Rush Information

Students join Greek Life by engaging in the rush/new member process. Rush is the time period that students use to become better acquainted with fraternities or sororities in order to determine which one is the best fit for them.

For Sororities: Students interested in joining a sorority will participate in formal rush where they will be asked, over a course of three weeks, to meet with every sorority and then spend time getting to know members of those sororities they are most interested in.

After the rush process, students are formally invited to join the fraternity or sorority through receiving a bid.

Accepting a bid begins the new member education process, which typically lasts 5 to 6 weeks. During this period, new members become better acquainted with other new members, current members and alumni of the fraternity/sorority, learn the history and values of the fraternity/sorority, and become aware of the mutual expectations held between the individuals and the group.

Eligibility Requirements:

In order to accept a bid and begin the new member education process certain academic requirements must be met:

Students must be in good academic standing, i.e. not on academic warning or academic probation, with a minimum 2.0 cumulative and previous semester GPA.

Students must have completed a minimum of 12 college credit hours, post high school graduation.
