Joining a Sorority
Why join a sorority?
Being in a fraternity/sorority is a social experience based on the fundamental right of a free people to form voluntary associations. It is one of the enrichments of college life. Membership is arrived at by mutual choice and selection and is through invitation. Fraternities/Sororities exist because they:
Provide a good democratic social experience.
Give value beyond college years.
Create, through their ideals, an ever-widening circle of service beyond the membership.
Develop the individual’s potential through leadership opportunities and group effort.
Fill the need of belonging. Fraternities/Sororities continue because young people feel a continuing need to belong.
College administrations, recognizing the values of fraternities/sororities, continue to welcome them on their campuses and to invite them to establish new chapters.
Reasons why people join a Greek organization vary and may change over the course of collegiate membership. These reasons include:
Finding a home away from home with lifelong friends
Leadership and service opportunities
Social activities and opportunities
Specific philanthropy of a sorority
