I've Made Incredible Friends Without Being A Sorority Girl

Deep down, I knew I wasn't the type of girl to be in a sorority, so I decided to try making friends the old fashioned way.

I've Made Incredible Friends Without Being A Sorority Girl

I have made friends in college without the help of a sorority! I've met people through class or through tinder or at house shows. Greek life is not the only way to make friends! There are many options and finding someone with common interests is the BEST way to make a friend.

I remember when I was a freshman at university and absolutely TERRIFIED of what was going to happen. I wasn't sure I would make any friends here, and I seriously debated joining a sorority in the hopes of finding a sisterhood of girls I belonged with. Deep down, I knew I wasn't the type of girl to be in a sorority (not that being in a sorority is a BAD thing), so I decided to try making friends the old fashioned way. Within the first couple of months, I had made some wonderful friends.

One of my newer friends at the time had invited me to a basketball game where we ended up meeting two really cool ladies, who became my first Eugene friends. None of us were involved in sororities, yet we still made our own friend circle.

My point is that you can make friends in college without being involved in Greek life! If you're not the kind of person who is going to do well in Greek life, try making friends another way. Maybe through some common interests!

I've made a lot of friends within the Eugene music community since house shows are where I spend the majority of my time. This exposure to the scene has helped me meet some incredible people and it's been HUGE in helping me make friends in college. Going to new shows and talking to new people has been the most effective way of me making friends outside of Greek life.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
