Sign Up For Sorority Recruitment And You'll Gain These 10 Amazing Things

6. "It's not four years, it's for life"

Marisa Salice

Because it is that time of year again! If you've been looking for a sign to rush, this is it!

1. Friendships that really do last


Making friends has been something I have always struggled with. When I began my freshman year at EMU, a university that only about four kids from my graduating class attend, I was completely terrified. After going through structured recruitment, the new member period, and now serving as an active, I know that I have made bonds with my sisters that will last a lifetime.

2. A genuine support system

Whenever I am having a hard time I know that there is a sister that will have my back. A sister has always been there to talk, to work out problems, and to be my shoulder to cry on.

3. Leadership opportunities


Joining a Greek organization opens up many different leadership opportunities that will help craft you into a servant-leader! Definitely run for leadership roles because they are also are GREAT resume builders.

4. Community service opportunities


Every sorority has a philanthropy that they advocate and raise money for. In addition to philanthropy events, there are multiple service events that allow you and your sisters to give back to the community. Service has always been my favorite events with my sisters.

5. Your GPA will improve! 


Many studies have proven that students apart of Greek organizations maintain a higher GPA than those who are not. The main reason for this is because each chapter has a GPA expectation, sisters must meet the requirement or above. This also allows for many "study buddy" opportunities at the house or the library! If I am not studying by myself, I am always studying with a sister!

6. "It's not four years, it's for life"


Yes, this is such a cheesy saying but it is totally true. Your sisters will become some of your closet friends and future bridesmaids one day!

7.  Networking

There are a vast amount of alumnae from Greek organizations that are always willing to help out active members. Whether it is for a job opportunity or an internship across the country, there will be an alumnae from your organization willing to help you out.

8. Big/Little

This is by far my favorite part of sorority life. Your big becomes your mentor to all things regarding sorority and college life, but with your big comes your entire family line! I have no idea what I would do without my GG-Big, G-Big, Aunt, and Big!

9. T-Shirts & t-shirts & t-shirts

After joining a sorority your closet will be popping with new apparel! It always seems that with new apparel comes photoshoots with your sisters, which are always so much fun!

10. A home away from home

Joining an a Greek letter organization really gave me a true "home away from home". I am the definition of a home body, but I was able to break out of my shell thanks to Greek Life. My sorority sisters have become influential people that I cannot picture my life without.

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.
