Joining a Fraternity or Sorority

There are many ways to get involved with Fraternities and Sororities at Tufts. Students who are interested in joining a fraternity or sorority may participate in the rush, recruitment, or intake process.  Councils are responsible for setting their own rush, recruitment, and intake schedules. You may learn more about each Council on the Council page of the OFSL website.
