The Worst Girls You Meet In College

Sorority girls aren't the worst people on campus; these girls are.

The Worst Girls You Meet In College

Co-author: Sarah Schrader, Zeta Tau Alpha

Sorority girls get a bad rap.

Thanks to ABC Family's "Greek" and Luke Bryan, most people think that, in order to be in a sorority, you have to be a dumb blonde who is obsessed with glitter and drinks Pinot Grigio out of a bedazzled bitch goblet in the middle of calculus class.

While being pretty and drunk will probably help you get through college, it's not what sorority life is all about. Sororities also spend a lot of time doing community service work (the actual kind, not the court ordered kind) and planning philanthropy events. Of course, no one talks about this aspect of Greek Life because it's boring and wouldn't attract attention. No one wants to read a story about a group of sorority girls organizing a clothing drive. They want to read about hazing, scandal and human suffering. So sorority girls end up with a reputation for being drunk, promiscuous, mean girls with Daddy's credit card and a fridge full of Franzia and Slimfast.

But somewhere in whatever little college town you live in, there are girls far, far worse than sorority girls. You walk among them, you live as neighbors, you hold their hair at parties, and you buy each other Starbucks with no intention of ever paying each other back. You see these girls at parties always looking for their friend Becca. You see them walking across campus shouting into a gold iPhone about going paleo. These girls are the worst girls you will meet in college.

1. Girls who caption their Instagram pictures with rap lyrics.

Unfortunately, no one cares that way up you feel blessed. Also, stop taking selfies in your Mazda every time you're at a stop light, I can see the seat belt in the picture.

2. Girls who refer to themselves as "grandmas" because they like sweaters and going to bed early.

You're not quirky and random; you're boring and probably super itchy.

3. Girls who post about their workouts and how healthy they eat on Facebook.

Everyone hates you, and no one cares about your excellent calves except that one great-aunt everyone has who always likes and comments on every post, despite the situation.

4. Girls who have straight across bangs.

We get it — you're artsy and probably do slam poetry.

5. Girls who refer to cities by combining the abbreviations of the city and state (e.g., NOLA or ATX).

It's just annoying. You will never be so strapped for time that you won't have time to say THE WHOLE THING.

6. Girls who constantly brunch.

It's not brunch if you're eating iHop at 11:48 a.m. on a Wednesday. Then, it's just a bad choice.

7. Girls who need you to know how much of a bro they are.

If all your friends are dudes, it's probably because other women can't stand you. And those dudes probably don't like you either because you're using them as Instagram props so people from high school think you have friends.

8. Girls who hate beer.

No one thinks you're fancy because your drink takes 12 minutes to explain to the bartender. Just drink some Bud Light and be happy we even invited you out, Jenna.

9. Girls who wear giant, non-prescription glasses as accessories.

Scarves and tiny purse dogs are accessories. Eyeglasses are not.

10. Girls who need you to know how obsessed they are with pizza and/or cats.

Everyone likes pizza and cats. It's literally bread and cheese and a fluffy pet who likes belly rubs. You're not quirky for liking pizza and cats. When did this even become a thing people said? It never occurred to us to specifically mention that we like those things. It's so redundant. We assume everyone likes those things, there's no need to point it out in some weird attempt to prove how quirky and "not like the other girls" you are. God this makes us so angry. Where's the Tylenol?

11. Girls who constantly talk about how much they love Netflix.

We get it. No one invited you out this weekend so you watched four seasons of "Grey's Anatomy." That doesn't sound fun; it sounds sad. You should be sad.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Breaking Down The Beginning, Middle, And End of Netflix's Newest 'To All The Boys' Movie

Noah Centineo and Lana Condor are back with the third and final installment of the "To All The Boys I've Loved Before" series


Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Why should you be open-minded when it is so easy to be close-minded?


Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
