Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Although Wesleyan College was the founding institution of both Alpha Delta Pi and Phi Mu, there is no longer Greek life on campus. According to Wesleyan's archives, sororities proved to be the source of conflict and elitism among the women on campus; therefore, they were banned in 1910. That being said, however, the sororities formed the basis for the new class system and many social traditions that continue today. A student automatically becomes a member of a sisterhood class as soon as she is accepted into the College. The four class mascots are the Golden Hearts, the Purple Knights, the Pirates, and the Green Knights. Each mascot remains with a class throughout the four years a student attends Wesleyan, and then they are passed down to the incoming freshmen after a class graduates. Thus, the spirit and compassion shared among the classes result in a unanimous sentiment called, "sisterhood."

Many Wesleyan women participate in sisterhood activities, yet a portion of the population chooses to remain uninvolved. Each and every activity is optional, creating an accepting environment among the women on campus.
