August 4, Hey there! Aka almost Friday, hooray! I was thinking a lot the other day about how excited I was about the upcoming school year. And a lot of those wonderful people are in my sorority. My freshman year, I went into school thinking that all girls in sororities were super perky, enthusiastic, extroverts, who were all of the same mold. Throughout my freshman year, I met girls in sororities from all walks of life, with diverse interests and passions, some of whom were super social, and others who were a little more reserved. My sorority is a group of highly principled, amazing women, who build each other up. But there is a common thread of respect and a lot of similar values that we share. I think having this type of supportive network women is SO important.
I had a best friend for years, her name was Amy. We had gone to camp together. At the beginning of 7th grade, she told me she was a lesbian. I didn’t know why, but I was happy about this. She told me not to worry, that she wouldn’t hit on me. This surprisingly upset me.
Part of being a Sorority girl is to have the width of a broom, with a couple of balloons taped on. Like boxers before a fight, Dutch sorority girls have to undergo regular weigh-ins to ensure that they remain within the normal boundaries expected by the sorority.
Dear Evan, I was at a speed dating event last night for the second time. Just like the first time, it was full of smart, pretty, successful women in their thirties and forties and men of similar ages with manual labor jobs and a few running their own manual labor businesses but no men of equivalent professional or educational status except for one doctor. Why he was there, I do not know, as he made it clear that he was not really looking to date anyone.
He did however buy me a drink in the bar afterwards and asked me what I thought of the event. I said I would be unlikely to go again because I have nothing in common to talk about with the men that I have met at these events. I am just wondering how many other men think like this?
The House Bunny Not unlike many sorority girls before me, I came into my freshman year at college with a negative view of sororities and fraternities. All my preconceived notions of Greek life were based off what the media had been feeding me since I was old enough to watch an American Pie movie. That, coupled with the occasional horror story featured on the nightly news about hazing gone wrong, was more than enough to keep me far away from anything emblazoned with a letter from the Greek alphabet.
There is a saying amongst us sorority girls: “From the outside, you can never understand it. From the inside, you can never explain it.” I’ve tried my best to address and explain some stereotypes about sororities and hopefully changed some people’s minds about Greek Life.
A digital magazine based in Brooklyn, NY 25 Things Sorority Girls Taught Me In college, I pledged a sorority — and spent the next four memorable years pretending I wasn’t the world’s most inept sorority girl. Here’s a quick and dirty inventory of the actually valuable knowledge I absorbed in the process.

Never go full hooker. If you can blame white people, patriarchy or the colonizing West within the first five minutes of class discussion, it’s acceptable to spend the rest of the hour on Twitter. In drinking, sex, working out and studying for finals, if you look better after or during it than before, you’re doing it wrong. Frat boys are far more likely to do you a favor if you wear a sundress when you ask. If your male friend ends a text with a smiley face, he’s trying to have sex with you.
If your female friend ends a text with a smiley face, she’s trying not to be a b-tch. Delicate negotiations among roommates are best approached with a tray of something warm and Nutella-scented in hand. Weeknight going-out clothes should either show off one’s boobs or one’s legs. Doing both and doing neither are frowned upon equally. LinkedIn is for sober, earnest, employable you; Facebook is for mobile-upload-blurry, tipsy-but-not-yet-sloppy you.
A lot changed in that first semester of college, and I fell in love with my school. So I decided to rush my sophomore year along with one of my roommates. Both of us were more comfortable with a year under our belts. We had a ton of Greek friends and saw the amazing experiences they were having. But Alabama has the largest rush in the country, so it was a bit intimidating. That said, I had the most amazing time being in a sorority.

No outsiders are allowed to live here, as people in the village will only sell to people they know.

Many early fraternities made reference to Christian principles or to a Supreme Being in general, as is characteristic of fraternal orders. While these limitations have since been abolished by both the Interfraternity Conference and the National Pan-Hellenic Council , students of various ethnicities have come together to form a council of multicultural Greek organizations. The Multicultural Greek Council, officially formed in , is a coordinating body of 19 Greek organizations, including nine fraternities, and ten sororities with cultural affiliations.
Misery loves company — which is why it’s much better to take your punishment as a group. Plenty of places where it just makes better sense to punish the whole group–gym class, scouts, school, prison, sororities, teams, you name it.

I would have never gone to college in the first place if it weren’t for the guy I was dating at the time.
Back then, I would have joined the sorority that pleased the old ladies in my church, or the most popular one on the yard. Many women in my family went to college, but did not join sororities. They were nursing majors who said their studies were too rigorous for social interests).
SHARE Women who project body hatred onto other women unknowingly encourage girls and women who bully one another. Several examples of women against women played out recently in the national media. Both of these women have spoken openly about the pain and humiliation such public ridicule incited. Using a blizzard of expletives, she calls out her sisters for not being good enough hosts to sustain fraternity attention. Reading this email is a memorable experience, even momentarily energizing to hear a stereotypical image of a sorority girl—social, nice, fun, full of sisterly love—debunked with such passion as the writer systematically knocks her sisters to the floor.
But as is unfortunately true for women in our culture today, for some the only truly satisfying way to debunk is by going to the extreme and adopting the same language some men have been known to use to keep women feeling powerless and insecure.
