Thinking About Joining a Sorority?
Through high school, sorority life was something that I was completely unfamiliar with, and coming to Troy I had no intention of going through recruitment. However, after some convincing from my IMPACT Leader and costs established to give my parents, I registered last minute! My roommate and I went through together, making a few friends along the way, caught up i the whirlwind of events and many, many new faces. Because I had no prior knowledge of any of the houses, I was able to come into Recruitment with a completely clean slate.
It was a tough week of prioritizing what I wanted out of my Greek experience, but the best advice came from a sister I spoke with halfway through the week. She told me to search for the sorority that I felt I could be myself, the most comfortable, and where I could thrive and grow as a woman of virtue! I want to share this advice with you as you potentially embark on this adventure of recruitment as it helped me to find my home in Chi Omega. Since joining the sorority over five years ago, I have been overwhelmed with the amazing experiences, growth, and connections Greek life has given me. From encouragement in my scholastics and my faith, to networking for my future job opportunities, I couldn't be more thankful for Greek life here at Troy, and the advice given to me by a sister during my recruitment week!
