Hi everyone :) I’m insanely busy these days with minimal time for crafting, but I have been making some time for scrapbooking!
This is just a friendly reminder to submit photos of crafts, or tutorials of cool unique things you and/or your chapter have done!
It depends on the rules and guidelines the chapters adhere to. Some require 1 or 2, some require none. If you are uncertain, try contacting the panhellenic for advice.
No. Definitely not. And any girls that are going to judge you based on wearing glasses aren’t worth knowing, anyways. Be proud of who you are. So many people wear glasses; it is natural and nothing to be ashamed of.
I definitely think you are overreacting. As a guideline, obviously don’t post anything you wouldn’t want a future employer to see… but a lot of the time it just becomes awkward if the active follows a bunch of pnms that don’t end up joining their chapter. I don’t think it has anything to do with you personally at all. If you’re super concerned, you can block her until after recruitment and it would just appear as though you deleted your account.
It kind of depends on how formal the recruitment is.. but you can ask questions about past events, the philanthropy, what the members are proud of about their chapter… try to develop questions based on what is presented to you. Ask how they get involved with their philanthropy, what academic programming might exist, etc.
Wait until sessions about finances and fees to ask dues-related questions unless a member brings it up or the recruitment style is informal (it might be appropriate to ask about it at a campus with small greek life, whereas a huge Greek system would find it improper for you to ask in conversation).
The most important thing you can do to stand out is just display your ability to keep conversation flowing - it can be awkward for all of us but if we had a good conversation with you we will remember you!
Fees depend on chapter, campus, and housing situation for the most part. You pay typically per semester, and you will often find affordable payment plans are an option if you ask. Chapters I am familiar with pay their dues online, and some offer the option to also pay in cash. The way you use your student loans is a personal decision - because of interest you really should consider not using it for anything but necessities but it is something to possibly discuss with your financial advisor. Many international organizations offer scholarships that can help pay, won for involvement and academic achievements.
Anything to get to know who you are and what you stand for. Think job interview meets first date meets coffee date with a friend I guess. Anything could come up as long as it’s not too personal/private. Try preparing an elevator speech to practice talking about yourself and you accomplishments and interests. It sounds like it would be easy but talking about yourself under pressure can be a challenge for many people and you don’t want to say “ummmm, uhhhhh” constantly to fill space! Just don’t recite a speech during recruitment - use it as a prep tool :)
An easy way is to trace it with tissue paper or tracing paper and then put that tracing over the surface you want to paint and go over this with some permanent marker…. You want to test it out first on a different surface to make sure your paint will completely cover the marker that transfers through first though.
Not sure what this is, anyone have tips?
