Yes they do. I love the Reds.

Emz817, to be honest it varies for every sorority. The cheapest can be $750 per semester to close to $2500 per semester. That is still not factoring in merchandise and apparell, sorority housing, philanthropy, etc. Also, certian sororities nation's charge you for initiation membership which could be $100 to $200 added to the sorority memberships.
But don't let these numbers scare you. Each sorority has a monthly payment plan that works wonders on a college students budget. I've been with my sorority for 4 years, and I've been on the payment plan several times. I never felt that it was too large of a financial commitment when it was all broken up. I loved the experience. It was totally worth, and so excited to be an alumni with my sisters.
How much was your monthly payment? I want to join a sorority, but I'm a bit concerned about the cost... I don't have much extra money laying around so I'll have to either take out a bigger loan or work full time to pay it :S
Well when I was a freshmen my first semester was like $750. My second semester dropped to $550 when I became active member. Then this past year, it increased to $750 because of the economy. So, I pay roughly $165 a month, which I broke down to $25-30 weekly since I worked a lot. It is a finiancial commitment. But I didn't feel that I had work everyday to pay towards it. Plus you can push the payment plan into the summer to help you out more

One of the first things that you'll notice when you step foot on KU's campus is the abundance of young people sporting T-shirts with funny-looking, multi-colored letters on the front. Yes, Greek life is certainly a presence at KU. Greeks control student government and many leadership positions. It is important to note that some students at Kentucky that go Greek do so at the demand of their parents or because they are looking for a way to make friends quickly and have people to party with. Most students at UK are not Greek and enjoy mingling with Greeks and non-Greeks while on campus. Some say that Greeks are a dying breed at UK, especially after they have completed their freshman year rush; few people that rush stay in it for more than two years.
If you are interested in Greek life or wish to run for student government, an institution that is completely controlled by Greeks, you'll be obligated to drop at least a few hundred dollars each semester for membership fees-not to mention all the dough you'll be spending to keep up with the latest in fasion and designer garments. Rush is the first week of school, and you'll have made hundreds of friends by the end of the week (rush or not).
