Zeta Mu Phi - Penn State Students Establish First-Ever Virtual Sorority

https://onwardstate.com/2020/10/02/p...wGl8USDj_d4QoQ

Quote:
Now that Zoom happy hours and niche PowerPoint nights have become routine, virtual interaction has transformed into the new norm. After coming to this realization, a group of Penn State students observed the extreme disconnect between online students and Greek Life.

In an effort to make sisterhood accessible to many more women, Zeta Mu Phi, the world’s first-ever virtual sorority, is being offered exclusively at Penn State.

In the summer of 2019, Jona Hall, Zeta Mu Phi’s founder and a Penn State World Campus student, said she couldn’t shake the idea that mothers, servicewomen, full-time workers, online, and World Campus students were working tirelessly to obtain their degrees without the chance to experience the social and philanthropic dynamics of traditional Greek Life.

Fast-forward to fall 2020, Hall has made her mission a reality, as Zeta Mu Phi is officially recognized by Penn State World Campus as a service sorority and has a sisterhood of 25 women. In addition to full-time workers, mothers, and servicewomen, there are sisters in the Middle East, Illinois, and Oregon.

Remember all of the questions we used to get about whether there were online chapters for students attending online classes at the University of Phoenix?

I think SKEPi should be the land chapter version of Gamma Chi.
