One of the most important and exciting ongoing events at the Zeta chapter is recruitment, or rush. Phi Gamma Delta has a rich history and tradition on campus and we are continuously building our future.
The future of our fraternity is determined by the quality of men we recruit each year. The success of our fraternity on campus is a by-product of the level of excellence we uphold in our chapter and brothers. We at Phi Gamma Delta take great pride and put forth a tireless effort to initiate the best brothers at Indiana University. Our recruitment process consists of four main steps rush, bidding, pledging, and initiation. Our rush is mostly for standout high school seniors who take a weekend to visit our house and the Bloomington campus. We take the rushees room to room in our house and around campus to show all aspects of college life that we are involved in. We explain what our chapter means to us and its importance.
If some of the high school seniors are unavailable to attend a rush weekend, or if they are currently IU students, we have other rush events available as well. At the end of the rush period, our brothers assemble to select potential brothers we believe would best represent the values and attitude of our fraternity. We will issue bids to these men. Once the potential members receive the bid and they accept, they will begin pledgeship. Our pledging process lasts a few months and after successfully completing this process, they will be initiated as brothers and welcomed into our fraternity.
Any high school seniors or current IU students who are interested or have questions about rushing the Zeta chapter of Phi Gamma Delta, please feel free to contact our Rush Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org . Our schedule for upcoming rush events is posted on our events calendar. We look forward to seeing you soon.
We require three items for all our potential brothers: the Rush Profile Form, a personal photo, and your high school transcript, all of which can be submitted by clicking here: Rush Form
