MYTH: My daughter will be hazed if she joins a sorority.
FACT: Valparaiso University has a zero-tolerance policy regarding hazing. All sorority women are educated about the plague of hazing and sign an agreement stating their understanding of the University hazing policy, and all alleged violations are fully investigated. It is our priority to create a safe and healthy environment for all sorority women at Valparaiso University.
MYTH: If my daughter joins a sorority, she will spend all of her time partying.
FACT: While social interaction is part of sorority membership, most sorority members spend their time attending meetings, planning programs and events, and learning how to manage their time wisely with lifelong sisters and friends. Sorority membership offers leadership and personal development programming along with countless philanthropic and community service opportunities. In the 2015–2016 school year, sorority women contributed over 10,000 hours of community service and raised more than $44,000 for philanthropic organizations.
