Social Sororities


Interested in joining a social sorority? Check out our Panhellenic Look Book for more information! Sign up for social sorority recruitment here, and check out all of our panhellenic chapters at @panhellenicsu.

College is a time to explore who you are, what matters to you, and what value you want to bring
to the world! And joining a sorority is about finding your people – the women who will cheer you on and challenge you along the way. Your future sisters will be there to support you as you learn all that you’re capable of, and through the sorority experience you’ll tap into your potential through exploring leadership, giving back to the community, and serving others.
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.
Like what you’ve heard? Want to meet the Shepherd University sororities? Sorority Recruitment is where you find your people! Sign up by September 6th!
