Sorority Squat

What is the sorority squat?

Hands-on-knees, butt-out group photo pose

The sorority squat is a pose that sorority girls (effortlessly and without fail) adopt in group photos. Specifically, to do the sorority squat means to bend your knees slightly, place your hands on them, and pop out your butt, while simultaneously smiling for the camera.

Sorority girls began adopting this pose to allow them to vary their heights, making it easier to fit dozens or even hundreds of sisters within the same picture. Over time, though, the sorority squat became sorority girls' default, accepted group photo pose. Now, even when only two or three sisters feature in a photo, they're likely to assume the sorority squat.

Whenever anyone other than a college-aged female attempts to perform the sorority squat, they typically look ridiculous. So if you're reading this and thinking you might adopt the sorority squat in your next group photo, you may want to reconsider.


Ohmygod, I think I just pulled my back doing that sorority squat. Guess I'm not as young as I used to be
