Sororities @ UAlberta - Are they for me ?
Do you enjoy volunteering?
Is high academic achievement important to you?
Do you enjoy meeting new people?
Do you want to use your time at college to learn not only in the classroom, but also to grow as a person with new life skills that will help you beyond your years in school?
Do you enjoy participating in athletics?
Do you enjoy performing on stage in dance or theater?
Do you like to organize and run events?
Do you like to be involved in a wide variety of activities?
If you can answer yes to any of these questions, then you can find a home in a sorority. Every campus and every chapter is different, but sororities participate in all kinds of things from intramural activities, to short theater productions, to musical performances, and much more! On top of that, they host events to raise money for local charities and volunteer at a wide variety of local organizations. And if you get involved in the leadership roles, you'll basically be an officer on the board of a small corporation.
We're not saying that sorority life is right for everyone, everywhere. To see if it's a fit for you, try going through recruitment. You'll meet lots of new people -- and potential sorority sisters.
THE REAL DEAL
Being in a sorority is NOT what you see on TV and in movies. Yes, there are social functions, fraternity men and visitors from the inter/national organization, but life does not revolve around these things. It is so much more! Is high academic achievement important to you?
What sororities are:
A life-long support system that provides career opportunities and networking opportunities during college and in the real world.
An organization that values philanthropy and community service.
A place where women learn to be leaders.
A place to meet amazing friends who will always be there for you when you need them.
A place to enjoy formal dances, date parties and other fun social events.
What sororities are NOT:
A place that puts your looks and wardrobe ahead of your values and personality.
Full of ditzy girls who are only out to have a good time.
A place that will haze you or make you do things against your will
Full of rich, spoiled and snobby girls.
A place that is only interested in your money while you’re in school and will forget about you after you graduate.
