Joining a sorority or a fraternity is the start of a new life. You will be welcomed into a family of men or women who will stand beside you, support you, encourage you and respect you. These men and women will become your brothers and sisters, friends and mentors for the rest of your life. All sororities and fraternities are different, yet they are built on the inherent principles set forth to further develop you both as an individual and a college student.

During your first semester of affiliation, sororities and fraternities plan activities to develop your knowledge of the chapter which you have joined, better acquainting you with its members while informing you of the goals of that particular chapter. All sororities and fraternities plan different activities such as study groups, mixers, formal dinners and service projects, all designed to give you the opportunity to learn more about the other members of your chapter.

Joining a sorority or fraternity leads to lifelong relationships and unending support from your new sisters and brothers. These women and men will embody the true sense of the word sisterhood and brotherhood. They will be the ones who stay up late to study with you, sit and talk to you when you need advice, help you deal with tough times and laugh with you when life smiles down on you. The meaning of sisterhood not only encompasses what these individuals will do for you, but what you will be able to contribute to the chapter as a unique individual.
