Sororities at UW-Madison help potential members to meet members of active chapters, make new friends and decide on a house through an organized process called “Recruitment.” Recruitment is a process that introduces potential members to the Greek community and the many aspects that help to build the four pillars of Greek life: scholarship, citizenship, leadership and friendship. It offers you an opportunity to meet chapter members and peers, while learning what each sorority has to offer. Participating in the recruitment process does not require a person to join a chapter, but enables them to explore and learn about the campus community.

Academically, the sorority chapters maintain a GPA over 3.0. Scholarship and academic achievement are priorities for all sorority members. Another passion of Greek women is philanthropy. Each chapter has its own local and national philanthropy. Members of the Greek community also get involved by participating in the philanthropies of other chapters. The Greek system hosts a variety of campus-wide events, such as Humorology and Greek Week. Through all the activities, friendship and sisterhood are the foundation of each chapter.

NOTE: Of the nineteen sororities listed, four (Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, Sigma Gamma Rho, and Zeta Phi Beta) are a part of the National Pan-Hellenic Council and four (Alpha Pi Omega, Kappa Delta Chi, Lambda Theta Alpha, and Sigma Lambda Gamma) are a part of the Multicultural Greek Council. The remaining eleven sororities function under the Panhellenic Association.
