10 Items Every Girl Going Through Sorority Rush Needs In Her Purse To Survive The Week

Make this week as fun as possible for yourself.

10 Items Every Girl Going Through Sorority Rush Needs In Her Purse To Survive The Week

Rush week is highly weighed on first impressions. I think the personality of the girl overrides how she looks, but I cannot speak for all people. You want to look your best so that you can feel your best and let your personality shine. Also, the rush isn't that deep so go into it with a positive attitude and have fun!

1. Blotting pads

Don't walk up in the house looking like a potato chip. Blot the T-zone even when you think you don't need it.

2. Lipstick

Make sure it's poppin' before each house.

3. Small fan

Even if it isn't hot where your college is the chapter rooms will be. So many girls in a small space. It's nice to give yourself a nice breeze between houses.

4. Mints

NOT GUM. Don't walk into a chapter room with gum in your mouth. It's tacky and not professional. You want the girls you talk to to pay attention to what you are talking about, not the glob in the back of your mouth.

5. Umbrella

Even if the forecast says it's impossible for it to rain. Rather be safe than sorry. No one wants to walk in like a wet rat.

6. Notebook with pen

This saved me. You think you will remember each girl you talk to in each house, but you can't. There are a million things running through your head. Write the letters of the house and something you remembered. Example: Alpha Pie, girl with purple eyeliner and blonde hair, talked about dogs, really liked, 8/10.

7. Powder

Always want to make sure your face is even and the sweat hasn't taken any foundation away. A quick pat of powder and you're good as new.

8. Hair brush

Brush through that hair girl. Get them tangles out.

9. Small towel

Maybe I'm the only one who sweats a lot, but my back was drenched during rush. I would wipe my back between houses. I never wanted a girl welcoming me into the house to feel my sweaty back while walking me in.

10. Energy drink

I had a Red Bull on hand at all times during rush. A few sips before each house to help hype you up.

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.
