Rush Psi Sigma Psi

We are Psi Sigma Psi Sorority, and we are a close-knit group. We don't pick out members by their choice of clothing, what they do on their free time, or their background. We are a diverse group of people and we do not discriminate against any type. We very much pride ourselves on our strong ability to promote inclusivity. We are all close with our alumni and our brother house, Mu Theta. Please take the time to get to know us! You will realize that a sorority can be both laid back and fun!


You are welcome to contact us if you are interested in rushing, learning about Greek Life, or are interested in pledging a fun laid back house that loves to go on adventures, hang out, go outdoors, be supportive and so much more!


President: Breanna D’Hondt

Campus Connect (Students Helping Students)

The Office of Student Conduct & Community Standards is excited to introduce Campus Connect, an initiative of the Best Foot Forward program. The goal of Campus Connect is to provide a quick and easy referral system for students to obtain assistance for fellow Pioneers who may be struggling for any reason.

In short, if you have a concern for another student (or yourself!), please accept the challenge and make a referral using the following web form: The information you share will be kept as private as possible and used to connect students to the appropriate campus personnel and resources. That’s it!

There are no restrictions to the type of concerns you can share. However, any information relating to an emergency, crime, or imminent threat should first be reported to University Police. Please contact the Office of Student Conduct & Community Standards with any questions you may have.

Be empowered. Be a Pioneer. Help each other!
