The mission of the Shorter University Sorority Life is to enhance the university experience through scholarship, community service, philanthropy, leadership, and social interaction.

We strive to uphold the traditions and values of our fraternity and sororities by promoting strong bonds of brotherhood and sisterhood.

Our sorority community consists of these three sororities: Alpha Delta Pi, Phi Mu, and Zeta Tau Alpha.
