Sorority 101 Success!

Sorority 101 was a great event this year! High School students and their parents joined us in April to learn about recruitment and sorority life from sorority alumnae.

Vendors from the Birmingham area were onsite to showcase clothing and accessories perfect for recruitment season! Several very generous vendors also provided door prizes for attendees.

College Panhellenic Councils from several schools in Alabama attended to answer questions regarding recruitment at those specific schools.

Thank you to our attendees, Samford University for hosting, our vendors, the College Panhellenic Councils, our fabulous speakers, and all of our volunteers for making this a successful event!
