The 9 Stages Of Bringing Boys To Sorority Date Parties

The 9 Stages Of Bringing Boys To Sorority Date Parties

"I know we just met, but want to go to my date party tonight?"

Date parties are every sorority girl's favorite event, but also the most dreaded. It's hard to decide who to bring and if they would even be a fun date. Most of the time I'm scrambling last minute to find someone who won't be too drunk, would buy me drinks at the bar, and be fun to dance with but understanding when my friends and I run off to the bathroom.

Sometimes I feel like finding the perfect date is impossible, probably because I put my standards too high.

Dear Big, I Hope My Little Is Just Like You

In every way possible.

Dear Big,

The time has come where I finally get to take a little sister. I have been reminiscing about all of our memories this past year and I can't wait for the memories we are going to have as a family. I'll never forget first hanging out with you and thinking you were so cool. I was so nervous you weren't going to want me as a little, but I'll never forget crying tears of joy on Big/Little Reveal Day when I found that you were my big.

We are basically the same person. We have the same sense of humor, the same fears, the same interests, and the same, fun personality. We've shared so many memories together that I will hold in my heart forever.

I hope my little is just like you.

I hope she is just as wild and crazy as you. I hope she is hardworking and dedicated to what she loves just like you. I hope she is sweet and kind, yet stern and serious just like you. I hope her and I have the same special relationship that you and I do.

I hope she can lift me up when I'm down and bring a smile to my face. I hope she trusts me with her secrets and becomes one of my closest, most special friends. I hope she is all the amazing things that you are to me.

I hope she makes the most positive difference in this sorority like you have and I cannot wait to see her fly. Thank you for being the best big in the world and I hope I can be just as great of a big as you are. I can't wait to see which new member will be joining the fam, but she's definitely in for a fun ride.

I love you tons, Big. Keep being the amazing you that you are.

Much love,

Your Little

To The Girl Who Doesn't Feel That Rush Is 'Worth Her Time'

Rushing and recruitment is sometimes a bit overwhelming, but the end product is so worth it.

"What really is rush?"

"Is it even worth my time?"

"Will the girls in Greek life even want me?"

First off, there are too many “what-ifs” to count in this situation. Rush is hectic and wild and at Indiana, it’s “extra.” Visiting 22 houses and picking one in a span of a week and a half is hard. It’s cold and wearing heels to walk through the snow is so stupid. It is so easy to assume girls would not like you because the Greek system seems so picky and there are around two thousand girls who rush and only nine hundred get bids.

The “what-ifs” exist, trust me I know. I struggled to decide whether or not to rush. I didn’t want to go through it if I was going to come out the other side completely empty-handed. The whole process relies on you to be outgoing and charismatic and for many people that is hard.

But it is worth it in the end.

You have to remember there are other factors going into this argument.

You walk around in the cold and stand at the entrance to the door for 10 to 20 minutes to get into their beautiful house you’d never get to see otherwise.

You talk to over sixty girls and make new friends and find connections you never knew existed.

You go to 22 houses to find the one you can’t wait to call home.

If you are like me and are on the fence about deciding whether or not to rush at IU or any other school for that matter, know that you are not alone as well. Many girls go into rush not knowing what to expect at all. You don’t have to worry about going in blind, you have a Rho Gamma and many other girls to back you up. You can do it and quite honestly, what have you got to lose? It’s the choice between finding a forever home and just not getting in and in the end, finding a home is worth the risk. It was for me.
