Accepted to Ole Miss? Congratulations and hotty toddy!

Ole Miss has one of the largest Greek systems in the country, and it’s notoriously competitive when it comes to rush. Each year over 2000 girls will sign up to participate in formal recruitment, which takes place in the fall after the school semester has begun. This year, for the first time in years, they’ve broken tradition; it’s been moved up to an earlier date.

Ole Miss’s formal recruitment involves the following rounds:

  1. Greek Day (aka open house) – visit all 11 houses
  2. Philanthropy Round – 2 days, visit up to 8 houses total
  3. Sisterhood Round – 2 days, visit up to 5 houses total
  4. Preference Round – 1 evening, visit up to 2 houses
  5. Bid Day – receive a bid and celebrate with your new sisters
