why you should go greek
Start writing a post

Whether you're like me and just starting your freshman year, or maybe you're thinking about it in your second or third, you should definitely go greek.

For me, it is only a week in and I already adore my sorority. Being in a new place surrounded by new people isn't as hard when you have your instant girl gang and connections with people who you know will be there for you when you need them.

Sometimes negative stereotypes surround greek life, or you may have your doubts about whether Greek life is meant for you. However, if you do choose to go through the rush process, you will likely find some amazing people to go through your college years with, if not the rest of your life.

At my college the rush process was a week full of talking to people, putting on your best face and it was definitely tiring. However, you're going through it with people just like you who are sharing the pain of blisters on your feet and making that pain feel more bearable because of the sweet moments you're sharing with each other.

This bond that you have and experiences you share together with friends from your rush group is just a taste of what you'll experience when you get into your own sorority. It's corny, and you'll hear it hundreds of times during your process, but you truly end up in the right place with the right people. Which brings me to my next point, TRUST THE PROCESS.

Another thing you will constantly hear that you need to start believing, you will end up where you're supposed to.

Throughout the process of rushing you may find yourself falling in love with a certain sorority, or maybe you went in with your heart set on just one. It is super, SUPER important that you keep an open mind during the process because unfortunately, girls don't always get their first choice.

However, in the end, you have to realize that this probably happened for a reason. You will get into the right sorority for you, where you will mesh with the other girls, and where you will find that you truly belong.

Even if you don't think you're the "sorority girl" type, there's a sorority for you with girls that feel the exact same way!

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.
