We, the academic women’s sorority (ADV) Eostarae, were founded on April 5th, 2015 by female students attending the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität as the first women’s sorority in Erlangen. Our Name “Eostarae” traces its origin back to our establishment during Easter 2015 and recalls the Germanic goddess of springtime, Eostrae, for whom Easter was named after. Our sorority’s colors are dark red, gold, a night blue which symbolically represent the eternal flowing of days, as well as our principles of friendship, equality and ambition. With the motto “Tempus est etiam maiora conari” (It is time to wage great things), we have established ourselves as the only remaining women’s sorority in Erlangen.
Tempus est etiam maiora conari – It is time to wage great things!
