12 Things I Miss About Living in My Sorority House

During the summer, these are the things I miss most.

12 Things I Miss About Living in My Sorority House

I am living at home for the summer. As much as I love being able to spend time with my family, I miss living in my sorority house with my abundance of sisters. Living in a sorority house is not simply what one sees in mainstream movies and culture. It is about being a part of something much larger than yourself. Living in my sorority house is a privilege, and couldn’t imagine not having this experience.

Now, let’s get down to the specifics. . .

1. Food.

There is always food in the house, or a group of people going to get ice cream.

2. Always having people to spend time with.

Not that my little brothers aren’t great, but I miss having people my own age to talk to.

3. The lack of judgement for your sleeping habits.

There’s always going to be someone who is going to bed later than you.

Similarly. . .

4. The lack of judgment for your eating habits.

Of course you should eat a second cupcake, you’ve been thinking about it for the past ten minutes.

5. Having a constant support system.

It doesn’t matter if you are going through a break up, or suffering from grief. Your sisters are there to help.

6. Having a rant buddy.

You may need to rant about a paper, a job, or a conversation. There have been times where I swear I’ve worn through the carpet through my pacing.

7. Being able to have 20 different opinions on your wardrobe.

You just need to ask one person in a room if they think your outfit looks okay, and everyone will reassure you of your beauty.

8. Being able to borrow clothes from your sisters.

Or let them borrow your clothes. It goes both ways!

9. Always having a comfy spot to sit in.

Whether that is at your desk, sitting on the couch, or in the middle of the floor.

10. Having people who share your interests

If you fangirl over something, you are sure to find others who do the same. Disney movie marathon night? Hack yeah!

11. Having people who can look over an email/a paper (or an Odyssey article)


This is another great perk. Even if I second guess myself, I have people around me who are willing to take a second look.

12. Friendship.


Friendship is at the heart of my chapter, and I am so glad I am able to experience it.

As a girl who only grew up with brothers, having a house full of sisters is a new experience for me. I have made a multitude of happy memories in my sorority house, and I'm sure I will make more in the coming semesters. I never have to be alone if i don't want to be, and that is one aspect I greatly appreciate. I am beyond excited to return for the second year!

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.

The patriots of the American Revolution aren't the only ones who gave us the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

10 Revolutionary Women To Remember This Fourth Of July

Independence Day is almost upon us, which means that for most Americans, it'll be time to bust out the lawn chairs and grills, gather around family and friends, and praise our history through patriotic garb and grand fireworks displays. It's the one day of the year where everyone forgets their political biases or historic inaccuracies, at least for a while, to look back on the hazy, illustrious history of the United States.

But, while we celebrate what people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry did for this country, they are not the only ones who embodied the very virtues that our nation loves to advocate for. This Fourth of July, here are ten American women who history tends to forget, despite the groundbreaking things they did for their country.
