If The Characters From 'The Office' Were In Your Sorority

If The Characters From 'The Office' Were In Your Sorority

The only thing more exciting than Pretzel Day

Hands down 'The Office' is the funniest television show that I have ever seen. I’ve actually watched the series in its entirety about four times. After watching it over and over again, I’ve become kind of an expert on the show and feel as if I know the characters on a personal level. So personal in fact, that I actually thought about how each of the characters would fit into my life, more specifically my sorority life.

1. Kelly Kapoor

Kelly would be the sister that knows everything about everyone. Your boyfriend just broke up with you? Yeah, Kelly would know about it the week before it actually happened. Kaitlyn and Shannon aren’t talking to each other? Kelly would know when and why it happened probably before either one of them even knew what was going on. Although you would want to hate her, you would keep her around just so you could always be in the know.

2. Toby Flenderson

Toby would be that senior who's been in the sorority all four years of his college career. He would be the one constantly reminding everyone about how the sorority was run back when he first joined and how it was “so much better” than the way it is now. I can almost guarantee that he would hold the risk management position for his chapter. Although everyone would be secretly counting down the days until he graduates, the chapter would miss his mothering presence. He would be the sister to call if you needed someone responsible and sober to drive you home or to just help navigate you throughout college.

3. Meredith Palmer

Need moves? Meredith would be the sister to hit up if you wanted to know which fraternity was having a party or which nightclub was serving the best drinks. Her inappropriate (yet funny) remarks would help make chapter meetings not so boring and her confidence would help inspire others to become more comfortable in their own skin. Bonus: the Executive Board would be so focused on taming Meredith that you would be able to get away with practically anything.

4. Dwight K. Schrute

If Dwight joined a sorority, he would be a contributing reason as to why people think sororities are cults. He would be the member that spent his whole life dreaming about being in a sorority and when it came time for him to accept a bid, he’d let it go to his head. He would know absolutely everything there is to know (and probably more than any member would ever want to know) about his organization and often brag about it to others. All of Dwight’s belongings would somehow be affiliated with his sorority and he would never shut up about how much he loves being involved in Greek life.

5. Michael Scott

Michael Scott would be the ideal sorority girl! He would be the sister that joined for all the right reasons. His loving presence would help unite the sorority together and help strengthen the overall sisterhood. He would be the shoulder to lean on in tough times and the one holding your hair back after celebrating the good times.

Unfortunately, these characters aren’t real and if they were real, I don’t know if they would necessarily leave Dunder Mifflin to join a sorority. However, a girl can dream, can’t she?!

What Your Hogwarts House Says About You

Get yourself sorted and find out where you belong in the world of witchcraft and wizardry.

Sorting at Hogwarts is a big deal. Being sorted into a house is essentially being placed into a family while you are away from home learning about witchcraft and wizardry. Your house is made up of the people you will live with, go to classes with, play Quidditch with and everything in between. You basically spend 24/7 with them. Your Hogwarts house is your home away from home.

When you get sorted into a house, it is based on your personality traits. The people in your house are typically like-minded people who display the same characteristics as you.

When you’re a first year at Hogwarts, the minute you set foot in the castle you are swept into the Great Hall to have the ancient Sorting Hat placed on your head. This Sorting Hat decides which “family” you’ll be spending your seven years with.

For some, it is very obvious which house they will be in, due to certain personality traits they possess. For others, they may exemplify traits that fit a multitude of houses and are uncertain where they may end up.

To find out where you belong, you can take the official "Harry Potter" Sorting Hat quiz at Pottermore.com. For all you muggles out there, these are the characteristics that the houses possess and what your house says about you:

Gryffindor: The house of the brave, loyal, courageous, adventurous, daring and chivalrous. Those who stand up for others are typically Gryffindors. Brave-hearted is the most well-known Gryffindor characteristic, and Gryffindors are also known for having a lot of nerve.

Gryffindors are people who hold a multitude of qualities alongside the ones listed, making them a very well-rounded house. People who are Gryffindors are often people who could fit nicely into another house but choose to tell the sorting hat they want Gryffindor (there's that bravery). "Do what is right" is the motto Gryffindors go by.

Being a Gryffindor means that you're probably the adventurous and courageous friend, and you are usually known for doing what is right.

Ravenclaw: The house is known for their wisdom, intelligence, creativity, cleverness and knowledge. Those who value brains over brawn can be found here. Ravenclaws often tend to be quite quirky as well. "Do what is wise" is the motto they strive to follow.

Though Ravenclaws can be know-it-alls sometimes, they most likely do know what the wisest decision is.

If you are known for being the quirky friend, the smartest in the group or just great at making wise decisions, you're definitely a Ravenclaw.

Hufflepuff: This house values hard work, dedication, fair play, patience, and loyalty. Hufflepuff’s are known for being just and true. "Do what is nice" is their motto.

Hufflepuff is known as the “nice house” and believes strongly in sparing peoples feelings and being kind. This is not to say that Hufflepuffs aren't smart or courageous. Hufflepuffs just enjoy making others happy and tend to be more patient towards people.

If you ever find that you are too nice for your own good and cannot bear to hurt someone’s feelings, congratulations, you are a Hufflepuff.

Slytherin: This is the house of the cunning, prideful, resourceful, ambitious, intelligent, and determined. Slytherin's love to be in charge and crave leadership. "Do what is necessary" is the motto of this house.

Slytherin is a fairly well-rounded house, similar to the other houses. They are loyal to those that are loyal to them just as Gryffindors are and are intelligent as Ravenclaws.

Slytherin house as a whole is not evil, despite how many dark wizards come out of this house. That is merely based on the choices of those wizards (so if your friend is a Slytherin, don’t judge, it doesn’t mean they are mean people). Slytherins do, however, have a tendency to be arrogant or prideful. This is most likely due to the fact that everyone in Slytherin is exceedingly proud to be there.

What Hogwarts house you’re in says a lot about the person you are, the traits you possess and how you may act in some situations. But in the end, your house is really just your home that is always there for you. Always.
