During Formal Recruitment, we all get to talk about our favorite things about our respective chapters over and over and over again. Then it ends, and we go back to real life…classes, work, and everything that exists outside of the house. The best part of the week is that you have the perfect chance to appreciate your sisters and everything that they do for you…and you bond like you’ve never bonded before. This year I had an absolutely great time getting to know some of our sophomores better, just hanging out with my roommates, and being with the girls 24/7. Since I have had a great couple of weeks in sorority life…I thought I would share some of my favorite things about being in a sorority with you…
- Someone is always around to order food with you late at night, or to go with you to get something that can’t be delivered. There is nothing better than HotBox breadsticks while you’re studying, going to get McDonald’s when you really don’t need to, or going to BRICS two days in a row. And I am now officially craving each one of these….
- Watching YouTube videos all night long, and then quoting them until you fall asleep. My room’s favorite video is Boys Will Be Girls, but others like Sassy Gay Friend and Jessica’s Daily Affirmation are always a close second…
- Even though we all meet and get to know our new members, sometimes you don’t get to know a certain side of a person’s personality until you get the chance to really open up with them. I love getting to see how multi-faceted and amazing my sorority sisters are…and becoming so much closer with them in the process.
- Just like my own sister and I, we might not always get along…but we always respect one another. We are all so different and so unique in our own way…but somehow the differences bring us closer together, and make us appreciate ourselves and each other more every day.
Of course, there are more things that I love about Alpha Phi and my sorority sisters, but I might just have to save those things for another blog.
