Growing up, I was convinced that it was my life’s goal to follow in my mom’s footsteps as sorority girl. In fact, I was dead set on which sorority I wanted to be in. Now, I am a college graduate and didn’t join a sorority.
I’m okay with it.
I respect the pride of sorority sisters and how much they’ve gotten from it. I understand all the perks of sororities and all of the good they do. Sororities are so charitable and truly do some amazing work, but I don’t think they often realize how preachy it feels and how it feels as though we are being spoken down to. At the end of the day, it just wasn’t for me.
If I’m being honest, I transferred schools during the middle of my sophomore year. At my new school, there wasn’t a spring rush. When I was contemplating rushing that fall, I didn’t want to be a junior rushing with freshmen. I ditched the idea and didn’t look back.
