Even if it doesn't work out for you, this really is an "only in America" type of experience, so it will be a win regardless. And if you have a few minutes to surf online, you might look to see if any of the chapters at W&M have alumnae associations in London, beyond Kappa which was shared above. If you can express interest in lifetime membership, that may help you a bit. But admittedly, the college girls don't know much about sorority membership after college It's big and fulfilling and lasts WAY longer than your time in college. Just a thought.

Like us, for example?

Nice to see you back, DubaiSis! Don't be a stranger!

Fizzan, I'm glad you had fun during the first round, and I'm glad to hear you decided to participate! Best of luck to you -- please keep us posted!

Thanks. I've had a bit going on in my life. I'm hosting an event for women who used to live overseas but who have now repatriated back to the US. It's a beast of a project but hopefully will end up fun and successful. Interested? www.fausa.org.

Thank you for all of the help guys - I've definitely had a lot of great conversations about how sorority membership is for life, and that seems to be something that all of the sororities really support!

I was invited back to five houses out of a maximum six for sisterhood day yesterday, so fingers crossed that I'm going back for pref night today!

I have two favourites at the moment, but I liked all the houses I went back to yesterday, so I"m keeping an open mind

I am so thrilled for you and don't know what else to say except that.

I'm happy to say that I just received a bid to Kappa Delta!

I fell in love with them from the moment I walked into the house, and I can't wait to get involved

Congrats!!! I'm an advisor to a different group at W&M and KD is wonderful here. I'm so glad you found a home.

W&M in general is lovely - I hope you have a great year here!
