What is RUSH?
Rush is the official process to join a fraternity or sorority affiliated with the Panhellenic Council (PHC) or the Interfraternity Council (IFC). It is a time for students to ask questions including what are the financial obligations, time commitments and membership requirements. Rush is a slang term for recruitment.
Rush is a two-way process when fraternities and sororities are getting to know you and you are getting to know the fraternities and sororities. You are deciding which organization most interests you, which has the members you relate to the best, and which one you feel the most comfortable with. At the same time, members of the chapter are meeting you and others going through recruitment. Chapters are looking at individuals who can contribute to their membership in terms of grades, activities, talents and interests.
Recruitment is year-round, but the IFC has two formalized processes one in the fall and the other in the spring. Again you must register for this process. If you are a student athlete or you are involved in other activities that may overlap with recruitment, inform the chapter or council that you will be participating in both. We will work with you during the week to ensure that you may attend as many recruitment events as possible.
If you participate in recruitment, there is no commitment to join. Recruitment is a time to see what Greek life can offer you.
