What It’s Like To Rush The New Sorority On Campus

Rushing Greek life is basically a week-long holiday for some people. Actually more like a month if you include the month prior to when they buy their outfits, get interview training tips, meeting with ladies to get rec’s, it’s crazy none the less. So what is it like to go to college and fall in love with the sorority that hasn’t been established yet, or better known as “the new sorority on campus”? It’s everything and more you could ask for.

  • Your opinion about the sorority is based on the advisors you meet and the LCs from other schools you meet. You don’t see these women in the frat houses the week before boning beers, you don’t meet these women in your dorm hallway, you meet these women while they are gushing about their sorority and volunteering their time to share their joy and love for the sorority and Greek life.

 

  •  You define how the University and World sees your chapter. Those 70-300 women who chose to be founding sisters with you get to help make the reputation of that sorority known. It’s up to y’all to decide how the university perceives your chapter and what better power is that?

  •  The traditions that that sorority has starts with you. There is no “this is how we’ve done it the past 50 years so it’s how its done”. It’s “This is our decision how to do it and how they do it for the rest of time” and one of the most exciting feelings ever.

 

  •  Going through recolonization on campus is one of the best sisterhood bonding events you could do. Some new sororities at schools aren’t re-colonizing but note that if they are, you will have a heck of a sisterhood afterwards. Every trial and tribulation that chapter goes through you all go through together and at the same time and there is nothing better than having all your sisters beside you to experience it.

  • Warning: the rest of Greek life will judge your chapter for the first month, but believe me, once they realize how awesome you and your sisters are they stop real fast. It’s hard being the new sorority on campus, just like being the new kid in grade school isn’t always easy, but when you have 70-300 other girls going through it with you, it makes it worth it.

 

  • A brand new house for you to fall even more in love with your sorority in. I know that it’s nice to have a house that already contains memories from past sisters, but just imagine what it can feel like knowing you’re the first class to live in the house, you get to make the memories and stories that will told 50 years down the road. The scratch on the floor that made them move the couch to cover it from the one night your sister came home a little drunk and you all had a dance party in your 6 inch heels? Yeah you were there for it, and it will be a funny story told for years down the road.

Rushing any sorority has its ups and downs and like any sorority woman will tell you, we wish you the best of luck and hope you find your home. But don’t always put down the new sorority on campus because even if you don’t get to talk to the girl who will become your big during rush, you get to meet all the other girls who will become founding sisters with you and will form one of the strongest bonds of sisterhood you could ever feel.

A Thank You Letter To My Ex And Our Failed Engagement

A Thank You Letter To My Ex And Our Failed Engagement

For the past 2 years I have sat back and regretted many relationships in my past. I always thought to myself why I put myself through those painful relationships and let them last so long. Then I started thinking about “the one that got away”. I’m one of those girls that always wanted to get married young so when I met the guy I thought was my dream guy, my soul mate, I locked him down fast. We got engaged after being together 4 months when I was just 18, we moved in together 2 years later, and 4 months later we ended our 3 year roller-coaster of a relationship. I never really got closure because it was such a toxic relationship,so to me it wasn’t worth the tears or even thinking about ever again. But lately, I’ve been thinking about how that 1 guy, that 1 relationship has changed me so much. And to that I want to thank my ex.

thank you letter

Thank you. Thank you for being a part of my life at some point even if it was just a few years. I believe that certain people come into our lives to change us and make us better, and for me you were one of them. You taught me how to be strong while I was emotionally and verbally abused. You taught me that my anxiety is hard for certain people to handle and I understand and that it will take special people to love my flaws and know it’s not me being “dramatic”. I’d rather be loved by special people than ordinary people.  Surprisingly because of all this you changed me for the better, who I am today because of all that is a better version of myself than I was even just 2 years ago. I know how to stand my ground now. I know what it’s like to be conditionally loved and learned to run from those relationships. I know what it’s like now to love someone but yet not be in love with that person.

thank you letter

Thank you. Thank you for proposing to me at the age of 18 and thank you for letting that engagement fail. Back then I thought the day you got on one knee was the best day of my life, boy was I wrong. I realize it was the complete opposite. I realize now that all that happened that day is nothing I want when I fall in love with the right person. I learned that I wasn’t ready to be a wife, and lets be real, won’t be for a while because it’s a lot of work. Because of our young engagement I learned what it felt like to have everyone in my life turn their backs on me because they didn’t support us. I’m glad our engagement failed mainly because I know what that heartbreak feels like. I know what it’s like to plan your entire future and have it all taken away. I know how to prevent those feelings ever happening again. In all honesty, I’m glad it all happened because it’s another life experience that helped me grow and mature to the woman I am today.

thank you letter

Thank you. Thank you for all the fights, the bickering, and the embarrassing public uproars. Without those arguments we would have never known how wrong for each other we were. Those fights, that relationship changed me. I learned since then what actions are worth the fight and what ones are. I’m sorry I never learned during our relationship but I know now. Those arguments, those big traumatic scenes where my anxiety got the better of me has made me a better partner. That one time I got mad at you for hugging another girl? That never happens now because you made me realize guys can have girls as friends too. I guess I can say the fighting has matured me but really its the pain those fights caused me that have matured. The nights I lay in bed crying making me realize I never want to go through that again. So yeah, our toxic relationship changed me and for that I thank you and I’m sure my future husband thanks you too.”

thank you letter

In the end, we didn’t make it as a couple or as friends and I’m ok with that. Its relationships like this that we put ourselves through because we know they make us better people, they help us lead our lives in the right direction. To be able to get closure is the most important thing you can do for yourself. So girls, when you’re sitting back thinking about revenge on your ex take a minute and really think, is it worth it? I mean they did after all help shape you into the beautiful woman you are today and lead you to your future hottie of a husband. So we can’t stay mad at our pasts forever, so remember when you need closure, in the words of the great L.C., “I want to forgive you and I want to forget you.”

Thank You Letter
