10 Things I Wish I Knew Before Joining A Sorority

Growing up, I didn’t know much about sororities because my mom wasn’t in one, and I don’t have any sisters. I wasn’t brought up under the idea that Greek Life was a thing. When I made the decision to go to the University of Alabama (Roll Tide, y’all), I knew that Greek Life was a big deal even though only about 30% of the campus joins a fraternity or sorority. Alabama wasn’t my first choice school, and I was planning to transfer second semester so I decided not to rush my freshman year.

A lot changed in that first semester of college, and I fell in love with my school. So I decided to rush my sophomore year along with one of my roommates. Both of us were more comfortable with a year under our belts. We had a ton of Greek friends and saw the amazing experiences they were having. But Alabama has the largest rush in the country, so it was a bit intimidating. That said, I had the most amazing time being in a sorority. I don’t even say I was in a sorority, I say I am in one because my sisterhood is so important to me.

Deciding to join a sorority is a really big step. You’re committing to an organization and pledging to be a part of something, and it shouldn’t be taken lightly. If you’re thinking about rushing, here are some things you should know.
