Who are sororities for? Is it hard to get in and would a shy/introvert person be happy in one, generally speaking?
well i don't think sororities are aimed at a specific demographic, but i will say that it tends to favor white/wealthy people. it is hard to "get in," but that applies to most clubs at Penn, too (unfortunately). my roommate rushed her freshman year, and i remember she was gone from like 9am to 11pm for the first day b/c she had to go around all the sororities, talking to them, trying to get her name across. it is a tiring process, esp for introverts, b/c you're shivering in the cold while wearing heels and dresses.
it doesn't hurt to try though b/c it's good to go out of your comfort zone and try new things. you never know what'll happen unless you try. but if you know yourself well enough and know that you would not be happy there, then no need to go through that process.
