Greek of the Week: Tee Smith

A close-up look at the best of MTSU's Greek life

Greek of the Week: Tee Smith

Tee Smith is easily one of the most recognizable people in MTSU’s Greek community. She was nominated by a handful of people in different organizations who all pointed out the same positive qualities. Tee is a vivacious, outgoing person who would give you the shirt off of her back. One of the nominations even said Tee doesn’t get near the amount of recognition for the work she does. It is just because of her kindness and humility that Tee has earned the title of Greek of the Week.

Greek of the Week

Name: Tee Smith

Chapter: Alpha Chi Omega

Hometown: McMinnville, Tenn.

Year: Junior

Major: Organizational communication

Career Goals: I want to work for Alpha Chi Omega’s headquarters, and travel around the country assisting chapters with the recruitment process.

What is your favorite part of Greek life?: My favorite part has to be Greek Week!

What position do you hold in your organization?: Right now I hold the position of Step Show co-chair.

What is your favorite MTSU tradition?: My favorite MTSU tradition is Fight Song! It’s always fun to see what the different chapters have been working on, and seeing the different ideas people had. It’s also just a fun, healthy competition to have between all of the Greeks.

What is the most embarrassing thing that has happened to you in college?: Like everyone else, I’m guilty of taking the Raider Express when I’m really just not feeling the walk. Well, one time, I saw the bus, but I was still a good distance away. I thought if maybe I ran toward the bus it would stop and wait for me. It didn’t.

How has your chapter helped you grow into the leader that you are today?: My chapter has helped me become so much more confident in speaking in public and voicing my opinion. So now, when it comes to giving a speech or a presentation for class, I go into it feeling so much better about myself.

Do you have any advice for students who are looking to get involved and take on leadership roles?: My advice would be to dive in head first! Just make sure that you are not taking on more than you can handle because it will take its toll on you, and not for the better. Stick with the amount you can handle, and maybe gradually pick up more if you can or want to!

Do you have someone you would like to nominate for Greek of the Week? Send me an email at with their name, fraternity or sorority, and an explanation of why you think they deserve the title of Greek of the Week!

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.
