35 Ways Being In A Sorority Changes Your Life
Madison Sepanik

Being in a sorority is so much more than greek letters, boys and parties. Watching movies change the way people see us is one of the hardest things about being involved. Since joining and branding myself (kidding, my god) I have had the best time of my life and here are just a few of the reasons why.

1. You meet a variety of girls you would never meet otherwise.

2. You always have a study buddy.

3. Someone always has cute clothes you can borrow.

4. Your grades go up.

5. So many new gym partners.

6. You always have something to do.

7. Someone always has your back.

8. People to take your surveys for class.

9. A social media hype team.

10. You learn conflict management skills.

15. People who share the same interests as you.

16. Roommates you actually like.

17. The best slumber parties (and wine nights).

18. Tutors. There is always a sister who is good at the things you need help with.

19. Role models and mentorship can be found in every chapter.

20. Help with time management and health and wellness.

21. Formals!

22. People to encourage you to buy the cute thing you want but really don’t need.

23. Constant travel partners.

24. An infinite number of new experiences.

25. Volunteering and making a difference become a more prominent part of your life.

26. You have more exposure to different cultures, ideas, and individuals.

27. Really cute photo shoot opportunities.

28. A lot of cute sorority related crafts and apparel to add to your room.

29. Being part of a community.

30. A home away from home.

31. A support system like no other.

32. Someone to jump your car or pick you up when you need a ride.

33. Always someone to listen, advise and encourage.

34. A good opportunity to grow as an individual in a safe environment.

35. Lifelong sisterhood and friendship.

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 Musical.ly 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.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."

In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
