Get Involved at TCU

You’re in a sorority. Now what? Get Involved. You won’t regret it.
A great deal of the college experience is meeting people outside of your sorority and getting involved in things you are passionate about. Part of our Panhellenic community’s greatness is that our women are some of the most involved women on campus. Below is a list of some of the things our women are involved in:
  • Did you LOVE Frog Camp? Frog Camp facilitator applications go out second semester.
  • Get connected with our religious organizations on campus… StuMo, KLife, YoungLife and others!
  • Join Eta Iota Sigma (HIS). HIS is a Christian sorority at TCU that seeks to establish a sisterhood among women who seek to nourish their bond with the Lord Jesus Christ. You can be a part of a Panhellenic sorority and HIS! 
  • Join a club or fraternity for your major: there’s one for Nursing, Business, Education, Spanish, Advertising and so many more!
  • Love the frogs? Apply to be a TCU athletics ambassador or a TCU Ranger. 
  • Support your frogs by becoming a cheerleader or a showgirl!
  • There’s always a way to stay in shape…join club sports or intramural sports through your sorority.
  • We love our ROTC girls… Air Force or Army!
  • Be philanthropic: Dance Marathon, Up Til Dawn, volunteer at the Net. There are so many options! There’s also a fraternity for that… Alpha Phi Omega Service Fraternity
  • Write for the Skiff. Or the Odyssey. Or TCU 360. 
  • Intern on campus. The different colleges and departments are always looking for help. Check out Frog Jobs for these internships or for other great work opportunities!
  • Tutor others in your area of expertise. Become a TA for a class you loved and excelled in!
  • Look into being a Resident Assistant for next year. 

As you can see, there’s lots to do in many areas of interest on campus. Not only is it fun, but you will meet lots of awesome people.
