25 Thoughts Every Girl Has When Going Through Recruitment At A Small School

Sorority recruitment time!

25 Thoughts Every Girl Has When Going Through Recruitment At A Small School
Drury University Tri Deltas

When it comes to that fabulous time of the year we like to call recruitment, sororities nationwide begin to prepare for their wonderful week of rush. Regardless of the size of the university, all sororities are putting their creative minds and crafting skills to work. They need to have the best recruitment possible, and ultimately get the best girls into their chapters. While on the other side, the new recruits, or as we like to call them "PNM’s," are trying to prepare themselves to make their best impressions.

Throughout the recruitment process there are many ups and downs. There are times of confusion, laughter, and tears. Even though the university/recruitment may be smaller than most, it doesn’t mean the process of recruitment gets any easier or any less exciting. Here are 25 thoughts girls have when going through recruitment at a small school:

1. AHHHH It’s finally here!!!!! I can’t wait to be in a sorority!!

2. Wait..there are only four chapters?

3. What am I going to do if I don’t get a bid?

4. My Rho Chi said to just stay confident; BE YOURSELF!

5. What does PNM mean and why do they keep calling me that?

6. Why are they singing to me?

7. Why is everyone in this chapter so gorgeous?

8. I think I might have experienced a slight heart attack.

9. SO. MUCH. SINGING. I feel like I’m in a Greek-themed Disney movie.

10. This feels like a round of speed dating, but with a group of girls that are much prettier than me.

11. When is this round going to be over..I’m starving.

12. My face is literally in pain from smiling so much.

13. Why do they keep calling these things parties? There’s no partying going on in here.

14. If I get asked that question one more time, I’m going to lose it.

15. I think that might have been the worst conversation of my life..

16. I can’t wait till this week is over so I can go back to wearing my baggy t-shirts and shorts.

17. This suite is so cute..I think I could love it here!

18. I wonder how many times they had to practice that song...

19. That song is kind of catchy though. “Ba doom ba doom…”

20. Wow, this just got deep.

21. Literally I want these girls to be my sisters so bad..what if they don't want me? What am I going to do? I'm so stressed!

22. This is the longest five hours of my life!

23. What if I don’t get my first choice? ::starts to cry::

24. I hope they want me as much as I want them!

25. Yes! I found my home!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

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.

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.
