Your Unofficially Official Guide To Sorority Recruitment

At the end of the week, you'll be where you belong. Your home for four years. the ladies that surround you are strangers now, but very soon they'll become your closest confidants that know everything about you and more. They'll be the girls you go to when you want to celebrate an A with, the girls y

Be yourself!


Super cliché, BUT you don't want to portray yourself as someone else and then end up in a house that's not for you!

Be yourself, but your BEST self


Same thing applies! Portray yourself in the best way possible in a way that's still genuine.

Don't stress


Everything will work itself out in the end.

Prepare outfits, hair, and makeup ahead of time


You don't wanna be up at 4am digging through your closet because the outfit your put together in your head looks not that great in real life.

Don't be afraid to ask the girl rushing you questions


Questions about her sorority, why she rushed that house, what stood out to her, how she knew that her house was HER house, etc!

Don't be nervous!!


Chances are, the girl rushing you is exponentially more nervous than you are.



Bring a little purse and put a small water bottle in it and take the drinks the girls give you at the house!!!! IT'S AUGUST!!!!!! IT'S HOT!!!!!

Keep some ~extras~ in your purse


Extras: oil blotting sheets, concealer, mints/gum, chapstick, setting spray, bobby pins, dress tape, Advil, lotion, deodorant, tampons, and whatever else you think may need.

Keep the shoes comfortable, ladies


Long days + uncomfortable shoes = a cranky PNM

Talk to your Gamma Chi


At UGA, they're called Gamma Chis, but different schools call them different things like Rho Chi and Gamma Rho. Either way, these ladies have disaffiliated from their sorority so that they can help you and give you unbiased advice. They want you to have the best rush experience possible so use this amazing resource!!



TRUST THE PROCESS! Go with your gut, not with what other people tell you.

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.

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.
