‘alpha chi omega’
Oct. 27, 2013—A few weeks ago my dad wanted to see me, so he booked plane tickets to come down to Nashville last weekend! I haven't seen any of my family yet this semester, so I was super excited to see him. We spent the weekend doing the usual family-comes-to-town things: eating out, going to the Vandy game, and shopping.
Oct. 22, 2013—Yesterday was a great day due to the fact that I got free cake not once, but twice! If I haven't said it enough, I love sugar, so I'm all over the scene when there is free dessert. When I got two emails yesterday telling me that there would be free cake for biomedical engineers and at my sorority, I was really excited and naturally went to both.
May. 27, 2013—This semester, I had the opportunity to attend my first-ever sorority date party with my dear pal, Lauren, a member of Alpha Chi Omega. What's all the hype with Greek date parties, you ask? Here's the two-cents you've been looking for, from a non-Greek, costume-loving, incoming junior.
Feb. 22, 2013—So for those who know nothing about Greek Life (don't worry, that was me a year ago) every sorority has Bigs and Littles. Basically, every new member is a Little and gets a Big, who is someone a year older than them to show them the ropes and hang with a ton. You also then join a family with a Grandbig (like Eileen). As a new member, I was so excited to get a Big.
Feb. 2, 2013—Thursday night I attended a talk by Nicholas Kristof, coauthor of the book, Half the Sky. I had to go to the event for AXO, but I was actually really excited because I read the book this past summer and loved it. It also just so happens that Half the Sky was the Commons Reading this year.
Jan. 16, 2013—These past two weekends I spent at sororities for spring recruitment. I rushed as a sophomore, which is not common, but not unheard of. Coming into college, I didn't know that much about sororities, as none of my family was greek. After watching lots of my friends join sororities last year and have wonderful experiences, I decided that I wanted to rush as well!
