How to Write Your Letter to Your Sorority Sister

  • Begin the letter with a very special memory. It's important to begin your letter by stating how important your sister is to you. Open up to her, and let your heart show.
  • Follow it up with a personal message. This should relate to your relationship, perhaps a joke you share or a lesson she taught you.
  • Use expressive language. It's important to show your sorority sister how much she means to you, and will continue to mean to you even when you're apart. She should know how special she is to you.
  • Use specific examples. This should include moments when you felt truly lucky to be a part of her life. Describe memories that the two of you have shared, like the night she became a member or your little sister. Remember times that were special: like a vacation for spring break, when you stayed up all night studying, 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 important she is, how much she is cared for, and that you feel so lucky to have her. It's important to always 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 everything that she's done. Always write from the heart and express how much she means to you. Finish with an expression of your feelings.

  • "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

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 parties together. Being a member of a Greek organization means always having a study buddy, someone with whom to watch the big game, and an instant group of women to share your life with.

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.
