It's impossible to advise Akkus on how to go through rush. It's different at every single school. While NPC groups have essentially standardized things from school to school, NIC groups through their local IFCs (Interfraternity Councils) legislate rules for each campus. You'll find that rush varies greatly from one campus to the next.

Akkus, the best I can tell you at this late hour is to contact your campus' greek life office -- sometimes, that's a subdepartment of campus life, and get whatever information they offer. If you know some upper classmen, get their input on reputations for different houses because telling lies to sign pledges up is something often done -- even on large campuses and by larger houses.

All I can say is that you should educate yourself, then figure out where you'll best fit in. As far as any further info goes, you're going to have to give up a little more than you have.

Oh. In that case, please enjoy high school, get into a decent college, and come back in 1 year.

Once again, I have to say that is great advice except the fact he's already in college.

I need to start reading more than the first and last pages of threads.

Thanks for that.

I get what you're saying. You really CAN'T have a thread about "General Advice for Fraternity Rush". There aren't many (if any) universal rules for IFC rush like there are for NPC rush. I noticed even on my own campus that there isn't even universal rules between groups (besides the few that IFC establishes....after that it's kind of anything goes).

Also, guys tend to be less likely to reach out for help on something like rush then girls are.

The only thing I can think of to tell any guy who's rushing is just to be yourself and find a group that fits who you are, instead of what you think you want to be.

I'm sorry you missed the comment and I was updating you on what he previously said. And clearly I was correct.

I would disagree with that -- if you want to join a house because you think it'll make you a better person than you are, do that.

Go to a place where you feel comfortable, or else, go to a place where you can get the type of fraternal experience you're looking for. You're right about IFC rules though -- in most cases, even if they exist, they're completely ignored by almost everyone.

This is an interesting post.

NIC does it a little different maybe not so such in "The Ole South", but I do not know for sure.

But according to a source I trust, the rules of enagagment of Sororitys may be changing also becuse of the structure as such. A lot is depending on the schools them selves and the structure.


Young people today do not need to be run like cattle or sheep, they feel that they want to think on their own or so then seem to think.
They have to be sold on the idea of becoming a Greek and what it may do for them in today's economy and The future.

So, what benefits do they get out of being a Greek. Much more than they can realize.

I was thinking maybe I can rush at SFSU the next semester, not to join a fraternity, but to see how rushing works, so i will have more experience next year.
