Because I am a sister, I strive to be a leader. Because I am a sister, I have a family and a group of fabulous women by my side for life. Because I am a sister, I will grow to be even more phenomenal each and everyday. Because I am a sister, I know I'm capable of changing the world.
Joining a sorority has helped me become a stronger, more independent woman, and it's all thanks to the women that I have in my corner, If I didn't have them, I wouldn't be as grounded in school and in my friendships. I've learned the value of sisterhood, loyalty, friendship, love and strength through my relationships that I have with them.
I chose to join a sorority soley for the resume building and the leadership opportunities, but I remained a sorority woman because of the support system that I've gained through my organization. Being in charge of recruitment this year has taught me to reach out to women who might be seeking the same things I did when I was in their shoes.
Going Greek is half the battle, because all of the Panhellenic organizations are in it for the same cause. It's a movement, a staement, to go Greek. During recruitment, just breathe, be yourself, and keep an open mind. I promise you'll be great.
Panhellenic Council members, recruitment counselors, and other sorority women in our Greek community will be blogging throughout the summer months to help potential members prepare for recruitment.
