This weekend, students will begin moving into UT's Sorority Village, and for the first time, each home will be occupied.

Sorority Village includes 13 homes and a central building with office and meeting space.

The first sorority houses opened to students two years ago, but contractor issues and other construction problems delayed the progress of some of the homes.

Students in Alpha Omicron Pi broke ground first, but now they're among the final two chapters to move in. They say the wait was frustrating, but worth it.

"I can't even describe the feeling right now. You know, you've seen pictures and plans for years," said Kelsey Wood, chapter president. "And to finally see it and to walk through that front door, to see the trophy cabinets, to see, you know, our old archives that we've had, but actually being able to showcase them. You know we have something in the front of our house that we have founding signatures on from when we were originally founded here at UT. It's just amazing to really see everything."

Sorority recruitment starts next Friday.

UT's panhellenic leaders say they're looking forward to having everyone in one place instead of spread across campus.
