There are many ways to gain this experience, whether it’s through student organizations, practicums, or experimental learning in the classroom. But overall, the best way is to get out there and experience it hands-on in the real world. And internships are your key to doing just that.
Whether you’re a freshman or living it up as a second semester senior, when you hear the phrase “date party” come out of the social chair’s mouth at chapter, a plethora of thoughts start to rush through your mind. When’s the date? What’s the theme? Do I have clinical that day or obligations the next morning? Who do I take? Could my new dress from Charlotte Russe that I bought because I just had to have it finally be put to use? If you love to be the life of the (date) party or if you’re on the fence about attending, here are some of the recurring thoughts that always seem to run through a sorority girls head pre-date party:
The decision to go Greek is never an easy one to make, and it will ultimately impact the next four years of your life. You struggle with the time commitment, the requirements, and the constant thought of “Is this right for me? Am I a sorority girl?”
I struggled with this decision two and a half years ago, but I looked past everything that made me nervous about Greek life. I discovered what it truly meant to be in a sorority, and I can honestly say that was the best decision I made. Throughout my college years, I have developed both personally and professionally, while also gaining a wide variety of experiences.
Plus, I could never trade the life-long relationships and countless memories for anything.
