The first fraternity, Alpha Kappa Lambda, was started at DSC earlier this year.
It’s now the women of Dalton State College turn to find who will have the honor of being the first sorority on campus.
Kennesaw, Ga. - Dalton State College has seen its fair share of changes over the last four years. The introduction of on campus housing, athletics, and now Greek life has made Dalton State College more than just a commuter college.
Earlier this year, 15 students signed into Alpha Kappa Lambda fraternity. These men all have a GPA of 2.5 or above, enrolled full – time, and are in good standing with faculty. That is just some of the qualifications that men have to meet to join the first fraternity on campus. The men take great pride in meeting these standards because it prevents the men who just want to join to party.
What is next?
It’s now the women of Dalton State College turn to find who will have the honor of being the first sorority on campus. The women have started an organization called, Girls Greek Life, to find the right sorority. The women have already started to form friendships that will last a lifetime while waiting for a chapter to be chartered and recruiting more women on campus to join the organization.
“Every time we get together, I make a new friend. It is truly a bond that will stick for the rest of our lives,” said Lauren Patrick.
It is important to all the women who are in the organization to find a sorority that can appeal to all the different type of women on the campus. The next step for this process is to have sororities visit the campus to see if they want to start a chapter at the college.
“I am looking for an organization that can apply to all types of girls,” said Heather Brewer.
Student Views on Greek Life
Student body on campus has been very supportive about the new additions to the student life department. Having Greek life added can only improve the atmosphere on campus. Students will be able to have a more traditional college experience like surrounding colleges.
“I think the most important thing is to not make a school focus on one activity. Arts, sports, and Greek life are just several opportunities for a student to grow as an individual,” said Jamie Smith.
We have to wait until the fall to see which sororities visit the campus to see if they want to expand to Dalton State College.
