While several sorority hopefuls had their rush plans disrupted by flight delays earlier this week, those looking to rush fraternities are just beginning their recruitment process on Jan. 12.
Fraternities affiliated with Penn have their first official recruitment events on Friday, Jan. 12 and Saturday, Jan. 13. On both nights, activities are divided between three blocks: the ‘Locust Block,’ which students can visit from 6-8 p.m. on Friday and 7-9 p.m. on Saturday, the ‘Spruce Block’ which is open from 7-9 p.m. on Friday and 8-10 p.m. on Saturday, and the ‘Walnut Block’ where recruitment is held from 8-10 p.m. on Friday and 6-8 p.m. on Saturday.
While close to 3,000 undergraduate students are involved in on-campus Greek life, not all students are eligible to rush. Penn students hoping to wear their Greek letters in time for Spring Fling must have at least four courses on their Penn transcript and a minimum 2.5 GPA.
Here are all the details about where to attend rush events, what times they will be, and, most importantly, what food you will find there:
The 54 events spread across two nights feature a variety of food offerings. Below is a breakdown of which food items you will come across most often.
