What Your Favorite FSU Fraternity Says About You

What Your Favorite FSU Fraternity Says About You

You might as well be considered a brother.

You're a groupie. There I said it. It's nothing to be ashamed of. Yes, you have a favorite fraternity and you're on every date function and you probably already know all of the new members' names by October. You spend most of your time at the house whether you're partying, being their honorary house mom, eating, etc. Whichever it may be, your favorite fraternity says a lot about you.


Kappa Alpha Order aka KA

You probably like to spend your nights at Ken's and listening to country music. You like to have an excuse to drink at any hour of the day or for any occasion. Building a fort at nine in the morning? You'll drink to that. You like guys with trucks and you would probably kill someone to wear a giant hoop skirt on formal.

Theta Chi

You aren't surprised when your entire Snapchat feed on every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday is a video of Standard completely empty with the caption "early derd gets the worm" and you can't think of anything better than day drinking with the boys for Desperado.

Pi Kappa Phi aka Pi Kapp

You sometimes wish that finding toilet paper in the bathroom by the laundry room was as easy as finding out the door code (you know it no matter how many times it's been changed). You're an early riser for noon games because mimosas on the deck are just so tempting.

Delta Tau Delta aka Delt

You are a fan of the kings of Copeland. You can't wait to see your favorite boys at Recon but you can't stand the crowds of girls that you've never seen at the house before. Ice luge and the best music at tailgates never disappoints.

Alpha Tau Omega aka ATO

The fact that the house is a convenient walking distance to the stadium is something that you will forever be grateful for.

Pi Kappa Alpha aka Pike

You're a very loyal groupie. You plan your schedule around courtyard days and you consider Pike Academy to be a national holiday. Your iMessage auto-corrects "only" to "obly" and you know every word to the Pike drinking song. You low key compare your friends in other fraternities to those who are scholars, leaders, athletes and gentlemen

Sigma Alpha Epsilon aka SAE

You have a lot to compete with considering their sweetheart has "SAE" tattooed on her lip. Dedicated is what you are.

Phi Kappa Tau aka Phi Tau

One word: derd. The boys are there and so are you. You know when your favorite guys start blasting Spanish music, it's time for some fun. You can't wait to spend Oasis with your favorite Miami boys. Who else can say that they tailgate with a pet snake?

Phi Delta Theta aka Phi Delt

These boys are diverse and they never get old. They don't have a certain "look" and they all don't like the same things. You like to always change things up and you hate anything boring.

Zeta Beta Tau aka ZBT

You're a regular, and that means you're more comfortable than ever. ZBT is your second home and you have no problem acting like it is. Tahiti is a combination of your two favorite things: relaxing and partying at the house. You consider yourself one of the bros and you couldn't be more proud.

Don't Give Up On Sororities

Find your family.

Growing up, I always wanted to be in a sorority.

You see them portrayed in movies and on television as the coolest girls- the ones that everyone wants to be and be around. It wasn’t the popularity factor that interested me as much though, it was the closeness that these girls always exhibited. They were “sisters” and they were family. As an only child, I loved the idea of having sisters and being part of something special that was bigger than just me.

When I got to my first college, I couldn’t wait for rush to start.

I had been doing my research, and knew which sororities I could see myself being part of; I couldn’t wait to finally meet the girls that could fulfill my childhood aspiration with.

I learned quickly that it wasn’t as easy as just introducing yourself to the girls. Meeting them seemed so artificial, as if they were reading off scripts. It was evident from the beginning that they already had an idea in their head of who was joining and who was not. I was not part of this idea. This would have crushed my dreams of being in a sorority for good if I had not transferred.

At my new school I knew that the people were different- more friendly and genuine. My first semester I held out on the whole sorority thing, skeptical of the process for obvious reasons and wanting to time to adjust to my new school. I had accepted the title of a GDI, "god damn independent", and wore it with pride. As much as I was okay with this, I still knew that something was missing.

Fall of 2017, first semester of sophomore year, is when my mindset changed again. I was going through a lot of personal problems: family, love, and what felt like any other bad thing that could possibly happen to me. The allure of a group of sisters was slowly pulling me back in. I was desperate for at least some sort of stability, and I wanted a group of girl friends that I could depend on.

Soon after my curiosity was piqued one of my friends started to introduce me to some of her sorority sisters. The more sisters I met, the more I realized that I was having real conversations and making real connections. I couldn’t help but think that this was what I always envisioned a sorority being like- real.

I had never received so much support and unwavering kindness from people whom I barely even knew as soon as I joined.

For the first time in a while I felt secure, confident, and surrounded by people that truly cared about me. This feeling has only multiplied as time has gone on, and I'm not sure what I would do without my sisters. In such a short amount of time I have made friends that I can already see myself being friends with forever, and I think that's pretty amazing. No matter what preconceptions, bad experiences, or doubts that you have- give sorority life one more shot.

Behind all of the crafting and glitter, there is a second family waiting to give you all of the love that they have.

To The Girl Who Thinks She Hates Greek Life, But Hasn't Given It A Shot

When I began my freshman year of college, I thought I hated it too.

Girl, I get it. You saw that one horrifying ADPi recruitment video when you were 14 and you thought, “No thanks, not for me.” I was in the exact same boat.

I entered my freshman year giggling at the girls who dressed to the nines in 105-degree weather to impress upperclassmen in hopes they’d be invited to join their clique.

When I got an email from my now-sorority’s Recruitment Chair inviting me to a Pumpkin Painting Party in October, I laughed out loud and made fun of it with my roommate (spoiler alert: she joined too).

The only reason I showed up to paint pumpkins was because one sister went out of her way to invite me face to face. I knew then that this wasn’t a sorority who was in it for the numbers, they genuinely wanted to make me a part of their sisterhood.

So, I went. Long story short, I loved it. It wasn’t the picture of tall, skinny, blonde, white girls that I’d always had in my mind. As far as sororities go, I’d never seen one like it.

Since joining, I have made friends that I never thought I’d have. My Big (I know, a gross sorority word) is one of my best friends. I recruited my roommate and a random girl from my English class, and both of those friendships have continuously bloomed since. I have a list of 144 women that I could call at any time and say the words, “I need you,” and they’d be with me in ten minutes.

Not every sorority is like mine, but I’m convinced there is at least one like it on every campus that has Greek Life. So give it a try. Open your mind to change and invite amazing new people and experiences into your life.

If you find it isn’t for you, no harm done. At least you can say you gave it a shot.
