The phrase, “the more you put in, the more you get out,” is true in everything you do. Whether it is in class, on the job, or working out, you have to give a little to get anything in return. As you’ve heard, recruitment has finished, and the new pledge classes have been chosen. Being a new member within such a large community can be scary, so I have a little bit of advice that will help you out.
Aside from the great tailgates, parties, and formals, you will learn that being involved within your sorority will have a very positive impact on your future. Having a leadership position in your house is a great resume builder and will prepare you for internships to come. Having these responsibilities will help you develop better time-management skills, organizational skills, and great communication skills that will be essential for any career you choose to pursue after graduation.
The Support Network
Being in a sorority is not only great while you’re an active member, but it is also great even after graduation. It’s a support network that never goes away. It’s a comforting feeling knowing that you can always go back to visit your chapter and participate in meetings and philanthropies. The bond between sisters is one that will last forever.
It’s important to be involved within your house, but it’s also important to be involved within the Greek community. Making friendships and connections with other houses will mold you into a well-rounded person, and you will be able to learn about the similarities and differences among all of the houses. If you put in the time to get involved, then you will get so much more out of being a member in the Greek community.
