Steps For a Successful Rush Week

  1. Spring 2017 Men's Rush Week is Tuesday, January 22nd through Friday, January 26th.
  2. Rush events will be held at individual fraternity houses from Tuesday, January 23rd through Thursday, January 26th. These events follow an open door format.
  3. Try to map out 3-5 fraternities per day that you can check out. Keep all your options open.
  4. DO NOT RUSH ONLY ONE HOUSE!
  5. Check out houses of all membership sizes! You may find that your original opinions on fraternities could change.
  6. Dress business casual - nothing too fancy.
  7. Be yourself! Do not try to fit the mold of what you think a stereotypical ‘fraternity’ guy is.
  8. At each fraternity house, make sure you give all your information to the individuals at the registration table. This ensures that you can be contacted by members of the organization(s) about your future membership.
  9. While you are at a fraternity house, try to talk to as many people as you can. This will help you know if that fraternity is the right place for you.
  10. Under No Circumstances are you allowed to drink alcohol or do drugs during recruitment. Do not show up to recruitment events under the influence of alcohol or drugs. This will result in your removal from recruitment events. If you are offered any alcohol or drugs, or hear about these substances being present at a fraternity house, please contact the Interfraternity Council Vice President for Recruitment, Drew Koets, at ifcvprecruitment@greeklife.msu.edu.

If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contacnt Drew Koets, V.P. of Recruitment for Interfraternity Council.
