What is greek week?
Greek week is usually sometime in April, when all the sorority's and fraternity's compete in a multitude of activities, such as football, basketball, swimming, can construction, pie eating, and Greek dance & sing.

What are Bigs and Littles?
The Big Sister is a very important part of the New Member education program.  The relationship between a Big Sister and a Little Sister often lasts much longer than the orientation period.  It becomes meaningful to them during both undergraduate and graduate years.  The Big Sister should not only see that her Little Sister is initiated, but that she also enjoys a strong collegiate experience and receives her degree. It is important for big sisters to be a positive influence on new members academically and socially.

Do you haze?
No, we do not believe in, approve or condone hazing in any form.

Do all the sorority's at Edinboro get along?
While we all represent different organizations, we have some of the same basic ideals- we are all women who have higher academic endeavors, believe strongly in philanthropy and want to make the best of our college experiences. Through these ideals, we are able to respect one another and work towards a constant state of Greek Unity.

What is Chapter?
A chapter is the division of the sorority, similar to a subtitle- We are the Iota Delta Chapter of Delta Zeta from Edinboro University. We also refer to our weekly 
meetings where we discuss what is happening within the sorority and organize upcoming events as Chapter; It is less of a mouthful for us to simply say Chapter as opposed to Iota Delta Chapter of Delta Zeta Meeting.
