What is the preferred GPA for most sororities? Is it possible for me to get a bid as an incoming freshman with a 3.2 cumulative GPA?

There is no preferred GPA for most sororities. Each sorority has its own national minimum; however many individual chapters have requirements well above this minimum.

Whether or not you can get into a sorority with a 3.2 GPA depends on where you are going to college. At some schools, this is a decent GPA where it won't be a problem; at others it will be seen as a low GPA. Look online. Some schools publish their incoming member's cumulative GPAs. That can provide a baseline for you.

Hi i had a quick question. i am a new member of a sorority and i am having a few issues. i did not pref this sorority (it was my second choice), on my campus we are looked down on but nationally it is a very well respected one. i was wondering if there is any way to cope with these stereotypes, i dont feel like i get along well with my other sisters quite yet and sometimes i feel embarrassed to wear my letters. is there anyway (as a new member) that i could help mend our reputation?

Yes. Be the sorority woman you want your chapter to be. Always look good in (and not in) your letters, be involved on campus, be seen having fun, etc. Bad (or maybe worse, nonexistent) reputations can be slow to change, but once people start saying "those Betas are mostly dorks, but Suzie Beta is great!" then "I heard those Betas aren't great, but Suzie and Sarah Beta are doing great on the campus board" then "those Betas are really coming up in the world." Don't let other people's limited impression of you diminish this great group in your eyes. And if they chose you, they MUST be awesome, right?

I am not certain, but I believe that no "first year" (incoming freshman, transfers etc.) live in any GLO houses their first semester (maybe not at all for the first year). So you should contact UA regarding housing now.

Regardless, your best bet is to contact Alabama Housing directly and ask them your questions about student housing.
You will not be allowed to live in the house when you pledge at Alabama. Depending on your class, you may end up not living in at all. So, there is nothing to worry about your first year. it will all depend on your particular chapter's rules as to when you would be allowed to live in. With so many members and so few rooms, most have a priority plan for who gets the privilege of living in. And if you sign up for campus meal plan, it will transfer to the sorority if you join one.
