How Chi Phi Succeeded in an Entirely Virtual Rush

Like many other long-standing traditions, Penn State’s Fall Rush was disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Before the school year started, Penn State declared that fall rush would be entirely virtual. In response to that declaration, many fraternities opted not to participate. The Alpha Delta Chapter, however, decided to embrace the challenge. Working together, the active members were able to quickly adapt to the virtual environment. Their efforts paid off.
