Most Students in Sororities
Started as a way for female students to find community on male-dominated campuses, sororities still serve as a place for gender solidarity at many colleges. Sorority sisters often bond over shared cultural, social, academic, or religious interests, and may participate in service projects, fundraisers, and formal dances. Joining a sorority generally comes with a price tag, including recruitment fees, membership dues, and added costs for activities. Female students looking for a vibrant Greek life may want to consider one of the schools on this list, which had the highest percentages of female undergrads in sororities in fall 2011 among all schools ranked by U.S. News.
