Greek of the Week: Emily Gay

Greek of the Week: Emily Gay

This week's Greek of the Week goes to none other than the infamous Emily Gay. A member of Tri Delta since last fall, Emily is a sophomore at the University of Iowa. She is studying managerial business and will begin this track next semester in fall 2015.

Emily is from Chicago, just like everybody else on the campus, and hails from Lake Zurich. She chose the University of Iowa for their well known business program, and also for the location -- only three hours from home.

Along with the other 16 percent of the undergraduates who join Greek life, Emily decided to take the plunge. "I went Greek because I wanted to be a part of something through college. My mom was in a sorority and she always talked so highly of it so I decided to give it a chance. My goal was to make a solid group of friends, and hey the boys can't hurt."

When asked why she chose Tridelt, Gay said, "Because I could really see myself hanging out with the girls. I liked other houses too, but there were so many girls that seemed like me that I couldn't not join." So on that fateful day when Gay opened her bid card and saw those three triangles, she was beyond excited. "I went through the recruitment process with a ton of girls and we all liked different houses, but my roommate and our other good friend all picked Tridelt and that's when I knew it was the house for me."

This semester, Gay has the position of Correspondence within the Officers Council of her sorority. In this position, she helps plan events for the chapter along with the VP of Public Relations. Just recently, Gay helped coordinate Tridelt's annual Easter Egg Hunt with Iowa City's Mom's Blog. In addition, when it comes times for the holidays such as Christmas or even Valentine's Day, if your chapter receives a gift basket full of candy and a card, you can thank Gay herself. She puts together gifts for chapters every couple months, wishing them well.

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.

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
