10 Reasons To Join A Sorority

Whether you’re an incoming freshman or considering recruitment as a returning student, you might be wondering if sorority life is for you. We outlined 10 reasons why joining sorority life might be the right choice for you.

1. You’ll join a community of like-minded women.

Sorority membership provides a community of women who share similar values, goals and aspirations. These women will support you as you navigate your collegiate experience.

2. You’ll participate in service opportunities.

Every sorority has their own philanthropic cause that they support on their campus and within their community. These services provide an opportunity to give back and fulfill each sister’s unique passion.  

3. You’ll receive leadership opportunities.

Some of us prefer to lead the group, while others would rather work behind the scenes—both are essential. Joining a sorority allows you to gain valuable skills and experience with all aspects of leadership.
