McGill sororities bring out the best in all of their members, encouraging women to take up leadership positions, forge friendships and do important philanthropic work. I am so grateful to be a part of a community that champions women’s leadership and establishing spaces for women to thrive. I do not know where I would be as a McGill student without the support and love of my sisters. Please do not listen to any stereotypes of Greek life because at McGill the sororities are all truly amazing and will provide you not only with once-in-a-lifetime experiences, but also lifelong bonds. Signing up for recruitment will be the best decision you will ever make!
