Kappa Theta Pi Alpha Chapter

Main Rush


Q: Who can rush KTP?

Anyone is allowed to rush — we gladly accept (and encourage) rushees from all disciplines! The only requirement is that you must have at least 3 semesters left in school after your pledging semester.

Q: What is KTP looking for?

There’s no cookie cutter “ideal” rushee — if there were, Kappa Theta Pi wouldn’t be the multi-talented, interdisciplinary organization that it is! In our experience, the qualities you’re looking for are often what we’d love to have in new members. In the end, we are an org united by our love for technology, and people who are truly passionate about tech are the ones who usually fit in the best.

Q: How would I be able to benefit from KTP?

KTP offers a supportive community of undergraduates who are all passionate about technology! Among other things, we offer mentoring in areas such as career advising, interview prep, resumes and coursework. Additionally, we have current members and alumni working everywhere from the brightest startups to all of the major tech giants of the corporate world. We believe that networking is far more than just professionalism — it's a process built on friendship, trust, and brotherhood.

Q: What majors are in KTP?

KTP is made up of a diverse group of people from schools all across campus. Generally, the majority of our members tend to be Computer Science majors or in the School of Information, but have also had actives with backgrounds in Creative Writing, Philosophy, Business, Women’s Studies, and Entrepreneurship! We love (and encourage) rushees from all disciplines.

Q: What type of social events does KTP have?

KTP aims to have at minimum one sober and one non-sober event per month. In the past, we have had barn dances, bowling nights, formals, Smash tournaments, and many more local events.

Q: What kind of time commitment is pledging?

As with all campus organizations, what you get out of the organization depends on what you put into it. We believe that our pledging process isn’t strenuous and could be accommodated into most schedules.
