The Sorority Life
Sorority membership offers endless opportunities to enrich a woman's life during both her collegiate years and those that follow. Women grow as leaders, participate in both social and service events, enjoy a wide variety of intramural and sisterhood activities, and most importantly, develop strong bonds of sisterhood and a "home-away-frome-home" during the college experience. Though many negative stereo-types and expectations are associated with membership, sororities are in truth home to women who excel academically, strive to better their community, and seek to be involved and successful on their campus and beyond. The following website provides information regarding sorority membership and answers questions for prospective members and parents.
