SPRING 2020 RUSH
Phi Chi Theta is a premier business fraternity that aims to do more than just expand our actives' college opportunities and enhance their overall career trajectory. In my experience, PCT believes in finding and nurturing our members' individual strengths.
On a suggestion, I remember attending Info Night in the spring of 2018. Sitting and listening to the various speakers’ experiences was my first exposure to PCT’s culture, which is built upon encouraging not only professional, but personal, growth. It is difficult to describe the immense impact that PCT has had on my life— the organization has given me the knowledge to effectively pursue my ambitions, no matter where they lie, and has introduced me to some of the most incredible people I’ve ever met.
Our organization prides itself on our actives' diverse interests; we believe that fostering these interests is the reason why after graduation, our members go on to become industry leaders in careers ranging from consulting and investment banking to professional athletic management.
However, no two actives have the same story to tell— I encourage you to attend our Info Night, held on Wednesday, January 22nd from 5-7 p.m. in Wohlers 141, to hear what each member of our family has to say about their personal passions and share how PCT has uniquely impacted their lives.
Best, Harrison Oliff
Vice President of Membership | 2019-2020
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What does Phi Chi Theta look for in an applicant?
We seek out potential new members that are passionate, innovative, and ambitious. We evaluate applicants equally on their potential for development as well as their qualities and experiences.

Phi Chi Theta invites all students with an interest in business and a desire to pursue a career in business to rush.

Absolutely, we have many members who did not receive a bid until their 2nd, 3rd, and even 4th time rushing.
I don’t own a full suit, what should I do?
For our Info Night and 1st Round Interview, dress is Business Casual. This is combination of dress slacks or a skirt, a nice blouse, dress shirt or sweater, and closed toe shoes. For our 2nd Round, Social Stage, dress is Smart Casual, meaning jeans and a conservative blouse, shirt or sweater. For our 3rd Round Interview, dress is Business Professional; this means a full business suit or a blazer paired with dress slacks.
