What can being a Sorority member do for me?
Most of us have probably heard that being in a sorority is just "paying for your friends", but it is so much more than that. Each Sorority at OU strives for promoting values, education, leadership, cooperation, and friendship among its members. You'll see that many of our Panhellenic woman are not just leaders in the Greek life community, but are rising up as leaders all over campus. Each chapter not only holds their members accountable for their grades, volunteer work, and values, but they also serve as a great support system!
