At a University as large as Texas A&M, it's easy to get lost in the shuffle. Joining a sorority can help personalize your college experience by offering scholastic support, hands-on experience, interaction with faculty and administrators, exposure to potential careers through educational programs and discussions with alumnae, the chance to give back to the community through various service and philanthropy projects, as well as close friends with whom you will form strong support systems and lifelong friendships.

A Home Away From Home!
Coming to a large campus can leave students feeling alone. Perhaps the most mentioned aspect of sorority life is the friendship and camaraderie that exists between members of a chapter. The Greek community helps to instantly connect students to the campus. Sorority life promotes the development of close ties between members through working toward common goals, living, and having fun together. These relationships transcend ordinary friendships to become that of a brother or a sister. Like family ties, the bond formed is for a lifetime.
College is a place for education and learning. Academics play a major role in the Greek community. Academics are stressed by each sorority throughout the Texas A&M University Greek Community. 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 3.320, while the all undergraduate women’s GPA was 3.103. Our Greek community even has Order of Omega, our own honor society.
Sororities exemplify democracy in action. Officers are elected within the chapter to manage the day-to –day operations of the organization. These officers are assisted by members serving on committees and by alumnae who act as advisors. In addition, the national headquarters have regional and national leadership conferences where students can learn a variety of leadership skills. Sororities provide a solid foundation in leadership training that prepares women for the demands and responsibilities they will face in the future.
Community service is an important aspect of TAMU’s Greek Life. It is safe to say that no other university entity has dedicated more time and resources, or has raised more money for charity than the members of the Aggie Greek community. From volunteering in elementary schools, to giving blood, to raising money for charity, TAMU’s sorority members can be seen helping their community.
