Do rushes start the beginning of your freshman year in college or your senior year in highschool when you apply for colleges.
At many colleges, formal rush is held the week before school starts in the “fall” which is usually August. Or, rush may be held during the first few weeks of the fall semester. Information and registration happens before that, sometimes in the spring before classes let out for the summer. You should also check on updates during the summer.
Once you confirm your college acceptance, you can start looking for recruitment information. PNMs will register for rush in the spring and prepare for the events at the start of fall semester. Some universities have spring formal rush, which would delay this process. With that system, you would start school and then register for rush months later (like November) and attend recruitment after Winter break in January or February. Have fun at either fall or spring recruitment! xoxo ;)
