Looking at Social Media

by: Wondering

Over the summer, while considering going through recruitment, I spent time looking at websites and social media for sororities here. I didn't see many black women at all. Now that school and recruitment will be starting, I am still considering going through recruitment. Am I wasting my time? I am from out of state and I realize that the Black population here is small, but will it keep me from getting into a house? P.S. My grades are outstanding, I was president of my senior class, on prom court and have won music awards. My family is encouraging me to try, but I don't want to let them down.

So no one is going to encourage this girl? Thanks for your honesty. I think she has her answer.

You should definitely still go through recruitment. Many chapters have DEI committees and are working on their diversity initiatives. Please go through recruitment and give it a try!

This makes me sad. It's 2023. They should have worked on their DEI initiatives 25 years ago.

I see women of color in KD. Look closer.

There is no harm in going through recruitment and ultimately deciding for yourself if you feel that the phc community is for you! UofO does have a predominantly white student body which is reflected in the sororities but I would say that the percent of poc in Greek life accurately reflects the percent of the school as a whole. As a poc in a sorority, I can definitely say there is a home for anyone and sometimes chapters are just working with the pictures girls submit for social media and it might not reflect the full diversity of that chapter!
