5 Reasons I'm Glad I Chose To Join A Sorority

I've never made a better choice.

5 Reasons I'm Glad I Chose To Join A Sorority

1. So many opportunities

I never really thought of sorority girls and fraternity guys did anything but party and have fun, but that's really not the case at all. They get so many chances to have leadership roles within their chapter and go to so many national events. Most even have a philanthropy that they take part in to help out different organizations and the community. It's great to do something for someone other than yourself.

2. I've met some of my best friends

I was so hesitant to go to recruitment because I was unsure of what this whole thing was about. I had heard about hazing and that's what scared me the most. Wanna know a secret? Hazing is not allowed and your sisters would never want to hurt you anyways. I never ever thought that I would be sitting in a room listening to these girls talk about all that they do either. It lit a fire in me, I swear to you. After joining I got so close with all of the girls and now I can say they are some of my best friends. They're my sisters, I can go to them for anything.

3. Getting to know secrets and rituals that no one else knows

Each sorority and fraternity have their own rituals and sacred secrets that no one knows about unless they are initiated into that specific chapter. It's so exciting to know something and be a part of it when other people are not. It's special and you'll remember it forever.

4. It taught me how to manage my time

Before, I would just wing everything. I went to classes and went to work. I found time for class work somewhere in there. Now I am part of something. I have meetings each week, events, and rituals to attend. I have to keep a schedule and be organized. This is going to prepare me for after graduation and I'm so greatful for it.

5. We have fun

Whether it be the five minutes before our meetings, at a school event that we all happened to show up at, or if we’re going to retreat. We are laughing almost all the time. Never have I met a group of girls that love me for me. I can be myself around them.

I am so glad that I joined Alpha Xi Delta and I would not take back my choice if I had the chance. I love it.

As any other person on this planet, it sometimes can be hard to find the good in things.

Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media.

I would like to represent the girlfriends out there who disagree with her standpoint -- the girlfriends who would be more than happy to receive any of these gifts from their boyfriends.
