This is a good opportunity to ask questions to consider where a good fit for you would be!

Preference – You will visit two chapters in this final round. This day is meant to have greater depth and sentiment during one-on-ones with the girls. Everyone will be dressed in formal attire. This is another great opportunity to show off your style and how it sets you apart! After completing this day, the mutual selection process will be complete when you rank the two chapters. The next day is bid day!
