Anyways, I’m all done with undergrad and I’m heading to professional school soon. I’m excited/nervous/terrified … is that normal?
I also wish I was better at standard crafty-things like painting. I think the world is better off if I don’t paint things! I’m so in awe of the things a lot of you ladies are capable of!
I love when you guys interact with me on this blog - don’t be afraid to come say hi or tell me about your day or ask a question (I may not have the answer but i’ll try!)
And still feel free to submit your crafts!!
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!
