Greek life is a huge part of Southern college culture, and joining a sorority is often an exciting generational tradition. Sororities provide young women with lifelong bonds and a sense of community while attending university, but joining a Greek organization can come with a hefty price tag! Here’s how much you can expect to pay for joining a sisterhood. Students hoping to join a sorority pay a recruitment participation fee. For example, this costs $60 at Elon University in North Carolina and $80 at Auburn University in Alabama. The ladies selected to join pay annual dues. Membership fees vary depending on the scale of the college’s Greek life; this can range from $500 to $2,300! Of course, sorority girls love to represent their house by sporting organizational garb. Purchasing letter attire such as sweatshirts or T-shirts, recruitment outfits, formal dresses, Big/Little gifts and pins can add a minimum of $500 to the yearly bill. Future sorority girls can expect to pay a total ranging from $3,000 to $17,000 during college! Even though the cost is high, gaining lifelong sisters is priceless.
