Personalized Rush Week must-haves for your sorority

After more than a year of missed in-person college memories, I’m so excited to go back to live events, classes, and — of course — a return to Greek Life. The start of the semester means Rush Week for sororities and fraternities. What better way to celebrate than showing off your Greek Life spirit with your letters?
Staying stylish with your Rush Week tote bag
As fun of a week sorority rush can be, we all know how much there is to do. Be resourceful and stylish with personalized tote bags to store all of your day’s needs. Canvas totes like this one can be customized in endless ways with Cricut EasyPress. They can carry several items, but remain easy to carry so you don’t have to worry about losing anything. The best part is they are reusable, so you can represent your sorority wherever you go, even after Rush Week.
Hydrate with your Greek Life water bottle
I used my water bottle more than any other item during Rush Week. Especially during Fall Sorority Recruitment, hours of talking would have been unbearable without a bottle of water next to me. A customized reusable bottle easily solves this problem. These bottles keep your water cold and show your support for your chapter. They really are the whole package!
Cute, custom tees made just for Rush Week
During recruitment, people looking for a new sorority or fraternity can get lost in a sea of Greek-spirited students. Customized t-shirts are sure to help you stand out. Sure, you could buy a shirt with your letters on it from your school bookstore or somewhere online. But why do that when you can make it yourself? Even better, you can change it up to however you’re feeling that day. You can make it completely unique and just for you. My favorite thing about shirts like these is they really are one of a kind, and so much more special.
Sticking out with stickers
Stickers are ideal for bigger groups — especially when you want something fun and easy to make. Popular as mementos to remember events by, stickers are an easy decoration for water bottles, laptop cases, and notebooks.
I’m not usually one to overwear my letters, but this year Rush Week hits differently than most. These projects are fun, easy, and best of all, cute — and I can make them for my whole active house. Use your own sorority name, letters, colors, and more for a unique touch to your rush week gifts. Make sure to tag us and share with #cricutmade so we can see how you celebrate Rush Week!
