4 Things Every Sorority Girl Should Know About Big Little
Alli Abrutyn

Big Little is one of the most exciting times in a new member's time before initiation. For those reading who don’t know what this is, it is a 4-day period where your “big” (an older girl who becomes your big sister) gives you three days of baskets filled with your sororities clothes, your favorite foods, funny poems about you, etc. On the last day you have “reveal” where you finally get to see who your big is. For anyone who hasn’t gone through this yet, here are some things you should know about big little

1.Your Big Will Make You Fat

There is a lot of irony in this one, my big and I met in a workout class yet she gave me a disgusting amount of food. From lime chips, to Zingermans, candy, cookie cake, frosted animal crackers etc… I had it all. So with all the piles of food in my room between my roommate and I, we couldn’t help but eat it and therefore pack on the pounds.

2.They Will Contact Everyone Relatively Close to You

For big little, your big will want to embarrass you, and to do this, they have to contact all of your friends. My big contacted all my close high school friends, camp friends, college friends, and even my mom. With this, she got all the dirt she needed on me to make me laugh, yet be a bit embarrassed.

3.Your Big Will Know all of Your Secrets Before You Even Know Them

This is kind of creepy if you actually think about it. Because your big contacts all of your friends she knows every embarrassing thing you’ve done from Middle School to High School to College and writes embarrassing poems about you and gives you disgusting pictures of yourself to reminisce on things you probably wanted to forget about.

4.They Will Try and Trick You into Thinking They Are Someone Else

I was kind of in a unique situation. My big kind of knew she was my big for a long time (since like June or July-ish, sorry to embarrass you :) ) and she told me she wanted to be my big. So she, along with all the other older girls in my sorority tried to trick my friends and I into thinking our bigs were different people than we thought. In my case, it didn’t really work (sorry again) but I was confused for a little bit!

Although my big didn’t trick me and I knew she would be my big pretty early on, I am still so happy with how it worked out. I can safely say big little was my favorite part of being a new member.

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.
