Sorority recruitment, nicknamed “Rush,” can sometimes be confusing and overwhelming, but knowing what to wear during each of the rounds can take a load off your shoulders so that you can focus on being your fabulous self and on making the right decisions about what sorority to join. Here’s how!
Round 3: Skit Night
The Set-Up: During Skit Night, you will visit a maximum of five houses (but it is totally fine if you attend less houses!). You will have 40 minutes at each house to talk to sisters and to view an original skit (complete with songs, dances, and crazy costumes!) that the sisters have put together to show off their personalities.
What to Wear: The dress code for this round is dressy casual. It will be a bit of a long night, so make sure you wear something comfortable so that you can sit on the floor to watch all the skits and be comfortable sitting in the Court during the flex round(s). I suggest wearing something a little nicer than what you wore during Philanthropy Round because the round is an evening event. Also, most sisters (and you!) make big decisions about who they would like to invite to Pref Night right after Skit Night, so wear something that you feel fabulous in that looks polished and appropriate. I suggest nice shorts with a delicate blouse, a skirt and blouse, or a cute sundress, all with nice sandals or espadrilles. While you watch the skit and while talking with sisters, you will probably be sitting on the floor so, again, make sure everything is covered. Sisters will be wearing themed outfits that go with their dances or skit theme, so if you are debating between outfits, go for solids and avoid neons (lots of dancers wear neon!).
Tip for this round: Pay attention during the skit! Is it based off of your favorite movie? Did they do a song based off one of your fave tunes? Sisters love to know what specific parts you liked, because it lets us get to know your personality a little better. Another reason? You might be talking to the girl who wrote the lyrics or came up with the script or painted the backdrop. Let us know if you loved it! Also, try to ask questions about that chapter, like who they are going to homecoming with, if they have IM sport teams, and what sort of sisterhood events do they do. Sisters are really trying to let you know how awesome their sorority is and they know that this is a difficult decision for PNMs, so help us out!
