Sororities can contribute significantly to the quality of the undergraduate experience at the University of Washington, helping their members develop personal and leadership skills that can serve them well. The groups also offer many opportunities for students to identify, test and refine their leadership abilities, and to engage in public-service activities that are of benefit to the larger community.
Just like any other organization, membership in a sorority does have commitments. However, it is very common for sorority members to work, participate in University athletics, and volunteer for the community throughout the academic year. It is expected that sorority members will participate in certain chapter activities, meet financial obligations, and in some cases, assist with minimal duties within the house.
If you are considering sorority living, you have several different options to get involved. Potential new members can get an idea of what Greek life is like with Greek preview, than continue with formal recruitment in the fall or the continuous open bidding process to become part of a new chapter. If joining a sorority sounds like something you are interested in, register online or contact the Panhellenic office with questions. We look forward to hearing from you!
