How do I choose a sorority?
Southwestern has deferred recruitment, which means you as first year women have the opportunity to meet members of each sorority throughout the fall semester. During the fall semester, many events are sponsored by each of the sororities as an opportunity for you, as first year women, to meet the members.
This is an important first step. After learning about each organizations and meeting women from each, you are the one to decide which sorority is best for you-which sorority you could call “home.”
NALFO, NPHC, and NPC suggest that you keep an open mind. Take plenty of time to make a decision. Don’t let your decision be influenced by others. Don’t be fooled by misleading stereotypes. The members of each sorority are individuals. Take the time to get to know them.
When choosing a sorority, think both of what you may gain from the group as well as what you have to offer. Do not be carried away by the glamour of recruitment. Be wise, open-minded, and sincere in your choice. Look beneath the exterior and find a solid foundation for judging the character of the women within each group. Consider every aspect of sorority life carefully.
Get acquainted with as many different sorority members as possible before you take the final step and sign your acceptance card. The group you choose will not only be your associates in college, but also your friends throughout life.
