Sorority Girls Are More Than Just The Typical Stereotype Or Else I Wouldn't Be In One

My sorority has blessed me with many opportunities

Sorority Girls Are More Than Just The Typical Stereotype Or Else I Wouldn't Be In One
Cassie Nichols

Let me start this article by saying, I’m not here to tell you to join a sorority in college.

I’m simply here to say that sorority girls are much more than just pillow fights, parties, and paint on a bunch of glittery faces. If you had asked me the summer before I entered college, I would have never dreamed that I would be in a sorority today. I was committed to being a college athlete and didn’t even think it was socially acceptable to be in a sorority and play soccer. I felt like those were two different worlds that should not be mixed up.

But I was wrong.

I am an exception in my sorority because I did not go through formal recruitment like most of the girls who are in my pledge class. During my first semester of college, I was a strictly a soccer player and didn’t focus on much besides athletics, schoolwork, and an occasional social life.

As the year went on, I wanted to be more involved on campus. I met a group of girls who were curious as to why I wasn’t in a sorority. My instant response was “Because I play soccer.” They began telling me that the two would not conflict, especially in the spring, and encouraged me to go to an event at the house and meet some of the girls.

So I decided to go.

From the minute I stepped foot into the white mansion across from campus I was warmly welcomed by everyone and I was very surprised by the different personalities under one roof. Not only was almost everyone involved in some other activity at the University, but there was even a couple of other athletes who I could relate to tremendously. After that trip to the house, I knew right away that I had found my home away from home in Delta Gamma.

I sit here writing this article exactly one year later from when I joined. I had no idea that within the last year I would have met my best friends or taken on a leadership director's position. I now have a constant support system of 85 sisters and I could not be happier. I have my sorority to thank for blessing me with of extraordinary opportunities and all of those to come.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
