It’s that time of year and college students across the nation are asking themselves the big question: Should I rush?

University of Texas at Arlington’s National Pan-Hellenic Council, the council of historically black fraternities and sororities, participated in an event to introduce the university ‘s students to their respective organizations.

The event, called “Park Jam,” was sponsored by Alpha Phi Alpha Delta Xi Nu chapter. The fraternity’s chapter president Antjuan Hicks said event’s purpose was “to bring awareness about the Greeks at UTA,” according to university’s student newspaper The ShortHorn.

The event attracted sophomore Ayana Smith-Johnson who said she was interested in joining the prominent African American sorority Delta Sigma Theta “this semester,” according to The Short Horn.

“The event attracted my attention because I have always been interested in the Greek life at UTA,” Smith-Johnson said, according to The ShortHorn. “Everyone looked like they were having a fun time, and the steppers know how to please the crowd,” she said.

Delta Sigma Theta is the largest African-Americans Greek-lettered sorority in the world. The sorority was founded Jan. 13, 1913 on the campus of Howard University.
