Many are called, but only the exceptional
We are seeking to extend our sisterhood to
leaders who are academically talented and who are interested in making a positive impacting on the community in the company
of diverse, intelligent, distinguished women. Contact the chapter if you are interested
in membership or more information.
Membership in the Mu Zeta Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. at Texas A&M University-Commerce
is limited to honorable, dedicated, principled women who have a minimum of a 2.5 G.P.A. Continuous membership in any sorority
is a lifetime commitment to sisterhood, scholarship, and service, as well as a long-term financial commitment. We expect
prospective members to have a sense of self identity and confidence, as well as the ability to be a trendsetter. Do you have
what it takes? We have a few recommendations for women considering membership in a sorority:
DO YOUR RESEARCH.
on the characteristics and history of the NPHC
sororities, especially the one you are interested in. Assess your reasons for wanting to be in a sorority, and keep an open
mind. It may help you to decide which one is the right one for you.
GET TO KNOW THE MEMBERS.
the women who are in the sorority and allow them the chance to get to know you by attending their
events and being attentive to their actions on campus. Make sure that these are women that you want to associate with because
joining a sorority is a life long commitment.
PLAN AHEAD ACADEMICALLY & FINANCIALLY.
All sororities were founded on community service; this means a lot of hard work, dedication,
as well as dues & other miscellaneous costs. Make sure your time management skills are up to the test, because your first
priority at school is to graduate and nothing should stand in its way.
"But, what if I do not have the grades
to become a member of a sorority?"
Well that's easy, WORK ON THEM!! Not
just to become a member of a sorority, but for yourself.
Your education is MOST IMPORTANT. That is why
you are in college in the first place, at least that should be your reason.
EXERCISE STRICT DISCRETION.
Let the members of the organization know that you are interested, not the entire campus. Members
need to also know that you will keep internal business internal, not external. Also, sincerity, honesty, and respect for the
organization are also important when talking with members.
REMEMBER HAZING IS ILLEGAL.
No member of any Greek lettered organization has the right to subject you to any thing that you
will not allow, i.e. violations of your personal integrity/spirituality. You have the right to walk away from a threatening
situation and report it.
