    I am so glad this is mentioned as an oxymoron, because it TOTALLY IS! Students in sororities keep telling themselves that this is helping them academically because they are surrounded by other students who also care about their education. But everyone knows that sororities are nothing more than social groups that girls travel in when they are too insecure to go to a party and get drunk alone. They are nothing more than a social contest and I am so glad that it has been recognized as one!

    It is proven that students in greek letter organizations have a higher GPA than those who aren’t…and you HAVE to have a certain GPA to join and have to keep a certain GPA to stay in the organization. Students in sororities don’t “keep telling themselves that this is helping them academically…” It DOES help you academically. Don’t be jealous just because you aren’t fortunate enough to be apart of the Sisterhood. OR that you can’t party, look good, AND have great grades. :)

    how is this an oxymoron..? a sorority is not the opposite of academic. maybe more like academic dimwit. a sorority is a sisterhood. clearly, this person is suggesting that sororities are unacademic?

    Aren’t “fortunate” enough. Get over yourself and pay attention to what you are typing. Obviously greek life students are going to have higher GPA’s if there is a minimum requirement to join. You stated a fact that is irrelevant. You may as well say Harvard students have higher GPA’s than community college students. DUH! You must of been a tri-delt, stuck up and stupid.

    Soriority: A chiefly social organization of women students at a college or university, usually designated by Greek letters.

    Academia: The community of students and scholars engaged in higher education and research.

    In the end: A community of women students at a college or university, in higher education and research.

    OK…. Weird. Just saying.

    My sorority’s GPA is above the all women’s average at my university. Yes, we are a social sorority but we take pride in our grades and philanthropy as well.
