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!

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.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
