ENCOURAGE ALL WOMEN TO SIGN UP FOR ALL SORORITY RUSH IN THE FALL
What is It?
Rush is simply a process of making friends. A decision to go through rush
is a decision to become acquainted with the Greek community and established
Bryant College students. By going through rush, you are not committing yourself
to join a sorority (or fraternity). You are simply meeting people, making new
friends, and becoming familiar with Greek Life.
How Do I Register For Rush?
All women must sign up in advance to go through first semester All Sorority
Rush. When you arrive on campus, look for information about
registration. All Sorority Rush allows women to meet all of the chapters
through a series of rush events organized by Panhellenic.
Men do not have to sign up to rush. IFC will have some all Fraternity Rush
events, but for the most part chapters develop their own rush schedule.
What Are Interfraternity and Panhellenic Councils?
Interfraternity Council (IFC) is the governing body of all fraternities. It
is a organization made up of the President and Junior Delegate from every
fraternity working together to keep the Greek system strong and growing. IFC is
responsible for maintaining good relationships between fraternities, the campus,
and the Smithfield community.
Panhellenic Council (Panhell) is the governing body of all sororities. It
is very similar to IFC in its goals for the Greek Community. Panhell is
responsible for All Sorority Rush in the fall.
How do i go through rush?

should understand all aspects of membership that are required for initiation
into the organization. If you are unsure about anything, just ask.
How Do I Join?

ceremony planned by Panhellenic. Once a women accepts a bid, she becomes a new
member of that chapter. if you are not interested in joining a chapter that
extends you a bid, you may simple decline.
What Is Membership Education?
If a women accepts a bid to a chapter, she becomes a new member of the
chapter. Activities in the membership education process are geared
toward bring the new members closer together and getting to know the current
members are well as educating new members on important issues such as alcohol,
HIV/AIDS, hazing, study skills and diversity. New Member Education helps
new members learn about life, the chapter, and self and helps develop
leadership and responsibility. It last four weeks.
Will My Grades Suffer?

Greek community realizes this and takes pride in promoting academic excellence.
