"Membership in SAE fraternity at Maryland Beta is for life!"
Recruitment (more popularly known as Rush) is a year long process. Maryland Beta is constantly seeking out quality men who possess those traits inherent of a true gentleman and a loyal son of Minerva. Our fraternity is bound together by the principles of our Ritual from nearly 162 years ago and our Creed, The True Gentleman. Some of the traits and qualities we look for include, but are not limited to: above average scholarship, participation in athletics and/or extracurricular clubs and activities, leadership abilities, commitment to volunteerism and community service and the desire to cultivate and develop lifetime friendships. Membership in SAE is for life and the fraternity fosters these relationships among all individuals, irrespective of age, race, ethnic background, religion or creed.

If you would like more information or know of an individual who meets the high standards we desire for membership, then we ask that you complete a Rush Recommendation. The Recruitment/Rush Chairmen are the officers of the chapter responsible for following up and communicating with the prospective member and/or requester. Please use the following process to submit and track a Recruitment "Rec":

  • Prospective members (and high school students) should click on the "Rush" menu, then "Request Rush Information" button in the top red menu bar and complete as much of the on-line form information requested as possible (the more the better).

  • Alumni members (and collegiate members) should click on the "Alumni" menu, then "Rush Recommendations" button in the top red menu bar and complete as much of the on-line form information requested as possible (the more the better).

  • Once completed and submitted, the "Rec" will be automatically forwarded to the Recruitment/Rush Chairman of the chapter for review and follow-up.
