Rush is a week long series of events at the beginning of each academic semester. These fun events allow prospective members to meet the siblings and discover what Sigma Epsilon Omega can offer you. Bids, or offers to join the fraternity, are announced to those selected at the end of rush week.

Pledge is an eight-week process that begins after accepting the offered to you bid by Sigma Epsilon Omega. Our pledge process builds strong bonds between prospective members and with the siblinghood while exploring our core principles and values. We actively strive for a haze-free pledge process that encourages personal growth and traditions while expanding ones knowledge of and engagement in both the Greek and the Queer community.

Sigma Epsilon Omega follows all recruitment guidelines and regulations established by the Intra-Fraternity Council (IFC) at the University of California, Berkeley in conjunction with the All-Greek Social Code.
