Rushing at UNT

im so glad i found this message board! Ive been reading allot of threads and all your info has been extremely helpful!!!

Anyway im currently at a community college right now and and am transferring to University of North Texas next semester. Ive actually been perusing one particular fraternity, ive actually visited the house and met some of the brothers already. I have just a few questions for anyone who would like to answer them.

1. Really what im wondering is what the rush process is like there. I know theres like a week of events but i wasn't sure if there were like mandatory rounds where you have to visit each house, or if there were just like come and go events.

2. Im also curious about how you even get a bid. Do you fill out a forum for each house you want to rush? Or do you just show up and make a good impression?

3. also what are some good questions to ask to the different chapters while rushing.

thanks very much everyone!!!

I go to Texas, most of the systems are pretty similar.

1. You are probably going to make you go to each house, at least for a little while. Makes it fair....each house gets to see ALL of the rushees, etc. Usually it's a week long or so. Houses will have stuff going on for your entertainment, food, etc.

2. Make a good impression. Usually if a house likes you you will get invited back for more private events later on in rush. They'll get in contact with you. I've never heard of having to fill out a form for each house. If they like you, you'll sign a bid card to whichever house you choose.

3. Anything really. Just be talkative, act like a gentleman, dress appropriately......have fun. Ask about philanthropy, big party events......just normal conversation. Don't be shy.
