I. CHANGE SLIDE I’m sure many of you have seen the movies “Animal House” or “Legally Blonde”. If not, they both portray the exaggerated and stereotypical life of college students involved with fraternities and sororities. This stereotype includes red Solo cups, beer pong, blonde sorority sisters, and of course, toga parties. II. Well, as a proud, first year member of Chi Omega here at the University of Wisconsin- Madison, CHANGE SLIDE I can assure you there is way more to Greek life than snapping your fingers for your sorority sisters and cheering “toga, toga!” I honestly wasn’t so sure what to expect from sorority life, but now I realize that I made the best decision by involving myself in Greek life here at college. III. I am just one of the 400,000 active members in Greek life nation wide. Though 400,000 people sounds like a big number, only 3% of the college students in the United States go Greek. IV. Today, I would like to encourage you to become one of the 400,000 and get involved with a fraternity or a sorority. If you already are a fellow Greek member, you may not even realize all that is available to you through this incredible new part of your life. According to UW-Madison’s Greek community website, “The fraternity and sorority community works towards developing students in four principle areas: academics, leadership, service to community, and social development.”

First, as a sorority sister or a fraternity brother, you are provided with instant friends, an instant social life, and even a sense of a second family. A.i. Once you have become a member, you have an immediate connection to your brothers and sisters. A.ii. Just as the book, Fraternity Row explains, “The typical chapter provides abundant opportunities for practicing the art of human relationships.” (151) A.iii.
