The 13 Things You'll Hear PNM's Say During Rush

The 13 Things You'll Hear PNM's Say During Rush

"When do we get to meet the frat boys?"

While going through recruitment girls emotions are everywhere. One moment, you're so excited because you had the best conversation and then the next you're stressed because you thought one of the girls didn't like you. At some point, every girl will think or say these things while going through the craziest and most stressful week of their life.

1. “I’m so excited!!!!”

Before everyone realizes how stressful it can be, you'll think it's going to be so much fun.

2. “Wait, I don’t think I can do this."

What every girl thinks after their first house.

3.“OMG, that girls outfit is way cuter than mine”

4.“Did I seriously just talk about my major for 30 minutes in that house?”

For the beginning of rush, you don't have a lot of time in each house so conversations will be short and boring. Basically, hey this is my dorm and I like dogs.

5.“It's so hot, where’s my mini fan”

6.“Do you think I can take a nap under this tree?”

At the end of the day, each girl is tired and ready to be done and then nap for a week.

7. "Why didn’t the Rho Chi put my bag under the tent? My phone has water damage."

Warning: Phones will be broken in the process of recruitment

8. “When do we get to meet the frat boys??”

Because why else does anyone join a sorority????? Just kidding.

9. "I just want to go home."

10. “I got my favorite house back!”

When you get dropped by a house you like it'll feel like the end of the world, but if you get your favorite houses back, you'll feel like you're flying.

11. “I need a drink.”

Just a little something to take the edge off is always nice after a long day of useless conversations.

12. “I need oil blotting sheets right now, I feel like my face is melting off.”

13. “When will this be over?”

Rush is hard and will make you want to cry and cry some more. But in the end, all the long days, and constant sweating will be worth it because you'll be with your sisters!!!!

Way To Go Phi Kappa Tau, Just Perpetuating The Stereotype That ECU Is Nothing But A Party School

The Xanax fraternity four is setting the bar high

It seems that fraternities are becoming an endangered species on ECU's campus. Over the last few months, a lot of frat's have either been shut down or suspended. Phi Kappa Tau was added to this list last week when 4 arrests were made in a raid where over 2,500 Xanax bars were seized (YIKES) along with two shotguns, and it was said that marijuana was also being sold from their house.

Of course, the word got out fast and caused a buzz amongst students. One ECU student took to Twitter to call out one of the guys who was arrested because he just so happens to be in the same group as him in one of his classes and apparently they had a presentation due the next day. Talk about bad timing.

The tweet went viral with over 153k retweets and 596k likes. Leave it to ECU to make light of a bad situation. Whoever @iam_spiffy has overshadowed the actual news story with how much traction his tweet got, which is really a testament to how prevalent Twitter is to our generation and how it can make literally anything funny.

While it is unfortunate for the other fraternity members, I don't know if there is any excuse even the sliest of college students could come up with to explain why in the world there were 2,500 Xanax bars. Way to go Phi Kappa Tau, just perpetuating the stereotype that ECU is nothing but a party school even more! *Rolls eyes*

Just to clarify, not all fraternities and sororities at ECU (and in general) are like this one. A lot of them focus on networking and philanthropy as opposed to becoming "street pharmacists." Hopefully, other frats on campus will learn from this one's mistakes, but if not let's only hope that someone else will have a funny response to it.

Here you can read more about the details of these arrests.

I'm Not Even A Little Surprised That My Big Became My Best Friend

And she made a BIG impact.

The most exciting part of joining any sorority is Big/Little Reveal, no questions asked. Mine was certainly no exception. I only knew a few initiated girls before my reveal, and I'll admit, I was nervous. I wasn't sure who she could be and I didn't know what to expect after I got to know her.

When a sheet was dropped during my Big/Little Reveal and my big was standing there, I was so excited! I already knew I liked her, but I had no idea I'd grow to love her as much as I have.

The weeks leading up to my initiation consisted of getting coffee once a week, just getting to know each other. It wasn't until after I was initiated and we went to our first semi-formal together that we really started to become close friends. But, thank God we did.

Since then, she has become a rock in my life, someone I can call and would come running to me when I need her. She is my favorite morning coffee date and the best Thursday night Moe's vs. Chipotle argument. She's someone who always keeps me in check.

The best thing about being able to call her my big and a best friend is that I have someone who can guide me every day. I can go to her in need of advice about classes, with questions about anything Greek, or general complaints about life. She stays honest with me and we know we can lean on each other. She tells me when she knows I'm right and she calls me out when I'm grumpy and need a nap, and I think that's the best kind of friend anyone could ask for.

Not every Big/Little relationship is as amazing as mine, so I know I'm blessed to have her. She makes me excited about Greek Life and more confident every day!
