Business Fraternity Rush Begins Friday

Rush week for business fraternities kicks off on Friday. The Business Fraternity Council (BFC) Mixer will occur in the Business Building Atrium tonight from 5:45 to 8:00 p.m, and gives rushees the opportunity to become acquainted with all of the business frats on campus. Penn State has five business fraternities, all of which are members of the BFC. Because all will be present, a prospective member can decide which fraternity they want to rush, and fraternities will hold their private rush events the following week, the dates and times of which are announced after the BFC mixer.

Make sure to put on your best business professional and come out to impress. Here’s some information on Penn State’s business fraternities:
