You're probably wondering ... what exactly is RUSH?
Rush is a brief period of time (usually one to two weeks) where ALL potentially interested ladies can personally get to know the active members of Lambda Delta Psi through the social and informational events provided. It is held every Fall and Spring semester. During this time period, girls are able to meet with the currently active sisters of Lambda Delta Psi and learn more about our sorority.
Why Rush Lambda Delta Psi?
Lambda Delta Psi is more than just a sorority. By choosing Lambda Delta Psi, you will find a sisterhood unparalleled by any other found at the UNIVERSITY of Houston; a family away from home.

Frequently Asked Questions
Who can join Lambda Delta Psi?
Any student who is in good academic standing and is actively pursuing a degree is eligible to become a candidate for initiation into the sorority. We accept transfers, full-time students, and past rushees.
I am not asian. Can I still rush and join?
Yes! We encourage ladies of all ethnic backgrounds with an interest in asian awareness to rush and join Lambda Delta Psi. Diversity is important and through our differences we gain new experiences.
What is expected of its members?
We look for students who will take pride in the sorority by working to grow the sorority and keeping the sorority prosperous.
Does it cost a lot of money?
It is manageable and nothing unreasonable! There are dues required to keep the organization functioning. We guarantee you that everything you put in will come back to you!
My parents are strict and they don't want me to join a sorority...
Most likely your parents might have a stereotypical view of a sorority. We have sisters with some of the most strict parents and they were able to make it through. We understand and we would like to help show you and your family that our sisterhood isn’t what it is like on television or what it’s made to seem to be.
Will joining affect my grades?
Lambda Delta Psi focuses on academic excellence and understands the importance of education. Before being a sister, we must remember that we are all here to get a degree. Lambda Delta Psi has been recognized as having one of the highest GPAs on the Multicultural Greek Council.
Does it take a lot of time?
The time you choose to put into the organization is what you get out of it. Most of our sisters are full-time students, commuters, and part-time employees. It is nothing that you can’t handle. Being part of an organization helps you practice time management and self control.
