College is a time to explore who you are, what matters to you, and what you want to bring to the world. A sorority is where you’ll find people that will help you with this new adventure. Your sisters will support you as you learn what you’re capable of and tap into your potential through leadership, community, and service.
Sorority is … coming together to make a difference! Sororities bring incredible women together and provide outlets and support for us to do real good in our community. We believe there is no group at Shepherd that has the power to impact our world like sororities!
Sorority is … fun! It’s about always having those go-to girls you can sing at the top of your lungs with, late-night study buddies, that sister who is there when you need ice cream (or a hug), and a mentor who inspires you to be the best version of you.
Sorority is … a deep network and well of opportunities that will help you succeed – beyond what you can imagine today. Your sorority helps you find your niche at Shepherd through opportunities to connect and lead, and the benefits of the sorority experience are real. Sorority women are three times as likely to have an internship in school and twice as likely to have a job when they graduate.
Sorority is … a community of support. You’ve heard about our “sisterhood.” Sororities provide a family and a home away from home. Your sisters will be there for you – for celebrating your wins, for tough conversations, and for when you need a shoulder to lean on. Sisterhood is deeper than friendship and lasts far beyond the few years we’re in college.
Sorority Recruitment is where you find your people! Sign up by September 6th!
