Sorority and fraternity spring rush begins Sunday

UF sororities are expecting about 300 students to sign up for spring recruitment, up from about 200 last year.

Recruitment, also known as rush, starts Sunday for Interfraternity Council fraternities and Panhellenic Council sororities, said Carey Mays, program coordinator for the Office of Sorority and Fraternity Affairs.

Mays said although fraternities see an average of 250 students rush each spring, the number has been steadily rising for sororities.

He said about 80 students went through sorority rush in 2009 and about 120 did so in 2010.

Both sororities and fraternities see higher numbers in the fall, Mays said.

UF Panhellenic Council President Cari Swertfager said about 1,100 students went through sorority rush in the fall.

She attributed the jump in spring numbers to an increase in marketing with fliers and informational sessions.

She said about 11 of the 16 Panhellenic sororities are participating in spring rush.

All of the fraternities are participating, Mays said.

National Pan-Hellenic Council and Multicultural Greek Council sororities and fraternities usually conduct rush independently, he said.

A sorority rush informational meeting will be held at 6 p.m. Sunday in the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom.
