I saw many girls that were my friends that were cut, and I was praying I was not one of them. At that point one sorority thought I was going to go their way and the my ZTA friend told me that they were thinking I was not going to choose them. Let me mention real quick that there were two sororities on campus. I am not going to go into lots of depth about this because it is not the main point of this post. Anyways, leaving the last night and filling out my pref card was hard. I was faced with Choosing either one, listing them in order or what they call suicide-ing..which is super dangerous. So I chose the place that I felt was home. Needless to say on Bid Day I was told that my my new sisters that it was quite the shock that I picked them. However, when you just know..you just know.
Time went on and my first sorority friend became my Big sister, you can see two of my littles and one of my grandlittles in the picture above. I must admit that she had me convinced I was not her little, but when the time came to find out my big I could not have been happier. Throughout my first year I developed many friendships with all of my new sisters. Sometimes it still do not seem real that I am a ZTA Alumae. I became super active and served on many boards within and out of my sorority. So technically we are a fraternity, because we founded ourselves. However, mostly we get associated as being a sorority because we are women. Anyways, I ended up on being on the Panhellenic council and playing big roles in campus activities. By my second year I was chosen to be someone’s big! In all at the end of my collegiate career I had 5 littles(2 adopted) and 3 Grandlittles.
I also became a fraternity little sister and dated my share of fraternity guys as well. I attended Greek formals, parties and banquets of all kinds. I also made so many friendships that will last a lifetime.
I had the time of my life due to joining this sorority. I was opened up to so many opportunities and I was brought out of my shell. I found that being a member kept me happy, dedicated and focused on making memories and having the time of my life while in college. I wish so many times that I could go back and relieve just one of those days. They say you meet your bridesmaids when you go to college…Well I just so happens something better happened, I met my sisters!
Regardless of your Greek or Non-Greek affiliation this is an experience that is truly remarkable. I know that I love my sorority sisters with all my heart. One this is for sure regardless of where they are or what school they attended, this sisterhood is one that bonds you together and you will always have someone to lean on because of it! I know that I was super surprised to find out that two of my favorite bloggers were my sorority sisters. I hope that if you ever get the chance that you become Greek or share in a Greek Life experience!
