Sorority chapters come together for first Panhellenic Sisterhood event
Sorority women from different chapters came together to make cards, learn about self-defense and bond as a community of Panhellenic women during the first-ever Panhellenic Sisterhood event on Nov. 19.
The event included various stations focused on different Panhellenic community values such as service, leadership and sisterhood.
Tori Mock, vice president of events for Central Michigan University's Panhellenic Council, came up with the idea for the event because she thinks it's important for sorority women to have positive relationships with women in other chapters.
"It’s important to have connections with different chapters because you never know who you might find in another chapter who could become your next best friend," Mock said.
To Mock, sisterhood means having a support system.
“Sisterhood to me is always having someone there for you no matter what," Mock said. "If it’s 2 a.m. and you’re balling your eyes out, they’re always going to be there for you no matter what it is. You failed an exam, they’re going to tell you it’s OK. You have your family troubles, they’re right there for you."
The event was the first of its kind at CMU.
