Do you know anything about Delta Sigma Theta? If so, do you think an older undergrad (24) should pursue undergrad membership? I dont want to be the old lady on line; but I also dont care, DST is in my heart.

Unfortunately most of my sorority-specific knowledge lies with NPC sororities. However, I am a firm believer that your age should not be a factor in the process. If you want to pursue membership there is no reason not to and if it is a mutually beneficial relationship you will be welcomed into the chapter. As an older student, you have a lot more wisdom and experience to offer the chapter (just don’t overplay this factor!). You may find a bit of disconnect initially with what will potentially be a younger new member group, but I have no doubt hat you will be able to bond with them as well as the older members and thoroughly enjoy the experience :)

I have an interview for delta sigma theta. Everyone says to treat it like a job interview. So I was wondering would it be a good idea to bring my fashion portfolio.

I personally think that they mean it is just going to be a formal interview where you sit down with members and they want to make sure you will gain from the chapter as well as positively contribute through membership. So dress professionally and act professionally. Come prepared with questions for them, and answers to the questions they may ask (why that chapter, tell me about yourself, why are you the best candidate, what do you know about us, etc. ) I am not sure that bringing a portfolio would be necessary as it doesn’t relate specifically, but if they asked you to bring something that is a different story. You can also opt to bring it and only reference it if it becomes relevant. Focus on being able to speak eloquently about your passions :)

To that anon that was asking about the color scale and what type of a brush to use: use a sponge brush. paint the entire paddle purple, and while the paint is still wet, use white paint at the top and just keep brushing down until you get the full ombre effect.

what type of brush would you use to paint a color scale on a paddle? for example going from very light purple at the top to dark purple at the bottom

I don’t know brush types well, im sorry! Maybe a follower has an answer?

Are sororities really as crazy as TFM/TSM makes them out to be (taking adderall, constant hookups and partying)?

No. From my own personal experience and all of the stories shared with me, and my trips to other campus all around, I have never met a sorority that came remotely close to that horrible stereotype. While you may come across a member of a sorority (or fraternity) that does take part in those activities, it is not representative of how 99% of Greek life behaves. A personal lifestyle choice of a member is that member’s choice and not promoted by the organization. Many Greek life chapters offer programming that promotes healthy active lifestyles, study and time management clinics and alcohol and drug awareness, and can take affirmative action to help members abusing various substances or struggling in school. 

You will come across people who do these negative activities in any form of student life, not just Greek life. Members of Greek life, just as in any other student life group, are university or college students getting an education looking to be successful in the world. Cheating, (illegal/immoral) drug use, and constant partying would not help us accomplish our huge goals and dreams.  While it is unfortunate that people use a potentially really positive resource to put negativity and shame towards their own organizations, you will constantly encounter a huge force from Greek life members in the real world constantly working to overcome stereotypes, showing the world just how amazing the things we accomplish together are.

Do you or anybody know where I can buy Lilly Pulitzer wrapping paper or scrapbooking paper? I need it for a craft and can't find it anywhere!

I’ve seen wrapping paper for sale in Lilly Pulitzer stores before. You might want to check one of their makers, Life Guard Press to see if they have it on their website. You could also try taking the print image off their website, tiling it together in a photo editing program and printing on card stock :)

Where do you usually order your letters from?

I’m a big fan of making them myself…. If you take the time to do it properly they look professional! There are even websites you can get custom fabric from .. I actually want to try it out. But otherwise I order from a really wide variety of stores, depending on which carries my sorority and if it is licenced. If you feel like a website seems sketchy it probably is…. 

followers: please consider posting your favorite online stores here!

I rushed this semester and I got a bid. I even got pledged in however I got sick so I had to leave school. So I was wondering what your sorority would do in this situation. I plan I being back at school I'm the spring.

In some sororities its possible for them to hold your bid for 1 semester and you do not go in rush again and enter at the new member period. Other chapters may not have this in their recruitmenr rules and you may need to rush again. I believe that as long as you weren’t initiated into an npc chapter you would only be able to rush a different NPC chapter other than the one you accepted a bid for after 1 full year. it would be best to contact your chapters standards and alum advisors, as well as have them contact your HQ to verify proper procedure.
