School: Wagner College

Organization: Tau Kappa Sigma

Tau Kappa Sigma (ΤΚΣ) is a local sorority founded on January 31, 1991, at Wagner College in Staten Island, NY. Their colors are red and gray, and their mascot is the dove. Their motto is "No one is a stranger, just a friend you haven't met yet."

Q: What was your preliminary opinion going into college about Greek Life? Did you intend to join a sorority?

A: I was really into the idea of joining a sorority all through high school. When I got to Wagner, I was a little shocked by how different Greek life was in real life versus the movies.

Q: What made you go through sorority recruitment?

A: I decided to go through recruitment Fall '16 because I was feeling like my college career was lacking something, and that something was a sisterhood.Q: Why did you choose the organization that you did?

A: I chose Tau Kappa Sigma because I felt at home there. I had met a few of the girls through classes we shared and extracurricular activities, and I felt like I fit in the best there.

Q: What was your bid day like?

A: My bid day felt very surreal. As I was running out of the Foundation Lobby to the TKS girls, I was thinking to myself, "Wow what did I just get myself into," and as I was being shirted, there was cheering and singing; I couldn't have been happier with my decision.

Q: What are the most important things that being a member of your sorority has taught you?

A: The most important thing I've learned from my sorority is that you can find happiness where you're least expecting it. I can be unapologetically me and know that I'm accepted for that.

Q: What advice would you give to girls going through recruitment?

A: Don't be afraid to meet new people and express who you are. You won't find your home if you're not being 100% you.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.
