Why do I want to join a sorority?

Joining a sorority is like joining a big family. You’ll gain hundreds of sister within your campus’ chapter, other schools’ chapters, and alumni around the world. This makes it easy to make friends and have support, even as a new kid on campus. Most friendships you make in Greek life will last a lifetime.

Can a sorority force you to live in the house?

I know a lot of sororities will, deliberately or not, misrepresent their live-in policies. During rush a lot of sororities will say that their policy is “You need to live in the house for at least one year unless it’s full.” In reality, most groups have the policy that you must live in until the house is full.

Can you be in a sorority and not live on campus?

Some sororities may require members to reside in the house or at least on campus. Room and board expenses vary with each sorority, but the expense is usually comparable to a college dorm. However, off-house members may have to pay parlor fees for using the house during meetings and activities.

Do freshmen live in sorority houses?

Do Freshmen Live in Fraternity Houses? Your university Greek Life system and chapter may have specific rules about this. It may be that freshman members live in the house, or else that you must wait until your sophomore year (if, for instance, your university requires you to live in the dorms as a freshman).
