Get your monograms ready! I’m here to dish the dirt. Not actual dirt but rather things that surprised me about joining Greek life. Not boring things though, there’s some doozies in here. Here we go
-there’s drama. Like kind of a lot. Mostly petty stuff.
-it’s a time commitment. Who’s ready for chapter meetings!
-it costs money but so does literally everything else in the world
-you have to put yourself out there. Surprise! Friendships don’t just magically develop, it takes effort.
-pictures of everything, everyday, all the time
-you miss them even just during thanksgiving break
-your gdi (God damn independent aka not in Greek life) friends will get tired of how often you talk about your house but you won’t care because Greek life is your life.
-there are rules to follow. Don’t worry though. As long as you don’t get arrested or post pictures underage drinking you’ll be fine.
-sorority girls really do love Starbucks. And uggs. And going to Starbucks in their uggs
-Lilly Pulitzer is queen
-I guarantee that every single member watches Netflix.
-we love a good themed party. Sorry, “function.” Get your togas ready!
-there are rules when it comes to wearing your letters. Just be a presentable, non thot person and you’ll be fine.
-people look at you confused when you call them your sisters
-you will quickly master the sorority squat
-chants and songs and chants and songs
-big/little is a huge deal. Like the hugest deal
-you throw what you know at every waking moment
-they are the sisters I never had but always wanted
In all seriousness though, going Greek is one decision that I have never regretted. It’s nearly the end of winter break and I am so excited to see them! I miss them so much. #gogreek
