As cultural awareness increases across campus, Greek Life has specifically been affected. Panhellenic President, Joella D’Ambrosia, comments on what the fraternal community is doing to increase diversity.

“See, we get a lot of crap as sorority women for ‘all looking the same’ and ‘being the same color’.  So all the sororities came together and decided to be more color-inclusive! We are super excited to announce that every sorority is doubling the color selections on their spring PR shirts!”

Before the new inclusivity initiative, sororities typically offered shirts in coral, seafoam, navy, and sometimes a shade of lavender. Now, the girls have the option of dressing in all sorts of colors.

“We take diversity very seriously here on sorority row. As a matter of fact, we have a blonde vs. brunette ratio that has to be met. If a chapter has too many of one hair color, then we require girls to dye their hair to ensure equal representation,” D’Ambrosia said. “Clearly, increasing the variety of shirt colors isn’t our first proposal to diversify.”

Yes, you have met her, and yes, she knows your friend so and so from that thing that one time. She has handed you fliers, she has yelled at you from her banner holding post, your friend introduced her to you that one time in the MSC, you are friends on Facebook, and she is in at least two of your GroupMe’s. You hate her for always looking like she just worked out, but in reality she just has to be constantly maintaining a comfortable jog to get to her next meeting on time. We have never actually seen her in person, but sometimes she emails us good jokes, so we let her stay affiliated.
