sorority sugar

Hi! I'm a highschool student interested in rushing in a few years. I've seen pictures of new members of sororities and they seem to instantly become friends with their older sisters of their new sorority. How does a pledge begin make friends with their sisters or girls of their pledge class? Thanks! :)

The BEST part of sorority membership is all the organization! This is especially nice for freshman, because greek life offers a very structured way to make friends. You don’t have to fend for yourself. There will be so many meetings, meals, activities, socials, retreats and sisterhood events, that you can’t help but bond with your new sisters. Your pledge class will do a lot together, you will be matched with a big sister and get to know your new family tree, there will be tons of fraternity parties, volunteering, fundraising, sporting events, etc… In fact there is so much happening in the greek community, most girls find it to be practically overwhleming. You will need to pace yourself. 

When you first join a chapter the sisters will all congratulate you on facebook, you will start being invited out, the meetings and parties start right away and you are instantly launched into the greek social swirl. It’s fun, exciting and never a dull moment. Making friends is one of the easiest parts of joining a sorority. Keeping those friendships on an even keel is the hard part! xoxo ;)

Hi, I don't know if this will be unprecedented that a guy comments but, in regards to the dual enrollment question. Depending on but MOST LIKELY the "GPA" in those dual credit classes will not transfer over to the university. It'll just look more like a pass/fail class, the credit will transfer just not the grade. When I was in high school that was one of the biggest questions we all had.

Guys are always welcome to comment on sorority sugar! And some have before. Thank you for the clarification on college courses taken in HS. All the college credit business makes my head spin! xoxo ;)

Hi! I'm a senior and I'm graduating early May and normally my chapter will order graduation stoles in bulk, but this year because we had such a large senior class it was harder to organize and we have to order them individually. I waited pretty late and am having a difficult time finding a quality site for graduation stoles that weren't outrageously expensive and was wondering if you had any site to recommend? Thank you in advance!

I highly recommend my Sweet Elite Sponsor GREEK U for custom graduation stoles! They offer all the greek letters, many different stole colors and lots of color options for the greek letters. Prices start as low as $19 for one.

Here are samples of the styles that can be ordered individually (others are by group order only):

So I'm graduating high school in May and rushing in the fall. In high school, I did this program called dual enrollment which allowed me to take college classes at a college so I'll already have a bunch of credits and a college GPA before rush even starts. Will they classify me as a sophomore even though I'm rushing as a first year in college student? And will they look at my high school or college GPA or both? My college GPA is 3.4/3.5 (HS 4.1) are these considered "solid GPA's" to rush with?

For recruitment you will be classified as the college views you. If you enter as a freshman according to the university, then you will rush as a freshman as well. Sororities will go by whatever your official college grade level is. They will consider ALL of your academics and combined GPAs. The same goes for transfer students who have a mixed bag of grades from different sources. PNMs should share their all of their academic achievements on their recruitment applications. 

Your specific GPA is rock solid and well above the minimum for recruitment. You will have no troubles in that department! xoxo ;)
