Sorority Life


Howdy!

At a University as large as Texas A&M, it's easy to get lost in the shuffle. Joining a sorority can help personalize and enhance your college experience. The Panhellenic community offers its members

  • Scholastic support

  • Interaction with faculty and administrators

  • Exposure to potential careers through educational programs and discussions with alumnae

  • Opportunities to give back to the community through service and philanthropy projects

  • Close friends with whom you will form strong support systems and lifelong friendships.

 

Why Join a Sorority?

A Home Away From Home

A large campus, such as Texas A&M, can leave students feeling lonely. The Greek community helps instantly connect students to the campus. Joining a sorority is a gateway to lasting friendships and camaraderie that exists between members of a chapter. Moreover, sorority life promotes the development of close ties between members through working toward common goals and building strong relationships. These relationships transcend ordinary friendships to become that of family. Like family ties, the bond formed is for a lifetime.

Scholastic Success

College is a place for furthering education and learning. Academics play a major role in the Greek community and are emphasized by each chapter. Our sororities offer study sessions, scholarship awards, and tutoring assistance. Chapters and national organizations recognize and reward scholastic excellence. The all sorority average is consistently above the all women’s average. In fact, this year the all Panhellenic sorority grade point average was a 3.379, while the all undergraduate women’s GPA was 3.152. In addition, the Greek community has an honor society, Order of Omega

Leadership Opportunities

Sororities exemplify democracy in action. Officers are elected within the chapter to manage the daily operations of the organization. These officers are assisted by members serving on committees and by alumnae who act as advisors. Each chapter has national headquarters that host regional and national leadership conferences centered around values and developing leadership skills. Overall, sororities provide a solid foundation in leadership training that prepares women for the demands and responsibilities of the future.

Community Service

Community service is a major aspect of TAMU’s Greek Life. The Panhellenic community has dedicated over 30,000 hours and raised over $800,000 in philanthropic efforts. Members are seen across campus and the community volunteering and raising awareness for a variety of causes. Each sorority has a local or national philanthropy through which they to give back to the community and support a meaningful cause. As a community, we support Circle of Sisterhood to educate and empower women around the world.

Join Our Community

 

Sorority recruitment is a mutual selection process designed to offer prospective members a chance to learn about the sororities in a concentrated period of time. This opportunity allows potential new members (PNM) to meet the sorority members and ask questions about financial obligations, time commitments, and membership requirements.

Whether or not you decide to join a sorority, formal recruitment is a great way to meet people and get acquainted with life at Texas A&M University

 

Scholarship

 

Academic Excellence in the Panhellenic Community

Each sorority facilitates study hours and has an academic chain to act as a resource to members. Most chapters offer academic mentor systems in which upperclassmen aid underclassmen in navigating college level course. In addition, sororities create a common connection that makes it easy to find women in classes to site with and create study groups.

As an incentive, our collegiate chapters and their respective national organizations recognize and reward scholastic excellence. In fact, Texas A&M sorority women receive thousands of dollars in scholarships through their chapters and alumnae chapters each year. Scholarship money is put toward tuition, fees, books, sorority dues, and more.

The all sorority women's GPA is consistently higher than the university all women's GPA. Aggie Greeks excel in majors across all colleges on Texas A&M's campus from engineering and biomedical sciences to business and education.

Furthermore, when a member of any Greek organization has completed 60 hours, he or she can apply to the All-Greek Honor Scociety, Order of Omega, provided that he or she has a cumulative GPA of 3.2 or higher. This unique opportunity brings together and recognizes outstanding members of the Greek community for their contributions to the university and academic records. 

 

 

Aggies First, Greeks Second

Sorority At other schools, it's easy for one's obligation to their sorority to take precedence over university traditions and involvement. At Texas A&M, we don't sacrifice our school for our letters. We are always Aggies before we are sorority women.  

NPC women can be seen participating and leading on and off campus in organizations ranging from The Big Event to Traditions Council. We value service, excel in academics, and pride ourselves on what we are able to contribute to the hundreds of organizations at Texas A&M.

We are your Fish Camp counselors, the women interviewing you for Tell Your Story, and the instructor of your Body Pump class the the Recreation Center. As Aggie sorority women, we feel a responsibility to use our talents to better our university and love to make friends across campus.
