  Fraternities and sororities - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Fraternities and sororities will also often maintain a chapter room, to which only initiates may ever be admitted and even whose existence may be kept secret.
During a period known as "Rush" or "Rush Week", fraternities and sororities invite fellow students to attend events at the house (or on-campus) and meet the current members of the organization.
The term "sorority" was not popularized until later in the 19th century, so most were founded as "women's fraternities" or "fraternities for women." The first national to adopt the word "sorority" was Gamma Phi Beta, established in 1874 at Syracuse University in Syracuse, New York.

 Sorority Rush as a Two-Sided Matching Mechanism
Each sorority is eligible to be matched to up to quota (q) rushees during formal rush, where quota is "the number of rushees accepting at least one invitation to the first round of invitational parties, divided by the number of participating fraternities" 9.
At this stage, sororities are not restricted to make a single set of bids, but may recruit continuously until their membership reaches T (or, in the case of sororities whose initial membership m was greater than T-q, until they have recruited q new members).
Similarly, a sorority S and rushee r will be said to together block a matching mu if they are not matched to one another at mu, but would both prefer to be matched to one another than to (one of) their present assignments.

It illustrates that quite contrary to the sorority's public image, the behavior of their elite leadership is motivated by politics, without regard for maintaining integrity when applying rules internally and dealing with people externally.
That elitist pride led them to misuse their power as they reneged on their original commitment and not only made sure nothing was done to the harassers, but also suspended my daughter, making her twice a victim, a victim of the original perpetrators and a victim of the leadership.
The sorority leadership was extremely disingenuous, hiding their true intentions and engaging in a pattern of behavior that further demonstrated their dirty politics and lack of integrity as they abused their power when they suspended one person for another's actions.
