the more you know

from the UW student organization entry about social fraternities and sororities:

"Social fraternities and sororities offer membership to students without regard to a field of study or class year, and typically have a minimum grade requirement. The term "social" in social fraternity and social sorority refers to social development. The original intent of these organizations when they began in the 18th Century was to assist students to become "socialized," that is, directed, with proper consideration of one's future responsibilities as a citizen in society. The individual and the organization's members base membership on mutual choice. Social fraternities and sororities are self-governing and self-supporting organizations."
