No, you can go through rush after your first year. At some campuses though it's easiest to get a bid if you rush during your first year.

AI is alumna initiation for women who the sorority wants to let in after college. Usually these are people who do a lot of work and service for the group. Some times it's moms of women in the sorority, etc. It's invitation only, I think, for all the groups, so even if you got info. it wouldn't do you much good unless you were asked to join.

oh ok. my friend was part of my schools 'extensions program'. so he took classes at the extension center/on campus. he started rushing this frat.... then the guys found out he didnt go to that school (but he was part of our schools extension and was a full time student). How come he was unable to rush when he was a full time student for our school (well kinda our school)?

I really don't know; maybe it wasn't considered the same campus. Are you sure he officially wasn't allowed or did the guys just not want him?

That's a question you'd ask the fraternity he was rushing, not us.

Each organization has their own requirements regarding enrollment and matriculation.

I read in a thread that you can only rush panhellenic during your first undergrad year. Is this true? if so, how come?
Some schools that have a history of a more competitive sorority recruitment (namely in the South) place greater preference on recruiting freshmen than uppeclassmen. At other schools, the distinction is not so great and sophomores, juniors and seniors have just as much of a shot as the freshmen, particularly in the northeastern schools and some on the west coast or midwest. However, to be in an NPC sorority, you must not already have a bachelor's degree-- if you have graduated and are working on your second bachelor's or a master's you are not eligible to join most sororities, as their purpose is to guide undergraduate members.

Some NPC groups do accept grad students as members, or women working on their 2nd bachelor's.

However, just because they CAN does not mean they WILL.

You can find out which NPC groups allow graduate students as collegiate members by contacting the appropriate HQ. There are 26 NPC HQs.

As far as which chapters do and don't, I'm thinking that that kind of information falls under membership selection, which is kept private for members only.

And some schools have different rules/regulations regarding Greek life and recruitment. IE, on my campus, Freshman can't rush until Spring Semester. [I think that's a common idea among a lot of other schools.] A friend of mine who goes to a different school is in a sorority and they do formal recruitment the first week of school.
