All schools have a different method of selecting girls for a sorority depending on the intensity of their Greek system.But typically there will be a "rush week" which gives prospective sorority gals the chance to visit the different houses, meet the members, and get to know the basics of each sorority (what they stand for, their role on campus, etc).Once rush is over, sororities discuss whom they'd like to invite to join the house, and if a girl receives multiple offers she can weigh the options of which one to join.

I'm not familiar with other schools, but I highly doubt there are too many out there with more greek orgs than mine. I was interested in pledging one but they didn't give me a bid.

That was my friend's fraternity, one of the biggest ones on campuses with a huge house and 50-75 brothers.

They were all generally friendly and you could go and hang out with them, but clearly there was a separate line between you and a brother.

It can be difficult to meet other people or do activities outside your sorority because your entire social life will revolve around the house.

But if that's the type of college experience you're looking for then nothing else can compare!

I'm going to give the perspective of an independent. One of those schools with a well known football team and pretty much just like how it's depicted in popular movies like Old School.My school has close to 90 greek organizations according to the greek council site I just checked.When it comes time to select a major or if you have questions about college life, you have a built-in resource of older girls you can go to for advice or mentoring.Sororities are known to have a thriving social scene and many are focused on philanthropic events, so it's a great opportunity to meet others with like-minded interests, not to mention your social calendar will always be full!The drawbacks of joining a sorority are that it can be a huge time and money commitment, so if you are considering Greek life as part of your college experience be sure to ask each house what they anticipate the expenses will be beyond dues (the amount of money you pay to be a part of the sorority) so that you know what you're getting into before you join.The social perks of being involved in a sorority can also contribute to some of the drawbacks.
