Rush

Letter from the Rush Chair

My fam this semester: my cobig Hanna, me, my little Madisan, and my other cobig Sam


Hey there!

My name is Julia and I’m the Rush Chair for APO this semester. I’m a third year Civil and Environmental Engineering major, and I pledged APO in the Spring of 2017 with the Ph17oSOfAs (affectionately known as the “sofas”). I’m so glad you’re interested in APO!

Our Spring 2018 Rush will last from Monday, March 19th to Monday, April 2nd. Within that time span, you’ll get a chance to serve Charlottesville and meet our brothers and pledges. Rush will be a good snapshot of what APO at UVA is like on a weekly basis. So as much as this is an opportunity for us to get to know you, we also want to make sure you experience being a member of APO and can decide for yourself if this organization is right for you.

As a rushee, you will be required to attend five events: two Saturday service projects (three hours each), one midweek service project (1-2 hours each), one theta date (2 brothers/pledges and 2 rushees hang out), and one fellowship (themed events where ~15 brothers/pledges/rushees will do some activity together). There will be many options for each type of event and you can pick the time that fits with your schedule. Unfortunately, because of our commitment to having a close community and maintaining a high quality of service, we are unable to offer a bid to everyone who rushes. If you do receive a bid, you will pledge during the Fall of 2018.

If you have further questions about rush or APO, please email me at apo.rushchair@gmail.com. We are so excited to get to know you!

In Leadership, Friendship, and Service,

Julia Davatzes - Rush Chair
