Tradition Worth Preserving.

When it comes to incoming college freshman I can’t help but give the advice to join Greek life. For a fact I know that my college experience wouldn’t have been the same if I didn’t decide to rush my sophomore year. Greek life allowed me to make friends, grow as an individual, gain confidence, break…

Beginning of the End.

That point in the semester has arrived. We have two weeks left until finals week and four weeks until graduation. I have a month left of school and I have no idea how I am supposed to feel about it. Everyone has always told me that there comes a point when you realize you’re ready…

Senior Wills.

Senior or not, everyone in a sorority looks forward to senior week for one thing, senior wills. Senior wills are a time where the sisters going alum get to give away all their sorority memorabilia to the underclassmen. Fraternity shirts, buttons, flags, and pint glasses (to name a few) are passed down. For seniors it’s…

Stuck in the Search.

I recently came across an article looking in depth at the current issue that recent college graduates are becoming stuck with low wage jobs as the hiring market heats up. It’s interesting to see that as of 2016 44% of the recent college graduate population became employed in jobs not requiring a college degree. As…

Going Out In Style.

Ah formal season. We all look forward to it every semester. Even the guys. But there’s something bittersweet about attending your last sorority formal. There aren’t formals in the real world. There aren’t many reasons or excuses to dress up and get fancy.  Formals in college gave us that excuse after what we thought would…

Greek Life Crackdown.

In a recent article I came across, Penn State announced a Greek life crackdown after a freshman passed away in February of this year after falling off the roof of his fraternity during a party. Damon Sims, the vice president for Student Affairs at Penn State, released a press release saying that Penn State is…

Lunch Time.

´╗┐Who doesn’t love lunch time? A time in the middle of the day to stop whatever it is you’re doing and take a break to eat.  Personally for me I love lunch. Getting to catch up with my friends while we bond over our love of food. Living in a sorority lunch time is brought…

Searching.

As the hype of spring break dies down, reality is setting in that graduation is around the corner. See I am even admitting to using graduation as a word now. Figuring out what to do after graduation is tough and entering the job market seems to be even worse. But I recently came across a…

But For Life.

Not four years, but for life. Every sorority says it, but does every sorority mean it? Joining a sorority in college can open up a lot of doors. The opportunities are endless when it comes to socializing and always having something to do. But when going through recruitment sororities always push the fact that “it’s…

That Time of the Semester.

It’s that time of the semester. Spring break. As college students, this is what we look forward too. The only break we truly have during spring semester. Our halfway point. But for me it’s bittersweet. Halfway through my last semester of college. My last college spring break. From here on out I have about six…

Where Purdue Students Go.

Where do Purdue students go after graduation? There are so many Purdue graduates each year and so many options on what to do and where to go after graduation. So where do they all go? The Purdue Center for Career Opportunities, also known as the CCO around campus, sends out a survey each May for…
