Are you Ready to become the best version of yourself?
Joining Zeta Psi was the best decision I could have made in my undergraduate studies. I've gained so many valuable friendships and learned so many important lessons in my four years here.

HOW TO RUSH
Step 1: Rush Week
First week of September
Rushing is when undergraduate students become acquainted with the fraternities on campus. This process lasts for about two weeks, and during this period, fraternities host events at the Chapter house (or more recently, virtually due to COVID-19). This is where the current brothers of the fraternity meet the 'rush', also known as prospective fraternity members.
During this time, prospective members of the Zeta Psi fraternity must get in contact with the Zeta Psi Rush Chairs so that they can remind you of rush events so you don't miss out!
When the rush process is over, the members of the different fraternity and sorority chapters will meet and decide whether not they want to extend a 'bid', or invitation, to students whom they think will pledge their organization.
Step 2: The Pledge Process
Pledging is an intensive orientation and probationary period for students pursuing fraternity membership. Over the course of six weeks or more, pledges study all facets of fraternity life and the Greek system. You’ll also spend time bonding with your new brothers.
Fraternity brothers often involve pledges in exercises of loyalty and trust. Pledges and brothers may also have a pledge project they work on together (building something for the house, for example) and be in charge of tasks like cleaning up after house parties.
Finally, if the brothers feel a pledge has completed his pledge education to their satisfaction, he can be initiated into the brotherhood.
Step 3: Initiation into Brotherhood
The actual initiation ceremony is shrouded in mystery. The pledge will be initiated into the secrets of the fraternity, from secret mottoes and grips (handshakes) to passwords and the meanings behind rituals. He will be sworn to secrecy.
