Unless they listed on the flyer that it's for upperclassmen only, you should feel free to attend if you so choose.

I think this would depend on the school and the org. To me a greek mixer (or whatever term you institution may use) is the time to gather information about different organizations. This is the time when you are giving a brief history of the organization and the different things (such as programs and community service projects) that they are involved in on and off campus. This is the time to ask questions that you may have. If you don't feel comfortable asking in front of a group of people pull a member to the side. When attending an informational/rush you are saying that you are expressing interest in being a part of this organization. This is NOT the event to attend to when you are in between organizations because it does not look good to attend more than one. TRUST greeks talk. The name "informational" is misleading to me. It appears as if you should be able to come for information, but really your mind should be made up that this is what you want to do. Yes sometimes you go to informationals and realize that this is not the org for you. In that case, do more research and then try again. But another way to get to know how different orgs interact with each other and the community and to go to their events. This is SO important. I'm not saying be at every event but show you face at some. Because if you can't come to any of our events when you are not in our org how can we expect you to come once/if you join. But this is in my opinion and a lot of greek organizations at both universities I have attended.

Nope, thats what national and chapter websites are for. Conduct research first.

Umm, okay....this could be hit and miss depending on the question and/or the particular member.

No a greek mixer is to INFORM!!! Some schools may call it something different. But in a mixer all the BGLOs on campus give a mini presentation on their organization and then they have a Q and A period. After that they have tables set up for each org where you go around looking at different para and ask questions if you want. They may do it different depending on the school and some may not even have any. This may be the first time some people have heard or seen greek life. You don't have to do research before attending a mixer. However, you may want to hold some questions you have until after you've done research. It is not an informational and no one knows what org you are interested in, if any, because org on the yard is present. The sole purpose of a mixer is to get information! And yes you are very true about the hit or miss part. it does depend on the org and the member!
