To the Girl Going Through Sorority Recruitment, Here Are 11 Tips and Tricks To Help You Through
Emily Brock

These are tips and tricks I learned going through recruitment as a New Member and as a sorority member!

1. Dress cute, but comfortable

No matter if you're at a small school or a large school dressing comfortable is key. The days will be long and you want to impress each sorority! So dress cute but comfortable so you're not miserable!

2. Be yourself

Don't go in being someone you're not. At the end of all of it, you'll be unhappy because you're in a place that isn't right for you because you were acting like someone else. If you like to talk, talk. If you're quiet that's OK! Just be yourself!

3. Stay true to yourself

Stay true to your beliefs, your likes, and your dislikes! This is what draws you to a sorority and how you find the one you fit into!

4. Don't be afraid to ask questions in the houses

Asking questions not only helps you find out more about the sorority but it also helps the sorority see that you are interested in them! It makes the conversation flow and everyone gets to know you on a more personal level!

5. Talk, Talk, Talk

Don't be afraid to make conversation! The houses want to get to know you and want you to feel comfortable! Yes, this is a very awkward situation but by talking it makes it easier! You'll always hear this during recruitment but the girls talking to you are just as nervous as you are!

6. Get to know the girls in your group

Here at Troy, our recruitment groups are called our Phi Chi groups, but no matter where you get to know them! Some of them will be your good friends or just familiar faces you see around campus!

7. Don't let your decision be based off of your friends

This is your decision. Do not let it be based on your friends or what others are doing! Don't go somewhere just because your friend is, it might not pay off for you in the end because you might not like it! You want to be like these beautiful ladies! ^^

8. Keep up with your schedule

Don't be late to any parties because you might not be able to go back! Attending the parties and events are imperative to keep up with your schedule.

9. Bring a rain jacket (especially if you are going to school in the south)

In the South, during fall it always rains especially in the month of August, which is when most sorority recruitments take place. Be prepared!

10. Bring snacks

You are going all day and sometimes you will not be able to go back to your dorm or get to a place to eat. Food and drink are imperative!

11. Get plenty of sleep

This week is going to be super stressful! Try to get plenty of rest and sleep because once recruitment is over, classes start and you will not have much time for sleep!

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.
