USI welcomes new sorority to campus

Posted: Updated:

The University of Southern Indiana is welcoming its first African American sorority on campus. 

Tau Rho was chartered over the weekend. It's a chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha, a well-known international service organization.

It's now one of five social sororities at USI, beginning with 12 members.

"We wanted to bring diversity to campus and let other people know that there's other sororities out there that you can join as well that can enhance your school life, your community service, networking for when you're done with school.  There's always, this is a lifelong sisterhood, so you always have these women to reach out to when school's over," president, Christina Pullings said. 

Pullings said they started working toward their charter last year and hope the sorority will be a part of USI for a long time.
