Can you imagine what your life would be like if you hadn’t decided to join Phi Mu Delta? What life lessons, friendships, and memories would you have missed out on? Many brothers showed their love for the fraternity by sharing all the reasons they cherish their membership. These are the stories that remind us just how important the fraternity is and prove

At Western Michigan University, there are many micro-cultures. One particular micro-culture I want to belong to is a sorority by the name of Delta Sigma Theta, incorporated. Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. was founded on January 13, 1913, 103 years ago, by 22 collegiate women at Howard University to promote academic excellence and provide assistance to those in need. Delta Sigma Theta Sorority is the largest African-American Greek-lettered organization. To become a part of this sorority you need to meet the membership requirements. Women may join as undergraduate chapters at a college or university, or through an alumnae chapter after receiving a college degree. There are over 940 chapters over the world, and I’m interested in the Delta
I am writing this letter to express my interest in your illustrious organization, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. I am currently a senior majoring in Criminal Justice, minoring in African American Studies with aspirations of becoming a Social Justice Attorney. Born in the inner city of New York and being raised in the suburbs of Atlanta, I am not your typical Southern Belle or City girl. I like to think of myself as being a fine mix of the two. At a young age my mother groomed me into what she believed a well-rounded lady should be. A woman of substance carries herself eloquently, seeks knowledge in all aspects of life, and understands the importance of philanthropy. All of which characteristics, are thoroughly exemplified in the
I genuinely care about my sorority. I care about our reputation, as well as the safety and well-being of my sisters. Going through rush as a sophomore gave me a unique perspective about joining a sorority. I wasn’t there solely to make friends or go to socials and date nights. I was there to take advantage of everything a sorority had to provide for me at UGA. In Sigma Kappa, I found a sisterhood full of girls who truly are examples of excellence. I remember looking up to Taylor Haynes and even Kat Gillanders for their leadership around campus, and the level with which they carried themselves. I am proud that the girls of Sigma Kappa can walk around UGA without people thinking “look at that trashy sorority girl”. A big role in this is what the Standards Council does. It is important to have a program to steer college students in the right way when they start to go down a negative path. I would like to play a role in holding this standard for all the PC’s to come, so that the Epsilon Epsilon chapter can always be proud of its
Through research online, I am aware that Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., was founded at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana on January 5th, 1911 by ten visionary men; Elder Watson Diggs, Ezra D. Alexander, Byron Kenneth Armstrong, Henry Thomas Asher, Marcus Peter Blakemore, Paul Waymond Caine, George Wesley Edmonds, Guy Levis Grant, Edward Giles Irvin and John Milton Lee. Also through my research, I have learned that the organization is comprised of men who aim to carry out its motto of “Achievement in Every Field of Human Endeavor.” And that due to the organizations focus on leadership and service, I am aware of some of its well-known initiatives such as the Kappa Beautillion from the Guide Right Program, Kappa League and its philanthropy
I want to join Phi Delta Epsilon because it would provide me the chance to build lifelong connections and gain networking opportunities. Most importantly, I see myself forming a bond with other members, studying and sharing memories of what it’s like to be a premedical student at UMass Boston. The ability to connect, strive for success and learning from others with the same goal to attend medical school is what I’m truly seeking as a hopeful applicant of PhiDE. Joining the fraternity is the beginning phase of my strenuous road to become a successful physician.
The first notable member of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Incorporated that really sticks out to me is Umzae George Washington Carver. He was initiated in the Gamma Chapter in the year of 1918. To begin I selected him, because he was a very familiar name. I remember learning about Umzae George Washington Carver in the elementary and middle school. With creating over 100 different uses for the peanut, soybean, and sweat potato he was a very prominent African American man in the 1920s. Umzae George Washington Carver was a very intelligent man paving the way for many other great inventors. Also, in regards to Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Incorporated he was a charter member of the Tuskegee Institute Alumni Chapter. During my research I learned that

Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. was founded on Sisterhood, Scholarship, and Community Service on January 13th 1913 on the campus of Howard University by 22 collegiate women previous members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. left the organization after wanting to change the direction of the sorority including the name, colors, motto, creed, and the shield. These 22 women wanted to use their collective strength to promote academic excellence and to provide assistance to those in need. After the idea was rejected by Graduate chapter member Nellie Quander and other graduate members they reorganized under their own sorority known as Delta Sigma Theta.
There are several components to being in a sorority and sisterhood is one of the most important. By pledging a sorority, you are accepting these girls as sisters, and to create friendships of a lifetime.
However, the chapter is at a crossroads. We expect that all guidelines will be met and all membership expectations will be adhered to. We, as Kappas, must continue to support all that is good and true and beautiful, and we must put aside behaviors and actions that are not in alignment with Fraternity values. The Fraternity is committed to holding members and chapters accountable. Each officer, chairman, and chapter member must take responsibility for the terms of this focus letter. It is imperative that members of Zeta Kappa Chapter work together to adhere to the Kappa Kappa Gamma Fraternity Bylaws, Standing Rules and Policies, and move the chapter in a positive direction.
Theta Chi Fraternity is a social fraternity focused on providing its members with a fulfilling collegiate experience that also prepares them for successful lives after graduation. As the scholarship chair for the Gamma Chi Chapter of Theta Chi Fraternity, I was responsible for the academic success of the chapter. To accomplish this goal, I developed a scholarship program for fostering GPA increases in our membership. Additionally, I monitored the academic success of each brother and worked with individuals to improve their academic
It has been a long running myth that the Greek community is the place to go if you want to buy friends. When I ask people why they did not rush a sorority the most common response is; “ I do not want to pay for my friends.”
