There are many different reasons why you may want to join a sorority, some including hoping to obtain a leadership role, to meet new people, for the social benefits, or because you cannot wait to get to wear all of the trendy apparel that you will soon receive. Regardless of your reasoning for wanting to join a sorority, once you get in, you are going to need to make some room for the essential clothing articles that every sorority girl needs to have in her closet.

1. Little Black Dress

Being in a sorority means going to date functions and formals, and that means needing to have the perfect collection of little black dresses. Every time formal season rolls around, you may tell yourself that it is finally time to wear a dress with some color to it, but don't be surprised when you resort to your black dress collection more often than not.

2. Frat Tanks

3. White Dress

If you are thinking of joining a sorority, make sure you go shopping for the perfect white dress to wear to your initiation ceremony. This is an absolute must have in every sorority girl's closet.

4. Wooly Sweatshirt

The wooly is certainly a sorority fan favorite. It's soft material keeps you warm on cold days and is the go-to sweatshirt to throw on with everything. Definitely worth the price.

Their is no greater moment than when the apparel chairs announce that the sorority will be getting comfort color t-shirts for the semester's PR item. This brand matches with just about anything and you are always bound to look super trendy. Don't be surprised when you have to dedicate an entire drawer to your comfort colors collection.

7. Black Leggings

As the semester progresses, the school work is going to increase and the hours of sleep are going to decrease. Therefore, black leggings are going to start becoming more and more essential to your everyday life. You are going to want to take advantage of that extra hour of sleep in the morning rather than taking time to pick out a trendy outfit. Quickly throw on this staple item with your favorite sweatshirt and head out the door. Quick, easy, and you will still look cute.

8. Letters

Every sorority girl owns countless articles of clothing with her chapter's letters on them. It is important that you are proud to be in the sorority that you are in, and there is no better way to show your love for your chapter than by wearing your letters. Whether this is on a t-shirt or a sweatshirt, always rep your letters and wear them with pride.

9. Blue Ripped Jeans

When recruitment season rolls around, every sorority girl needs a pair of ripped blue jeans to wear with the shirt given to her by Panhel. Although the shirt may not be all that stylish, pair it with your trendy ripped jeans to make a great impression on all of the Potential New Members.

10. Baseball Hat

Whether you are having a bad hair day or you just want to represent your letters, having a baseball hat in your wardrobe is a must.

10 Things Someone Who Grew Up In A Private School Knows

The 10 things that every private school-goer knows all too well.


1. Uniforms

Plaid. The one thing that every private school-goer knows all too well. It was made into jumpers, skirts, shorts, scouts, hair ties, basically anything you could imagine, the school plaid was made into. You had many different options on what to wear on a normal day, but you always dreaded dress uniform day because of skirts and ballet flats. But it made waking up late for school a whole lot easier.

2. New people were a big deal

New people weren't a big thing. Maybe one or two a year to a grade, but after freshman year no one new really showed up, making the new kid a big deal.

3. You've been to school with most of your class since Kindergarten

Most of your graduating class has been together since Kindergarten, maybe even preschool, if your school has it. They've become part of your family, and you can honestly say you've grown up with your best friends.

4. You've had the same teachers over and over

Having the same teacher two or three years in a row isn't a real surprise. They know what you are capable of and push you to do your best.

5. Everyone knows everybody. Especially everyone's business.

Your graduating class doesn't exceed 150. You know everyone in your grade and most likely everyone in the high school. Because of this, gossip spreads like wildfire. So everyone knows what's going on 10 minutes after it happens.

6. Your hair color was a big deal

If it's not a natural hair color, then forget about it. No dyeing your hair hot pink or blue or you could expect a phone call to your parents saying you have to get rid of it ASAP.

7. Your school isn't like "Gossip Girl"

There is no eating off campus for lunch or casually using your cell phone in class. Teachers are more strict and you can't skip class or just walk right off of campus.

8. Sports are a big deal

Your school is the best of the best at most sports. The teams normally go to the state championships. The rest of the school that doesn't play sports attends the games to cheer on the teams.

9. Boys had to be clean-shaven, and hair had to be cut

If you came to school and your hair was not cut or your beard was not shaved, you were written up and made to go in the bathroom and shave or have the head of discipline cut your hair. Basically, if you know you're getting written up for hair, it's best just to check out and go get a hair cut.

10. Free dress days were like a fashion show

Wearing a school uniform every day can really drive you mad. That free dress day once a month is what you lived for. It was basically a fashion show for everyone, except for those upperclassmen who were over everything and just wore sweat pants.

To The College Student That Feels All Alone At Her Big University

Going to college and being away from home can be difficult especially when you go to a big university and feel all alone!


Leaving high school behind also means leaving prior friendships behind as well for most students heading out to pursue college, especially if that college is out of state!

Going to college out of state means that you most likely go in not knowing a single person. That can be extremely intimidating and scary. When you go to a school where the campus is gigantic and the student body is around 35,000 individuals, it can be difficult to find your own place within that college and stand out amongst the rest of the crowd.

Sororities and fraternities are a wonderful way to get involved on campus, meet new people and make new friends. However, if you are like me and that is not your cup of tea, then finding your own place at college and meeting new people can be intimidating and difficult. I am one who hates to go to events alone and I tend to stay to myself due to that and it becomes very lonely here at college.

Going from an enormous amount of friends with in high school to feeling all alone and as if you have no one at college definitely can make your college experience go south.

I want you to know that you are not the only one who feels alone in a college campus where everywhere you turn are new faces and possible future friends. Not being a part of an organization, sports team, sorority or fraternity can make meeting people seem hard and intimidating. Not going to parties or out on the town might not be your scene and can make it seem like you are missing out on a lot of the college experience. But, we as individuals need to figure out our own place within our college and find our own ways to get involved and meet others. There are so many clubs and programs to join when you go to college, especially when you go to a huge university.

Coming from the girl who spends her days in her apartment never leaving unless it is for class, being cooped up inside all the time can actually make you feel worse and more lonely. Thankfully, I was able to bring my wonderful dog with me to my second year of college and spending time with him makes me feel so much better!

Whether it is getting a pet or joining a club or other program at college, we as students need to get involved and stay active to keep from withering our college experiences away by being inside all alone every single day. Trust me, I know it can be scary and seem like a lot of work to try and find your place within your own college amongst so many other people, but once you do you will open up the door to so many more new possibilities.

Putting yourself out there will bring you friends, activities to do and more that, will keep you from feeling all alone when you have no one from 'home' around you!

Thankfully, I have a few individuals who I am blessed to call my friends and make my college experience a lot better when we get the chance to do things together!
