After you graduate, sorority life is not over. It is the alumna members of sororities that write your recruitment recommendations. If you would like to write recommendations, too, you must be a member in good standing. Sorority alumnae are expected to stay current on their alumnae dues- usually $20 to $50 per year. Sorority alumnae receive the sorority magazine and have accounts in the members-only section of the sorority’s website.
When you graduate, you can find alumnae chapters of your sorority nationwide. If you move to a new town, you can find your sorority’s alumnae group and have an automatic group of friends to introduce you to life in that town. They can help you find a place to live, find a job, and even find a good place to get your haircut. Alumnae chapters usually meet once a month for dinners and fun activities. They also do things to help out the local undergraduate chapter(s) and the sorority’s chosen philanthropy.
It is also the alumnae members who work with the undergraduate chapters as advisors. 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. If you love your undergraduate experience, volunteering as a chapter advisor is a great way to stay in touch with your sorority as well as get to spend time with collegiate members. Wherever you live after graduation, you can search for new nearest local undergraduate chapter and see what help they need.
