An open sorority is a sorority that is chartered at one particular University. In this case, CSULA. However, membership is not restricted to one specific school. We welcome girls from any four year Universities and junior colleges, as well.
How much does the sorority cost?
There are financial responsibilities that come with joining any club or organization. We have quarterly dues and other expenses. Throughout the year, we will have fundraising events that help lower those costs. Ultimately, what you put into the sorority is what you get out. So it’s up to you and your pledge class to decide how much you want to spend.
Do I have to go to all of the events?
The rush events are not mandatory. However, it is highly recommended that you attend as many as you can. This is a way to become better acquainted with the fellow rushees and the sisters of Kappa Zeta Phi. This will also help us get to know you better. Also, it can help you obtain a better understanding of the sorority and aid you in deciding whether or not this sorority is fit or you.
Is it difficult for open sororities to get to know each other better since everyone goes to different schools?
The sisters of Kappa Zeta Phi do not find it difficult to get to know each other because we often carpool to the many events that take place every week. In addition, we have exclusive sisterhood events that bring us closer together and give us time to bond and form an everlasting sisterhood.
If I decide to pledge, what is expected out of me?
We expect effort, cooperation, respect, dedication, and enthusiasm as all these traits will benefit you in building unity within your pledge sisters. Since academics are important, we also expect you to have at least a 2.0 g.p.a. There are a certain amount of study hours you do.
How much time does the sorority take?
The sorority takes a lot of time, hard work, and dedication but you will learn how to manage your time efficiently as the semester goes on. The minimum amount of time is 2 hours but the more time you spend with your pledge sisters and the sorority, the stronger your bond becomes which will result in more rewarding experiences.
