17 Red And White Wines That Sum Up Your Sorority’s Vibe Better Than Its Actual Colors

Bold and flavorful, or light and sweet... there's a bottle for everyone.

What does a sorority girl like more than chicken nuggets and Starbucks? From my experience, there's only one correct answer: wine. Whether it is a pink Zinfandel or exquisite Pinot Grigio, every srat girl has her go-to wine. Odds are, if you have a srat girl as a best friend, you know what her favorite wine is.

Without further ado, if the sororities you know and love were bottles of wine:

1. Alpha Chi Omega: Malbec Varieties

Malbec is a safe bet to be a fun wine that everyone enjoys. You really can't go wrong with Malbec wines (Alpha Chi Omega's) because they are consistently great.

2. Alpha Delta Pi: Beringer Varieties

Beringer was the first winery in Napa Valley, California. ADPi was the first secret Greek society for women. Appropriately matched, and consistently in great taste.

3. Alpha Gamma Delta: Franzia

Alpha Gam's motto is "Inspire Women. Impact the World." There's nobody more inspiring than a girl drinking Franzia, because you know she's been working her tail off to impact the world and has had a hell of a day.

4. Alpha Kappa Alpha: Barefoot Pink Sparkling

Barefoot pink and bubbly is eye-catching and wholesomely sweet, much like the ladies of AKA.

5. Alpha Omicron Pi: Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon

AOPi's are like that really great bottle of Cabernet you just keep going back to. So well-rounded, bold but not too bold, and a great compliment for any situation.

6. Alpha Phi: Ménage à Trois Gold Chardonnay

Alpha Phi's are unapologetically bold and voluptuous like this gold chardonnay. Whether it's wine or the sorority girl, both are likely to stand independently to make their impact.

7. Chi Omega: Burrowing Owl Merlot

This was the easiest association. Why? Because like Merlot, I've never met a Chi O I didn't like (oh and the owl is their mascot too).

8. Delta Delta Delta: Barolo Red

Ahhh, the Barolo Red, one of Italy's best exports. Tri Delts are the fashionistas, and so is this particular red blend. They appropriately fit because of their exclusivity and refined look-- why yes, this is Italian, and yes I know you're jealous.

9. Delta Gamma: Côtes de Provence Rosé

DG's, synonymous with the pink and blue, are great examples of this $9 Rosé from Aldi. DG's are the kind of wine that won't think they're better than you. But don't be deceived by their outward appearances because there's a bold flavor on the inside.

10. Kappa Delta: Villa Solare Pinot Grigio

Pinot Grigio's are known for being refreshing and crisp. Every KD I know is always energetic and upbeat, much like a good Grigio is a necessary refresher when life gets you down.

11. Gamma Phi Beta: Blue Moon Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir drinkers are loyal to Pinot Noir and Pinot Noir only. They swear by it. Just like you can swear by a Gamma Phi's loyalty and friendship. (Also, only Gamma Phi's are this obsessed with a crescent moon).

12. Kappa Alpha Theta: Moscato d'Asti

Theta's and Moscato: undeniably the sweetest of them all. Gold-labeled, or hearts of gold, they are one in the same.

13. Delta Zeta: Cryptic Red Blend

Cryptic by nature, but well-intended in heart. DZ's are good at saying just enough, but not too much. Also, odds are a DZ knows a girl, who knows a girl, who knows that girl's best friend, who can find anything out about anyone. Watch out.

14. Kappa Kappa Gamma: Ponzi Riesling

Intense and full of fruity flavor, Kappas and riesling go together like eggs and bacon. Each Reisling is unpredictable with the flavor that it packs, much like you never know what you're going to get into with a Kappa (although it's almost always a good thing).

15. Phi Mu: Bestheim Gewürztraminer

For Phi Mu, it's only appropriate that they are a wine that resonates with the same air of expertise as they do. A lot of people would misinterpret Gewürztraminer as being posh or overly fancy, but in reality, it's a wine of integrity and dependability because of its aromaticity. Here's to you, Phi Mu and Gewürztraminer (don't ask me how to pronounce it).

16. Pi Beta Phi: Revelry Cabernet Franc

Pi Phi's are the adventurous type — you go to a Cabernet Franc because you're tired of seeing the same old Cabernet Sauvignon. If a Pi Phi can convince you to break out of your comfort zone, it's the best decision you could possibly make.

17. Zeta Tau Alpha: Fleur du Cap Semillon

The Semillon is the most ambitious of all wines: it can be zesty, dry, sweeter, and any variety of bodied. ZTAs strive to be the best at what they are doing, making sure to ensure their Alpha attitude when they enter the room. They would definitely agree with the sentiment "save the best for last."

End disclaimer: As with all of my articles, remember that this is well-intended with good humor.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
