The Rush Of Prepping For Sorority Recruitment, As Told By Elle Woods

What, like it's hard?

The Rush Of Prepping For Sorority Recruitment, As Told By Elle Woods

August and September are typically the busiest months for college women in Greek life. It almost seems like every little decision or consideration comes back to the fact that soon we'll be welcoming new sisters. I know Elle Woods would be able to pull together an amazing recruitment, so let's turn to her to see what the month leading up to new sisters is like!

1. Planning decorations and themes


She's not afraid of failing. Delta Nu would have the best themes!

2. Choosing a lipstick to match your recruitment dress


Pink lipstick all the way. For any dress.

3. Needing to get away from the craziness after a long day with your sisters


For Elle, it's chocolates. For me, it'd be pizza.

4. "Are you stressed and overwhelmed?"


Luckily, you have other people to dump your stress on.

5. Getting sassy when picking out your recruitment dress


Nope, not taking it.

6. Listening to other's past recruitment horror stories


It's always good to make sure the awkward doesn't happen again.

7. When people finally get the hang of "bumping"


For those who don't know, "bumping" is a term for transitioning between two sisters when talking to a PNM. Woohoo!

8. Practicing house tours


If only we were all so confident.

9. The important pep talks over spirit week


Faith in yourself = confidence transferred to your new sisters!

Happy recruitment prep-month, everyone!

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.
