“No matter the letters, we’re all Greek together.”
I know – rather cheesy, don’t you think? I just wanted to share this fun little quote as Formal Recruitment draws near for many chapters at campuses all over the country. This is a time when sororities are clearly competing against each other, so it’s the perfect time to remind active members that the Greek community as a whole should be respected during this process.
Support your fellow Panhellenic sisters – wish them luck because the new members they gain will become your Panhellenic sisters and will represent the entire Greek community.
We’re all Greek together!
Hello! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I wanted to share a few updates regarding Simply Sorority and its progress.
Simply Sorority has entered the social media world!
Be sure to LIKE Simply Sorority on Facebook and follow me on Twitter. I’ve made a lot of connections through both media channels and am excited about the positive response I’ve received so far.
I’m working with about 6-8 different chapters right now, so there are some great blog posts coming in the next few weeks. It’s my goal to feature sorority chapters from all 26 organizations affiliated with the National Panhellenic Conference.
Here are a few sororities I’m still trying to reach: Delta Gamma, Gamma Phi Beta, Alpha Chi Omega and Zeta Tau Alpha. If you’re a member of any of these organizations, please contact me! As I mentioned though, I want all sororities to be featured, so please don’t hesitate to submit your ideas.
Please continue to spread the word about Simply Sorority. Thanks so much for all your support!
I’m working hard to get all of the 26 organizations affiliated with the National Panhellenic Conference showcased here on Simply Sorority. I’m excited to showcase Chi Omega for the first time!
As you may know, I’m a Chi Omega alumna along with my older sister – yes, we’re sisters in two ways! She is currently an advisor for the Kappa Alpha Chapter of Chi Omega (Kansas State University), and the active members held a philanthropy earlier this week.
- Casino Night
Casino Night was held at the Chi Omega house on campus, as the sisters opened their dining room to the community for a friendly competition of Texas Hold ‘Em and Blackjack. For a $15 donation, guests received a t-shirt, food and poker chips to play.
You can see they had a great turnout – around 100 people attended! So what was this philanthropy benefiting? These Chi Omega sisters were raising money for their local Make-A-Wish chapter in Wichita, Kansas.
Specifically, the money is going to help grant wishes for two brothers who both have a rare form of muscular dystrophy. One brother wants to go to Florida to visit Pixar Studios, and the other wants to visit Alaska to see the stars.
- Advisor, President & Personnel Chair
Chi Omega established an alliance with Make-A-Wish in 2002, and chapters are asked to raise funds for their local Make-A-Wish organizations. It’s a great way to support a national cause on the local level.
So far, the Kappa Alpha Chapter has raised over $1,000 for Make-A-Wish. Every donation helps, as it costs over $7,000 to grant a wish!
I’d like to congratulate these sisters for organizing a wonderful event for such a great cause!
Has your chapter ever organized a casino theme philanthropy?
