of the most tossed around phrases in the sorority world is "It's not four
years, it's for life." It may sound cliché, but it's also 100 percent
true. Sorority membership doesn't stop when you cross that stage and get your
college diploma, and it's not over when you're initiated into your
organization's alumnae association. Sorority membership can last for as long as
you want it to; how else do you think a woman gets to be the national president
of her organization?
the time sorority women are seniors in college they can be pretty busy. Many
have jobs, internships, full course loads and extracurricular activities, but
they still manage to make time for their chapters and stay connected to their
sisters. Even actions as little as hanging out a few minutes longer at a meal
or taking a break to sit down and watch a TV show can help women stay involved.
sororities spend time at the end of the school year showing their appreciation
for seniors by putting on a "Senior Week," full of fun and activities
designed to send off the seniors. Every chapter has different activities, but
some might include "wills," where seniors pass meaningful sorority
items down to younger girls in the chapter, or a special senior dinner. The
week is also a time for women to reflect on everything that the organization
has meant to them throughout college.
remember how being part of a sorority doesn't have to be something that you
only do in college? All 26 NPC member groups have alumnae chapters throughout
the country. This means that no matter where you go to work after graduating,
you'll probably be near an alumnae chapter for your organization. Alumnae
groups are something extra special to be a part of, because they connect you
with sisters from different chapters of your organization.
Membership in a sorority is a special,
lifelong experience. Are you ready to check it out for yourself?
