Greek Speak: So You Didn’t Get Your First Pick…

Sorority recruitment can be many things: fun, intense, scary, adventurous, and exciting - but it can also be brutal. Warning: Expect tears. While many girls will end up in their dream house, there are plenty of potential new members that will not get their first choice house and some girls who won't get in a house at all!

Greek Speak: So You Want to Join a Sorority?

As a die-hard sorority girl, I have no problem admitting that I know exactly what it takes to successfully join the sorority that is right for YOU. And trust me, there is one.

Duke It Out: Going Greek

Having spent my college years at a *ahem* non-traditional school, sororities were never something I considered - we don't even have a campus, let alone a Greek system. But nonetheless, I suppose I've always looked down a bit on sorority girls... at least until recently when one of my best friends told me she was going to rush this year.
