Cougars will get the chance to explore ways to get more involved with UH at the Bauer Student Organization Rush Week from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday at Melcher Black Drum in the Bauer College of Business. Students are introduced to a plethora of different organizations seeking to recruit new members.

“There are nearly 25 different organizations within the college of business, and they range from general (Hispanic Business Student Association) to major specific (American Marketing Association),” said Bauer Activities Adviser Jonathan Shirley. “Bauer Rush Week can be the doorway to an amazing college experience that takes place outside of the classroom.”

Members of the organizations give a warm welcome to any student interested in seeking more information.

“I’ve been interested in joining an organization in college. Rush Week helps because they’re all here. They all want to talk to you. It’s easier to take it all in,” said finance junior Sarah Spencer.

Student leaders will set up tables along with poster boards and fliers that offer students more information on future events and requirements to join.

“(Rush Week) helps us promote our fraternity and helps us get out basic information and facts. A lot of people don’t know we accept all majors. We emphasize diversity in majors and individuals,” said pre-business junior Pria Glaspie, vice president of membership of Alpha Kappa Psi.

Some of the many organizations available to students include fraternities and sororities such as Delta Sigma Pi and Beta Alpha Psi. There are also student organizations that include the Finance Association, Enactus, Bauer Ambassadors.

“We’re a business-centered organization. We seek to promote business, and we are not major-specific. We are community service-centered as well. Our slogan is ‘Be the face of Bauer,’” said management and supply chain senior Travis Hookham, public relations officer for Bauer Ambassadors.  “(Rush Week) helps us find students who have the potential to be ambassadors.”

Students are encouraged by organizations to attend Rush Week and learn about existing organizations, meet existing members and step out of their comfort zones and try something new.
