Sorority Recruitment to begin on Thursday
If you have ever considered Greek Life at Eastern Michigan University, whether you are a new or returning student, then now is the time to start learning what it’s all about.
Eastern Michigan University’s Sorority Recruitment 2015 will be kicking off on Thursday, September 17 on the third floor of the Student Center from 5-10 p.m. There will also be a following session from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 19.
“Greek Life is about more than just beautiful colors and Greek letters on various articles of clothing, it’s about building a bond,” said Mikki Smith, a senior social work and psychology major who has recently become a member of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority.
Eastern Michigan University's Greek Community is made up of three councils that are represented through Campus Life. The College Panhellenic Council, the Interfraternity Council, and the National Pan-Hellenic Council each have member chapters on campus.
“Finding your sisters in Greek Life is remarkable because it allows young ladies from all different paths to connect and grow together in ways that many people don’t with biological siblings,” said Smith.
The mission of EMU’s Greek life is to promote a community within EMU that inspires leadership development, fosters personal growth and creates lifelong learning.
“Becoming a member of my org challenged me to step outside my comfort zone and open myself to a friendship and bond that I never knew possible,” said Smith.
Attending Sorority Recruitment does not commit you to anything either, it is just to give you a better idea of what the different sororities on campus have to offer.
“I think students should go through recruitment because it gives a chance for girls to expand their knowledge on what a sorority is really about and how we give back to the community,” said Rachael Arula, a senior journalism and apparel and textile merchandising major and member of Sigma Sigma Sigma Sorority.

“We gain leadership opportunities, lifelong friendships, networking opportunities, community service hours, and a home away from home,” said Arula.
