HSOs (High School Organizations) Posted on 01-05-2008

Soooo... out of curiousity... Were any of you, or are any of you, members of High School Organizations (HSOs)? Here in Memphis, they are kind if popular with the High School students... we have tons of them.. and they step, host parties, do their strolls and calls and all that jazz. They do they whole "pledging" process (lines) and initiaite members, community service projects, etc. etc. The less knowledgable people refer to them as "high school sororities/fraternities", though we always have to correct them because we are NOT and do not claim to be sororities/fraternities... although some of the male organizations are affiliated with some fraternities (Kappa League, NSI/Omega Prep). So I was just wondering if they were popular elsewhere or if any of you are/had been members of anything similar?

My school had like one or two, but you had to have like a constant 3.5 gpa to get in though. And most people didn't hear about it until they were just about graduating. The only HSO's that I joined were the ones that the students and teachers formulated, like the Pre-Med Club, The Foreign Student Club, N.O.L.A.: Banneker Rebuilds New Orleans...stuff like that.

Wow... maybe it is a regional thing. We have the step show coming up in about two weeks. There are HSOs coming from Baton Rouge, Huntsville, Horn Lake, Knoxville, etc. etc. All of which are located in the South.

beautiful what is the name of the organization? I believe you are a lil sister of the AKA's. In the midwest we did not have male greek organization such as BETA Sigma Club (Lil brothers of the men of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc.) but I know my friend was a lil sis to the Deltas. These type organizations are not common up North or in the Midwest. I am not sure why but they are hot down here in da South.

I am from Nashville, TN and High School Organizations are very popular. When I was in high school, they use to have parties, galas, step shows, etc. Coincidentally, most of those individuals are now members of Greek organizations, which is a good thing.
