Sororities: A Time for Self-Analysis

An article in The Dickinsonian entitled "Sororities: A Time for Self-Analysis" examines the role and possibility for continuance of sororities. According to the article, sorority women are just as likely to befriend women who are not sisters due to the living arrangements for female students at Dickinson. Sororities needed to work continuously in order to perpetuate the group; thus, they functioned more like social clubs and organizations on campus for which sisters attended meetings and functions and which competed with their academic and extra-curricular obligations for time and energy. The article urges sororities to seek "real values in their existence" and to create programs with life-long worth.
