Women’s Sororities are a positive part of the Franklin & Marshall experience. It's a life-long experience that is committed to providing opportunities for F&M Women who want to develop their greatest potential as students and as women. Sororities today are far more than just social organizations; they facilitate growth and development of their members and contribute much to the community. Use your first semester at F&M to determine for yourself if you would like to become a part of the F&M Sorority Life. Please know, however, that affiliation with a sorority is not a prerequisite for an active and successful college experience. Joining a women's fraternity or sorority, therefore, should be an individual decision, one which you make for yourself, not for your mother or your sister or best friend. Whether you join a sorority or not, Formal or Informal membership opportunities will be a time for making new friends and beginning a new and exciting part of your life. To learn more about our desire to advance sorority by tapping the collective potential, please take a moment to listen to our NPC Podcast and also share our new video “Our Potential. Your Move.”

Franklin & Marshall College Philosophy Regarding Hazing
We care about the health, safety, dignity, success, and emotional and psychological well-being of students, about the ability of our student organizations & teams to be successful, about the health of our College community, and about advancing the mission of the institution. We take issue with any situations that students experience while joining teams, clubs, and organizations that put these priorities at risk.
Hazing does not align with the F&M institutional mission as described below:
“...to teach them...to think critically...”
“...to instill in them the capacity for both independent and collaborative action...”
“...to foster in its students qualities of...character...”
“...that they may...contribute meaningfully to their occupations, their communities, and the world.”
Hazing is inconsistent and violates the F&M student code of conduct, specifically: Conduct which is unbecoming of a Franklin & Marshall student, defined as:
“...physical or verbal abuse or assault; threats; intimidation; harassment; coercion; and other conduct that threatens, instills fear, or infringes upon the rights, dignity, and integrity of any person.”
