How will my daughter benefit from joining a sorority?
Sororities are rooted in principles that foster academic achievement, student involvement, leadership opportunities, community service, connections with culture, and life-long friendships. Joining a sorority will encourage members to get involved in the community and the university to enhance their college experience.
What time commitment is involved in going greek?
The time commitment varies depending on whether the member is a new member or an active member. When new members participate in the education program, they spend time developing leadership and time management skills, learn about the history and values of the sorority, and get acquainted with their new member class along with the active sisters of the chapter/charter. Active members participate in weekly chapter/charter meetings, workshops, annual philanthropies, service events, socials/mixers, sisterhood retreats, and support other organizations at their events. All members are encouraged to become involved in campus activities and leadership positions inside and outside of the chapter/charter while remembering that academics always come first.
What are the financial obligations of sorority membership?
Joining a sorority does carry a financial commitment as each chapter/charter is supported through the dues paid by each member. National dues are $55 per semester, which go toward our sorority insurance policy, scholarships, and sorority events such as our national conference. Chapter/Charter dues vary, but can range from $30 to $175 and go toward social functions, workshops, sisterhood events, and the new member education program.
