I enjoyed reading Goffman article “The presentation of self in everyday life”, it reminded me of sorority recruitment or “Rush” as it was formally referred to. With Henslin introduction and quoting Shakespeare I was able to reflect to sorority life. Depending on what sororities are present on campus could affect the how rush is perceived. There are days were the chapter all matches and everyone appears to be friendly and interested in the potential recruits. The potential recruits want these upperclassman to like them and invite them into this secret organization.

Given the initial assessment of Beta Gamma Nu and the goals that I have for the organization, these will be the ways which we will accomplish those goals: When it comes to continue to build deep relationships with other chapters in Multicultural Greek Council (MGC), we will be attempting to reach every organization through socials and workshops around our philanthropy of “B Fit”. Our organization will be hosting a social with Alpha Phi Gamma Multicultural Sorority by playing volleyball with each prospective interest of our organization. This corresponds to being physically and mentally fit and is beneficial to potential members of MGC to learn about other organizations under council. We will also be participating in a Salsa Night with Kappa Delta Chi Multicultural Sorority as a way to practice for our upcoming Fall Ball Suicide Awareness. It is also useful in gaining an appreciation for the culture of salsa and to connect with the
Everything in life has its pros and cons, but there’s a reason why Greek Life still remains on so many college campuses around the world. Although to some, it’s the gateway to the party scene, Greek life is much more deeper. Stephanie Henry, sophomore at Michigan State University (MSU), is an active member in Delta Gamma-Beta Xi Chapter. Not only is she an active member, but she is also Vice President of Programming and in charge of planning out the entire schedule for the chapter and all the sisterhood events (S. Henry, personal communications, August 4, 2015).
1. Description A. At my previous University, Notre Dame of Maryland University, I belonged to a student run organization by the name of S.W.E.E.T; Strong Women Empowering Encouraging Transforming. The mission statement of the organization is to create a diverse sisterhood that encourages Notre Dame women to honor themselves and instill integrity through community and charity involvement, as well as learning many ways one can express themself through creative outlets. The organization was composed of at least 30 members and 4 E-Board members one of which including myself.
From the moment they step onto their college campuses for freshman orientation, undergraduate students are encouraged to get involved and make the most of their college experience. Joining Greek life by way of social sororities and social fraternities is a well-known way for undergrads to do this both on their college campuses and within the community. Despite the opportunities that these organizations offer, some colleges and universities are considering whether or not to continue offering their students the opportunity to join such Greek organizations on their campuses due to many recent incidents within the last decade. The New Jersey Institute of Technology has shared statistics on members of fraternities and sororities on their website such as there being 9 million Greeks nationally, 43 of the nation’s 50 largest corporations being headed by fraternity men, along with 85% of Fortune 500 executives and 40 of the 47 U.S. Supreme Court Justices since 1910 and that over 70% of Greeks graduate while under 50% of non-Greek students graduate, among other
There 's always the one question in life that gets asked, “What do you want to do when you grow up?” Even when students or adults are all grown up they still ask that question. The thing is, they will always question themselves, they will question themselves until they believe they accomplished their goals. Furthermore, finding a college without a certain career in mind is difficult. Even if someone does have their mind set on a career it’s still challenging, because they don 't know if that college is best for them.
I joined Poudre High School’s Service Club as a sophomore, after my history teacher invited our class to help sustain the fading organization. My previous service experience was limited to Girl Scouts and the occasional charity run, and I hoped that Service Club would help me broaden my narrow horizons. Despite my initial excitement, I was disappointed by my first meeting: barely ten people were there, and the club was permeated by a sense of vague apathy. Nevertheless, despite the club’s desultory condition, I didn’t miss a meeting for the rest of that year, convinced that new leadership would bolster our cause when we held elections at the end of the year. I had never been a candidate in an election before, and my heart was pounding as I announced my run for vice-president.
Like plenty of other girls, I never saw myself joining a sorority. I also lacked the self-esteem to believe that I would actually receive a bid from any sorority. However, in my first semester of being a freshman; I decided to participate in fall recruitment. Upon receiving a bid for Alpha Sigma Tau, I immediately felt a change taking place within myself.
Outside of my sorority, I am involved in a few different things. I am a Peer Adviser, which has taught me so much about how to make the Northwestern community welcoming, as well as how to discuss difficult topics such as sexual assault and mental health. Helping students work through these sensitive issues and helping them find the resources they need all while navigating the novelty of college life has given me a wide variety of skills that I believe translate directly to sorority life. I also am highly involved in Northwestern’s dance community. I am a member of New Movement Project, a group of dance majors and minors that coordinates dance events and organization for both the dance department and Northwestern’s many dance groups.
