i've met frat that are Asian, Hispanic, Middle Eastern, Caribbean Indian, White, whatever...they went with the org that they felt they best identified with, and it just so happened to be...PHI BETA SIGMA FRATERNITY, INCORPORATED!!! and i've also met tha same for ZETA PHI BETA SORORITY, INCORPORATED!!! but yeah, do you're research, and decide which org you best fit...not based on stereotype, but on principles and the activities they are doin on campus and in the community. also get to know they brothers in the chapter of the org on your campus, if you dont already know them.

Or at least is makes you wonder what the connection to the college was. I too think it's interesting when people go to colleges where they will be an extreme racial or ethnic minority (Cool interesting, not freak show interesting). With PWIs (which I'm guessing is Predominantly White Institution, right?), sometimes you might imagine that people go because it's the big state school or it's public and cheap. Often when you talk about HBCs, the tradition that attracts someone has got to be different than that, since often they are smaller, private, and maybe not so cheap, and especially for undergraduate school, I am curious about the particular elements that drew someone in.

have you considered multicultural organizations? i know that at my school, which is mixed, i was interested in joining a sorority, but i'm not "white" enough for mainstream, "black" enough for divine nine, or "latina" enough for a latin org. then i found Lambda Psi Delta Sorority Incorporated, which is multicultural, and haven't looked back! it's been great and i would highly reccomend checking out what your campus has to offer. or even do your research and found a chapter if there aren't any. that's what we're doing!

Just join an organization that you are interested in WORKING YOUR ASS OFF in. You'll be fine.

YES.

When I was in HS all I wanted to do was get as far away as possible and out from under my parents wings (I'm an only child). I considered Catholic U in DC even but decided I'd had enough of Catholic schools. I ended up in St Louis.

What equates to "white, black, and latino enough?" Just curious.

i, of course, meant this personally, not generally. but what i was referring to, especially on my campus, is the seperation that occurs. in order to feel comfortable in a white sorority here i have to be comfortable going to "old south" confederate balls, or having sisters who are openly racist. the divine nine sororities here are so used to being treated with prejudice that unless i was a "home girl" with no white roots whatsoever i'm looked at as just another white girl trying to be black. which is not the case. as far as latina sororities, there aren't any here, so i base this only on what i've heard and read, but i'm not interested in learning to speak spanish or trying to pretend their values are similar to mine, because they aren't. i find i'm most comfortable representing a sorority that openly embraces its sorors' cultural differences.

I applied for a scholarship but have not found out if I have recieved it yet. The school is closer to my work than any other college that offers Engineering. The town has more to offer than other cities within a couple of hours. My sick mother is also close by. The school has a lot of programs and new facilities with a good boom going on right now. I firugred what the heck go for it. The fact I am white and it is a HBCU doesnt bother me. I am just interested on how to join a NPHC frat. I appreciate all the info offered. I have already read The Divine Nine. I will read the other books cited earlier. Race doesnt bother me. I was just curious on how common non African American people join the NPHC. Now that I have recieved all the input I will put it to work and do my best. I hope to offer all I have to the one I choose. I believe as long as I put my best foot forward and be myself I will be fine. Thanks Again!!!

Although she was an honorary member, Eleanor Roosevelt, was one of more famous members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.

Of course we can go into a lot of demeaning history, but I have seen plenty of members that are obviously caucasian women who joined my Sorority in the 60's and beyond.

And since they are attending the plenary sessions of the biennal meetings we have and have "delegate badges", then I gather they have been paying for their dues to be active in a graduate chapter...

Like my soror said, if you are about public service and helping people, then you will be fine.

Like I tell my chapter sorors now, can homegirl sell at banquet table? Hayle, if I am going to be assessed $$$$ to be in my chapter and have to pay it to be a validated member, then an interested member should do the same!
