    Hi Eden,
    I have never really given much thought as to being in a sorority before, but as the year gets closer I am considering it. But I have a question about being a freshman and being in a sorority… it sort of scares me because I feel like I have a pretty heavy schedule, would I be able to manage both my schedule for school and being in a sorority?
    Sincerely,
    Erika

    Erika,

    I know exactly how you feel, I never considered the idea until my friend’s sister convinced me to sign up and now I’m in charge of all sorority recruitment! Although freshman year can be overwhelming at times, being in the sorority gives you the community, resources, and friends to help you get aquainted with the environment a lot faster than you might have been otherwise. Along with that, most of sorority life is as big as a commitment as you would like it to be, and the more you put into it, the more you will get out of the experience. I am fully confident that you will be able to get the hang of it and be able to manage both school and sorority life, and if you need help, you will have 100+ new sisters who would be more than happy to help you out! Let me know if you have any other questions!

    I haven’t submitted an application yet because I was confused on a couple of things. I saw that there was a Unified Greek Council, so I was wondering if the application on here applies for that as well?

    Eden,
    Thank you! that actually takes care of all my questions, I think I am going to rush just to find out more about each one, and if I don’t think I can handle it I would love to try it as a sophomore. But the most common thing I hear is “they will take care of you” so that makes me feel better. Thank you for answering my question.

    Hi Eden,
    I signed up for recruitment week and I can’t do it now. I was wondering if there’s any way I could get refunded. That would be wonderful! Perhaps I will join next year.
    Thank you!

    Alysha,

    Unfortunately the Unified Greek Council is a seperate part of Greek Life. They do not have a formal recruitment process but if you want to hear more about their chapters pelase contact Martha Ngo at: dpo.phaedra@gmail.com.

    Kaitlyn,

    I will look into it and then send you an email. Too bad you can’t participate, I encourage you to try again next year!

    Thanks!

    Hey Eden,

    I’m technically a junior, (Even though I have two years left of undergrad) and I’m considering rushing. Am I still allowed to rush as a junior? Do the houses prefer freshman bids?

    Thanks!

    Taylor,

    Everyone has an equal opportunity to go through recruitment. There are plenty of students who are not freshman that go through recruitment and enjoy sorority life for their last few years! I encourage you to sign up and go through recruitment. It’s a great experience and so much fun!

    Eden
