This March, The Association of Former Students joined together with Texas A&M’s Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life and the Greek Former Student Network to bring Aggie Greek Weekend to Aggieland. Join us as we chat with several in attendance on the impact Greek life has made on them while on campus and after graduation in this month’s episode of Around The Association.Posted by Aggie Network on Monday, April 3, 2017
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
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?
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
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.
