Greek Life is the life for me! And you! Go Greek!
I am apart of the TAMUCC Gamma Phi Chapter of Delta Delta Delta! When i was rushing i was very optimistic, it was more of a experience opportunity. I told myself that if i did not get a bid from a chapter that I still get to say that I rushed and got to see what it is about, plus I was a little distant towards the idea especially after hearing about the stereotypical background of sororities. Was I ever so wrong?! The moment I walked into the Tri Delta room I instantly clicked with the girls and they proved all my notions wrong about the stereotypes of sorority girls. Every sorority and fraternity is different at all campuses, but we go beyond the red solo cup. Joining a fraternity or sorority is an excellent way to meet people and establish life-long friendships. Each organization plans social events to strengthen friendships within the chapter and allow for social interaction with members of other groups. Having a positive social environment provides a well-rounded college experience and eases the adjustment to a new environment.Sororities and fraternities recognize the need and concern throughout the year to raise money and donate time for their special philanthropies and service projects. Often the Greek community comes together to benefit worthwhile programs, as well as sponsoring community- based programs like Habitat for Humanity. Each year, philanthropic events allow Greeks to contribute their time and effort in many ways and benefit the community by generating hundreds of hours of service and thousands of dollars in fund raising. I am so glad I ended up going through with rush and receiving a bid from Tri Delta. My sisters are my saving grace and I have grown into someone that I can be proud of. Striving to do better with my others and influences others in positive aspects. Our philanthropy is St. Jude Children's Hospital and every penny, every event we establish all proceeds go to St. Jude. The patients of St. Jude are very important to us, and that alone is our motivators. My sisters are my heart and all. Greek Life has been the best decision in my college career! No matter the differences, we are all brothers and sisters and we come together to grow our chapters and ourselves.
