What's a sorority?
A sorority is a group of young women who develop life-long friendships. These friendships go beyond wearing the same Greek letters, attending meetings, and going to social events. Sorority has a much deeper meaning. Each woman is respected for her individuality and the unique talents she contributes to the group. Sorority helps each individual grow, and sisterhood develops as women support each other through that growth.
A sorority means having women alongside you to guide and support you during your college years. During your time as a new member, you will get to know many women in your new member class, in your sorority, and in other sororities. All of these women are there to help you throughout your college years and beyond. You will develop close friendships and learn that sisters are always there to offer advice and assistance whenever you need it.
Throughout your college experience, you'll discover new talents, learn new things, and meet new people. In a sorority, you'll experience excitement, joy, laughter, and likely sorrow too - but you will share these experiences with a group of women unlike any other. Your sorority sisters will support you, encourage you, and love you - not only for these four years, but for life.
