The 6 Most Important Things You'll Learn During Sorority Recruitment
Elana Israeli

Coming to college after attending a sleep away camp for eight summers, I knew that Greek life was definitely going to be for me. All of first semester, I could not stop thinking about how amazing it was going to be to finally be in a sorority. Once winter break began coming to a close, the recruitment shopping began! I needed to find outfits that were business formal, business casual, and cocktail. After all the work I put into finding these outfits, it was time to fly back to campus and put in some real work during recruitment.

During the four rounds and numerous hours I spent talking to girls through the recruitment process, here a few of my takeaways:

1. Being yourself is the most important part of this process.

At the end of the day, you have to choose a house that you want to call your own.

2. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes.

I kid you not these were some of the longest and most tiring days of my life. Spending an entire day in heels, walking from house to house is not the move for long days of recruitment (especially the first couple of rounds).

3. Get some sleep!

I cannot stress this enough since even on the days where you only visit two houses you will still come out of the process being EXHAUSTED. Something about waking up early to get ready and look perfect, and then waiting around to go talk to people drains all of your energy out.

4. Don't take into account what house other people are going to choose.

My roommate, who is also my closest friend at school, is still my BFF despite being in different houses and I know that is never going to change. You can have friends that aren't in sorority, and should not base your decision on other people.

5. Be prepared for anything.

You never know what will happen and trusting the process is the only way to get through everything without being caught off-guard. Obviously always have a positive attitude, but don't make any assumptions about what houses you will still have before you find out so that there is less pressure on what happen.

6. Have fun!!!

At the end of the day, it is all about being happy and having a whole bunch of new sisters!!!!!!

I could not be happier with my decision to go AEPhi!!! Good luck to everyone who is rushing and remember to keep these tips in mind!

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
