"Joyful screams and tears along with sighs of relief marked the annual "squeal day," which climaxed rush week as 205 freshmen coeds raced into the awaiting arms of their new sisters. With the feeling of having made the biggest decision in their lives, these girls pledged the sororities of their choice. The end of girls’ rush on September 17, 1962 marked the beginning of boys’ rush with its many luncheon and dinner dates. The 16 national fraternities ended rush with the pledging of 296 men."
