Sorority Stereotypes February 22, 2010

Filed under: Personal,PRCA 3330 — Caroline Rawlins @ 2:11 am

With being a member of a sorority there are always questions about the “type” of sorority I belong to. I take this question with a grain of salt and try to explain that there are types given to certain sororities and Greek life as a whole but that most of them are wrong. Sororities (mine for sure) were not founded on the ideals of partying, skipping class, and acting a fool.

Mine, Alpha Delta Pi, was founded on the ideals of Christian womanhood. We keep a GPA that is higher than the average Georgia Southern student, participate avidly in philanthropic events of their own sorority or for ones of another sorority. We are also involved in many on campus organizations such as Southern Ambassadors, Student Government Association, SOAR, and others.

So, next time you see a woman on campus or in the community with Greek letters of any type, try to look past the letters and look at the person.The letters do not define us, we define the letters and make them just an outward symbol of our inner strength.
