10 Reasons Living In A Sorority House Is Even Better Than The Movies

As one can imagine, the benefits of living with thirty of your sisters in a beautiful house are endless. But just to save time, here are the top 10 reasons why I love living in my sorority house.

1. You essentially have an unlimited closet.

Living with 30 girls really has its perks. 30 closets in the span of one house? Yes, please. Swapping and sharing in addition to impromptu fashion shows and critiques happen every day, all day, 24/7.

2. The chef is amazing and won't judge you for inhaling six burgers at dinner.

Dorm food can easily be categorized as borderline abusive. Having a personal chef that makes soups, salads and dinners of your choice is nothing short of fabulous. Let’s not forget the fact that the ingredients don’t permanently damage your digestive track! Additionally, the kitchen is stocked with snacks and goodies of your choice at all times. What could be better?

3. The warm and fuzzy feeling you get when you walk inside.

Living in a house is one thing, but living in a home is entirely different. A home is somewhere you seek solace and comfort. A home is where you are at peace and feel secure. The sorority house becomes, not just a place of congregation and meetings, but it the place you seek in your time of need. Lucky for you, in that home are at least thirty of your sisters to be there for you.

4. You have a constant, ever-present source of entertainment.

There is not a day or a night that goes by where I’m left bored. Indisputably, there are constant shenanigans, scheming and laughter. Bachelor viewing parties, fro-yo trips, and gossip sessions are the little things that make living in the house exponentially more fun.

5. You feel so legit when you use "The Fob" to unlock the door.

There is truly nothing more gratifying than hearing the click of acceptance as The Fob grants you exclusive entrance into the sorority house.

6. You always have a shoulder to cry on.

In the wake of school stress and such, comes emotional breakdowns and a need for a support system. The thirty girls I live with are my most immediate support system every time I step into that house. Sisterhood isn’t just about the fun, it’s about the commitment and love every girl has for one another.

7. Your sisters provide endless encouragement.

The girls you live with will encourage you to be the best person you can be. They will inspire you to elevate yourself into a strong, self-confident young woman. These women will teach you lessons no other person could.

Anytime you need motivation and support it's like having a whole team to cheer you on. And for the occasional circumstance where wacky behavior is necessary, they will bring out the fun and crazy no one else knows you have in you.

8. Living with girls is a challenge but it's honestly the best.

Girls rule Boys drool. Simple as that.

9. It's literally impossible to be lonely.

The best thing about walking into a sorority house is being greeted by all the girls in it. Never is there a time where I feel lonesome, and never is there a night where I go to bed without receiving goodnight wishes from my two perfect roommates.

10. Sisterhood is a bond that can never be broken.

At the end of the day, it's not the scrumptious food, lavish house, or the clean bathrooms that drive my love for this house. It’s the thirty plus girls in the there who remind me every day how lucky I am to be included in such a group of powerful and independent women. These girls make this house my home.

Dear Mom, From Your Daughter In College

Here are all the things our phone calls aren't long enough to say.

Dear Mom,

Do you remember when I was three and we would play together? It was the age of princesses and carpet that was actually lava, and you were the prettiest woman in the whole wide world. Do you remember when I was in high school and the world seemed too big and scary? You would know exactly when to take me on a mother-daughter date and have me laughing about anything and everything, and you were the smartest woman in the whole wide world. Now, I'm buried in homework and deadlines hours away from you and we don't get to talk as much you want, but you're still the prettiest, smartest woman in the whole wide world.

I'm sorry that I don't call you as much as I should, and you know a lot of what goes on in my world via posts and pictures. Our schedules just seem to never line up so we can have the three-hour conversations about everything like I want to. I know we don't agree on absolutely everything, but I cherish every piece of advice you give me, even though it probably seems like I'm hardly listening. I know that sometimes we get on each other's nerves, but thank you for putting up with me for all of these years. Thank you for listening to me cry, complain, question things and go on and on about how everything in college is. I know I don't come home as much as I used to, but I think about you all the time. After all, you're my first friend, and therefore, my best friend.

Thank you for celebrating my successes with me, and not downing me too hard for my failures. Thank you for knowing what mistakes I shouldn't make, but letting me make them anyway because you want me to live my life and be my own person. Thank you for knowing when to ask about the boy I've been talking about, and when to stop without any questions. Thank you for letting me be my crazy, weird, sometimes know-it-all self.

Thank you for sitting back and watching me spread my wings and fly. There is no way I could have known how to grow into the woman I am today if I hadn't watched you while I was growing up so I would know what kind of person I should aspire to be. Thank you for being the first (and the best) role model I ever had. You continue to inspire and amaze me every day with all that you do, and all that you are.

I don't know how I got so lucky to have a person in my life like you, but I thank the Lord every night for blessing me with the smartest, prettiest person to be my best friend, my role model, my confidant, my person and most importantly, my mother.

Love,

Your daughter

22 Signs The Girls You've Met In College Will Be Part Of Your Girl Gang For Life

To the lovely ladies I've met in college that I can never imagine my life without again

507

Let me just be the first to say, I honestly don't know how I survived the majority of my life without you guys.

Attending college out of state in a completely new area and not knowing a single soul, I was petrified of the idea of starting over. I had a great group of friends at home, and I wasn't ready to begin this new chapter of my life. Hearing my parents and family friends talk about the people they met in college only stressed me out even more because, what if I didn't meet "my people?"

Luckily, that's when you guys came along, and my life was changed forever.

1. You genuinely care about each other's happiness.

2. Talking 24/7 is absolutely necessary.  You basically have a 2nd boyfriend.

3. You know absolutely everything and more about each other...even the details that may be TMI.

4. Regardless of how dramatic it is, you can rely on one another for advice on absolutely anything.

5. You can't go more than 2 days without seeing one another...it's just not allowed. It feels like your 2nd boyfriend has mysteriously gone missing.

6. And when you go out together for a girls night, all hell breaks loose.

7. The best way to solve your problems is with each other, and a full glass of wine.

8. Somehow you lasted 18 years without them in your life, and you wonder every day how that was possible.

A friend like you is something I've always prayed to find, and I am so thankful I did.

9. You willingly shower each other with compliments like it is your job.

10. They give you that reality check every here and there when you are being more than overdramatic.

11. When something amazing happens, you immediately go to one another to celebrate.

12. They're always your support system no matter what.

13. They'll most likely be in your bridal party because they're the only people who will keep you mentally sane.

I wouldn't want anyone else beside me on my special day.

14. Staying mad at each other for long is just not even slightly possible.

15. You probably hate the same people, for the same reasons.

To the boy who screwed over your best friend, the girl who's secretly in love with your boyfriend, and the professor who gave you a bad grade, me and my best friend most likely talk about you!

16. No one will ever mistreat them, because they would have to go through you first.

17. You're right beside them when something intense is about to go down.

Neither of you will ever go through drama alone anymore, you've always got a go-to girl.

18. They're always loyal to you and your friendship, and fortunately, they're stuck with you forever.

19. Some of your best memories are with each other.

20. They always feel like sunshine when they're around.

The people who feel like the color yellow are the type of people you always want to keep in your life.

21. You will never allow a boy to make each other cry.

22. You remind them daily how much their friendship means to you.
