The organization's official designation as a "fraternity" rather than a "sorority" (often seen in the names of women's groups) derives from an early advisor, who noted that soror is a Latin word with no connection to the Greek traditions cited by many collegiate social groups like Alpha Gamma Delta.[1] Many other Greek-letter organizations for women likewise refer to themselves as fraternities, though in the collective sense are generally called "sororities".
