What is Rush?
Ask any average Joe about Yale a cappella rush, and he'd tell you it's a month of performances, meals and auditions, beginning with a Sunday night concert in Woolsey Hall and culminating in the campus-wide insanity that is Tap Night. Joe was never very good with descriptions; we'll take it from here.
More than anything, rush is a fantastic way to get to know some awesome Yalies right from the outset of your college experience. How, you ask? You'll wade through seas of aggressively colorful a cappella shirts every day of your first month of college. You'll sing 'Aura Lee' more times in one weekend than you ever sang 'Bye Bye Bye' in all of 3rd grade. You'll attend Singing Desserts until you get early-onset diabetes. You'll eat Rush Meals in every conceivable dining location on campus. At the end of it all, you'll not only have a slew of new Yale 2016 facebook friends, you'll have had the chance to really get to know the members of each a cappella group at Yale and to decide which one fits you best.
Free food. Free music. New friends. What's not to love?
