What is Recruitment or "Rush"?
Recruitment, or "rush," is the term used for the period of requirment of new members for fraternities.

What is "Greek"?
Since the late 1700's, college fraternities have been identified by two or three letters from the Greek alphabet, which starts with Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, etc. The largest fraternity, with over 280 college chapters, is Tau Kappa Epsilon. usually known as TKE or Teke.

Why Join a Fraternity?
By joining the Greek community, a wealth of opportunities will be awaiting you. You will have the chance to develop new friendships, take part in meaningful campus activities, intramurals, and community service events, and develop your leadership skills. Fraternities were founded on the principles of scholarship, leadership, community service, and development of lifelong friendships. All fraternities have something unique to offer, and membership in a fraternity will add a new dimension of leadership, academic involvement, friendship, and fun to your college career.

What's the Interfraternitiy Council, the IFC?
The fraternities on campus are self-governing, through the Interfraternitiy Council. The Interfraternitiy Advisor or Greek Advisor in the Student Services or Dean's Office advises the IFC. Proceedures for Recruitment or "Rush" are set by the IFC.

For more information, visit the "Interfraternitiy Council" or "Fraternity"

All the hazing, boozing, drugs, homoerotic and misogynistic attitudes that you'll also be exposed to, in your fraternity. All that also adds to the total college experience.

Are you kidding me? I have nothing against fraternities, but I have steered my kids away from those schools that are so Greek that you have to be in a fraternity or sorority to have even a semblance of a social life.

I doubt this is the case anywhere these days.

People are always saying that greeks buy their friends. Seems that is true for only the first year. After that people are paying to be your friend.

GREG: I'm not going to say Omega's the best house on campus, but a lot of outstanding guys figure
they'll pledge Omega or won't pledge at all.

We do have more than our share of campus leaders...
something that never looks bad on your permanent record.

Sure. Everybody says Omega's the best, but...I hate to seem...you know, pushy.

Let the unacceptable candidates worry, because after tonight, they're.......
you are...Kent!

I'm Greg Marmalard, president of Omega House. Meet my friends, Mandy Pepperidge...

We already met.

GREG: ...and Chip Diller.
CHIP: How are you?

How are you?

Over there is Terry Auerback, captain of the swim team.

That's Carl Phillips, editor of the Daily Faberian.

And...

Clayton.

Sidney.

Jugdish, Mohammet, Lonny--

-We already met.
-Super! Then you'll have lots to talk about.

Tim Matheson and the Vonn Liebowitz charade is one of the all time classics. Millions of young men saying to themselves, "DAMN, I wish I had thought of that".
