Are sororities expensive?

There are not-so-tiny fines of upwards $100 for each breaking of a fraternity or sorority rule. Regular chapter membership dues, which can certainly also add up, are other hidden costs that many do not think about. These regular dues can set you back between $20 to more than $200 per month and up to $3000 per semester.

Can you join a sorority without going to college?

No. If that college/university doesn't have a chapter or the chapter is inactive, you cannot go to another chapter to seek membership. However, you may seek membership on the alumnae level upon receipt of your Baccalaureate degree.

Should I join a sorority if I don't drink?

You definitely don't have to be a party girl to be in a sorority. It's not weird at all if you don't want to drink. Most people won't even notice. If they do question why you aren't drinking and you just say that you're not really big into drinking, they'll respect your decision.
