Recruitment is definitely an experience, but a great one. Here are five things I wish I knew before I joined the Greek life community.

Express Your Own Style

During every round of recruitment, you will be asked to dress with professionalism and it becomes fancier every day you're there. It is extremely important to feel comfortable in what you are wearing. The right sorority will accept you no matter the style you present, but make sure it fits within the professional guidelines.

Keep An Open Mind

Some sororities may surprise you in all that they have to offer. It is perfectly fine to not know anything about greek life beforehand... it can even make the process more fun! Pay attention to the bigger picture... if you feel comfortable and happy, that is the place for you.

It Is OK To Be Hesitant

Decisions about which houses to cut on your list can be extremely difficult. You may love different people from each sorority but realize that certain houses as a whole are not for you. They won't hate you afterward, they'll likely still want you in their life.

You Will Become Great In Interviews

After many rounds of conversations and answering questions, you will likely get better in your interview skills. It will truly show you what you value most in your life and you will become even more confident in who you are. Even if you are not loving a house you're talking to, still, maintain a positive attitude and realize it is just more interview practice.

Take Care Of Yourself

This can be an extremely stressful time and can hurt your body if you're not careful. Making sure you obtain enough sleep, eating healthy and resting your voice when you can all help in preventing illness and negativity. Talking to your group leaders can also help with anxiety or unhappy emotions.

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.
