Rush is one of the most important parts of the Greek System. It is a time for Clemson Students to explore the world of fraternity life and find a group of men who they cannot only spend their college years with but also create a bond that will last a lifetime. For chapters of the Interfraternity Council, this is one of the most important weeks of the year. At Clemson, we are very fortunate to have a large and diverse group of fraternities that represents about 20% of the male undergraduate population. The Interfraternity Council (IFC) is made up of 21 individual chapters who all participate in the formal recruitment process. Participating in the rush process allows students the opportunity to meet each unique chapter.
Fraternities can also be stepping-stones towards other goals during both college years, as well as post-collegiate careers. Joining a fraternity can also be a gateway to other organizations on campus. Many fraternity men become active members of student organizations and clubs outside of their chapters. Greek Life is a great opportunity to network and makes connections with other students with similar interests. For students that aren’t familiar with the recruitment process, it is important to know that there is a chapter suited for everyone regardless of your interests or lifestyle.
I know that being in a fraternity has shaped my college experience. It has taught me responsibility and leadership while having fun at the same time. I wholeheartedly think that every Clemson student should have the chance to experience rush and I encourage you to join us this Fall. Come out to rush and see what opportunities await you.
Go Greek. Go Tigers.
Vice President of Recruitment
