An Open Letter To My Sorority Sisters

We all need great sorority sisters in our lives.

An Open Letter To My Sorority Sisters
Laura Stringer

Dear sisters,

It's almost that time of the year again. We will come back to campus and get ready to welcome our new sisters home. We will watch them run to the house, and greet them with open arms. There's going to be a lot of work put into several weeks, but in the end, it'll all be worth it.

It will all be worth it because, in the end, we will have new sisters, who will be just as passionate about our organization as we are.

It will all be worth it because I will be able to give another girl the same wonderful first year that you gave me.

I was never what I imagined to be a sorority girl, but this group of women has shown me that I am exactly what the chapter needed, and the chapter was exactly what I needed. I can't even begin to imagine what my first year would have been like without you in it.

You have made me a better person in so many ways. You have made me more confident and gave me the courage to tell my story. You made me a better student, by inviting me to so many study sessions.

We've had fun times too. Whether it was sitting in the TV room watching another romantic comedy or sitting on our laptops watching Youtube videos of terrible covers from Barbie movies.

I can't even begin to find the words to describe how thankful I am that you are in my life. Thank you for accepting me as a sister and making my first year on campus unforgettable.

People are always telling me that we will drift apart after our four years are up, but I know that's not true. We are sisters now, then, and forever.


Your Sister.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
