Sorority rush pulls

the highest in recent years, which
leaves the UNL campus with more
than 3,000 students in its fraternities
and sororities, said Linda
Schwartzkopf, director of Greek
“We’ve had really quite a dramat
ic increase in the number of women
choosing to join a sorority,”
Schwartzkopf said.
More than 99 percent of rushees
were awarded invitations.
The number of rushees has
steadily increased over the past four
years, Schwartzkopf said.
“I think students are attracted to
the very positive values of the sorori
ty system,” she said, naming leader
ship, scholarship, service and friend
ship as just a few of those.
The high applicant turnout was
strong proof of the positive image
UNL sororities uphold,
Schwartzkopf said.
At UNL, 85 percent of rushees
get their first choice of houses after
filling out a preference card of the
sorority they most want to be a mem
ber of, said Mary Ann Holland,
Greek Affairs staff assistant.
“We have a lot of pride here
because we make every attempt to
place every young woman who wants
to be a part of the greek system in
their desired sorority,” Schwartzkopf
Sorority rush began Wednesday
with an orientation inside the
Nebraska Union and finished in the
same fashion Monday, with members
opening invitations inside the union.
Each woman had the opportunity
to visit all 14 sorority houses
throughout the week. Each sorority
then chose prospective members
based on academic performance and
student involvement.
Each of the sororities located
around the UNL campus placed high
emphasis on students’ SAT and ACT
scores, high school grade point aver
age and extracurricular activities,
Holland said.
“When a student is involved in
several things, it would indicate that
they may have good time-manage
ment skills. That’s an indicator of suc
cess in college,” Holland said.
Angela Nichols, a junior sec
ondary education major and pledge
educator, said she was more than
ready to make her new sorority sisters
feel right at home.
Nichols, who represents Pi Beta
PJii Sorority, will be challenged with
the task of presenting her chapter’s
history to the incoming freshman
She also has to match new mem
bers with other sisters who have sim
ilar interests and classes, which can
ease some of the pressure of being a
first-time college student and can
help create connections on campus,
she said.
“Olir hmicp ic a Kirr nptu/nrV
where everybody knows someone
else,” Nichols said. “It really makes
you feel comfortable when you’re on
a large campus.”
Initially, 657 students signed up
for rush. More than 175 either
dropped out along the way or were
listed as no-shows, Schwartzkopf
Lacey Sukstorf, a junior advertis
ing major and rush chairwoman, said
she was eager to greet the more than
30 new sisters entering Kappa Kappa
Gamma Sorority.
“It’ll be a really neat experience.
They’ll have a lot of fun and interest
ing experiences ahead of them,”
Sukstorf said. “I’m excited for them.”
