A traditionally Jewish fraternity will now be available for young men to pledge through formal rush.
Alpha Epsilon Pi is currently not a part of any Greek council and will become the eighteenth fraternity of the Interfraternity Council by the end of the semester. The international fraternity is based on Jewish platforms and participates in Jewish life on campus.
"We typically have a hard time finding Jewish students," said Isaac Freeman, chapter president. "Hopefully we will gain publicity by joining IFC so that Jewish students can find us."
Incoming freshmen and current OU students will be able to apply for Fall Rush 2009 beginning June 1. Those interested may sign up at ifc.ou.edu once enrollment opens up.
