Recruitment Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to be in Smeal to become a member?
No, you do not. While being a part of the organization will help with business related subjects such as resume building and interview practice, there is no requirement that a member must be studying business at Penn State.
Can I be a member of Phi Beta Lambda as well as a social fraternity?
Yes! Professional fraternities are separate from social fraternities, so you are allowed to join both. Several members of Phi Beta Lambda are members of different social fraternities already.
If I don't receive a bid am I allowed to rush again?
Yes! We encourage those who do not initially receive a bid the next semester that they can. Sometimes mistakes are made, and we don't initially get all those who are a good fit for our organization on the first try.
When am I allowed to rush?
We hold rush events near the beginning of each semester, and we recommend to any freshman, sophomores, or juniors to join us at our rush events.
How difficult is the new member process?
The new member process is a hands-on learning experience designed for you to understand what it means to be a brother. Once you receive and accept a bid offer, expect that the workload would be equivalent to that of a 3-4 credit class during the semester. We want potential new members to be dedicated to the fraternity and active members that will grow the organization in the future.
What should I do during rush week?
Do your best to meet as many brothers as you can, make meaningful connections, and make sure to be yourself! It's important that it's truly you who shows up to these events, because if you are only acting to impress the brothers it doesn't anybody any favors in the long run.
