Rush questions & answers
aKDPhi was founded at University of California, Berkeley and has since become the largest and fastest-growing international Asian-interest sorority with 50 chapters! Among our many accomplishments, we are proud to be partnered up with Avon Breast Cancer Crusade and have an unparalleled dedication to service, raising almost $100,000 nationally last year for the cure to breast cancer.
What is rush?
Rush for aKDPhi takes place during the first couple weeks of the new school semester where the sisters organize various events for girls interested in joining a sorority. The period of rush is to see whether or not going greek with aKDPhi is something that interests you. It's a time to meet and have fun with the sisters and learn what our sisterhood is about. Our events are not mandatory and everything is free!
What can I expect at a rush event?
Rush Week activities are designed to offer a glimpse of aKDPhi to the community. By setting up opportunities for meeting the members of our active house, we hope that others will seize the chance to get to know what makes aKDPhi what it is - our sisters. Rush is also a great time to meet a diverse group of new faces. Any questions you have will be answered regarding sorority dues, philanthropies, academics, and personal reasons for joining aKDPhi. We only ask that you come with an open mind and be yourself.
What kind of girls join?
aKDPhi is known for the diversity of its sisters. Each girl contributes her own unique experience and spirit to our house, forming the foundation of sisterhood which we take pride in. We encourage all motivated women interested in enhancing their college experience at the University of Houston to come rush for aKDPhi.
When is the best time to join?
The best time depends on you and is a personal decision for you to make. Each class is comprised of girls of all ages; therefore, there is no definite answer. The best we can offer are our own experiences, so feel free to ask individual sisters about their choices. We hold Rush twice a year, during the first couple of weeks of Spring and Fall semester. Please check our website periodically for updates on upcoming events.
What happens after rush?
Following an informal interview, the bidding process begins. The purpose of the interviews is to get to know you on a more personal and professional level. There is no obligation in joining after signing up for an interview. Upon acceptance of a bid, a rushee becomes a New Member of the sorority.
What is the new member process?
During the New Member Process, New Members of aKDPhi will learn the traditions and history of our sorority as well as build the bonds of sisterhood within the New Member class and with Actives. The New Member Process is a time where the best memories and friendships of your college experience are made.
How much time must I commit and will it affect my academics?
Like any other extracurricular activity, it is up to you how much time you devote to joining aKDPhi – the more you put in, the more you get out of it. The process does take time, but it is definitely manageable, even with a busy schedule. We understand that we are all here at UH for an education and at no time will we ask you to compromise your academic goals.
