Winter 2021 Rush: A Glitch in the Matrix

Hello potential new members!

UCLA DKA’s Delta Chapter is hosting a week of virtual rush events for those interested in joining the fraternity!

If you love film, interested in learning more about it, or looking to be part of a group of passionate filmmakers, look no further! Our events are open to all UCLA students until the Blue Chip Dinner, which is invite-only. If you are serious about joining, please try to attend as many events as you possibly can so we can get to know you better! Additionally, rushing does not guarantee a spot in the fraternity, it is only the beginning of the recruitment process. Below is a list of events, click on each one to receive a description and RSVP, and please submit your official application for rushing through the button above!

To kick off the week, we will be having an information session on the recruitment process on Friday, January 15th and another one on Saturday, January 16th at 5:00 pm PST, so please come with any questions you may have! Otherwise, feel free to send us a question beforehand through our contact form!

Wish you could attend one of our rush events, but have a previous commitment? Please fill out the Event Absence Form accessible through the button below (preferably at least 24 hours in advance), and we will take your conflicts into account throughout the rush process!

We cannot wait to meet you and are looking forward to seeing you at our rush events!

Why Join DKA?

DKA was founded in 1936 at the University of Southern California on the principles of fostering lifelong character and collaboration, mastery of creative storytelling, ethical and productive career practices, constant growth and learning, philanthropic action, and a value-based professional community by and between cinematic artists. Today the fraternity has grown to become the oldest and largest professional cinema fraternity in the world, with chapters at top film schools in the world, and with a large and growing list of prominent alumni. The men and women of DKA reflect the cinema community’s diversity and are united by a common interest of professional development in the cinematic arts and collaboration through strong moral character.

What is Recruitment?

Each Fall and Winter quarter at UCLA, DKA holds a Recruitment Week where each prospective member will submit a written application and attend a series of events (several public and then “by invitation only”) with current members of the organization. Recruitment Week is not facilitated as a means of disqualifying people, but rather it is a process of attracting and professionally evaluating candidates who would fit well in our organization. Also, DKA is not only for film students! We are proud to have members from a wide range of majors.
