Insight from the Newly-Initiated Omicron Class
"I really enjoyed the whole rush and pledge process. Working together with my pledge class to finish our project was both fun and rewarding. We spent a lot of time together between working on pledge projects and study hours. During pledging, my favorite part was getting to talk to all of the brothers. I'm so happy to continue on with Theta Tau as a brother!"
Kristin DiMichele - Cybersecurity Engineering
"I wasn't sure if Theta Tau would be the best for me. When I went to rush, I quickly found out that it was perfect. I had a great time at all of the events, and I had lots of fun meeting both brothers and fellow rushees. My only regret is that I didn't rush sooner."
Systems Engineering - Evan Anderson
"Going into rush, I had no idea what to expect. I was told there were no strings attached, but I still wasn't sure abut joining a fraternity, even a professional one. The first night really opened my eyes though. By the end of the week, I knew I wanted to get to know these people and this fraternity!"
Andrew Warrener - Information Technology
"The whole process was aimed at making sure you not only know what the fraternity is about, but also to get to know other brothers on a personal level -- beyond just name, major and year."
Biomedical Engineering - David Garcia
