We at SureSister.com have a Twitter account. Occasionally we will solicit the opinions of our followers on a variety of topics. Recently, we asked people to complete this sentence:
“Being a member of a sorority is important to me because _________________.”
We were astounded by the number of immediate responses to this Tweet – as well as the passion behind them – and thought they were worth sharing. The most common thought behind these responses of women from every Panhellenic group, from all around the country (and world), is … parties? Purses? You be the judge.
