Sororities at Frostburg State

Recruitment Counselors 2021
Panhellenic Council Board 2021-22



Historically, sororities were organized for social reasons; for women to make friends and connections on a college campus as women were just being allowed to apply for collegiate studies. Sororities offer female students a place where they can build leadership skills, pursue philanthropic work, promote scholarship, offer mentorships (big little process) and keep their members engaged in collegiate life by offering activities such as formals and mixers, homecoming rituals, and other social events.   While one perk of joining a sorority might be its easy access to an active social life, the benefits of building ties with one's "sisters" don't end at graduation. National Greek alumni organizations help students network for potential employment opportunities once they've received their degrees, seek our fellow members from other chapters across the entire United States and other countries and encourage members to build bridges through newsletters, meetings, and special events.
