This qualitative research study utilized a phenomenological approach to explore the relationship between sorority ritual and self-efficacy. Guided by Social Cognitive Theory, data were collected through focus groups and one-on-one interviews. This study provided new insights into the role of ritual participation on perceived increases in self-efficacy in college women. Implications for future research and practice also are discussed.
