Joining a Greek Organization
Rush, Recruitment and Membership Intake
Rush or Recruitment is a mutual selection process for joining a fraternity or sorority. It is a time for parents and aspiring students to ask questions define financial obligations, time commitments and membership requirements.
Membership intake is the name of the process that organizations in the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) use to bring in new prospective members. NPHC organizations conduct membership intake at various times throughout the year. Each chapter has a process specific to their organization and will host an informational program for potential members to better understand the membership expectations and application process. Marketing is generally conducted through flyers and campus advertising at least two weeks prior to any informational session.
Requirements to Join
In order to join any student organization, you must be a currently enrolled Lawrence Tech student. Each Greek-letter organization has grade point average and credit hour requirements specific to their chapter.
