frequently asked questions
WHAT IS RUSH?
Rush is a time period filled with events that allow you to get to know the sisters of Kappa Phi Lambda as well as other girls who are interested to join our sorority too!
WHAT IS A BID?
A bid is an invitation to an individual from a chapter or colony to begin the process to join Kappa Phi Lambda and be a part of our new member process. After recruitment ends, bids are given to individuals deemed to be a good fit for our organization. In order to be eligible for a bid, the interested individual must go through an interview process and attend a set number of recruitment events (which may vary depending on individual schools).
DO I HAVE TO PAY?
We all know the college student struggle. ALL rush events are free and non-obligatory! Feel free to come out, meet our wonderful sisters, and make awesome new friends!
DO I HAVE TO BE ASIAN?
No! Although we are an Asian Interest sorority, we are by no means Asian-exclusive. We strongly encourage women of all backgrounds to consider joining. In fact, our current membership boasts of women from a diverse array of cultures. As one of our three pillars, cultural diversity is an essential part of the organization’s identity. We celebrate this diversity by holding cultural events on campuses and within our communities. Chapters and colonies also host joint events with other clubs and Greek-lettered organizations to further promote a spirit of cultural awareness. We believe recognizing individual members for the unique value they add makes us greater as a whole.
HOW DO I GET AN INTERVIEW?
In order to be eligible for an interview, you must attend at least two rush events and one General Information Meeting (GIM)!
