A legacy is typically a sister, daughter, or granddaughter of a
sorority alumna. However, each chapter has different requirements for considering a potential new member a legacy. Many national organizations have made changes to their legacy policies so we encourage you to visit your national organization to learn more about their policy.
No, no one is ever guaranteed a bid to a sorority. Each sorority has different policies on legacies. Ultimately, the individual potential new member’s personality, character, resume, grades, etc., are the main determining factors for membership selection.
