Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is a sorority?
Sorority membership, which begins as a part of college life, provides a lifetime of learning and involvement. Sororities are sisterhood organizations with chapters at accredited colleges and universities. As extended family units, sororities offer warm, caring atmospheres which encourage individual development. Sororities promote sound scholarship, leadership ability, community outreach and life-long friendships. Sorority life will help you make the most of your college experience as you join together with women who share your interests and ideals.
Q: What is "rush"?
Rush is a brief period of time where potentially interested ladies can attend the social and informational events hosted by Lambda Delta Psi. During this time period, girls are able to meet with the currently active members of Lambda Delta Psi and learn more about the sororal life.
Q: I heard "rush" was expensive, is this true?
