Welcome to UC Davis and rush week for Sigma. The sisters of Sigma hope to get a good, solid group of pledges through rush week because 10 sisters are graduating. As the first evening begins, the sisters are immediately thrown off by the "type" of girls that appear to be interested in the sorority. Pauli is annoyed and believes that many of them have shown up for the wrong reasons.
After the meet 'n greet, the sisters gather to dissect the evening. The majority don't have a good feeling about the rushees, mainly because of how attractive many of them are. A discussion ensues about asking the rushees direct questions about their religious affiliation. Leslie feels this is highly inappropriate, and that it isn't right to "judge a book by its cover".
The next night's event is a sorority/fraternity luau. At this time, several of the sisters begin to ask the rushees whether or not they're Jewish. This makes several rushees uncomfortable, but relaxes most of the sisters about their intentions.
The last event is "Dressy Dessert" at the pledge house. Leslie has a conversation with two sisters about how when she joined, most sisters didn't like her and were unwilling to give her a chance. So, naturally, she is adamant about giving everyone a chance. Later it's time for final selection and vote. Finally, the sisters begin preparations to hand out bids.
After the bids have been handed out, it's time for induction night - all of the pledges are ecstatic. On Friday morning, the five girls that have been selected to live in the pledge house move in. Jordan and Amanda arrive early because they don't want to share a room with anybody. Candace and Mara arrive next and decide to share a room. Dede is last to arrive because of a class, and she takes one of the beds in the last room ... leaving one empty bed in the house.
Becca and Rachel hand out binders with the pledge house rules, and they meet with the pledges to go over them. None of the pledges particularly like the house rules, and they feel that they're being treated like babies. Jordan especially does not like the rule about no boys after 11:00. That night, the pledges go to Jordan's boyfriend's apartment to hang out, where Candace decides to climb on a pool table. Becca and some other sisters go by the pledge house to check on the pledges, and they're quite surprised to find nobody home.
