8 Ways to Mildly Annoy a Sorority Girl

Because "The House Bunny" is not legit.

8 Ways to Mildly Annoy a Sorority Girl

Whenever I tell people that I have joined a sorority, I receive one of two reactions. The first reaction is usually somewhere between an approving smile and nod, and a list of reasons as to why this will be one of the best decisions of my life. That reaction, of course, is from someone who knows and understands Greek life. The second reaction is typically from anyone who has watched "The House Bunny" and did not go on to look into any realities behind Greek life.

Here are eight reactions that myself, as well as every other sorority girl, are annoyed and tired of responding to:

1. "Tell me one of your sorority's secrets."


2. "You're too smart to be in a sorority!"

Actually, sororities require their members to maintain a certain GPA. If anything, going Greek has made me an even better student.

3. "Is it true that they make you drink?"

Absolutely not.

4. "Are you not allowed to hang out with any of your other friends?"

I can be friends with anyone I want. In fact, i can be friends with someone in an entirely different sorority! **gasp**

5. "What if you don't like one of your sisters?"

I wouldn't know. I love all of my sisters.

6. "Oh is that because you have to?"

What?! No! Who the heck would dictate that?

7. "You probably wouldn't like my friend; she's in a different sorority."

That's not a thing. Greek unity, dude. Greek unity!

8. "Did you join a sorority so that you could party?"

No. Believe it or not, girls join sororities to get involved at college and raise money for charities as well as to find lifelong friends who share the same values as their own.

So if you are someone who has ever asked any one of these questions: stop. Secondly, know that there is a completely appropriate way to learn more information about Greek life. I understand that the mystery and stigma behind sorority life can be fascinating and at times, intriguing but I would much prefer to answer realistic questions about my sorority.

Helpful tip: ask about our philanthropy and all of the amazing leadership opportunities and ways we have gotten involved through our Greek organizations if you are interested in knowing more.

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.
