What do you wish you knew before you went through sorority recruitment?
W O W. That’s a loaded question.
There are so many things! Literally so many. Like 4 million things.
Don’t forget, I went into sorority recruitment C L U E L E S S. I decided to go through recruitment last minute. I didn't do my research. I knew nothing.

Want to know 5 ways to stand out from all the other potential new members?
If I could give you one piece of advice... It’s to S T O P loving what they have, and S T A R T loving what you have!
We all go into sorority recruitment looking for our dream sorority.
We want the cliche college experience.
We want to live out the dream we have built up in our minds.
Guess what… that dream might be unrealistic!
Sorry I know that is harsh, but it's the reality.
Sorority recruitment is hard. It's hard emotionally. It's hard physically. It takes a toll on you.
Throughout recruitment, we put these sorority members on a pedestal.
We look up to them.
We want to be them.
Then when we get dropped by the sorority, our dreams crash down. We doubt ourselves. We question if we want to go through sorority recruitment.
You might be thinking, that’s not me. I don’t want to be in the “top” sorority. That’s not my thing… I thought so too.
But somehow your mind tricks you to thinking “I H A V E to be an insert sorority name here.”
And our minds do this because... we get so wrapped up in sorority recruitment. We begin to think that if we are not in the “top” sorority on campus, we might as well drop out!
That’s ridiculous… but it happens!!
That's why we have to stop loving what they have.
They might have thousands of instagram followers.
They might be hanging out with the “hottest” fraternity.
They might be “living their best lives”.
But so is E V E R Y O N E else! E V E R Y O N E.
All sororities give you opportunities. All sororities power you to be the best you. No sorority is holding you back.
You have to use your skills to find the sorority of your dreams.
Be the girl on a mission to find your dream sorority.
Don’t feel the need to please anyone.
Don’t fit a mold.
Don’t fake it until you make it. It will get you nowhere. The sorority members will see right past it.
Be your best self. The sorority members want to know the R E A L you. The sorority members don't want to meet a version of you.
Be your own kind of beautiful. If you don’t know how to bake your face, it does not matter. But really, who cares if you can bake your face…. literally it’s not important. Your dream sorority will accept you for who you are. And if a sorority judges you for your makeup, then they are not the right sorority for you!
You need to find the right fit. The girls who make you feel at home. The girls who will stand by your side through thick and thin.
That’s how you become the It Girl of sorority recruitment.
Everyone can be an It Girl!
It’s not the way you look or who you are.
It’s a mindset!
As you go through sorority recruitment, embrace your inner It Girl and show off who you are! You are amazing!
