Sorority Life As Told By 'Gilmore Girls'

Being a member of a sorority comes with hundreds of new sisters, fun and responsibility. Our organizations are filled with love, laughter, highs and lows. Until they're in it, no one really understands it. The lovely ladies of "Gilmore Girls" depict sorority life like no other.

1. Grades come first.

You have a social Thursday, but a giant test Friday morning? See ya next time, girl. Your sisters will totally understand.

2. We're foodies.

Movies show sororities as shallow girls who never stop watching what they eat. What it's actually like: Hey me and 30 of my closest gal pals are on our way to see how much cheese dip we can eat in one sitting. We're college kids, if there's food, we will be there.

3. Caffeine, caffeine, caffeine.

We can't be this involved, have good grades, and still have free time without a little boost from our favorite coffee shop.

4. Hating the stereotype.

We are not the stereotype. I have over 200 sisters, and the typical "sorority girl" stereotype doesn't apply to any of them.

5. Have I introduced you to my boyfriend? His name is "the library."

Can't find us? There is a strong chance we're in the library studying, eating or both. It's our home away from home.

6. We help each other be the best versions of ourselves.

Follow your dreams; go on an adventure; tell that boy you like him; take a risk. We'll encourage you through it all.

7. We can't handle breaks without each other.

"OK, we have three months of not being at school together for the summer. That means I have over 90 days of keeping it together without you all."

8. My big? You mean my mom?

You only think you're going off to college without parental supervision! Your big is there to guide you, help you, and be a nurturing figure throughout this whole college process.

9. We're each others' biggest fans.

Whether you need someone to go over notes with or listen to you cry and give you advice through the bad times, your sisters will be there. We all just want to see each other succeed.

Thank you to the ladies of Delta Zeta, for showing me what it's like to really be in a sorority. (And thank you to Lorelai and Rory, of course, for being awesome.)

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.

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.
