For many people who are no longer undergrads, the viral storm that was Alabama Rush TikTok was a welcome distraction from end of not-so-hot girl summer. The impending arrival of fall was cushioned with #OOTDs, enthusiasm for sisterhood, and a lot of suggestions for where to buy thin gold jewelry (hint: Kendra Scott). While rush week at the University of Alabama might be over, videos tagged RushTok have over 130 million views and counting. With the school year officially starting, you can expect to see much more sorority row content coming in hot from colleges across the country — especially across the 14 Southeastern Conference (SEC) schools where Greek life is, well, life.
If you couldn’t get enough of the drama over who would get a bid from one of the top houses — and who would get dropped — you can find sorority-centric videos like #BamaRush all across TikTok. Come for tea-spilling retrospectives and stay for the alumni-curated #tbts. You’ll find videos that zoom in on sisterhood before the age of TikTok, and comedic takes on some the whole circus.
