I have written a similar post before but Ill do it again!
Rush or recruitment is when guys and girls go through the week-long process of joining a sorority or fraternity. As a international student all I knew about rush was from the movies or TV shows like Greek and such. In real life It was kinda similar, it was equally as scary and intimidating and despite promising myself to not get really involved I ended up crying when I got the house that I wanted Delta Gamma. The entire nerve wreaking process and getting my bid was one of the best memories from LA.
Paul Orfaelas class:
Paul Orfaela is a professor at USC, but also the multi billionaire creator of Kinkos (coopying store in US). I has a class at USC that is extremely difficult to get into, and you have to apply for it and write an essay. I got in as every thuresday for an entire semester we ate dinner at one of the nice restaurants on campus. A dinner he paid for while we discussed current events and news. At the end of the semester he invites his students to his country club in santa barbara.
It was a MESS. I had no tickets and snuck in two days for 80 dollars a day. Sketchy as f*** and I am for sure being tickets next year! But we had soo much fun!
The ultimate college destination! I have no words.. Ill give you pictures.
So here are some more updates on all the fun I had in Cabo! Ill try to explain specifics a little better.
The place to be during the day is Mango Deck. A huge day bar at the beach. It has about 4 different bar areas and the line is equally long everywhere.. (buy your drinks at the other bar two bars down.. Cheaper and sometimes they have 10 for 10$ shots.)
Other things to do than stand in line waiting to use either your bankcard or you JustColleges drink tickets, is to mingle with the same people you see at your college every Thuresday night, but this time you are in cabo AND thats TOTALLY different..
But seriously, this is so much fun actually! Have a few shots, build a sand castle, cover a innocent/passed out person with sand and take a picture, have a water fight in the ocean, buy a henna tatoo or try to get the cheapest headband from one of the sellers that constantly push their products in your face, and try to have as much fun the few days you are there!
