Specific costs, or dues, vary by chapter. Dues for the first semester after joining a sorority are higher than they will be in the future, since they must accommodate for various costs such as new member and initiation fees. During the first semester, new member dues range from $680 - 750. After the first semester, dues range from $370 - 540 for initiated members. While many women in our community work to pay the dues themselves, EPC recognizes that this may not be possible and has created a scholarship to help women finance their Panhellenic experience. Partial scholarships are awarded after initiation into the chapter, and are evaluated on a semester basis. Please note that scholarships are awarded by application and are not guaranteed to recipients in subsequent semesters. Individual chapters also offer their own scholarships in conjunction with their respective national organizations. Women should not solely depend on the prospect of the scholarship when deciding to go through recruitment.
Each chapter has their own sorority lodge, which has 24 beds. The lodges are configured into four-person suites, each with a bathroom. After you are initiated, you will have the opportunity to apply to live in the lodge for the semester following your initiation. The lodges do not have their own meal plan or chef. The cost of living in a lodge is the same as any other on-campus double room.
EPC, in conjunction with Emory University, has a zero-tolerance hazing policy. Before receiving a bid from any chapter, each PNM must sign Emory's hazing policy, which binds them to report and intervene in any and all situations of hazing. Hazing violations are processed through the Office of Student Conduct.
