In other words, it's not tolerated. Besides, we are all friends and we really wanted the new members that we got, why should we make them do anything? I find hazing stupid, we all do. And we care about each other so that would never happen.
Pranks on the other hand, those are fun. They're never too far or mean though. I helped stuff a girl's room with blown up balloons once. It was hilarious to hear her yell "WHAT THE HELL?!"
It's just a great support system here and I couldn't imagine going through college without all of the wonderful women I live with.
Oh good. I wanted to join one but I hear it's crazy expensive and I don't know any where I may be going (either UF or FAU) and then I heard about hazing rumors. I never understood the whole hazing thing why do something so mean? But what you are telling me gives me a lot of hope, do they accept every girl? Or is it a certain type? I'm sort of, shy and not good around new people.
Ah, college pranks are the best. At least yours aren't too bad. It sounds like a great big family away from the family.
It was only expensive the first semester for me because I was paying my room/board and meal plan fees and the new member dues. But, I saved a lot after I moved in. I'm actually saving about 2000 dollars this year because I don't have to pay as much for room/board AND a meal plan.
My campus has a thing against hazing here as well as my chapter not tolerating it. We have a great Greek community.
And Rush/Recruitment is a mutual process. Not only do you choose a house, they have to choose you too. And don't worry about being shy. Everyone feels awkward during recruitment and they're just as nervous as you are, I know that for a fact since I've been on both sides of the process. I usually suck around new people too, but I felt like I knew those girls for years just after talking to a few of them for 10 minutes. AXO also helped me develop my people/social skills so I'm not as awkward as I was. I find myself going through situations that I thought were difficult last year with ease now.
And every sorority on every campus is different. At my university, Alpha Chi Omegas are the studious, very involved sorority on campus.
Again, for the certain type of girl question, its a mutual thing. It all depends on what house you feel most comfortable with and if they want you there too. I felt the most at ease, comfortable, and welcome at AXO so I placed my bid with them.
I have nothing but positive things to say after that decision lol
Wow. I'm impressed. All that money for the first year is astonishing. I imagine that you do, is it close-knit too? So the house has to choose you as well? What do they base their choice off of? Social skills? Grades? Looks? I'm a bit awkward and so is my best friend any tips on how to be less awkward? Oh. So it's all about comfort huh? Do you get along well with your roommate(s)?
It's very close-knit. My closest friends live right down the hall from me and I always have someone to talk to if I need advice or help on something. It's also great to have older girls who took the same classes you're taking because they can help you with that too.
It depends on the standards the chapter is looking for. Yes, they're looking for certain things but every sorority is different. I can tell you one thing, though. Looks have absolutely NOTHING to do with the choosing process on the sorority's side. We didn't vote on girls just because they were cute or pretty. We were looking for quality girls who have good character and could make our chapter better. We wanted girls who seemed like they wanted to be involved and stuff like that. Looks really have nothing to do with it.
And yes, they do look at how involved you were and how your grades are, but that just tells them more about your character.
I was a shy awkward turtleduck during recruitment, so it's okay if you're a little awkward because the whole situation is amazing yet awkward at the same time. I guess my only tip is to be genuine. Don't try to be someone else, just be genuine. And if you have questions or concerns, ASK. They will gladly answer any question you have to make you feel more comfortable.
Yes, it's all about comfort and finding that group of girls YOU want to be with. They also have to want you, but that's one of the great things about the process. I felt like I had 40 new friends when I joined and I didn't even know some of the girls that well. It really is a sisterhood and a family away from the family.
I get along splendidly with my roommates. I'm in a two person now and my roommate and I are good friends. Its not like living in the dorms because we get to pick which room we want and we also pick who we live with. This is my second semester here and my only complaint is how much hair gets all over the place, but, we're girls so it can't be avoided lol
