Four Parts of Sorority Life
Schoalrship: AUM Panhellenic sororities recognize the importance of scholarship. All chapters have study hall hours to assist with time management. Academic achievement is promoted by national sororities, individual chapters, and the Panhellenic Association through distribution of annually awarded scholarships.
Service: The desire to serve others is one of the most important qualities that is developed in a sorority member. Each sorority has chosen a local or national philanthropy to support through financial donations and volunteer hours. Through the academic year, a sorority will host multiple fundraisers for their specific philanthropy. Sorority women spend thousands of hours volunteering in the community while developing a lifestyle of serving others in need.
Sisterhood: Joining a sorority is a new experience with friends and gaining a home away from home. During the first semester of a new member’s association, all activities are designed to orient her with the sorority’s history and goals while working towards initiation. Activities such as retreats, service projects, study programs, and meetings will assist her in building a strong foundation in sorority life. Each sorority has its own mentor (or big sister) program that allows new members to be have additional support throughout their sorority experience.
Leadership: Membership in a sorority provides opportunities for the development of leadership skills. Within the chapter a member has the opportunity to hold a committee position or chapter officer position. The Panhellenic Association also has additional positions available to chapter members. We also encourage members to join organizations outside of their chapters such as Honor Societies, Special Interest groups, and Student Government Association
