Greek life has many different brackets that it can be broken down into. Last week we talked about the top fraternities, this week we will be talking about the top sororities. Here at the University of Wisconsin Whitewater. We have three national sororities on our campus, Delta Zeta, Sigma Sigma Sigma, and Alpha Gamma Delta. Then we have one sorority that is local to Whitewater, Alpha Sigma.
Difference between National and Local sororities
National sororities can be summarized as a sorority that has been founded in one place but is all over the United States. As a member of a national sorority, there are so many connections that can be made because of the networking of meeting other sisters who can help after graduation get a job or become a friend. Other positives of being in a national sorority would be having the sisterhood bonds and the national corporation that backs up and helps run and manage during our time as members.
Local sororities on the other hand are exactly what the name is local, they are only found on one campus. As an example, we have one local sorority on campus, Alpha Sigma. Just as a national sorority there are positives and negatives. Positives would include; making connections with the alumnae that are local to that school and always having a bond with the university and the sisters a part of that particular greek life.
Greek life always will have its pros and cons. As a member, it will always be something that I remember of my college experience because of the joy it brought me during my college years. I got other testimonies from others who agree that it has brought them so many leadership opportunities, and friends they may not have met before.
