If you’re entrenched in the Greek system you already know that there are several off limits topics for Sororities to talk about during rush. Dudettes are always told to stay away from the 4 B’s: boys, booze, bank accounts, and Bibles. Sorority dudettes must avoid those topics at all costs when rushing new pledges! Fraternities though are whole different ballgame. In our last blog post we explored the PC ways of Sorority rush. Listed below are the differences in these 4 conversation topics when rushing a Fraternity.
In a sorority it’s definitely a faux pas to talk about boys, but if you’re a dude then it’s absolutely encouraged to talk about your bros! Duds by Dudes recommends bragging about your boys to these new Fraternity dudes. Here’s the thing, we already know you’re a cool dude, and you probably did some really weird and awesome stuff with your boys back home before coming to college. Chances are you’re going to be making a whole slew new memories with these dudes, but that’s no reason to neglect all those Tucker Max inspired tales of shenanigans you’ve already experienced. Let the storytelling begin!
If you’re rushing a sorority this is definitely a 100% off limits topic to talk about… Good thing you’re not a little sissy girl! Now get in there and take a shot of JD to the dome! Shotgun a beer if you’re not a hard liquor fan. You’re rushing a fraternity! If you aren’t standing within at least 20 feet of a beer bong at all times then evacuate that building immediately! Now we feel that it needs to be mentioned that Duds by Dudes does NOT condone drinking to the point where you’re likely to hurt yourself or others. Seriously. Don’t do that. Another thing you should never do is text your ex-girlfriend. In that psych 101 class you’re going to be taking you’ll learn that alcohol cuts off the part of your brain that makes rational decisions. That’s going to be showing up on the midterm so you better remember it. If you’re really itching to call someone after knocking a few back be sure to have the phone number for a late night delivery joint on speed dial. That’s just a win-win for everyone involved.
No one wants to hang out with that guy who goes around bragging about how fat his bank account is. However; you may increase the size of your own bank account by placing side-bets with your fellow pledge class bros. This is a stealth maneuver that if done correctly can bump up those bank account bucks by a bundle! Side-bets can be placed on anything, really. Need some side-bet inspiration? It’s football season, Bet on the color of the Gatorade dumped on the winning Superbowl coach. Or maybe an over/under on how many times Brett Favre, Tim Tebow, or Peyton Manning are mentioned in a Sunday.
If by Bible this topic is referring to The BRO CODE then we’re on the right track. The BRO CODE should be upheld by all Fraternity members at all times. No exceptions. The BRO CODE is a living document, much like the Constitution. Except instead of outlining a government, or the Bill of Rights, or anything even resembling laws, the BRO CODE provides men with all the rules they need to know in order to become a bro and behave properly among other bros. Dating back to the American Revolution and containing approximately 150 unspoken rules, this code of conduct for bros can range from the simple (bros before hos) to the complex (the hot-to-crazy ratio, complete with bar graphs and charts). With helpful sidebros the BRO CODE will help any new fraternity guy become the best bro he can be. Let us impart these last words of wisdom upon you, you will be meeting a whole lot of new bros when rushing a fraternity. Shown below are the proper and improper greeting techniques for maximum impact.
