Parents Frequently Asked Questions
When can I join a sorority? A girl is allowed to join a sorority if she has at least a 2.5 cumulative GPA. First-year students are allowed to join their first semester if they have at least a 3.2 college GPA and a copy of their high school transcript.
How will I know which group is right for me? Each sorority has its own creed and values that we live by. After going around to each organization, women are able to see which organization is the best fit and home to join. Even if you don't end up in the same organization as your friends, you will still be able to have connections across all of Greek Life.
Can I join a sorority if I'm going to be on a sports team or other organization? Yes! We have some sisters that are on sports teams also. Sports practices and games are always a priority and many of our sisters love to go to the games in support. Many of our sisters are also members or leaders of other campus organizations.
What is the new member process like? Each organization is different. With Alpha Sigma Tau, there is a six week new member process. Throughout these six weeks, new members will learn everything about the sorority, including the Creed, songs, founding sisters, and the history of Alpha Sigma Tau.
How does housing work? At Frostburg State University we do not have sorority houses. Many of our sisters become great friends and end up moving into smaller houses together.
Should I be worried about hazing? Hazing is something that the sororities at Frostburg take very seriously. All new members are required to attend an anti-hazing seminar before getting initiated. If any sister has any concerns about suspected hazing, she is encouraged to contact 1-888-NOT-HAZE to anonymously report.
