Quick Tips: Sorority Recruitment

I know, this is super early in the summer. But, as a former Director of Formal Recruitment, current first night chair, and member of every recruitment committee there is I can say that it is never too early to begin thinking about recruitment. Notice, I say "begin thinking about" and not "begin stressing about."

Recruitment should not be a time of panic and stress, but a time when you are looking for your home away from home; because that's honestly what this is all about. Your sorority will be your family while at school and overtime they'll become your family away from school as well. My sisters are honestly my best friends and I know I could go to any of them for anything. Go into recruitment with this in mind. You should choose the house that is best for you. And you can listen to what other people say about each house and where they believe you belong, but in the end it needs to be your decision. You will be the new member, not them.

With all of that said, here are some things to keep in mind as you go from house to house during recruitment:

Summertime Sigh

You guys, I am bored of summer already. And I know, you must be saying, "But Val! How could you possibly be tired of being home and not having classes!?" Well here's the thing; my life is so much more entertaining while I'm away at school than when I'm here at home. My sisters and my friends are at school. I live by myself, which I love. And there are loads of planned events to attend and things to keep me busy. As my last year of college is coming up, I can't help but think about how much I'm going to miss college after it's all over.

But enough of the depressing "woe is me" type posts. That's all of the whining I'm going to allow. Maybe you guys have some great ideas of ways to keep your summer from hitting a dead end. What are some fun things you do during the summer time? Let me know in the comments down below! And wish your daddies a happy Father's Day!
