Life As an Alumna

Connecting with Alum:
Upon graduation, sorority involvement extends through alumnae membership. Alumnae members play significant roles, including writing recruitment recommendations for potential new members. To participate in this, one must be a member in good standing, keeping up with alumnae dues, typically ranging from $20 to $50 annually. Alumnae also receive benefits such as the sorority magazine and access to the members-only section of the sorority’s website.

Additionally, sororities have huge networks of alumnae volunteers who travel, at the sorority’s expense, all over the country meeting with chapters and helping them find ways to succeed. Just as local chapters have an officer structure, the inter/national organizations have officer structures. Every sorority has an alumna serving as its inter/national President, an officer who directs Recruitment for the entire sorority, one for Public Relations, one for Panhellenic Affairs, and the list goes on. Your journey of sorority membership that begins at Auburn can take you to a point where you are leading an organization of well over 100,000 members.

Serving Your Chapter:
Alumnae members also serve as advisors to undergraduate chapters, offering guidance in various areas such as recruitment and finance. Volunteering as a chapter advisor post-graduation is an excellent way to remain connected with the sorority and spend time with collegiate members.

From recruitment to finance, every aspect of sorority life has an alumna who works with that area of chapter life, providing deeper knowledge of policy as well as continuity beyond just one year. Alumnae members are expected to stay current on their alumnae dues, usually $20 to $50 per year, and they are also encouraged to actively participate in alumnae chapters and support the local undergraduate chapter(s) and the sorority’s chosen philanthropy.

Many sororities at Auburn have graduated women who have gone on to fill their sorority’s national presidency and other high posts. In fact, over the past twenty years, at least seven Auburn women have held an office with their sorority’s executive council, and three of them have served as President. Considering over 670 campuses produce sorority members each year, this statistic speaks well of our sorority community and the kind of women we graduate.
