Jewish Sorority

At present, there is no official Jewish sorority on campus.

WFU Jewish women are welcome into, have no problem joining, rise to levels of leadership, and have lots of fun and camaraderie in their sororities. Many of our Hillel students, including those on the Hillel Board, are also active in their sororities.

Wake Forest juniors Jamie Lichtenstein (‘18), Robyn Adelkopf ('18) and sophomore Zoe Kreutzer ('19) hang out together in the campus coffee shop
