I am considering joining a sorority if I go to UNC next year. Could anyone give me a feel for the sorority system at UNC, like a description of the best/worst sororities and the type of people they usually attract.
Two of my really good friends are in sororities, one's in ADPi and one's in KD. Both of which are considered good sororities here that a lot of girls looking to get into the greek scene are into. I haven't met my KD friends' sisters yet so I can't give you a referral, but I think she really likes it and has made good friends there. My friend in ADPi adores the girls in her sorority, and I've gone to two of her events with her and thought the ADPi girls are really fun (and funny!). That's all I can help you out with, though, sorry!
I'm in a sorority The greek system at UNC is pretty laidback and not super hardcore like at other universities... I don't feel comfortable posting the reps of the sororities publicly, so is it okay if I just PM you instead?
I have a friend in Alpha Chi Omega and her as well as all her sisters I've met are awesome, really friendly and funny girls. It takes up a TON of your time at the beginning of the semester, but it gets more laidback and doesn't completely consume your life. I play lacrosse with a few girls in sororities and they all have time for other social stuff.
Ha I won't be shy about it cuz I'm not in one, but almost all my friends are. Most of my friends are ADPi and are adorable and I love them. The alpha chis I've met are also sweethearts! Zetas are really fun, but seem to be very exclusive, and I don't know much about the other two main ones-- Tri-Delt and Tri-Sig. Oh, and KDs are sweeties too! It's hard to stereotype them all I guess... go and rush and see what ya like. Rush was too intense for me time-wise so I dropped out before it even began and I've been fine as far as having friends goes. :-P Don't feel you have to be Greek at UNC, but if you can afford it, both time and money wise, I say go for it.
If you do decide to rush, don't make up your mind beforehand based on reputations and rumors, and just go with what feels right. UNC also has some fabulous black and cultural sororities as well if anyone's looking for a slightly different experience.
No, actually. My good friend was pledging Alpha Chi and just decided that sorority life wasn't for her. She left it and her ex-to-be-sisters still are really friendly to her, she said, because I had wondered the same thing. It wasn't a big deal for her to leave.
I was just wondering if it was unusual at UNC for sophomores to rush during the fall. At the beginning of the year I came in very skeptical about sororities but after meeting some of the girls I have changed my mind...any comments about sophomores rushing?
i have a friend who rushed in the fall of her sophomore year & pledged phi mu--she already had friends in the sorority, though, which helps. she said that she'd tell some girls at rush that she was a sophomore and they'd be super unreceptive afterward, but if you meet girls like that you wouldn't want to join their sorority anyway!
