Why Littles Rock

Who doesn't want to be an awesome big?

Why Littles Rock

We see ourselves getting further into the semester.

But while we get further into the year...we also get close to little christmas AND BIG & LITTLE REVEAL.

Being a little is the best thing ever. I remember being so overwhelmed when I joined my sorority last year. I was super excited, but the whole Greek world was new to me, not to mention I was still adjusting to college life in general. 

I didn’t really know anyone in my new sorority other than the girls I met through rush. Even though I was happy with my decision and knew that I belonged, I was still nervous to start meeting everyone and attending the events.  

We started getting set up with different buddies (usually sophomores) every week to try to find our bigs, and I remember loving every minute I spent with my buddies.  When I finally met my big, I knew right away. She was so fun and easy to talk to that I knew we would be really good friends, but a big is even more than a friend. They really are like family in the sense that they look out for you no matter what and help you adjust to college and sorority life.  

It was great to have someone to look up to who seemed so comfortable at Clemson and was only a year older. Seeing someone who had the college thing all figured out and had just been there for a year made me feel less nervous for my first year. I also really loved getting all the canvases, shirts, and candy from her the day before the big reveal. But bigs don’t just shower you with presents, they introduce you to new people and things.              

So clearly I love being a little, but all of the reasons listed below are also why I want to be a big so badly:

- I want to help a new girl feel comfortable and bring her to events to meet my friends. 

- I really want to help my little with anything she needs and be there whenever she needs me. 

- I want to craft and craft and craft until I have a pile of presents for her because I remember how great it felt to get all of the gifts last year.  

- I would love it if someone looked up to me the way I look up to my big and became another true friend of mine.  

Now that I’m on the other side of things and get to be an older buddy I’m trying to make all my buddies feel welcome and at home in my sorority. When I finally do find my little I know that it’ll be just as wonderful as when I found my big and I can’t wait to add a new member to my family.

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.

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.
