Dear Rho Chi, Here's The Thank You Letter You Deserve, But Probably Never Got

Although you're really only under their grasp for a week, your Rho Chi's have the potential to be a mentor and friend for life. So whether it was running away from them on Bid Day to your new home or through a disappointing phone call in your room, if you never got a chance to say thank you, this one is for you.

Dear Rho Chi, Here's The Thank You Letter You Deserve, But Probably Never Got

Dear Rho Chi,

It may seem a little much since it was only a week, but for some of us, rush has been a dream waiting to happen our whole lives. For those growing up in the South, it's making friends from across the country and finding those people that make for a perfect home away from home, and that includes you. From playing songs on the stereo and jamming out on the hot breaks between houses, or always having a smile on your face when we entered and exited the houses, thank you is not enough.

Personally, I've gone through rush twice and had two different Rho Chis in my small group and 10 in my groups total. Every PNM and friend that I've talked to said they probably could not have gotten through the week without the aid and guidance of their Rho Chi. Going to dinner after a long day on the row, even though it's not required, just because they want to socialize with you and answer all your 50 questions about sororities and the university or offering buying you Starbucks and talk after they had to make that dreaded phone call early in the morning that you got dropped means more than you know. So thanks Rho Chi, for taking off your letters and giving them to us for a week, we can't wait to maybe one day give back to rushees like you gave to us.


Your forever PNM

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
