Spring Greek rush sucessful

Missouri Western’s Spring rush took place last week. Assistant Dean of Student Development Isaiah said that the process in the spring is less formal than that in the fall. He also said that there are advantages to rushing in the fall, rather than the spring.

Unlike fraternities, sororities have a cap for recruitment for an entire year. If the sorority meets that cap, then they can’t recruit in the spring. Clare Hendren, the vice president of recruitment for Alpha Gamma Delta, said thatt he reason she joined a year ago was to meet new people. “My favorite thing about greek life is having a big group of friends that I'm comfortable with that I can go to in any situation,” Hendren said. Alpha Gamma Delta had three recruiting events last week. On monday they had afternoon tea, on Wednesday they had a game night and on Friday a craft night. Hendren said the events were successful and that she was hoping for ten new recruits. “Somebody should join AGD because we are the most eclectic and we have the highest GPA,” Hendren said. “And we have a really strong sisterhood.” Alpha Gamma Delta’s average GPA among it’s active members is 3.23. Phi Delta Theta has a 2.72 average GPA among it’s members. Phi Delta Theta President Ethan Kelley said that it’s the highest among the fraternities. Kelley said there are many reasons why someone should join Phi Delta Theta. “We’re the largest on campus,” Kelley said. “We have the highest fraternity GPA on campus, we haven’t lost any intramural sports in 10 years.” Kelley said that roughly four students were given bids last week. Phi Delta Theta had three events last week. Last Monday they had an informational night, then on Wednesday they attended the basketball game and on Friday they had a video game tournament. “We had a large amount that went out to the basketball game to cheer for the Griffons,” Kelley said. Kelley, who rushed in the fall of 2009, said there are benefits and downsides to rushing in either the fall or spring. “The fall is a lot busier a schedule,” Kelley said. “There’s a lot more going on. It’s harder on your schedule in the fall.”
