The building of lifelong relationships in an organization and through the community.
Joining a sorority or fraternity provides members an opportunity to foster lifelong friendships and countless memories through a "home away from home" environment. Chapters host siblinghood and social events for members in the chapter to bond and build relationships as members. Throughout the year chapters participate in a variety of events on campus and host events between chapters to build relationships and get to know members of other organizations in the sorority and fraternity community. All of these events help members build friendships and relationships that extend beyond college and serve as a foundation and network for the rest of their life. Relationships continue to be fostered and created following graudating because of opportunuties provided to alumni members of sororities and fraternities.
