Do you have to have instagram in a sorority? The one I hope to get bided on is really big on social media and I deleted mine when I broke up with my bf is that an issue? Will that be a turnoff ? Make me seem less interesting

I can’t imagine it would be an issue or come up at all during recruitment. If it comes up explain yourself and any person should understand.

When girls decorate cups for dances, how do they all look perfect? Do they use stencils or what? Because they always look so professional and I'm scared because I am soooo not artistic

Unless everyone is just extremely artistic, I’d say there’s a good chance stencils are used for the majority of projects. And there is no shame in that:) you can even make your own stencil with card stock or cardboard and a good knife or scissors (and maybe a printout from the computer to trace!

I will be a junior in the fall and was wondering is rushing weird or a bad idea?

No way. A lot of my closest friends in my chapter joined sophomore and junior year. It will be challenging at times (likely a lot of the class will be freshmen) but if it’s something you want to do and don’t, you will have regrets.

I'm about to transfer to another school. Do you (or anyone out there) know how to go about affiliating with the chapter there? Like paperwork, etc?

The best thing to do is contact your national hq to ensure a smooth transition :)

Don’t forget you can submit things here.

There is a ridiculous amount of activity on this blog but the past month has been submission and question slow. Feel free to even drop by and say hi, I’d love to get to know some of you :)

Hey~ I have a question for you (or any followers, if you wanna publish this) - I'm making yarn bracelets for my pledge class (similar to a nautical rope bracelet) and was wondering if there were any tutorials for making your own charms, whether it's out of plastic, cardboard (probably not metal, if it can be helped) so that I can make letters to attach to the bracelet somehow. Any ideas at all? Thanks!!

I honestly haven’t ever done this before and haven’t come across any tutorials for that in my years running this blog but hopefully someone can help you out! I love that you’re so ambitious with your crafting!

How can I bond with my sorority sisters? Our chapter consists of 60+ girls. I am naturally shy but I would like to build awesome friendships with my sisters but I'm such an introvert. Eventually, I would like to be an committee head or even an officer.

Start by making plans with one or two girls, and including other girls in on the plans too but keeping it small. Being more involved will give you a reason to get to know the girls you may not have a chance to talk to otherwise as well :) they all joined for the same reasons you did so I’m sure they’d be more than happy you made an effort!

My pledge class has to give a gift to our sisterhood as a whole as well as a gift for each individual sister. Last year's pledge class gave the sisterhood new large wooden letters so we are trying to stay away from that. Do you or any of your followers have any ideas for a sisterhood gift or a smaller gift(s) for each sister? Thanks! :)

Yes it’s a good idea not to repeat a recent gift. Try to think outside the box… Look back to past things that maybe worked really well and try to expand on them? I’m not really sure of good ideas because this wasn’t a tradition in my chapter. Maybe also include some cute way of presenting what the gift is too… Try to make it fun! As for smaller gifts.. if you have enough people available to help, try to make some form of slightly personalized craft to include because it will look like a lot of thought went into it. And the way of presenting these as well will make the best impression! (Fancy gift wrap?) I wish I was more help for this. Hopefully some people will have ideas? :)

Do you know anything about chi omega? I also wanted to know if Greek life at Colorado State University was big to the point that it would be difficult to get into a sorority

Would anyone like to answer this? x

I'm a high school freshman but I would like to join a sorority when I go to college. I'd like to go to South Carolina or UGA but I was wondering whether my chances of joining a predominantly white sorority would be hard for me because I am black. Do you have any thoughts on this?

I certainly hope this would have zero impact on your ability to rush or join.  Go with an open mind, be yourself and if you are a good fit for the chapter and they are a good fit for you, you should have no different odds of getting a bid than any other woman. 

Edit: I can only speak from my own personal experiences and the experiences others have shared with me, and for what I would hope and expect from highly educated women.
