Yes, but keep in mind there are different kinds of partying! NPC social sororities are social organizations. So by nature there will be sisterhood socials, greek parties, date functions, fraternity parties, exchanges, mixers, formals and more… Drinking is not involved in all of them. And if drinking is part of the party, you don’t have to personally partake.
Many sisters are non-drinkers. Consuming alcohol and getting wasted is not required. If you don’t want to feel left out, it would be wise to attend at least some of the social functions that your chapter participates in. It’s Ok to focus more on philanthropy or academic achievement, but if you want some “fun times” with your sisters, it’s healthy to hang out with them occasionally. That doesn’t mean getting black-out drunk. Sorority socializing can be all about laughter, acting crazy, being goofy and enjoying a relaxed night out with your sisters. It’s OK to let your hair down.
Bottom line ~ to join a social sorority, I think you need a minimum interest in kicking back with your chapter now and then. If you hate to socialize, and prefer to be alone, then greek life may be difficult for you. Being sorority social does not mean drinking or drugs every night. But it does mean a desire to interact with friends at greek events. The good news is, YOU can define your own ‘style’ of partying and still be an active sorority sister. xoxo ;)
