No matter what, they always had each other. How did people get through life without sisters?

How to Write Your Letter to Your Sorority Sister

  • Begin the letter with an extraordinary memory. It's important to begin your message by stating how vital your sister is to you. Open up to her, and let your heart show.
  • Follow it up with a personal message: Include a joke you share or a lesson that she taught you that is specific to your relationship
  • Use expressive language. It's important to show your sorority sister how much she means to you now and down the road, even when you're apart. She should know how special she is to you.
  • Use specific examples-- including moments when you felt fortunate to be a part of her life. Describe memories that the two of you have shared, like the night she became a member or the night you took her as your little sister. Remember special times-- like a tropical vacation for spring break, when you stayed up all night studying and blasting ridiculous music, or a night where you laughed until you cried.
  • Tell her how special she is. As young college women, we are often insecure and lonely. Tell her how talented she is, using examples of times she has wowed you. Write about how much you care for her, and that you feel so lucky to have her on your team. It's essential always to let your loved ones know just how much they mean to you.
  • Thank her specifically for all that she has done for you. Conclude the letter with thanking her for the kind things that she has done for you over the years. Finish with a heartfelt expression of your gratitude.
  • Always write from the heart and express yourself in specific examples of times that she made your life better.

Sorority Sister Quotations

While our words matter more than anything, sometimes an artist or a poet can say it even better. Sprinkle their words in your letter to drive your meaning home.

Demonstrate how you feel about her by using loving quotations such as:

  • "Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind." -Dr. Seuss
  • "Every sister has a fund of embarrassing stories that she can bring out at the most effective moment." - Pamela Dugdale
  • "We are sisters. We will always be sisters. Our differences will never go away, but neither, for me, will our song." - Elizabeth Fishel
  • "You should never look down on a sister unless it's to help her up."
  • "Always remember you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think."
  • “Because there's one thing stronger than magic: sisterhood." - Robin Benway
  • "From the outside looking in, you can never understand it. From the inside looking out, you can never explain it."
  • "If I paid for my friends, I didn't pay enough."
  • "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing's going to get better- it's not!" -The Lorax, Dr. Seuss

How to Write a Meaningful, Power Letter to Your Sorority Sister

Sorority life includes participating in sporting and philanthropic events, bonding over chick flicks, and attending all-night parties together. Being a member of a Greek organization means always having a study buddy or someone on their way to class. It means having an instant group of women to share your life with or a sister with whom to watch the big game.

Joining a sorority gives you a tie that binds you for life. It has dramatic moments, but more often than not, these are the women who pick up the pieces when things begin to shatter. Make sure that you tell them how much they mean to you. These letters are excellent to share over summer break or as a token of appreciation during the holiday season.

I hope you feel confident writing a meaningful letter to your sorority sister.
