What do sororities look for in new members? When sororities choose new members they look for many different characteristics. They look for women who possess different qualities, talents, interests, and abilities in order to form a diverse group in which each member benefits. Membership selection is not an easy task. It varies somewhat from sorority to sorority. These differences are based on national policies and chapter bylaws.. A sorority not only has to choose individual members, but an entire new member class! This new group must have leaders and followers, athletes and artists, scholars and musicians. Sororities strive to achieve a well-rounded and balanced group of women for their new member classes.
