July 15, 2019 / By Dorcia
Question: I have a question... So I'm thinking about joining a sorority. And Im a black girl but i got to a predominantly white school and i think there is a chapter on campus but i cant find out much info about the chapter rush and events. i have visited the chapter site and national site and have done the research. also i have talked with my cousin about sororities, i have been to probate shows and i know who the sorority girls are but im a bit nervous to go up to them and tslk because i dont wanna say anything disrespectful nor rude. i want to show inzterest but i dont know how to go about that? also does it matter what kind of community service you have? and how far back do they look at your community service? thank you.

The Greek chapters at your school will post the time/date/location of their first interest meeting (usually with about week or so's notice) and you can find out about the next steps for joining and their specific service requirements at the interest meeting. If the members of the sorority you've chosen aren't visibly promoting the interest meeting, you can try asking members of the D9 fraternities where to find the info or who to ask for it. Just be polite and courteous as you would with anyone; no one will be offended. You can also check with your school's Greek Council/cultural affairs/student activities office for extra info. Some schools don't offer a school chapter but the city they're located in may have a city chapter and you can join the city chapter if the school has none available. Good Luck! P.S. To Roger above D9 means Divine Nine. :)

I have no idea what "member of D9" is, but seriously speaking as long as you otherwise conform to the group, I think your skin color will not matter. This is 2009, and we are not so caught up on skin color as we used to be. I think you will not only be accepted, but will also find that white young people will welcome you with open arms and many will want to include in as a best friend. Finally, whatever you do, be true to yourself. If some expect you to change who you are just to belong to a group, then you might want to consider why it's so important to join.

hey i am in a sorority myself and its the best thing in the world. Dont be afraid to go up to them, multicultural sororities (african american, latin, etc) usually recruit in silence, so its up to you to go up to them, in some cases they go to certain events and they recruit, but they're not really out there when it comes to recruiting because when pledging time comes they go all out on it. My best advice is go talk to them, rush, and see if you like them. You might want to join now, but maybe once you're there you're not up for it anymore. Its up to how u feel. Also, they dont really look at your community service. As long as you have some, have ok or good grades (depending on the sorority), and they connect to you and you connect to them. Its not all about community service either, its also about sisterhood. So go and talk to them, dont be afraid, whats the worse they can say? in fact if they see that you are interested they might feel more inclined to offering you a bid. I hope this helped a little bit.

in basic terms because of fact something is traditionally black would not recommend that a individual of a various race can no longer connect. My mom is a Delta Sigma Theta and her sorority became a million/3 crammed with white women human beings.

Seth Originally Answered: Why does it seem like there are more white homosexuals than black?
Because most black people are incredibly homophobic. There are probably just as many gay blacks by percentage as gay whites but are hesitant to come out of the closet due to their homophobic black peers.
