Active members have to sing, clap, and scream simultaneously while flashing smiles that trump Julia Roberts' for at least two eight-hour days and then continue to talk to potential new members without breaking a sweat (literally and figuratively). And that's followed by a full week of practice. After going through the other side of recruitment, sorority girls develop so many more skills besides flawlessly walking in wedges and mastering the art of small talk; they can do just about anything.
