Greek Life in Residence Halls
Greek Life in the Residence Halls
South Proper, located in South Halls, is currently home to 19 of Penn State's sororities. Sophomores are encouraged to apply to join a housing assignment.
Chapter members live on campus in this sorority village, where they share a floor with their sisters and assist in fostering a strong Greek community. Each sorority has access to a sorority suite located on each floor, complete with a full kitchen, dining and living area, and individualized decor selected by each chapter. In addition to the sororities, each of these buildings is also home to one resident assistant, who is responsible for maintaining a safe and healthy environment and works to build relationships with and within chapters. The Sorority Assistant works closely with each chapter's sorority assistant, who is one member of each sorority hired by Residence Life to help build communication, community and relationships. This sister works as a resource and liaison to the resident assistant to help accomplish shared goals.
In addition to the sorority floors and units, each building features a meeting room complete with audio and video equipment. The meeting rooms hold up to 225 students. The buildings also provide several study spaces for residents and convenient access to the Fraternity and Sorority Life office located in the HUB-Robeson Center.
The South Proper Sorority Village encourages collaboration, communication, and positive interaction between all chapters and Residence Life.
