What is Recruitment or "Rush"?

Recruitment, or “rush,” is the term used for the period of recruitment of new members for fraternities.  Formal Fall recruitment consists of three structured days that include an orientation meeting and mandatory visitation of each chapter house to meet members and learn more about fraternity life. After visiting each chapter, potential new members are free to visit any of the chapters for the next two days.  For information about fraternity life and how to join a fraternity, check out the Fraternity Way, IFC’s annual recruitment publication. You also will be able to join us during orientation to learn more about IFC fraternities and how to join.
