UCF’s Spring 2012 Rush Week kicks off Monday, January 23, where men thinking of joining a UCF IFC fraternity get a chance to find out which one is for them.

Monday, January 23: Student Union
A kickoff event, where a small group from each fraternity will be present, is set for Monday from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. in the UCF Student Union.


Tuesday, January 24: Individual Fraternity Rush Events
Each IFC fraternity is hosting its own rush event on Tuesday, ahead of the Memory Mall rush tent activities which happen Wednesday and Thursday (more details on this below). KnightNews.com found out each event being hosted Tuesday, and we published it below, along with a list of each fraternities size and GPA, as of the last UCF fraternity size and grade report. We also provided links to the fraternity websites, after finding them listed by IFC.

The Memory Mall area, the open area in between the UCF Student Union and the UCF Arena, will be filled with tents of members form each IFC fraternity. Unlike the Monday Student Union event where only a small table of members from each fraternity are present, the tent event allows fraternities to bring out their entire brotherhood to meet potential pledges. It runs from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Friday
Each fraternity will have its own wrap up event. By this point, if you haven’t picked a fraternity to join, you should have it narrowed down. Contact each fraternity you’re still considering and find out where and when they’re meeting up Friday night for the last night of rush.
