Sorority Websites
At times I do research for articles about Greek life on a variety of campuses. It is surprising how many of the websites are out of date. Could anyone post a link to some excellent chapter sites?

Here's some for AOII - I looked up our biggest southern chapters, because I know they are all competitive and would most likely have up to date websites, then threw in Lehigh since my alum friend is their adviser and I knew it would be current. :)

One thing she found is that chapters are relying on Tumblr more than websites, she had a really hard time convincing the chapter that they should keep their website current since only "old people" go to websites. Harrumph.

Tri Sigma has gone the way of the template recently.

The most regularly updated sorority social media/online outlet these days is the FB or Instagram.

I used to do website evaluations for our group.
It was a frustrating experience! I saw fabulous websites which were pretty much professionally done. I saw crappy awful websites. What happens is some smart cookie in the chapter builds a website. The next webmaster starts off updating, gets busy and forgets to finish. The next webmaster didn't get the password passed down, or forgets it, and it languishes for a year or two. Then the cycle starts again...BUT in the meantime somebody's enamored of Facebook, and then Tumblr, and then Instagram, and the good stuff goes there.

All of it - website PLUS Facebook PLUS Tumblr PLUS Instagram PLUS the Next Big Thing could be SO useful - as a communication device, as a marketing tool - except these things are set up and maintained by volunteers. If you get a good one, the next one may not be as skilled, or care. If you get a bad one, everybody says "bless hear heart, they had to give her an office" and just ignores it - life moves fast, and who has time to update a site when it's time for midterms?

You can get to the websites of all the IU sororities here. Most of them have templated layouts, but almost all of them are up-to-date.
