7 Things People Will Tell You When You Join A Co-Ed Professional Fraternity

"So it's like a fraternity where all you do is study together?"

7 Things People Will Tell You When You Join A Co-Ed Professional Fraternity

1."You mean a sorority right?" 

Pretty much, except we also let our male members join in on the sorority squatting and girl talk. #inclusion

2. "So both guys and girls can join?" 

We also accept applications from dogs, dolphins, hobbits, Grindylows, Hippogriffs, Inferi, Ninja Turtles (regular turtles need not apply), and the occasional evil spirit contained in a videotape.

3. "What if people start dating?"  

We require them to embroider a Scarlet "A" on their chest and stand on a scaffold in public for as long as we see fit. We used to just banish them from the village but the population was getting too small... but actually, for the most part we turn our heads the other way until they care to admit what everyone else already knows.

4. "I don't think Greek Life should be Co-Ed."  

I don't think the Comic Sans font and pumpkin spice flavored cream cheese should exist, but isn't it nice to have opinions?

5. "So is it like an honor society?"  

It's exactly like an honor society except without the honor society part.

6. "So it's like a fraternity where all you do is study together?"

Absolutely. We discuss Treasury Bill Rates and the Principals of Accounting and when that conversation runs its course we twiddle our thumbs until its time to go to class. Sometimes when we're feeling wild we go to office hours together.

7. "Why didn't you join regular Greek Life?" 

In all seriousness, Greek Life should be about finding an organization where you feel as though you belong. With people and values with whom you can identify. I have a chapter full of people in my life who taught me a lot about not only professionalism, but myself as a person. They are my family away from home, so I can comfortably say I found what I was looking for.

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.

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.
