What do you mean by "non-trads" ?

Non traditional students.

Not an 18 year old coming straight out of high school into college.

Even community college students who transfer can fall into the "traditional" category depending on the school. Non-trads can be 25 year old who served in the military first or 30 year olds who started a family or a trade and then went back to school...

I would still consider you traditional, a 22-24 year old transfer student.

Cool. I think I might stay at SDSU for more than 2 years even though i'll be junior at the time of transfer because I'll take extra classes and maybe have a minor or something.

That would probably be a good thing to mention while rushing, it may help.

You should start a thread in recruitment stories, it's the craze these days, all the kids are doing it.

That is a long time to wait for transferring. It seems a bit odd that you are so worried about rushing a fraternity and it is over a year away.

This thread is slowly becoming a FAQ thread about fraternities. I think that's cool because when we have many many sorority threads we should have one main fraternity thread.
