Rush AEPi

What is Rush?

   For the first two weeks of every semester Alpha Epsilon Pi holds a Rush in which we actively search for men who can add to the legacy that is AEPi. Rush is a time period in the beginning of each semester when everyone is welcome to come out to fun events to meet the brothers of our fraternity. It is an opportunity for you to get to know the brothers of us and for us to get to know you. Rushing a fraternity is not an obligation to join, but just an opportunity for you to come out and have a good time. Are you interested in becoming part of this legacy?

Many individuals come to campus with pre-conceived notions of what Greek life is like. Some people will say that they definitely want to join a fraternity, while others are sure that they are not going to join. Despite these notions, fraternities have a lot to offer that many don't even realize. Being a fraternity provides opportunities for social events, philanthropy opportunities, sports teams, and more.



  
Why Rush?

Being in a fraternity also provides you with a community within the larger community. You will have a connection with your brothers, and have opportunities to meet people from the other fraternities and sororities on campus. You have the potential to form lifelong friendships, and memories. You are also immediately put in contact with a network of alumni, giving you access to all sorts of opportunities in the business world.
Being in a fraternity may also give you a step up for the future. Whether it is the leadership experience they gain, or the connections made for the future, there are Greeks in prominent positions in politics, entertainment, business, sports, and more. Here are just a few facts about fraternity men:
       -      71% of those listed in "Who's Who in America " belong to a fraternity.                        
       -      85% of the Fortune 500 executives belong to a fraternity.
       -      40 of 47 U.S. Supreme Court Justices since 1910 were fraternity men.

  Why Rush Alpha Epsilon Pi?


      The Mission Statement of Alpha Epsilon Pi states - Alpha Epsilon Pi was founded to provide opportunities for the Jewish college man seeking the best possible college and fraternity experience. We have maintained the integrity of our purpose by strengthening our ties to the Jewish community and serving as a link between high school and career."      

      Alpha Epsilon Pi is NOT a religious organization, but rather a social organization that connects thousands of Jewish men across the country. AEPi is the only predominantly Jewish fraternity that has maintained its ties to the Jewish Community. AEPi runs trips to Israel, promotes Jewish charities, and holds ties with organizations ranging from Hillel to March of the Living. 

      Joining AEPi gives a connection with Jewish college students across America. We have over 130 chapters, totaling over 6,000 members. While each chapter is certainly different, there is a common purpose of building Jewish leaders.
