20 Things Every Sorority Girl Can Relate To

20 Things Every Sorority Girl Can Relate To

It doesn’t matter if you’re in different houses or go to different schools.  Being Greek is a uniting force that bridges the gaps between the different sororities and campuses across the country.  You may think, “I have nothing in common with a girl who’s in ABC sorority! Us in EFG are so different from them.”  

Well, ladies, I hate to break it to you but there are parts of being Greek that translate no matter where you go to school.

To prove it, here are 20 things that every sorority girl will relate to:

1. You somehow manage to abbreviate almost every single word in the English language. 

2. You use mixers as the perfect opportunity to steal your sister’s cute new dress that you’ve been eying for awhile. 

3. Living on the halls is like a sleepover montage 24/7. 

4. You’ve spent all of your money on t-shirts.  Help me, I'm poor! 

5. During a candle lighting ceremony, you secretly want to blow out the candle just to see people’s reactions.  

6. Needing to buy everything with your sorority’s symbol on it (who doesn’t have a collection of turtle socks? So necessary.) 

7. You’re guilty of getting the social email for the night and saying, “Ew, *insert fraternity here*”. 

8. You know that if you don’t post a picture on Instagram then it’s like you weren’t even at that party.  (Do your thing #SELFIEQUEEN) 

9. You’ll always remember how you found your big: bonding over Starbucks and Channing Tatum’s abs. 

10. As a freshman, secretly being freaked out by the older girls’ obsession with you. 

11. You really, really hate going to chapter. 

12. But it’s all fine if a cute guy comes and makes an announcement at chapter. 

13. You always “throw what you know” when there’s a camera in sight. 

14. You know your sorority sisters are always there for you. 

15. You get overly aggressive during competitions with other sororities.  Oops.

16. You feel like everything you own somehow has your letters on it. 

17. Already buying gifts for your little even though they might not exist yet. 

18. Immediately having a bond with a sister from a different school. 

19. Never actually knowing your secret password for chapter until after you Google it. 

20. You never want to graduate and leave all the amazing all the amazing friends you’ve made in your sorority!   

Every girl in a sorority brags about how much they love their sorority, and with good reason! It’s part of my college experience that I wouldn’t change for the world.  Being apart of Delta Zeta has become such a large and important part of my life.  And I’m sure the same can be said about any other girl and their sorority.  This list may seem trivial, and a bit silly, but we’re girls.  We’re allowed to be silly and have fun with our sisters.  No matter who we are or how we relate to one another, we are sisters for life.  Plus, there is some truth to all of this, right?

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.

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.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
