Becoming a Brother

How Does Rush Work?
“Rush” is the name given to the recruitment process that anyone interested in joining the Greek system goes through in order to find the right affiliation for them.

Shortly after the school year begins, the fraternities and sororities invite those interested in joining to come to their house and learn more.
Think of it as sort of an open-house tour where you go from sorority to sorority or fraternity to fraternity meeting and interacting with the members.
Through this series of events, you’ll meet current members and learn about each chapter’s history, values, interests, priorities, and activities.
This is your chance to get to know them while they get to know you and find out which group, if any, you want to affiliate with for the rest of your time on campus.
