Thinking about rushing and wondering what we are looking for? Rush can be intimidating, but some of the most important advice can be to just relax and be confident in yourself. Below are some quotes from brothers about what stands out to them in a rushee!
“The rushees who stand out the most to me are those who express a willingness to become comfortable with the uncomfortable. We grow the most as individuals when we push ourselves to achieve more than we think we are capable of, and as leaders, the best thing we can do is empower others to embrace that mindset.” – Elisabeth Beall, initiated Fall ‘14
“As a non-business major myself, I always look for rushees who will bring a diverse perspective or skill set from their field of study or personal interests. AKPsi can offer a lot of exciting opportunities and knowledge to new members, and we want that relationship to be mutual. I like to hear how someone has already utilized their unique talents for something they’re passionate about, and how those abilities can be translated into contributing to the fraternity.” – McKenna Porter, initiated Spring ‘15
“I want to talk to someone who strives to leave their mark on the world in some way; someone who, whether they’ve done it yet or not, wants to impact not only Alpha Kappa Psi, but all of society. These are the people who will provide legacies for the brotherhood and the University at large, and these are the people with whom I want to become brothers.” – Thomas Nesbitt, initiated Fall ‘17
“In many ways, actions speak louder than words so tell us about times you have seen a problem and then sought to initiate change. We want to seek leaders that are confident in themselves and their own individual passions. I want to walk away from each conversation remembering how that rushee was unique.” – Taylor Morrow, initiated Fall ‘15
“When rushees are able to articulate their ideas and interests in a clear way under a tense situation it demonstrates, in a snapshot, their ability to conduct themselves in a professional manner not only in business but in every day life, which is something we value in our prestigious organization." – Justin Beldyk, initiated Spring ‘16
