About Us

What does Rush mean?
Rush is a fraternity's process of selecting new members for its organization. Rush benefits both the individual as well as the fraternity, offering the rushee a chance to get to know the fraternity, its brothers, and potentially giving the rushee a chance to become a pledge. Rush also offers the fraternity a chance to get to know potential members and to decide which rushees will be invited to pledge.

What are the social events like?
Phi Sigma Kappa – Sigma Epsilon is a Social Fraternity. We have regular sorority socials, themed parties, weekend BBQ’s, brotherhood events, and larger annual events such as Parents Day, Founders Day Formal, Homecoming Formal, and River Rampage.

My Parents are concerned about Fraternity life. What Can I tell them?
Have your parents read our welcoming letter from our president. If they have any further questions, or concerns please contact our Rush Chair, President, or Advisor.

What about Hazing?
Phi Sigma Kappa does NOT haze!

Phi Sigma Kappa has taken a very strong stand on the issue of hazing, as well as other risk management issues. Our national policies state that any chapter caught hazing will be closed. Hazing practices and activities are a thing of the past, and have no relevance or purpose in today's fraternity environment, let alone in Phi Sigma Kappa itself.

Hazing is taken seriously at Ferris State University and the practice is prohibited by the University. If a student organization is found to haze its members, the organization faces penalties including removal from campus. Individual students may also face University judicial charges and sometimes criminal charges. To assist Ferris State University a Hazing hotline has been implimented for new member safety.
