Have you ever seen the movie Legally Blonde starring Reese Witherspoon? It is one of my all time favorite movies and features a more accurate view of Greek life than other movies do. With supportive sisters, Elle Woods is able to make it to Harvard and become a successful lawyer!
Greek life is a way to make connections and get involved on campus. There are a total of 4 different organizations to choose from, including two fraternities and two sororities. The two fraternities are Alpha Sigma Phi and Sigma Alpha Epsilon.The two sororities are Phi Sigma Sigma and Theta Phi Alpha, which is the one I am a part of.
I was drawn to Theta Phi Alpha because I immediately felt like a part of the family. I get the opportunity to work with Lifebridge shelter in downtown Salem, work with the children of Salem public schools, meet others from Greek life, and have a home away from home. With so many different types of girls, but all so passionate and loving, I am proud to be known as a sorority girl.
Like Legally Blonde, Greek life is a way to join a supportive and compassionate community of men and women who share the same values as yourself. With philanthropic, social, fundraising and so many more events, joining a sorority and fraternity is a great way to create that home away from home right here on campus.
If you are interested, recruitment for the sororities start October 6th, 2015. Recruitment for the fraternities start the next week, October 13th, 2015.
