The term rush is slang for formal recruitment to every Greek society looking for new members to join their elite group.

Greek life holds rush week the first two weeks every semester.

“Rush week is a week-long process in which students interested in Greek life can attend Greek recruitment events,” said Erick Calderon, recruitment chair for Lambda Chi Alpha.

Fraternities participating:

  • Pi Kappa Alpha
  • Kappa Sigma
  • Alpha Gamma Rho
  • Lambda Chi Alpha
  • Sigma Pi
  • Sigma Nu
  • Phi Kappa Tau
  • Alpha Sigma Phi
  • Phi Delta Theta

Sororities participating:

  • Gamma Phi Beta
  • Alpha Delta Pi
  • Alpha Phi
  • Alpha Gamma Delta
  • Alpha Omicron Pi
  • Sigma Kappa

This is a method to recruit new members and show what organizations are available for students to enroll in.

Once a student is interested and becomes a member of a Greek group then the chapter of that society contributes to good causes around the community.

“We raised an enormous amount of money, canned food and also donated blood for BloodSource,” said Jessica Smilovitz, chapter president of Gamma Phi Beta sorority.

Sororities and fraternities participate in community service and other events in the community throughout the year.
