of affiliation fees, however, they are reasonable and payment plans or scholarships
are available within most. Other responsibilities may include participation in weekly
meetings, study hours, community service projects, and optional social activities.

Benefits of Membership
A sorority provides academic enhancement, friendship, development of leadership skills,
and the opportunity to serve the community. As a national organization, a sorority
generates personal and professional growth through networking while participating
in activities well beyond one's college years.
Scholarship is one of the most important aspects of your college life. MTSU sororities
take great pride in achieving high scholastic standards. Each chapter has a specific
scholarship program that encourages each member to strive for academic excellence.
Sororities do this by regulating study hours, maintaining resources files, rewarding
those who do well, and helping those with difficulties. Academic networking is a major
benefit of a sorority life, having immediate access to upperclassmen who can provide
information about different majors, advisors, professors, and study skills. Sorority
women realize that the only way to achieve in college and in life is to learn.
The biggest benefit received from joining a sorority is the opportunity for leadership.
A sorority allows involvement not only in a specific chapter, but on the entire campus
as well. 85% of MTSU organizations and leadership positions are held by Greeks. No
matter where you look on the MTSU campus, Greek women are in the spotlight. Sorority
women hold positions in the Student Government Association (SGA), MTSU ambassadors,
Resident Assistants, Student Orientation leaders, various professional and honor societies,
MTSU athletics, and many more. Membership in a sorority is an ideal way to get involved.
Additionally, each chapter depends on the special talents of its membership to coordinate
the self-governing aspects of the organization. From the management of the budget
to programming of the chapter activities, decisions are ultimately made by the members
of the sorority. Whether serving as an officer, member, or on a committee, the opportunity
to apply and enhance your leadership abilities are provided and encouraged.
Sororities at MTSU spend hundreds of hours each semester doing community service projects
and raising money for charities. Each chapter has its own philanthropy which serves
at a local and national level. Each sorority holds annual events on campus to raise
money for their chapter. Panhellenic also completes services projects as a collective
body, hosting the Panhellenic Easter Egg Hunt, the Halloween Carnival, Up Till Dawn,
many charity walks, and events sponsored by MTSU. The Panhellenic Council is also
highly represented at the Southeastern Panhellenic Conference (SEPC).
One of the most memorable benefits of joining a sorority is the indescribable relationship that members develop with one another. Friendships that last a lifetime are cultivated through sorority activities and relationships. Sorority members refer to one another as sisters, representing a truly deep connection. Sororities are like families providing support and encouragement to one another throughout life's ups and downs. Sisters are a light upon each member's incredible collegiate journey. Members share stories, laughter, challenges, secrets, and most importantly their hearts with one another. The friendships that form between sisters are mutually rewarding.
