Joining a sorority is a great way to meet new people and make lifelong friends. If you’ve just joined one and are looking for ways to bond with your new sisters, here are some ideas for fun activities that can help you get to know each other.
Playing games as a group is an excellent form of entertainment, and it’s an effortless way to spend time together. Field games like capture the flag are fun activities that will get members outdoors and active. Planning a day to play a team sport like WhirlyBall will allow sisters to get into teams with other members they may not know well. Playing a simple board game can also be a fun way to bring new friends together.
Gather members together and take a moment to share positivity with each other. This will be a chance for sisters to tell one another the positive things they see in their fellow members. Hearing good things about themselves and sharing positive things about others will allow new members to feel confidence and warm, fuzzy feelings. One way to organize this activity could be to have every sister write her name down on a piece of paper. Then, each name can be passed around and commented on by everyone.
A great bonding tool is to have sisters share stories with one another. Have all the members gather together for circle time so that sisters can take turns speaking. The stories can be personal ones about their lives, or something as simple as expressing a wish for the upcoming year. Telling stories is beneficial because it allows sisters to connect on a deeper level.
Pass on Traditions
Older sisters can bond with newcomers by taking the time to share some of the sorority’s songs, chants, and traditions. Traditions have brought sororities and chapters together throughout their history. Passing traditions along to the next generation of sisters will bring all the members together.
Participating in fun activities together is a great way for sorority sisters to bond. WhirlyBall is the perfect activity to do as a group. It’s a fun game that combines lacrosse, hockey, and basketball with bumper cars. At WhirlyBall Chicago, we host private parties, corporate parties, and more.
