The beginning of a new school year is a very exciting time on Ohio University’s campus. Freshman students are learning their way around the bricks, while seniors are taking in everything about their last fall semester in Athens. It is an especially exciting time for the College of Busiess, as with the beginning of the fall semester comes Business Fraternity Tri-Rush. With the loss of a huge senior class, Phi Chi Theta was excited and ready to take on the newest batch of young professionals to help further their skill set and add them to our family.

The first two nights of Tri-Rush is combined with the other two business fraternities, Alpha Kappa Psi and Delta Sigma Pi. We come together, along with speakers from the College of Business, to explain the importance of business fraternities to potential pledges. It is a great opportunity for all three business fraternity members to represent the College of Business and show that there is a sense of unity between all three organizations.

After the first two nights of Tri-Rush, each business fraternity hosts their own rush events. Phi Chi Theta’s theme this semester was, “Masters of Professionalism.” This theme represents all of the opportunities that are available to you once you are an active member.

The first PCT rush event was many active members’ favorite: speed dating. This is a chance for both actives and rushees alike to get to know each other on a more personal level. The next night was our first ever grill out, which turned out to be a huge success! Actives and rushees got the opportunity to enjoy some fresh grilled hot dogs and network at the same time. Our last event was the professional interviews.

After a week and a half of rush events, we are excited about our Fall 2016 pledge class and we are excited to see what they can accomplish!
