10 Tips For Those Going Through Recruitment

I know this process can be scary, trust me, I know. Every girl in the house has gone through the same process that you are about to begin. The girls inside understand what it is like so don't be scared. We want to get to know you and who you are as a person. You are getting t know us just like we are getting to know you! Just sit back, relax, and breathe. Trust the process, keep an open mind, and just have fun. This is supposed to be fun and allow you to find your forever home. Trust the process and remember that everything happens for a reason!

Have fun



Be yourself, the girls on the other side are just as nervous as you are.

It's okay to take the water!! I know it's hot outside! So take a drink to stay hydrated, it will make you feel so much better!

Remember to keep an open mind, and don't get set on one chapter. You have no idea what the others have to offer, and you need to give more than just one a fair chance!

Don't be disappointed if things don't work out the way you initially hoped. Recruitment is about finding the best match, and the process helps with this decision!

Ask your Gamma Chi about what to expect. Sorority Recruitment is unlike anything you have probably experienced and knowing what you are walking into will help you take your first steps through the doors that one day you could possibly call home. Your Gamma Chi is there to help you, so let them!

Don't listen to anything you've heard about any of the chapter's on your campus. People will talk and tell you the reputations each chapter holds but try to block those out and form your own opinions based on conversations you are having with the women of each chapter throughout the week. Follow your gut and trust your instincts.

Trust the system. You may go in thinking you've found your home on day 1, but you might not get called back. Don't let that shatter your hope. It happened for a reason, and trust me when I say you're probably better off. When you know, you just know. Just stay hopeful, stay strong, and everything will make sense when you're running to your forever home on Bid Day! Remember, everything happens for a reason!!

Don't be nervous to ask real questions. This is the only way that you can really learn which house if the fit for you and the girls you are talking to will be more than happy to answer.

First impressions are important. This isn't just for recruitment, it's for every area of your life! Smile, enjoy yourself and dress in a way that makes you feel confident.

When going through recruitment, dress to show your personality! Just be you and that's something you can trust!

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Every single one of us has a story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded.
