Transcript For some young ladies on campus who wanted companionship and a unique college experience, the solution was to join one of the campus' many sororities. The unique and rewarding experience of being a part of these organizations was more than just a feeling of belonging to a group of great friends; it was about that group going out and accomplishing great things for the good of the community as a whole. The University of Houston had a very active Greek community during the 2001-2002 school year, led by numerous sororities on campus who worked very hard to lend a hand wherever it was needed on or off campus. Some sororities helped with fundraising and blood drives for the city of New York after the World Trade Center tragedy. Many of the sororities on campus, including Phi Mu, Delta Zeta, and Chi Omega provided valuable community service to the areas surrounding the University. Some volunteered their time to tutor students at local elementary and middle schools, while others helped out at local homeless shelters, nursing homes, and hospitals. UH's many sororities also helped coordinate various activities associated with Homecoming, the Frontier Fiesta, and other campus events. Sorority sisters did not just limit themselves to their group,but also joined other campus organizations, spreading their sense of community and friendship to other groups throughout the University. "It's a great chance to get out there and help people. It makes you feel really good afterwards," said Lisa Roberts, a member of Chi Omega. The UH Greek community as a whole benefited from the activism, the inspiration, and the generosity of the many sororities on campus. The bonds forged between sorority sisters were as strong as any family's, and lasted a lifetime. Story by Matthew E.
