Message From VP of Recruitment :

Hello, my name is Lance Moore . Rushing a fraternity my first semester of college was the best decision I could have made. Being a freshman can be overwhelming, adapting to a new environment, being surrounded by strangers, and acclimating to a new academic course load. These were some of the obstacles I was able to overcome with the support of a fraternity. Getting involved in a Greek organization, you are given the opportunity to join a brotherhood for life, acquire leadership skills, and provide a positive impact on the community. In fact, last semester our fraternities cumulatively raised over $100,000 for charity. The opportunities, experiences, and relationships acquired through Greek life, not only enhance and support your time here at FAU, but provide a foundation for your future.

Do you feel lost or confused when hearing unfamiliar terms or phrases?

We have all been there!


The act of Rushing a fraternity can consist of attending a series of social events and gatherings that allow a current fraternal organization to get to know you. Each institution has its own particular style for conducting rush.

Rush week

At FAU, Rush week is from September  9th - 13th 2024

Potential New Member 

A student who is not yet affiliated with a chapter and is interested in joining a fraternity.


When a group decides which new members they would like to join their organization, they give them a “Bid”, which is an offer to join. When a student receives this Bid, they are able to accept, deny or defer the bid to join that fraternity.


  • Pledging is typically around 6 weeks soon after one is given a formal bid. Pledging can very between each organization.

  • Feel free to ask any organization their pledging process and what they do during that time.
