After coke parties, rush skits, Meet IT, getting signatures at the last minute, and the stress of pref day….
Nenamoosha, Swannanoa, Kissimee, and Laguna all gained wonderful new pledges!
Saturday was the day of truth. All the rushing girls were put into a tribe after a morning of scavenger-hunting to find where their new sisters were hiding. It’s a wonderful Mississippi College tradition. Once walking through the doors to nothing but hugs, smiles, and squeals, the day is filled with fun-filled games, cookouts, socializing, and sisterly love.
After welcoming their new sisters in the Jennings courtyard, Swannanoa took their girls to the Reservoir for a day of hanging in the sun, playing games, and cooking out. The pledges also made green bows to be worn throughout the rush process.
Nenamoosha welcomed their new sisters in Alumni Gym, where games were played and the tradition of the red bow was told, which they must also wear throughout the rush process. They then headed to the intramural fields for a day of slip n’ slides, messy games, and a cook out. The beaux also gave the new pledges their first rose of college.
New Laguna pledges were welcomed in the Presidential Board Room. Breakfast soon followed on the tables outside of the caf. Laguna then carpooled down to Hattiesburg and canoed on the Okatoma for the remainder of the day. They then concluded their Squeal Day with dinner at one of the active’s house in Hattiesburg.
Kissimee girls were welcomed at 4th Floor Alumni where breakfast was eaten and introductions were made. They then headed over to a local park where games such as tennis, four square, and much, much more were played. They also created a huge sidewalk chalk masterpiece with their beaux after eating hamburgers and hotdogs!
Obviously, all tribes had a ton of fun, and all girls were totally and completely welcomed into their new sisterhood! It is a such blessing to have all of these wonderful new rushees on campus, and each and every one of them are not only going to be invested in like crazy, but are going to become the presidents and officers of these tribes later down the road. We’re so excited to welcome them into each sisterhood!!
