- Enduring friendships and alumni contacts: Being a sister does not stop at graduation. When someone joins, they are a Hermana Por Vida/Sister for Life.

- Developing a sense of civic, social and cultural responsibility: Believing in giving back to the community, your child will have opportunities to participate in social justice issue and share cultural experiences with not only their University community but the greater community as a whole.
- It is fun: The most immediate benefit for your student is all the activities and events sponsored by their individual entity and their university greek system as a whole. Whether it is an individual entity event, another university organization’s event or a National Event, your student will be surrounded by a group of students who know how to enjoy themselves responsibly and create friendships that will last a lifetime.
Be supportive, and learn as much as you can by asking your student questions before they join. Encourage your student to learn about all the opportunities at their university. In addition, allow your student to make their own choice (especially if you yourself are Greek). Your support should not end after the Intake period but continue throughout your student’s years in school. Once your student joins Sigma Lambda Gamma National Sorority, Inc., take advantage of any opportunities to help the entity out whether it be moral support, financial support, or just being there to listen.
