We received a question from a parent wondering what sorority membership dues cover. Here is some general information about the kinds of things those dues support.
Each campus sorority will have slightly different membership dues based often on the size of their operations and the needs of the campus’ Greek community. Usually separate from fees associated with sorority housing, membership dues cover expenses related to chapter operations. Often this includes the sisterhood activities the chapter members participate in, some social activity costs, and the costs of putting on philanthropy events, service projects, and other activities. Most campus Fraternity and Sorority Life offices can provide a breakdown of chapter membership costs for you before recruitment begins to help you understand how much it costs, what payment options may be available, and how the money is spent. The Campus Panhellenic is also a good resource for understanding the costs of membership on your campus.
