Anyone and everyone may come out for the first week of Rush, but you must attend a certain number of events to successful complete Rush Week.

What Does Pledging Entail?
Rushees who accept their bids become Pledges of the fraternity. The pledging period to become a Brother (the title given to both male and female members) of Tau Chapter lasts approximately 9-10 weeks of the semester, during which time pledges are asked to complete certain requirements. Although specifics of the requirements may change from semester to semester, they usually include passing quizzes on chapter history, accumulating service hours and meeting weekly with fellow pledges. Pledges also have the opportunity to attend our semesterly camping trip known as “Weekend,” hold officer positions within their pledge class and assist with the planning of their own pledge service project and fundraiser.
THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO HAZING INVOLVED IN PLEDGING.
More information about pledging is available on the national website.
