Being in a sorority is great

5 Of The Best Things About Being In A Sorority
Sam Boorstein

Getting to school can be super chaotic and overwhelming. From figuring out your schedule, how to study, and trying to get everyone's names straight the first few weeks takes a lot of you. I was lucky enough to have joined a sorority that made all of those things easier and continues to make them easier every day. I have met amazing people, joined clubs, and received help all because of my house.

But, these are the five things I think are the best:


Nothing much else to say. The girls who are ALWAYS there even if it is just for outfit advice.

2. Homework help

In a house of 200+ girls, you can guarantee there is someone with your major/class. People are always willing to help.

3. Community involvement

I love getting to hear what clubs and events people are going to. It makes me get involved on campus.

4. Sisterhood events

From going to games, eating, cooking, or watching TV together. Events are always fun & most of the time tasty!

5. Being a part of something larger

When you join a house, you are joining hundreds of thousands of other people who get to share a similar experience. It is truly amazing.

I consider myself to be a part of the lucky ones. I have met my best friends and found something amazing every day out of my sorority experience.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

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.
