What is
Rush is a week long period in which students can learn more about Greek life. Activities and events are organized within each fraternity/sorority and open for all students to come relax, have some fun, and meet the memebers. It is during this time that students get a taste of Greek life and decide if it is something they would like to pursue.

Why should I rush for alpha Kappa Delta Phi?

Contrary to popular belief, there is much more to sorority life than its heavily publicized social side. Becoming a sister of aKDPhi brings many different advantages and experiences.

  • As the largest international Asian-interest sorority, aKDPhi connects you to an amazing group of women.
  • Develop leadership skills through active membership.
  • Participate in community service to enrich your college experience.
  • Become more culturally aware.
  • Foster personal growth among a supportive family of diverse women.
  • A nationwide network of alumni provides useful aid in various fields.
  • Create friendships through sisterhood that will last a lifetime.

What kind of girls join aKDF?

    We definitely do not uphold the "sorority girl" stereotype. aKDPhi is composed of the diverse backgrounds and lifestyles of each individual sister. Each girl adds her unique experience and spirit to our house, building the sisterhood that we are so proud of. We encourage ambitious and motivated women interested in enhancing their years at Cal Poly to come rush aKDPhi.

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 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. We simply ask you to come prepared with an open mind, an open heart, and be yourself.

Will rushing aKDPhi cost me anything?
Unlike most other Panhellenic sororities, rushing aKDPhi is absolutely free of charge! Everything from food to transportation is provided by the sorority.

What happens after Rush?

Following an informal interview, the bidding process begins. Upon acceptance of a bid, a rushee becomes a new member of the sorority.

What is "pledging"?

Commonly known as "pledging", new membership to aKDPhi opens up opportunities to experience new things. During the new membership process, new members of aKDPhi will learn the traditions and history of our sorority as well as build the bonds of sisterhood within their class and as well as the actives. This period is a time where the best memories and friendships of your college experience are made.

pledging affect academics? What is the time commitment?
Like any other extracurricular activity, it is up to you how much time you devote to pledging – the more you put in, the more you get out. The new membership process does take time, but it is definitely manageable, even with a busy schedule. We understand that we are all here in college for an education and at no time will we ask you to compromise your academic goals.
