Rush Fall 2019
Whether you want to build connections, develop professional skills, or just come for the free pizza, there are plenty of reasons to rush Theta Tau. For many engineering students here at ASU, Theta Tau is the defining part of their college experience. As the oldest and largest coed engineering fraternity in the nation, joining Theta Tau can open up a whole world of possibilities to the aspiring engineer. We hope to see you at our next rush event!
What is Rush?
Rush is a two-week period full of fun events to help you get to know Theta Tau. We host info sessions, game nights, and much more! Attending rush events is the first step in becoming a member of Theta Tau. All events are FREE, and often have free food. So stop by and have some fun!
What is Pledging?
Pledging is your chance to determine if Theta Tau is the right fit for you, and prepares you for becoming a member. Pledging is the next step after rush, and is a semester long process. You will get to meet all its members, learn about the history of the chapter and the fraternity, participate in professional and service events, and form bonds which will last the rest of your life. You will help pick your ‘big brother’ who is an active member that will guide you through the pledging process, and for many years to come.
Q: What is Theta Tau?
Theta Tau is a Coed Professional Engineering Fraternity. This makes us a “Professional” fraternity which means we value things like professional development and community service more than a “Social” fraternity might. We are also composed of members that have an interest in Engineering, which unites us as another common focus.
Q: How is Theta Tau different than an honors society?
Honor societies are great for being around people that share an academic interest with you. These are excellent groups for furthering your interests in a topic, but the benefits often stop there. Because Theta Tau is a brotherhood, you will join a group of people that take friendships beyond the classroom and even the campus, and treat you like part of a family. When you join Theta Tau you will make friendships that will last the rest of your life, anywhere you go.
Q: Am I eligible to join?
You must meet the following requirements at the time of initiation
In an engineering major at Arizona State University
Have at least 6 months before graduation
Have a minimum (passing GPA) of 2.0
Not be a member of a competing Fraternity or Sorority
At least 18 years old
Q: What if I change my major from engineering?
As long as you are enrolled in engineering at the time of initiation, you will be a member of Theta Tau for life. While we focus on engineering, and most of our members complete degrees in engineering, we do have members change majors.
Q: How do you pronounce “Theta Tau”?
THAY-Ta TAH. Notice the pronunciation of "Tau" differs from the typical pronunciation you might hear in a Math class. This is not by mistake, but rather a Greek Grammatical rule.
