Greek life is around the corner!

     I apologize for not having a Favorite Things Thursday post for the second week in a row... with starting the new school year my life has been crazy and my posting schedule hasn't been regular. I promise that next week I will have a very special birthday edition of FFT though!! And since my birthday is fast approaching that also means that my one-year blogoversary is right around the corner. :-)

     I don't really have time for a long post today, but I just wanted to share with y'all something that I'm really, really, really excited for... sorority recruitment!! Formal recruitment doesn't start at my school for two more long weeks, but the Greek community has been hosting some informal events where PNMs (potential new members) like me can meet some of the Greek girls and learn what Greek life is about at this school. Let me just say, I can tell already that Greek life will be a PERFECT fit for me. The girls in all of the chapters are the sweetest, and Greek life here isn't really about partying or being cliquey... instead it's very focused on service and sisterhood!! I can't wait to find out where my Greek home will be.

     As excited as I am to go Greek, I don't want y'all to think that that's the only thing that I'm doing here at school. ;-) I've also gotten involved with one of the Christian clubs on campus, as well as a club for communications majors like myself!! I'm also doing a small group for freshmen/transfer students, which will help us all get used to life here at this school. But Greek life is probably what I'm most excited for!

     One of the perks to going Greek is all of the cute shirts that you get! I can now say that I'm the proud owner of my first sorority t-shirt. All of the PNMs got these adorable recruitment week tank-tops, and me and a few girls from my dorm decided to wear ours today!!

     Of course I couldn't wear a sorority t-shirt without an obnoxiously hot pink bow!! ;-)

     Were any of you in a sorority during your college years? Are you in one now? Do you have any tips for me for rush week?

     xoxo Miss ALK



  1. Good luck girl! I'm a Delta Gamma and loved sorority/Greek life.

  2. I am SO excited for you to do sorority recruitment.. I can't wait to find out which house you end up in! :) Is there any houses right now you are particularly favoring? I remember how exciting rush was for me back in the day. I think it's awesome your doing some Christian clubs as well- some of my sorority sisters also were involved with young life during their time in the house! It was the perfect balance to do a little bit of it all. My advice would be to keep your head clear and seek Gods wisdom above all else in choosing the house that He wants you to join! He wants to help you make the perfect decision on a sorority so that you will end up where He knows you will be the happiest :) So in other words I guess: pray a ton! I am so excited for you with your new adventure being at your new University! & I am so happy I can stay updated on your life through your blog and Facebook! Love you a bunch my friend!
    Love, Jess!

  3. You are going to love Greek life!! Keep an open mind about all the different chapters and you will find the right fit. As corny as it sounds, you will feel where you belong. Rushing and joining Chi Omega was one of the best decisions I could have made!

  4. I'm so excited for you girl!! I'm loving the set sail theme for the shirt. I instantly love anything nautical! I love it!

    Good luck with everything and I hope recruitment goes well!

    xo, gina

  5. I'm so so so excited for you! I'm rushing in two weeks too! SO TERRIFYING! but hopefully we find our place :)

  6. When do you go through recruitment? Mine starts this weekend!
