Joining a Greek organization can provide numerous benefits. Becoming a part of a sisterhood can be a fun and exciting college experience that you can benefit from for many years to come! View our Parents information page for more details.
The academic portion of your university career is one significant determinant in your future success. A primary purpose of the sorority community is to encourage and develop high scholastic achievement among its members. Several factors contribute to this academic atmosphere, including peer tutoring, upperclassman counseling, leadership training, chapter study hours, and many more. These all will help new students become more familiar to the longer and more intense studying that college requires over time. Delta Kappa Delta Sorority, Incorporated is also involved in a wide variety of colleges and departments. This is quite an advantage in two ways: First, you will be able to seek help from others who may be taking or have already taken the same classes. Second, there will be upperclassmen who can advise you on which classes and instructors are the best within each field of study. While also being able to connect with members that have similar majors and career path for advice and guidance. Joining a sorority can help you meet the challenge of balancing academics while gaining the most from your collegiate experience.
Being able to have a separate life other than meeting the demands of the classroom is one of the benefits of the Greek community. Throughout the year a Greeks will participate in many social events such as Homecoming, Parent’s Weekend, dinner dances, backyard barbecues, Greek Week, Formals, and so much more. These events offer you a good time and a great opportunity to meet and interact with members from other organizations on campus. These social activities are not required, but for those of us who enjoy a good social setting, there is no comparison anywhere to the variety, scope, and just plain fun of Greek social events.
As a sister in a sorority, you will instantly create a relationship with all of its members across the country. Your social and professional networks will expand instantly and you will have a chance to meet bright, young, and inspiring individuals in a multitude of different fraternal organizations. Additionally, you will be exposed to women in all facets and paths of life that otherwise may have not been accessible.
Sororities and fraternities are built upon creating strong future leaders. Over 85% of the student leaders on some 730 campuses are involved in the Greek community. There are an abundance of opportunities available to take ownership of your organization on a local and/or national level. As a self-regulating organization, these leadership opportunities allow sororities to build strong and ethical women leaders.
Culture & Unity
Spreading culture is another benefit to joining a Greek organization; specifically one based on culture. As a sister, you will have the opportunity to bond with other women who share a passion for spreading or learning about our different cultures and backgrounds. Although our roots are South Asian based, We are not exclusive and promote diversity. Additionally, sororities often unite and create strong relations on the basis of culture.
As a member of the Greek community, you will be able to help change and shape the community around you. With philanthropy being one of the main pillars of many Greek organizations, community service and volunteering are at the forefront of Greek life activities. The Greek system is the largest network of volunteers in the US, with members donating over 10 million hours of volunteer service each year.
Some of our local chapter and colony members participate in the numerous competitive sports through intramurals and Greek tournaments. If you are into sports, some times it can be difficult to get a group of people on your own to play intramural teams, yoga, and outdoor activities together with a busy college schedule. Greek life offers all of this along with the pride of sportsmanship, team spirit, and competition. It is a good outlet when things get stressful.
