my new sisters!


Exactly one week ago, I gained more sisters than I could ever hope for. As the youngest of two with only an older brother, I never got to experience the joy of having an older sister, a younger sister or even a twin sister. But after initiation last Tuesday, I gained 120 new sisters to share not only my time at Union with, but the rest of my life with. After a long new member education process, which only made the anticipation of finally becoming a sister even harder to bare, I, at long last, was accepted into the fold of Delta Delta Delta, Beta Psi. Before coming to college, the idea of joining a sorority would make me gag a little. I had lots of girlfriends, but I didn’t relish the idea of being forced into the sorority girl stereotype, and I didn’t want that stigma on me. But after just a term at Union as a freshman, I knew that I couldn’t wait to rush, and I finally got my opportunity this past fall. My new member education was the most rewarding experience of my life and I was given the amazing gift of befriending and loving 43 girls in my grade alone, developing a bond as a pledge class that goes beyond anything else. I have so much Delta Love pumping through my veins, and I am so happy to be able to say I’ve made the best decision of my life. Prospective students: don’t let the stereotypes of Greek life let you shy away from the idea of rushing or joining. I firmly believe that the camaraderie and lifelong relationships gained from joining a fraternity or sorority here on Union are positively invaluable.
