Seniors, Enjoy Your Last Recruitment

It's not as horrible as you think.

Seniors, Enjoy Your Last Recruitment
Taylor Brock

As the school year begins to show it's face once again, so does the world of sorority recruitment. Many long hours will be spent at the house practicing and perfecting chants, with no end in sight. Don't even get me started on actual recruitment week. Running on basically zero hours of sleep, having to look picture perfect every day, and still trying to keep up with classes and homework. The whole process sometimes seems like it is unnecessary, and as your years as an active go on, it becomes more and more daunting.

The thing is, it's true, a lot of parts of recruitment suck. Yes, you're not sleeping enough and are tired of having to be peppy for hours on end. But, believe it or not, you'll probably miss it one day. Before you roll your eyes and give a resounding "as if", hear me out. I don't actually think you're going to long for the endless days and sweaty hallways filled with overwhelming chants, but take a second and think about what recruitment is really all about.

It's likely that as a senior you won't even be doing much recruiting, meaning that you already aren't having to do a whole lot. So, take this week to take a step back and think about why you really joined your chapter in the first place. Recruitment and all the practices that come with it is literally just one long excuse to hang out with all the girls you've become best friends with over the past three years. On top of that, you're already forced to wear cute outfits anyways so it's also the perfect excuse to take some extra cute Instagram pics. Best of all, you have your Bid Day to look forward to.

Make the most of the time you have left with your sisters. Formals are fun, but there's no other time that you'll bond with the girls around you than during the week of recruitment. You won't even know how much you miss it until it's all over.

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.

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.
