Alpha Epsilon Delta, an organization that had just became an official chapter at the University of Arkansas Fort Smith had to begin somewhere. From the time of its conception I was highly involved in the organization. I was voted president after serving on the inaugural executive team as treasurer. Newly formed organizations tend to dwindle without the correct guidance and leadership. I was determined not to let that happen to an organization with such ambitious causes diminish. I was able to reform and drastically develop the organization by using perseverance and problem-solving skills. We went from having one speaker during my term as treasurer to a having an invited speaker every month when I became president. I solved the problems from
I learned so much about the things I was capable and not capable to do and about the foundation of Lambda Theta Alpha Latin Sorority Inc. The lovely ladies of Lambda Theta Alpha Latin Sorority Inc. always made me feel very comfortable to the point that I was able to be myself around them. However, when I tried that with the other sorority members it did not felt the same way. The other sorority made me feel left out and uncomfortable when being around them and that’s something that Lambda Theta Alpha Latin Sorority Inc. did not. Being able to talk one on one, ask for help and talk to the ladies like a regular friend was one of the reason why I chose Lambda Theta Alpha Latin Sorority
As a young woman who strives to make a difference both locally and globally, I know that membership in Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. will aid in accomplishing my life long goals.

The incredible

Day in and day out we hear about high school and college students wanting to pursue a sorority and/or a fraternity based on the stereotypes these organizations uphold, well I chose to differ. I told myself if I ever decided to become a member of a sorority it would be based solely on their ethical standards, history, and values they are founded upon. Alpha Kappa Alpha, Incorporated consists of ladies of distinction and exemplary character who excel in scholarship, leadership, and service, which are qualities I have chosen to uphold. From my perspective, I encourage myself to maintain a respectable appearance and reputation which doing so inspires me to embrace my self-concept; which helps me confidently excel academically and
Members of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated have made everlasting effects on my life.

They never hesitate to take the leadership roles that are needed to see change.

They each have strong leadership characteristics that allow them to serve on executive boards across campus and they all are high achieving students at Cornell.

I know that Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity was established to accomplish the same things that I do, this is one of the many reasons I aspire to join this great fraternity.
Animal house, Sydney White, and The Revenge of the Nerds. These are movies about Fraternities and Sororities that everyday people associate with Greek life; alcohol, drugs, hazing,Togo parties, manipulation, and debauchery in forms of the imagination. Although these things do happen on many levels, as the war cry of the title “Admit Nothing, Deny Everything”, there are many positives. I have personally been positively influenced by a sorority that has permanently changed my life forever. My freshman year of college, I went through recruitment and was chosen to be a pledge sister for Delta Zeta Sorority. I was immediately surrounded by older DZ sisters who became my friends and mentors. I was also made to jump out of my comfort zone with the many projects, and fundraisers the sorority did. I worked with hearing impaired children, I created the homecoming float, and I organized formals and mixers. Thoughthese activities I as able to break out of my shell and have no fear of raising my hand and saying “I’ll do it”. Although Greek life might not be for everybody, there are positives factors to being a part of it.Fraternities and Sororities have made a tremendous turn from where they first began in 1776. From being kept secret, because of social status, to now being heard of in every home. Not many people understand the full meaning of Fraternity and Sorority, being in a sorority or fraternity is always having a group of people to look out of them, too always stick up for
The first Greek organization to assemble was in 1776 at the College of William and Mary. Fraternities were built to provide friendship and recreation. It has been 239 years since the first fraternity was established and now in 2015, there are 123 fraternities and sororities. There are nine million college students involved in Greek organizations (Glass, Nicole). These members are looking to make friends, to build their resumes, to go to social events, or to learn leadership skills. Each member when joining has the incentive to change some aspect of his or her life (Glass, Nicole). If one has the opportunity to join a Greek life organization he or she should for the reasons of giving back to the community, the higher academic standards, the
I would love this opportunity to be involved with Phi Theta Kappa This will be an excellent way for me to meet other Phi Theta Kappa members. I can get to know more people in similar situations to my own, I can learn from them, and maybe they can learn from me. As a college student I feel that it is my responsibility to do everything that I can to make the most of all learning experiences, so I can not in good conscience let this chance slip by.
When presented with the question of, “Do you believe you have fulfilled your obligation as a Kappa Sigma Pledge?” from the Epsilon-Tau chapter, my response is that I have fulfilled my tasks full heartedly to the best of my abilities. So yes, I believe I have fulfilled my obligations. I am one to make sure that when I invest time and effort into one thing, it is a fruit of my energy that I can proudly say I at least put my whole into it. The endeavor of Pledging Kappa Sigma undoubtedly has so far had its ups-and-downs, yet in no way would I ever regret stepping foot into the house. Already, being a part of the Fraternity has benefited myself in several ways from social interactions, to formal obligations, and more. On top of my course studies,
Prior to joining my sorority, I assumed that I had found and established what I thought a true community should look like here on Grounds. In my various groups and clubs, I felt that I had satisfied my craving to feel involved and connected to UVa and the Charlottesville community. But in reality, I was not satisfied. Especially at UVa, there is an overwhelming sense to prove yourself and what you can do. And I felt this pressure immensely. But as soon as I entered the sorority environment, I did not feel this pressure in the slightest and slowly became aware of a different kind of community at work. I soon realized that community within my sorority was different because the strong women around me did not care about what I did or what I could
