Membership Responsibilities


Membership in Panhellenic MTSU sororities requires maintaining a GPA of 2.5 or higher during time spent in college. It is the responsibility of the member to uphold financial obligations to their chapter at all times. Each sorority requests different amounts 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. Sorority membership is a lifelong investment in sisterhood, service, scholarship, and leadership.

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.

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.

Photo Service

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).

Friendship

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.
