Are you curious about sororities? Here's what you need to know.
80's theme party!
Sorority rush is a little different from school to school.
It's a lot different from fraternity rush. It's usually a formal affair.
There are multiple, organized rounds that you will go through. You have a chance to meet girls at every chapter, and take a tour of their houses (if your campus has houses).
Rush is when you really learn about what each sorority means to its members.
At the end of the rush, a house will usually extend you a bid to join, you have the option to accept or decline.
All in the family
A sorority means different things to each member. Everything from true friendships, to support during tough times.
For many it will serve as a great networking system for finding a job in the future!
Regardless of the sorority you join, there are always common threads:
Getting ready with the girls is awesome!
Sisterhood. This is the basis for every house. Participating in events with one another is a great way to meet the girls in your sorority and kick back for some fun. Social events range from movie night lock-ins with manicures and pedicures to extremely competitive games of ultimate Frisbee!
Volunteering. If this is something you feel passionate about, a sorority can help you! Sororities and fraternities on most campus' are required to do at least one major service project a year, called a philanthropy.
These events are designed to be a lot of fun for the volunteers. Swimming competitions, 3-on-3 basketball tournaments, and kiss-offs are just a few of the many fundraising events for charitable causes.
Show THEM the money
Dues for a sorority vary from chapter to chapter, but don't let price fool you. Price doesn't make one house better than another.
Dues average anywhere from $200 to 700 per semester, so know what you're getting yourself into financially. The money often goes toward house events, the house improvement fund, cleaning services, a chef, and other miscellaneous charges.
When all is said and done, it breaks down into a pretty good deal!
