Why did you join a UNK sorority?
As a first-generation student, I was looking for guidance on how to navigate my undergraduate career and I wanted to connect more with my culture. By joining Lambda Theta Nu Sorority, Inc., a multicultural sorority at UNK, I was able to surround myself with strong Latina women and build a strong support network that has helped me throughout the last four years.

What’s the best part of Fraternity and Sorority Life?
The friendships I’ve made have been the best part by far. I’ve made so many friends who continue to support me and push me to be the best version of myself, both academically and personally.

How has Fraternity and Sorority Life impacted your college career?
There are so many opportunities waiting for you within Fraternity and Sorority Life. Through all these leadership positions, I’ve become more confident with myself and learned how to communicate with other people. These are skills that I’ll be able to use beyond graduation.

Why should incoming students get involved with Fraternity and Sorority Life?
Connections, connections, connections! The network you are able to build through FSL is huge, whether it’s within your own organization or with the other Greek chapters. You never know if someone you meet may be able to provide you with your next big opportunity!

What’s something people would be surprised to know about UNK’s Fraternity and Sorority Life organizations?
UNK has a Multicultural Greek Council. The three organizations that make up this council have pillars and philanthropies just like the other two councils in FSL, and they also have cultural ties that bring their members together, such as stepping and strolling. Every year, MGC puts together a Stroll Off that’s open to the community to showcase each of the three organizations. I highly recommend everyone attend one if they can!
