Sororities provide an endless support system and encourage lasting bonds. Joining a sorority exposes students to a large network of collegiate members and alumni that can help undergraduates transition successfully into college life and help them find opportunities that will enhance their development.
Sororities exhibit their values in action by contributing to worthy causes in the community and constantly striving for academic success. The value of intellectual curiosity does not end when one earns a diploma; rather it is held throughout a lifetime. With so many organizations to choose from, there is a home for everyone interested in joining our community.
Developing leaders today for life after college is an important part of Greek involvement. Sorority members participate in a variety of programs that provide leadership development. There are many ways to be a leader in the Greek Community, including chapter or council officer positions, national or regional leadership conferences, campus-based leadership opportunities and committee involvement.
Service is a meaningful pillar of sorority involvement. It is perhaps the most personally rewarding of the pillars, as members are provided with opportunities to participate in hands-on volunteer work and implement philanthropic events to raise money for charitable causes. The opportunities ensure that sorority members will have an impact on their community and develop lifelong habits of giving back.
Academic excellence is a vital aspect of sorority life. On average, women involved in sororities earn a higher GPA than the GSU institutional average. Scholastic standards are important for each chapter and the community as a whole. Programming, incentives, recognition and ongoing support help fraternity and sorority members achieve academic success.
Joining a sorority is about building lifelong relationships that extend beyond ordinary friendships. Bonds of sisterhood are formed within an organization and provide GSU Greeks with a home away from home, mentorship, career networking and a sense of community at a large university. Sorority members enjoy lifelong connections that can provide support and celebration in life’s significant moments.
