I never thought I would be a sorority girl… until I actually became one

Sorority and fraternity life is a large part of a college life-style. Growing up, especially in high school, I never thought I would become a sorority girl in college. I always thought that sorority girls were stuck-up, “basic,” and not someone who I wanted to be. During high school, though, my older cousin joined a sorority. I always saw pictures of her with her friends and doing fun activities – something that I longed for. When I finally got to college, I roomed with my cousin for a year. During this year, I got to meet some of the girls in her sorority and I really enjoyed their company and their overall “vibe”.

So at the start of my sophomore year in college, I decided to rush for the sorority. There, I got to spend time with the active sisters and see what the sorority had to offer. The girls were genuine and made me feel like I mattered. I am quite a shy person when I meet new people, and was nervous when I came to the first “info night.” Luckily, one of the active sisters sat next to me and just talked to me the entire time. As rush week went on, I decided to go out to more and more events. This was when I knew that this was the house for me.

As of today, I have been apart of the sisterhood, Chi Sigma Alpha, for almost an entire year.

When I first became an active sister, I was ecstatic. There were so many new people to meet and so many new memories to be made. After my first quarter as an active sister, I realized how lucky I am to be surrounded by people who truly care for not only me, but for each other as well. I now had people that I could rely on – people that would lend me a shoulder to cry on (regardless of the situation), people who are always there to listen, and people who are always down to get food. This sisterhood is made up of girls from all different personalities and backgrounds. This sisterhood is genuine. This sisterhood showed me that I was wrong. I was wrong for so long about what sororities are. I based my opinions off of the sorority stereotype and I am glad that I was proven wrong.

I am proud to be a sister of Chi Sigma Alpha. This sisterhood has taught me so much and I am forever grateful. These girls have been my rock and it’s hard to imagine a life without them. I know that sororities and sisterhood can seem overrated and it may sound like I am bull-sh*ting how I feel about sisterhood but trust me, I am not. I have learned so much and I am proud to wear my letters.

I cannot explain what it feels like to be apart of this sisterhood. It’s just something every person has to experience for themselves. If I had to give one piece of advice for girls who are exploring the Greek community: find the house that you feel most comfortable in, not the house that is most popular.
