The weekend is here and before we know it, Rush Week will be too!
Events begin Monday, 10/8 and will proceed throughout the week until Interviews on Friday, 10/12. Can't make it to all of the events or will have to come late? Don't worry, you are welcome to come to as many or as little as you can, even if you are late! All events begin at 7pm and will end approximately at 9pm. There is no obligation to join and free snacks and refreshments will be provided (yum!). Have more questions? Refer to our previous post which included an FAQ.

Do you still have questions for us? Don't worry! Here are some frequently asked questions we receive:
✩ FAQ ✩
Q: What is Pre-Health? Do I have to be a certain major to join?
A: Pre-Health is a term used to describe the path to a future career in health. It covers a wide range of professions, whether it be that you are pre-medical, pre-dental, pre-veterinary, pre-nursing, pre-physician's assistant, pre-physical therapy, pre-optometry, pre-public health... the list goes on and on! You don't have to be any specific major to join, as we are open to any and all majors.
Q: What's Rush Week?
A: Rush Week is a week where we aim for you to find out more about us, what we do, and who we are! Information night is meant for you to get to know Kappa Gamma Delta as an organization and find out what it means to be a Sister! We will also go over the process of becoming a sister of Kappa Gamma Delta. Pizza and Games is an exciting night of games with our Sisters, all while enjoying pizza (on us!). Alumnae Night is where some of our Alumnae will speak to us about their lives after undergrad and how the organization has had an impact them. Mocktail is a night of interactive mingling that will allow you to get to know each sister on a more individual basis! Lastly, Interviews will be held on Friday by appointment, which you can set up with our Pledge Mothers throughout the week's events or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: Are all Rush Events mandatory? Can I come late?
A: Rush Events are *not* mandatory and you are *not* obligated to join if you do attend. However, they are recommended so that you are able to meet our Sisters and learn about KGD! All of our events start at 7pm and will run until about 9pm. We would still be glad to have you there even if you will be late!
Q: Are there any requirements?
A: We require that you have a 3.0 cumulative GPA before setting up an interview with us. If you are a first-year, this can be your High School GPA. If you're a transfer, this can be your previous school's GPA.
Q: How often do you have rush/recruitment?
A: We have Rush twice in a school year, once in Fall and the other in Spring. If now is not the right time for you for what ever reason, you are always still welcome to attend Rush in the meantime. We will never require you to join or sign up for an interview!
Q: I'm a transfer/second/fourth/fifth-year. Can I still join?
A: Of course! We are open to have you join us at ANY point of your Undergraduate Career!
Q: How much does Rush Week cost?
A: Nothing! Refreshments and snacks will be provided at no expense to you.
Q: How much does it cost once I join?
A: Our Financial Advisor would be happy to let you know more about this! You can contact her at email@example.com.
Q: I need a ride to the event! Can you help me?
A: Yes! You can email our Pledge Mothers at firstname.lastname@example.org and they will be happy to figure it out with you!
