"I joined a sorority because I wanted to meet women who were as academically driven as I was, so I would be held accountable for my grades. I also joined my chapter because I found that not only were these Greek women there to hold me accountable, but they were there to have fun and support me. - Dakota Metzger, Junior studying Music Education
