What to expect
All current Northern Arizona University students are welcome to participate in fraternity rush. Each organization has their own GPA requirement for membership, which they will share with you at the beginning of Rush Week.
Rush takes place in both the fall and spring semesters. During rush you will have the chance to spend time with as many fraternities as you like throughout the week to get a sense of their values, philanthropic endeavors, and social activities.
There is no formalized sign up process, but if you are interested in adding your contact information to the Fraternity Rush interest list, please email FSLife@nau.edu. Your contact information will be shared with each fraternity so they can let you know about their rush events.
