    Horrible Experienced Led Me To Where I Was Meant To Be!

    Last January I was contacted by a member of a local sorority who convinced me to join. At first I was really excited, I had always wanted to join a sorority, but hadn't ever known how. I wanted to find a place where I belonged and make life long friendships with girls I loved...

    It is one of the best decisions I have ever

    made. It gives me so many opportunities for leadership and involvement as I serve on our chapter executive council and it gives me a network of phenomenal sisters all across the United States

    I am not your typical sorority girl.

    Freshman year my friend wanted to rush, so I went with her and actually really enjoyed it. Also, I wanted to cheer in college, and why they say being in a sorority doesn't matter, every cheerleader is in one. (I wasn't planning on sharing here that I am a college cheerleader...

    Simply Sisters

    I never thought I would join a sorority in college. In high school most of my friends were guys. I didn't really like the whole super-drama that came with having friends who were girls. I also don't act like a girl most of the time. When I actually arrived at college, I found...

    Definitely Not Stereotypical.

    The best thing about being in a sorority is that every individual's story gives a different view of what it's really like.  I, personally, don't give a **** about my hair most days.  I don't wear make-up, I don't have preppy clothes, and I weigh 195lbs.  My...

    Love It

    Joining a sorority was one of the best choices I've ever made in my life. I met a group of amazing women that never cease to amaze me. Not a single sister would hesitate to help out another sister. They are the best support system. On top of this there is the social life. We...

    Why I Love My Sorority

    Everyone says that sororities are for blonde, rich, bimbos. Or that all sororities do is party. Well all I've got to say is that my sorority which is Kappa Delta Chi is not like all the stereotypes...its different. Their a community service based sorority who don't spend money...

    I Love My Sorority, But

    unfortunately, this year hasn't been the greatest. I had gotten my big last fall semester and I am totally in love with her. She was the best person for me and we bonded so quickly at the start of my pledging process. Around the time I found out who my big was, she had told me...

    Be The Change You Wish To See

    ..this is a motto I absolutely believe in. I may have had a crappy big who disaffiliated, but this let me get extremely close to my little. I have created a bond with her that I never had with my big - probably never would have. When I first got her, we didn't spend too much...

    Two weeks ago, we took on a new pledge class.

    We chose our littles on Bid Day but they did not know who their big was until two days ago. I took on two littles. One who I knew was going to get through everything and not necessarily need a lot of help. The other one is a girl who I was her Rho Chi through Recruitment. She...

    Kappa Delta

    I did rush in college when it started this year. And I picked to be a member of Kappa Delta sorority. I already love my fellow sisters and it seems like we knew each other forever.

    A Positive Experience

    During my freshman year I pledged Tri Delta. The whole experience was so positive. The girls were welcoming to all who rushed. There was no negativity.It was really like becoming part of a family. I can only hope that all other girls have a similar experience.

    Don't Knock It.

    It's definately not what you see on TV. Everyone is NOT sleezy, everyone does NOT get drunk every day (or every weekend for that matter), everyone does NOT engage in backstabbing, gossiping or cattiness. We are NOT stupid and most of all we do NOT haze. So many people have this...

    Don't Lose Hope

    I know when i first thought about joining a sorority all i could think about was the pearls the stuck up girls and all the other stereotypes of what a sorority girl is. I finally found the sorority for me which was Gamma Sigma Sigma National Service Sorority. Even though we do...
