Dear Parents,

Welcome to the UAlberta Sororities website, and thank you for taking the time to learn more about our organizations. My name is Nadia Halabi and I am the Vice President Recruitment for Fall 2018.

The University of Alberta is home to four international sororities: Alpha Gamma Delta, Delta Gamma, Kappa Alpha Theta, and Pi Beta Phi. The first Chapter was established on the UofA Campus in 1931, and all four Chapters have been providing a home away from home ever since.

UAlberta Sororities is proud of our women and the reputation of excellence we have earned on Campus. All four organizations actively pursue academic excellence, as this is a top priority. In fact, the All Sorority Average GPA is higher than the All Women’s Average GPA at the University of Alberta. Group study sessions and academic mentoring programs are available and encouraged. In large classrooms of 400 other students, there will often be another sorority woman taking the same class, making campus feel smaller and less intimidating. Many sorority women are leaders and scholars, and go on to pursue further education like law school, medical school, and graduate degree programs.

Being in a sorority, your daughter will also be presented with leadership opportunities within her Chapter. Members have the opportunity to build skills needed in the workforce, such as public speaking, leading a committee, organizing an event, and managing priorities.

As sorority women, we take great pride in giving back to our community. Each sorority has a philanthropy to which they contribute, and will often hold fundraisers to support this cause. In 2017, all four chapters collectively put in hundreds of volunteer hours in support of their foundations!  In addition to this, many women are also involved in a variety of Campus in clubs, on Students’ Council, with Week of Welcome and much more.

Sororities are values-based organizations that strive to foster personal growth and a strong morale. Your daughter will be surrounded by accomplished, caring University women that want her to succeed.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about what sorority life entails for your daughter at the University of Alberta. Should you have any questions about sorority recruitment or membership, please feel free to contact me at phc.vpr@gmail.com. I would love to hear from you!

 

All my best,
