What's It Like?

"My sorority sisters mean the world to me. I can honestly say that I've met my future bridesmaids and best friends through my sorority. Because my sorority is so diverse, I have met so many wonderful girls, girls I would have never had the opportunity to talk with otherwise. Although my chapter consists of over 120 girls, I know if I ever had an issue or needed help, every single one of them would be there by my side."
