I joined a sorority my first semester of freshman year in 2017. I was really hesitant because I didn't have any friends coming into college and I didn't know what to expect. I always thought I would never join a sorority in high school, but after going through formal recruitment with my dorm neighbor, I learned it was the best decision I have ever made. Throughout formal recruitment I didn't know what to expect, but it was a really fun experience where I was able to talk to new people and make connections! Through the process of recruitment, I was able to find my new home and my support system.
In my organization, I have been able to meet my best friends, roommates, and have had the opportunity of holding a leadership position in my organization as well as on the Panhellenic Council! There are a lot of different reasons for people to stay in their sorority, but for me it has taught me to be more confident and have a voice on campus. My sisters always uplift me and help me when I need it, and this has made a huge impact on my collegiate career.
