A sorority is a self-sustaining community of female students in a college or university.

Sororities are most commonly found in Canada and the United States. Members of a sorority form a close-knit group where they can socialize, foster companionship, engage in service to others, and participate in various campus activities.

The recruitment process takes place in the Fall or Spring cycle where prospective members visit different sorority houses and choose their home for the four years of college. College sororities have their own rules and policies and aim to uphold the principles of the concerned institution. The first sorority was founded in 1870 and since then, they have evolved into a haven for friendship, personal growth, and all-round development of the sorority sisters.
