Greek Life at Ole Miss


Hi All ! I am an OOS student from the midwest and will most likely be attending ole miss this coming fall (2011). I have alot of questions about the greek life and the rush process there. I know the rush process is much more intense and i was wondering if anyone can walk me through the process so that there is nothing i miss. I know some chapters want letters of recommendation and have questions about that.

Also, a big thing im slightly concerned with. As an OOS student from the midwest im worried about people taking where im from the wrong way (ex: not giving me a chance during rush due to me being from OOS). I am a really easy going person and from what i hear about the school it sounds like i would fit in well with all the stereotypes that ole miss has (very social, party, preppy kids). But i have also heard that some frats only take kids from MS or memphis.

I am looking for feedback from current students or recent alum. I know what frat your in has a huge effect on how much fun you have hear (ecspecially your first two years). So anything that would help me better my chances for getting a bid with the "better' frats on campus would be great !

and please no bashing of the greek life thing, i know it's not for everyone but its somthing i want to be a part of. By bashing it your being just as "judgemental" and stuck up as you perceive them to be so please try and keep it helpful !

Thank you in advance for you feedback !
