Fraternity recruitment can be a daunting and rapid process; there's a reason they call it Rush. At Phi Delt we strive to simplify and help guide the individual and their family through the process.
Recruitment begins in September of every academic year. It involves perspective new members exploring all of the houses on campus with the goal of finding a fit and then hopefully receiving a "bid" or offer from that prospective house. The most important part of the process is finding the place that you feel is the best fit.
Every September the recruitment consists of three main events: first rush, second rush and formal rush. First and second rush are similar to an open house, as we open our doors to students interested in the recruitment process to meet the brothers of our chapter and enjoy some gourmet food prepared by our chef. Formal rush is a suit and tie event by invitation from the active chapter in which potential new members get the opportunity to not only meet a larger section of the active chapter but also our extensive alumni network.
As an interested party do not hesitate to contact us; the most important parts of the entire recruitment process is making a connection with the active members and finding a place that seems like home!
As a third year business student, I highly value my time. However, joining Phi Delta Theta in my first year was hands down the best decision I’ve made so far in my undergraduate experience. I have made more than enough memories to last me a lifetime alongside these amazing guys. They have been there to help and support me every step of the way. I highly encourage everyone to come and meet the men of Phi Delt and learn about the Greek at UBC! If you have any questions about recruitment or fraternity life please don’t hesitate to shoot me a message or call me! I look forward to hearing from you.
Everything is better with the right company. At a university as large as UBC, finding students with mutual interests can seem like a daunting task. Joining Phi Delta Theta in my first year was easily the best decision I've made throughout my university career, providing me with tools necessary to excel both socially and academically. Over the last 3 years, the fraternity has allowed me to work, travel, study and play with a diverse range of students and faculty, each having a positive influence on various aspects of my life. In my final year at UBC, I became a rush chairman with hopes of sharing these very same experiences with those who may follow after me. Enhance your university career today and join Phi Delt!
