6 Tips For Girls Who Are Going Through Recruitment This Year

The minute you enter college is the time where you have the opportunity to go out and meet extraordinary people and find the amazing human being that is inside of you, and what better way of doing that than being involved on campus! Almost every college student gets involved with extra curricular activities that are available at their school. There's athletics, key club, business clubs, and best of all –– Greek Life! Every year, hundreds of girls go through Panhellic Recruitment to find their home away from home! I know some of you may have heard of crazy stories of how recruitment works and the pressure that comes along it, but if there is one thing I can say through my past experience is that recruitment is not scary! Recruitment week was probably one of the best weeks of my life and if you plan on going through recruitment this year, than I have a few tips for you before you meet the woman who are going to change your life forever.

1. Don't let other people's experience get in the way of you going through rush week.

I am sure there is that one friend or relative who will tell you their experience during recruitment week. Some of them may say that they have had a wonderful experience and even received a bid, but some may tell you otherwise. No matter what the case is, don't let their negative feelings towards rush week convince you to not go through recruitment. Everyone has a different experience when meeting all the chapters, and it is important that you remember that when you it is your turn!

2. Dress to impress.

First of foremost, the girls will not judge you based off your looks! That is the last thing they are looking for when they are meeting you guys, but it never hurts to look nice when you are going through recruitment. Chapters even have certain guidelines of what they would like to see dress such as business casual for preference night, but they never ever look at things such as weight. The only thing you need to do is dress to impress!

3. Don't be intimated when you visit the chapters.

It may seem intimidating when you first meet the girls, but if there is one thing I can tell you is that you do not, and should not feel intimidated when you go through rush week. The girls are excited to see you and get to know you, so do not under any circumstances feel intimidated by them.

4. Go into the chapters with a positive attitude.

No one likes a negative nancy, but if you are a person with a bunch of optimism than this shouldn't be a problem for you. Always go into the houses with a smile and the motivation to learn about they girls and their chapters.

5. Do some research on the chapters before you begin recruitment.

Another suggestion for those who are rushing this year is to look and see what chapters are on your campus, and do some research about them online before recruitment. The girls will tell you everything about their chapters, but they will be more impressed when they see you already have the knowledge.

6. Never – and I mean never – be afraid to show the girls who you are.

I have saved the best tip for last, which is to not be afraid to show the girls who you truly are! That is how rush week works. Every sorority woman wants to see who you truly are so that they can find the beautiful and magnificent individual that you are, and if you have the confidence to do so, then honey you are going to receive a lot of call backs at this years rush week!

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania.

However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.
