With the start of a new semester, Ohio University students brave the chilling weather, shake off the winter break blues and get back into their routines. Spring semester classes begin, club meetings resume, and students begin to take advantage of the countless opportunities the university has to offer. Over 100 students, coming from colleges across campus such as the College of Business and the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism, took advantage of an incredible opportunity that has the chance to change their entire college career.
Home to three professional business fraternities, the College of Business hosted its semesterly Tri-Rush event to recruit young professionals to join these organizations. Recruitment lasts two weeks and includes information sessions hosted by all three fraternities as well as events hosted by each individual fraternity.
We as Phi Chi Theta did our very best to inform rushees what we are all about. Our theme of "Join the Big Leagues" perfectly describes the members of organization. Active members in our chapter have had internships at Cardinal Health, KPMG and Walt Disney World to name a few. Our alumni have given us a huge network to take advantage of. Our professional events, such as resume workshops and mock interviews, help members to grow professionally while fostering relationships with each other. In addition to being the largest business fraternity on campus, we pride ourselves on being a family and a home away from home for our members. It is an amazing thing to have not only an organization full of young professionals working towards the same goals of having a career after college, but to have over 100 of your friends pushing and supporting you to be the best version of yourself.
After two weeks of recruiting, we have found 25 individuals who we feel exemplify the ideals of Phi Chi Theta. We are so excited to see what they can accomplish throughout the rest of the semester and can't wait to help them along the way!
