Rush FAQ's

 
 

What is rush?

Rush is our three week recruiting process to evaluate you and determine if Alpha Kappa Psi is the right fit for you. Our organization will be tabling around campus and offering a variety of rush events to help you get to know our brothers and get an idea what our fraternity really is. 

What kind of rushees is Alpha Kappa Psi looking for?

Our ideal rushees are highly motivated and passionate students who are looking to make a difference in the world. We are looking for student leaders who are successful both in the classroom and on campus. We hope to find students who seem passionate about the fraternity and eager to give back to the brotherhood.

Can only business majors pledge?

NO, Alpha Kappa Psi is open to all majors. We have members with all majors that range from finance to engineering to education and more!

Can I pledge a social fraternity/sorority during the same semester I pledge Alpha Kappa Psi?

Yes, you are welcome to pledge a social fraternity or sorority while pledging Alpha Kappa Psi. However, please keep in mind that pledging Alpha Kappa Psi is roughly equivalent to a three credit hour course, so plan accordingly.

Do I have to attend more than one rush event?

In order to be considered for admittance to our pledging process you must attend at least ONE professional event, but you are highly encouraged to also attend other events with hopes of meeting as many brothers as you can. The goal of rush is for you to get to know the brothers, and also for the brothers to get to know you and determine if you are a good fit for our chapter. 

What is the pledging process like?

The pledge process is designed to develop you both personally and professionally. You will be involved various social, professional and service events and given the opportunity to network with brothers and employers. You will also build life-long friendships and become a part of a family within the Gator family.

Do all rushees receive a bid?

No, not everyone receives a bid. It is important to attend as many rush events as possible to make a positive impact on brothers and show you can contribute to our fraternity.
