Rush Week is a fast and furious experience for most pledges — you don’t have time to rest or think as you get caught up in all the activities. That said, there are certain things that most frats are looking for in a pledge, and you have to make sure you give the right impression. Here are 5 do’s and don’ts to help you get the bid you want.

1. DON’T get drunk. A lot of Rush Week is about going to parties and socializing, which you should definitely do, but don’t be that guy who drinks too much. You’ll be much more likely to say or do something foolish in front of your future brothers.

2. DO get around. A bad habit of freshmen is to stick to one or two friend like glue. The point of Rush Week is to circulate and get to know different people, especially in the frat you want a bid from.

3. DON’T discuss controversial topics. There’s a time and a place to talk to your friends about politics and religion, but not during Rush Week. Stick to non-polarizing topics so you don’t run the risk of alienating someone.

4. DO show confidence. Rush Week is never the time to be timid. Show confidence in the way you speak and act — try a pair of LiftKits to give you a boost in confidence as well as height. Shoe Lifts

5. DO be yourself. Guys can tell pretty quickly if you’re being fake. It’s best just to act like the person you are — it will help your potential brothers really decide if you’re a good fit for the frat.
