What Is Sisterhood?

In other words, why should you go through sorority recruitment?

What Is Sisterhood?
Madison Linnihan

Helen Keller once said, “I would rather walk with a friend in the dark, than alone in the light.” After joining a sorority, it’s clear that everything is better with a sister by my side. The friendships I’ve made within my sisterhood are more special than I could ever express in words.

Sisterhood is the unconditional love we have for one another.

Sisterhood is one step higher than friendship. This means that we are there for each other no matter what through thick and thin. We are brought together by more than our taste in music or a similar class schedule. As Marilyn Monroe said, "Girls will be your friends -- they'll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything -- they're your true best friends. Don't let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world."

Although we are not all biologically related, we feel the same connections for each other that we would as a real family.

It is growing as women together with our shared values and beliefs.

People often ask me why I am in a sorority. Sometimes it's difficult to give a straight answer because there are a lot of different factors that influenced my decision. One of the biggest factors for me are the similar values and beliefs that I share with my sisters. It is our principles that link us together far more than our letters. When I first went through rush everyone told me that I will know where I belong all by myself. That was difficult for me to imagine, but it's true. When you go through rush, you fall in love with the sorority you are meant to be a part of because it will be made up of the women you know God placed into your life for a reason.

Sisterhood is never ending loyalty, understanding, and trust.

It is knowing that no matter how bad my day is, I will have a sister there to help me pick up the pieces. I have learned through these aspects of sisterhood that I am never alone. I will always have a support system and friends to lean on. I can't imagine going through college without the girls I'm lucky to call my sisters.

Attending school 900 miles away from home can be a challenge at times, but sharing this special bond with my sisters makes it easier. I see that sisterhood is a friendship that is made to endure for a lifetime.

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.

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.
