Fraternity rush is in full swing as men interested in joining various organizations make their way to peruse the social scene.

To date, there are 900 potential members already signed up as interested participants for the Interfraternity Council rush, a big increase compared to last year's numbers.

"Last fall, this same list had 525 names and I've been told by my adviser that the highest it has been in the past 15 to 20 years is around 800," said IFC vice president of recruitment Jimmy Briggs, in an email.

During rush events, men can visit the various fraternities to learn about their various philanthropies, social activities and brotherhoods.
