Special Edition: Fraternity and Sorority Life

 
Fraternity and Sorority Life
Special Recruitment Edition

Fraternities and sororities have been an integral part of the Drexel community since 1900. Our organizations pride themselves on excellence and dedication to leadership, service, scholarship, lifelong friendships and connections to Drexel. Being involved in a fraternity or sorority enables students to become good leaders, network for the future, be part of a close-knit community and grow as individuals. They find friends they can't live without, make memories they'll never lose and make a mark on Drexel University that will last a lifetime.

Below is information on upcoming recruitment events for our fraternity and sorority community.

Interfraternity Council (IFC) Recruitment
IFC Recruitment, or "Rush," is a series of events during which undergraduate male students are able to meet fraternity members, learn about the chapters and decide whether fraternity membership aligns with their interests. Interested men are encouraged to visit as many chapters as possible during the recruitment period so they can find the chapter that fits them best. Email greeklife@drexel.edu for more information.
