What Is a Happy? And Where Can I Get One??

Recruitment week at Ole Miss is legendary. Sprawling sorority mansions decorated to the nines, cheers flooding out of open doors, and girls running in their best dresses and heels. While legendary, it is also one of the most stressful times for your student that is participating.

While some of you might be able to attend in person, many are back home awaiting phone calls and receiving pictures. But while you may be far in distance, you don’t have to be far in support. Rush Happies are the way to feel closer to your student while they go through recruitment.

Rush happies are gifts that your student receives throughout the week of formal recruitment. Depending on the store, gifts can range from candy and spa gifts to T-shirts and beauty items. Before ordering, check out all of the options!

Katherine Beck has many options for rush happies. You can select all week or just specific days! Each day has its own theme, allowing a different surprise for your student. While each day has an average price point, you can add your own range if you need. When ordering, you can explain your student's likes and dislikes as well!
