ASU’s Greek Life for women on Jan. 16 gathered in the Health and Human Services Building to discuss academics, recruitment and issues that can help the community.
As the spring semester begins, sororities across campus encourage young women to join their organizations for opportunities of leadership, community service and friendship.
“We encourage women who are in college to go through recruitment if they are looking for a great way to get involved on campus,” said Madelyn Day, Panhellenic Council president of Sigma Kappa. “We have had so much growth since I’ve come to college and I can’t wait to see more of it.”
Students who are interested must have a 2.7 GPA from high school and pay a small recruitment fee, Day said.
The organizations not only take their education seriously, but they also want to make all women feel welcomed into their Greek family.
“Panhellenic, as a whole, provides opportunities for the women in Delta Zeta and Sigma Kappa to grow personally, whether it’s making them more confident, more social, even pushing them to do better in academics,” said Alexis Ortiz, vice president of recruitment for Panhellenic.
Recruitment will be held on campus for new and returning students before classes begin in the fall semester of 2019.
“Recruitment will be the week before school starts,” Ortiz said. “Girls will get to move in early and will already have a chance to get familiar with campus.”
The sororities want all women attending ASU to save the date from Aug. 16 to Aug. 20 so they will have an equal opportunity to join.
“I don’t feel like there is a certain criteria you need to fit to be a sorority woman,” Ortiz said. “I say this because once women find their chapters, they find themselves and grow into the amazing leaders our chapters at ASU have helped create.”
The organizations hope for new recruits to continue the sorority legacy at ASU and remember what it takes to be part of the Greek family.
“As Panhellenic president, I really hope that we are able to make big strides in the Panhellenic community this next year and grow Greek life as much as possible,” Day said. 
Registration for Sigma Kappa and Delta Zeta will begin in April.
