What’s So Great About Greek Life?
Before I moved in, you could ask just about anyone I knew, “Do you think Tatum will join Greek life?” and their immediate answer would be, “No way!” I could not see myself being part of a sorority; it was not my crowd. That quickly changed, however, a few days after I moved in.
My mom and dad were both part of Greek life during college and my brother is currently in a fraternity. I have heard countless stories from them about how they have made lasting friendships and memories through it. I started to see many signs around campus about joining Greek life, and began to consider the idea. Finally, I decided to go through recruitment.
Recruitment was a week filled with learning about both sororities we have on campus (Sigma Kappa and Phi Sigma Sigma) and meeting the girls that are active members of them. The week was filled with fun! At the end of the week, I pledged to become a member of Sigma Kappa!
I have only been a part of Sigma Kappa for a short while, but I already have a bond with every one of my sisters! They are all so talented and driven, and I cannot wait to continue to grow close with them. I know they will be there for me through the hard times, help me to celebrate the good times, and push me to be better all of the time. I’ve found my home in them.
I encourage you all to give Greek life a shot. It is great way to get involved on campus. Although it isn’t for everyone, you will never know until you try. You might just find your home too!
