ONLINE EXCLUSIVE — Top 10 Ways the End of Rush Will Affect the the IndePENNdent

We respect the independence––so here’s what the end of this week means for you!

1. People will no longer talk about outfits, cuts and what everything means for their potential Greek future. Yay!

2. …But unfortunately that won’t stop them talking about pledging for the rest of the semester.

3. No more shivering lines of frosh girls waiting on the sidewalk or guys in button-downs and sneakers wandering from house to house in search of food and bro conversation.  But won’t you miss making fun of them?

4. You can be thankful that you will have less obnoxious neon tank tops/sweatshirts/hats in your future.

5. For some, the end of this week will mean saying bye to some of your first semester gone-Greek besties. Some disappear and never return…

6. The end of rush/start of pledging means you get to see and hear about all the antics others have to go through and be very happy you are not partaking.

7. You can now label yourself as a free spirit and revel in that.

8. See someone in class day after day free of Greek letters? You can totally initiate an independent bond.

9. The end of this week means fewer letter-wearing, rush-obsessed, sleepless sorority girls roaming campus with a vengeance. Probably. No promises.

10. Ultimately, the end of rush means there will be less of you. You should probably get used to it.

You are a bunch of silly self-absorbed kids. When you grow up to become real people, you will look back on these things not with embarrassment, but with shame about yourselves, and about the irresponsible university administrators who allow these things to go on. (But then again you can always sue them. You can sue them now if they do not let you do what you want. You can sue them later if they let you do it.)

Never mind the minor details about more of your fellow students being drug crazed and falling to their deaths right on Penn campus. After all, what academically demanding, liberal thinking, responsible college would not want these things to happen. You are clearly part of the elite, and will feel shame as a result.
