The women of Ko Jo Kai had their Disney-themed spring rush last night at Bennett Gymnasium and club members, as well as potential pledges, both came out in style.
Students who attended the rush were encouraged to dress up in their best Disney character costume and come out to spend time with the women of KJK and simply be themselves.
“Being a part of a club, you don’t want to put on a front and be someone you’re not and then enter the club and feel like nobody knows you because you didn’t act like who you are at first,” said Madison Hudson, senior psychology major from Abilene.
Ko Jo Kai has had the largest pledge class out of all of the social clubs on campus for the past two years, according to the Optimist, so a large crowd was expected for the event.
“IÂ [was] probably most excited about seeing everyone’s costume,” said Carli Cartwright, freshmen biochemistry major from Loop.
As with all of the social clubs on campus, students interested in rushing can sometimes experience nerves before rushes because they want to make a good impression with the members of whatever club they are most interested in.
“It’s fun getting to see everyone dressed up and you get to act silly,” Cartwright said. “But then there’s the pressure of coming up with a good costume, but overall I like the themed rushes.”
With spring rushes coming to an end, students interested in rushing a social club have hopefully had the opportunity to visit several rushes and meet lots of different people in each club.
The Devo rush, which is the last spring rush activity, will take place this Sunday at 8 p.m. at the Beauchamp Amphitheater. All students interested in rushing in the fall are invited to come out and join.
