What is Rush?

Rush encompasses events held for prospective members to learn about the fraternity and for the chapter to learn about future members. Events include meet the brothers, professional speakers, workshops, interviews, and other individual evaluations.  

Do you have to attend all events in order to qualify for membership?

You must attend at least one round of recruitment prior to the Professional Interviews, as this final round is invite-only. We highly recommended prospective members to attend as many as possible. It is difficult to thoroughly know each prospective member given the large number of applicants, so every minute in which we interact with a particular person helps make for a much more accurate decision process. Quality time leads to quality decisions that result in quality members. 

What is pledging like?

The weekly pledge class meetings are held every Tuesday and Thursday night at 7:00pm unless there is a conflict with NC State's calendar. Meetings are mandatory and professional dress is required on all Thursdays. The length of these meetings is determined by the efficiency of your pledge class, but active chapter meetings generally last 60-90 minutes. As a pledge, you will be required to wear your pledge pin, complete interviews with active brothers during the course of the semester, and other pledge class projects. There will be tests given each week on the history of the fraternity as preparation for the final exam at the end of the semester. 

 

AKPsi's pledge process is intense, challenging and entirely worth the effort. During the semester you will learn an exceptional amount about the fraternity, its members, and most of all, yourself, as you are immersed in brotherhood, professionalism, and hard work.

How will I know I got accepted to pledge?

After submitting your application and attending required events, you will be contacted for a formal bid night with active AKPsi brothers. During this night you will be notified of your invitation to induction, the official ceremony that begins each semester-long pledge process. Here, you will meet the rest of your pledge class and be officially welcomed by the Lambda Omicron Chapter.

What if I have more questions?

If you have further questions about membership, please contact the Vice President of Marketing, Anusha Tummallapalli at lambdao.vpm@gmail.com
