Rush Theta Tau

Rushing is an open invitation for all eligible students to start the process of becoming members of Theta Tau. Rush is usually held during the first few weeks of the Fall and Spring semesters. During this time, you will see signs posted saying "Rush Theta Tau." Theta Tau holds Rush events where we give out pizza, go to the Swamp, play pool, BBQ, and do other assorted activities.

You first meet the members of Theta Tau, and they get to meet you. The purpose is to let the brothers of Theta Tau know you are interested in joining. You also learn about the fraternity and the upcoming pledge cycle, so you can make an informed decision about joining. During the two rush weeks, students are encouraged come to as many rush events as possible but only required to go to a minimum of two rush events, in addition to one info session. Also during rush, students should introduce themselves to the members and ask any questions they may have about Theta Tau. At the end of the rush period, the members of Theta Tau discuss and decide who should receive a bid and continue on to the pledge process.

Rush & Pledge Eligibility Requirements

Any student of the UF College of Engineering is eligible to be a member of Theta Tau. Mostly, the prime qualification is possessing good character. We do have a few particular qualifications that must be met at the time of initiation (after pledging, at the end of the semester). A member must meet the following qualifications:

  • Be at least 18 years of age.
  • Must be enrolled in a program leading to an Engineering degree.
  • Attend at least one info session and two other events during Rush.
  • Not be a member of a competing engineering fraternity.
  • Must not be within 6 months of graduation.
  • Have a UF GPA of at least 2.0 or be a transfer student (sorry, first-semester freshmen).
