I’m Black && Not In A NPHC Sorority | Greek Life

Sigma Lambda Gamma National Sorority, Inc.

I’m in a sorority and I love it,

My experience in my sorority was overwhelmingly positive. I made a lot of great memories there and I met a lot of wonderful people. Sororities aren’t fairytales one day we love each other the next we want to punch each other in the face thats why its called a sisterhood. If anyone ever tells you that they all get along and they all love each other its a lie. Sisters fuss, fight, and at the end of the day they make up. Thats why a sisterhood really is. Taking the good with the bad like you would say.

Since high school I always knew that I wanted to join a sorority. Coming to college I had a list of things that I wanted to do and that was probably on the very top of my list. I looked into a lot of sororities before I finally choose The One . I am a member of Sigma Lambda Gamma National Sorority, Inc. We go by SLG or Gamma. Sigma Lambda Gamma is a multicultural sorority. We were founded on April 9th, 1990. We are officially 25 years old and so damn proud of it. I rushed in the spring of 2014 and became a member in the April 2014. I had 2 line sisters that I gained while going through the journey. I have officially been a Gamma for a year and it has been worth all the tears, long nights, fry street turn ups, and even more. I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything. Being in a sorority is probably one of the high lights of my life. I’ve gained so much from being in a sorority. I have the most amazing sisters. I’ve found the Godmother of my children’s and my future bridesmaids. I encourage anyone who is thinking about Greek life to go ahead and try it out. You never know what you can gain from it. I know there are a lot of stereotypes about Greek life and sororities but do one thing I can tell you is to do your research.
