So you’ve been on your HBCU campus for a couple of months now, finally started to get in the rhythm of things, and maybe have even become interested in joining a sorority or fraternity on campus. Maybe you saw them step in the yard show or the step show, you went to an event and really enjoyed yourself, or you met some of them on the courtyard. Now what? HBCU Buzz has got you covered. Here’s what you need to know if you’re interested in joining a Divine Nine Sorority or Fraternity at an HBCU.
1. Do Your Research
Firstly, do your research and ask yourself why you want to join this particular sorority or fraternity. What is it about the organization that attracts you to it? Do their mission and values align with you or are you just going off of popularity and aesthetics alone? Make sure that you’re joining for the right reasons. All Divine Nine organizations have official websites with public information about their history and mission that will aid you in your decision to join. Looking at these websites and seeing what these organizations stand for is a great first step in deciding whether or not you want to seek membership.
