This list is a life saver whether you are a PNM or on the chapter side of recruitment. Speaking as someone who has gone through rush as a PNM and almost three times as a member of the Greek community, I can say that these will be the longest days of your college career. I think you’ll find these snacks as helpful as I do during the grueling hours.

The nuts will keep you full and you can also add some chocolate chips for a little sweet treat.

A meal replacement bar

Sometime there are rounds right through meal times with no breaks. A bar will keep you fed and you can eat it on the way to your next house.

The fiber will fill you up quickly. Just be careful to buy a brand that is low in sodium. Or just make it yourself.

This fresh fruit will hold up in your bag/backpack. Also, a boost of vitamin C is always helpful when you are shaking so many hands!

Water bottle

Stay hydrated or you will regret it. Good luck with recruitment!
