Transcript of U of T Sororities Recruitment 2013 Info Session Prezi

University of Toronto
Sororities
Defining "Sororities"
Value- based organizations

Not transient

Academic and public service societies

 Undergraduate, residential groups

The Panhellenic Council and Rho Gammas
The Panhellenic Council unites all seven sororities
and organizes recruitment!

Each house has representatives from their house
that "dissassociate" in order to reatin the integrity
of the recruitment process
Benefits of Going Greek
Sisterhood
Women in different years, programs, colleges
Bigs/littles, families within your sorority
Bonding through so many activities!

Philanthropy
Each sorority supports their own charity and raises money through huge events hosted annually.

The Greek community comes together and volunteers as a collective, impacting the U of T community greatly
Networking
Powerful connections to diverse industries
Insider's secrets for securing a job
Tap into vast knowledge of women with relevant experience
Academics
Minimum 2.0 GPA
Academic scholarships through Panhel and your own sorority
Recognition of achievement
Support systems
Greek students have GPAs above the University undergraduate average (LAUREN MALDONADO/Staff 2012)

Sororities’ structure places academics before everything else, and that is what keeps GPAs high.

Things you need to know
Time Commitment
Typically, Monday and Thursday nights are important to have free (at least).

Some weeks are busier than others (weekend events, all-day leadership workshops, sisterhood retreats)

Keep organized!

Finances
Each sorority has different membership fees that include many aspects of sorority life
Payment plans
First year is the most expensive due to one-time fees (i.e., your badge, new member fee)
Alumnae
Sorority involvement continues after graduation

You can be active in any chapter at any university!
