Networking with sorority sisters
I was fortunate to pledge a wonderful sorority while on campus and I am now completing my degree online in an apartment far from campus with a different school. What is the best way to stay active as an alum and maintain my sorority contacts? #July20 #college-life #greekalum
If you want to stay in touch with the chapter of your sorority at your school in a more formal capacity, you can become a chapter advisor. Many chapters need advisors for things like honor board, philanthropy/fundraising, member education, recruitment, and more. I think the best way to find out about these opportunities is to contact your sorority’s national headquarters. Also note that in my experience, these positions are volunteer-based and can often be remote.
If you are looking to stay active as an alum of your school in general, I would recommend getting in touch with alumni relations. They are likely looking for alum to serve as guest speakers, mentors, donors, etc. I am personally on my school’s alumni email list, and I really enjoy finding out about opportunities to volunteer as well as regional alumni events.
