I didn't get the big I wanted. I was hoping for my number one choice and it didn't happen. I ended up getting my last choice. I'm really disappointed. I know my first choice did preference me so what's the problem?
Something I didn’t realize until it was too late is that a Big Sis is supposed to be a mentor. She is there to guide you through your years of membership and beyond. She is a confidant, a back bone, a sounding board, and friend. It may be difficult to see now, but your Big Sis may be the best person for you.
Just because you did not get your first pick does not mean that you cannot hang out with her anymore. Now you have two amazing women to spend your time with and to have be role models to you!
Easily the highlight of my week! 💛💕❤
Happy Founders Day to the ladies of Sigma Kappa!

Pocketful of Sisters: Sorority Trouble →
Just got an e-mail from our chapter president, asking up to help our her friend from home who’s sorority is in jeopardy of being shut down for an illegitimate reason. Please read it and help out!
I NEED EVERYONES HELP! THIS IS FOR ANOTHER SORORITY IN NEED!
So I’m reaching out to you and your…
Let’s help them out ladies!
For us its to keep someone from speaking on behave of the sorority on non-related issues. If someone is interviewed about gun control for the school paper it shouldn't say that Jen K, the ZBZ president. thinks all guns are bad. Jen K can say whatever she wants, but it shouldn't come across as ZBZ thinks guns are bad. They want the messages about what we stand for to be congruent on a national level, therefore the sorority doesn't comment outside of philanthropy & other related things.
That makes sense! I just haven’t seen school newspapers do things like that. I have only seen it when it is regarding something the sorority is hosting.
Social Media Waivers
So I have seen a lot lately about these social media waivers. I understand their purpose. I really do. But are they not doing the exact opposite of what our sororities teach us? I don’t know about you, but my sorority challenges me and my Sisters to be smart, confident women. We are not the only sorority that promotes this idea.
I feel like the waivers are a way to allow sorority members to promote a false reality. Not everything is always perfect. Also, in regards to personal preferences (i.e. politics, religion, etc.) I feel like not allowing Sisters to wear letters or show what they prefer is negating the fact that all of us are different. We all come from different walks of life and we are allowed to have different beliefs. It is admirable that we could have a Sister proudly displaying her affiliation at a political rally for President Obama and another at a rally for Governor Romney.
I do agree that our Sisters should not air their dirty laundry all over the internet, but that is why we have our standards (not boards). If we are going to take the time to learn about our sororities, familiarize ourselves with the Ritual, and dedicate our lives to these organizations then we should at least have a little more respect for them than to put all of our drama on Facebook and Twitter.
I simply think these waivers are unnecessary. However, I am an alumna member. I do not see what is happening in chapters right now. So you tell me… are these waivers necessary?
what do you think of social media waivers? should chapters have them?
I’m not sure what you mean by social media waiver? What does it entail?
do you know anything about the recruitment process at University of Texas?
I do not personally, but I found this really great guide on their website that explains a lot of what you will need to know.
Any advice from Sisters out there?
