Being A 'Sig Delt' Has Taught Me More Than College, Or Anything Else

I could go on listing every single aspect in how Sigma Delta Tau has truly made me a better person, but to save time I’m just going to highlight my favorite part.

I came to my school not knowing a single soul, I chose random for roommate options, and my major was undecided… talk about throwing yourself in for a big change.

My roommate had asked me if I was going through the upcoming recruitment process, and I said “yeah of course!” as I quickly searched what a recruitment process is and where it is. I then bought all the necessary outfits and accessories and before I knew it I was lined up in alphabetical order with 30 other girls and smiling with a gigantic breath mint in my mouth, walking into this room that was filled with jumping girls chanting their sorority song that would later be stuck in my head for the next six months.

Sigma Delta Tau.

The room that I saw show both compassion and dedication, love and empowerment, and most importantly, value. From open house, to philanthropy, and finally to preference day, I was able to witness these amazing sisters exhibit all of these characteristics, which led me to make the easiest decision of my life. I chose Sigma Delta Tau.

Throughout this past year of being in this sorority, I achieved so much more than I really expected a sorority could ever give.

I could not be more grateful for everything that it has taught me. My pledge class was provided such an amazing executive board that has helped shape us into amazing women achieving things like Dean’s list, acceptance into competitive programs, leadership positions, and so much more while providing us with amazing experiences with other greek life, fun events, and promoting not one, but THREE philanthropies. Our chair board offers us weekly opportunities that range from athletic events, to new trendy clothes, to chances to meet alumni, and even holiday parties for sistas.

To speak for myself personally, someone who started off so shy and little, this sorority allowed me to meet my very best friends and be given a chance to express myself in every way possible. I have been able to accumulate those characteristics that I saw when I went through recruitment and so much more. I’ve been able to grow, to show passion for something so great and good.

We are currently a sisterhood consisting of 105 amazing girlies and I could not be more excited to see what my next two and a half years left within has in store for this chapter.

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.

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.
