10 Things Non-Greeks Don't Understand


Not everyone gets it. There are certain things about Greek life that are hard to explain. Here are the most commonly misunderstand phenoms.

1. Greek Week. It's perfectly normal to support your big while she gulps down a plate of nachos in the spirit of competition or teach a group of frat boys how to dance to Beyoncé.

2. Big/little love. Crafting, family photos and matching shirts. It’s not a friendship; it’s an obsession.

3. Throwing what you know. Whether you’re at the beach, a philanthropy event or a Frat house, you better claim that territory! 

4. Dues. Paying for friends? Definitely not. I’m pretty sure I’m not.

5. Themed mixers. My closet looks like an eight year-old girl’s toy box and I wear everything in it.

6. Rush. Try to convince 100 different girls that you’re an awesome and unique person while making a long-lasting impression. You have three minutes… go!

7. Pledging. My boyfriend can’t hangout today. He has to clean red solo cups and puke off the floor of his fraternity. No, none of it is his.

8. Fanny packs. Wait, didn’t these go out of style 25 years ago? It has my letters on it, though, and that makes it cute.

9. Chapter. A meeting that only my sorority sisters can attend, but we break out the pearls and tasteful heels.

10. The sorority squat. There is nobody behind us in this picture, but the squat is still necessary.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow
Sorina Bindea

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?

Things to do in October.


Halloween is a fun holiday for everyone of all ages. There are so many fun things to do in the month of October before Halloween and the day of Halloween.

It gives everyone a chance to show what they love to do as well.
