2017 Panhellenic Council
Dear potential new members,
So you're interested in joining a sorority. Now what? Maybe your neighbor joined a sorority when she went off to college or your mom was in a sorority during her collegiate years. Maybe you've always wanted to join a sorority or maybe you're just now realizing that sorority life might be for you. Or maybe you aren't convinced that you're even right for a sorority; you know all about the stereotypical sorority woman and you're nothing like her. Well, guess what? We're glad you're not her. Because we want you.
We want women who have wanted to join a sorority forever. We want women who aren't so sure. We want women who are leaders and scholars and servants and friends. We want women who have yet to discover these traits in themselves. We want women who are proud and women who are humble. We want women who know their strengths and know their weaknesses, who are powerful in their own right but still have room to grow.
We want women who want us. It doesn't matter what you look like. It doesn't matter where you've been. We don't want you to join our community to be more like us, we want you to join our community to be a better you. It sounds like we just threw a bunch of words at you, right? We can't possibly mean what we say, can we? But we do.
We said it before and we'll say it again. We want you as you are now, so long as you're committed to always being better. If you're still not sure sorority is for you, we hope you'll at least give it a try. You might discover something better than anything you ever dreamed of. We did.
