Joining a sorority can be a way to make new friends and to have like-minded people to associate with while in college. If you are a distance education student, there are many sororities that you can join and participate in fully.

History

  • Historically you needed to be an on campus student to join a sorority. These groups consisted of young women who lived in a single residence and participated in various activities, generally around a specific, sorority related theme.

Types

  • There are social sororities that focus on social events and gatherings. There are also academic sororities where grades are important and a minimum grade point average must be kept.

Function

  • Sororities function as families. The members are encouraged to care for and encourage one another.

Benefits

  • The benefits of having a group of like-minded individuals can be both distracting as well as affirming. The members can all help one another attain goals that might be difficult to accomplish alone. It is also a way to forge business connections for life after graduation.

Considerations

  • Many sororities have joined the computer age in that they allow distance education students to join. Generally, those students would attend gatherings of a local chapter of their sorority even if it was at a different college.
