Hey friends! Spring Quarter is right around the corner and you know what that means… it’s about time to announce our TENTH formal rush week. The ladies of the Empowered Arab Sisterhood (Epsilon Alpha Sigma Sorority, Inc.) are so excited for this new quarter because that means new sisters!

WHAT IS RUSH?

The Empowered Arab Sisterhood is the first and only Arab sorority in the nation. Each year we host a week long series of meetings and events known as rush week. These events will give you a chance to learn what the ΕΑΣ sisterhood is all about. At the same time, we'll have the pleasure of learning all about YOU. Come meet and get to know the girls during a week of fun as we look to expand our sisterhood.

Below you'll find a complete list of events. If you have trouble getting to event sites we will be providing rides!
