Hello Potential New Member,
Before I say anything, I want you to take a breath. You will get through these next two weeks! I know right now it seems extremely scary, hard to understand, and overwhelming. However, it is not as intense as it seems. Everyone wants you to enjoy this time and really feel out where you want to be. The girls recruiting you don't want to scare you; they want to get to know you.
If you think about it, a lot of recruitment is just having a conversation with another girl. This is something you do most likely every day of your life. It is nothing new or frightening! You most likely will have to talk about yourself a lot. So, start thinking of some fun facts that you would like to talk about.
I wouldn't talk about your opinions about other chapters with your friends. You never know what they are thinking and you should always stay true to your gut. If a friend disagrees with you, it might shift your thinking. You want to stay as much in your own thoughts as possible because this decision is very personal. Everyone ends up where they are meant to be. As all sorority girls say, "trust the system."
You should be excited and not worried about this process. This process is the beginning of a whole new chapter in your college experience and life! Being a little anxious is normal and totally expected, but once you start, those jitters will disappear before you know it. This journey will bring new friends and memories. It will be something you will always remember.
YOU GOT THIS. YOU WILL BE GREAT. Good luck and have fun!
