What to do and what to completely and entirely avoid.

Sorority Recruitment Survival Guide

Recruitment week can be stressful, but here are some tips to help you through what may seem like a scary week (it's not really that scary!)

DO: Be yourself. You want to surround yourself with girls like you- the only way you can find the sorority for you is by being true to yourself.

DON'T: Act like you are someone you're not. At the end of recruitment, you'll regret it.

DO: Look your best. It'll make you feel more confident! SLAY LADIES!!

DON'T: Roll out of bed.

DO: Wear deodorant. Wherever you go to school, it's probably going to be hot during recruitment. You're going to be running from house to house and sweating a lot! Make sure you smell good and fresh!

DON'T: Wear perfume. Too much perfume in one place can be overwhelming. You want to smell fresh- not like your going out.

DO: Listen intently to what the girls have to say. You want to engage in the conversation and learn as much as you can about each sorority!

DON'T: Be afraid to ask questions. There is so much to know, and it's hard to learn everything about a sorority in a short amount of time. If you have anything on your mind, don't be afraid to ask. I guarantee the girls will be happy to answer!

DO: Take care of yourself during recruitment week. It is going to be a long week. Make sure you eat healthily and get sleep. The last thing you want to happen during recruitment week is getting sick.

DON'T: Be afraid to drink the drinks at the houses. This may seem like an obvious statement, but trust me, nerves may get the best of you. However, the drinks are there for a reason. Drink them and stay hydrated- especially if it's hot!

DO: Have fun! It is fun and exciting to meet so many new women! You may find a really good friend out of recruitment, and it is kind of fun to see how each sorority is different!

DON'T: Have a closed mind during recruitment. Go into each house with an open mind and maximize your options. Trust me, the system works, and you won't be disappointed with any house you get. Each sorority is amazing at every school, and your experience is what you make it!

Best of Luck!

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.
