A Love Letter To My Sorority Sisters, As Told By Gossip Girl

Everything I wish I could say every day.

A Love Letter To My Sorority Sisters, As Told By Gossip Girl

Sorority Sister here! Your one and only source into the fantastic lives of your University panhellenic chapters. Who am I? That's a secret I'll never tell...

I'm just kidding, we all know my name is at the bottom of the screen. Here's to the sorority sisters who we love so dearly, and who we would all count as the Blair to our Serena (or vice versa).

Dear Sweet Sisters,

Thank you for making our sorority feel like home from day one. They say a home is not a place, but the people in it. You all truly are the definition of that quote.

Thank you for putting a smile on my face when I’m not having the best day. Thank you for all the random hugs and sweet smiles. Thank you for giving everyone a spot, and thank you for recognizing that everyone is unique. Thank you for being so supportive of everything that I do. Thank you for celebrating me when I achieve even the smallest things and thank you for dropping whatever you’re doing to comfort me when I fail.

Thank you for inspiring me each day to be a better person and a better sister. Thank you for challenging the stereotypes, and for standing up for everyone in not just our chapter, but every Panhellenic chapter. Thank you for loving me when I’m in a grumpy mood, for crying with me when I’m upset, and for laughing with me when I do something extremely embarrassing.

Thank you for staying up to watch movies with me, even ones that you wouldn’t consider your ‘genre.’ Thank you for giving me rides when I don’t have a car and thank you for offering to walk me home when it’s late at night. Thank you for critiquing the text I sent to my crush that asked him to the next date event, and thank you for telling me I can do better when I find out that he’s not interested in being more than friends.

Thank you for complaining about the rain one second, and then dancing in it with me the next. Thank you for the car rides with the windows down, screaming Hannah Montana songs out the window. Thank you for turning anyone’s day upside down, for the random Starbucks runs late at night, and for the study breaks that turn out to be longer than actual studying. Thank you for the high fives after getting a great grade on a test, and the ice cream runs for when I don’t do as well.

Thank you for looking out for me. Thank you for all of the advice, and all of the ‘it’s going to be okay’s'. Thank you for listening to me when I need to talk, and for telling me to hush when I’m stressed. Thank you for letting me borrow your favorite shorts, and for forgiving me when I give them back a year later.

Thank you for telling me how capable I am of anything I dream of doing. Thank you for caring. Thank you for being kind. Thank you for being supportive. Thank you for loving me.

Thank you for being you.

You know I love you...


A grateful sister

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
