Recruit Your Heart Out

The week is upon us and I couldn't be more nervous, excited, or stressed out. It's the one week out of the year where sorority girls can brag about their organization and not get heat for it. It's the week of our lives, the week we prepare all year for, the week that keeps our organizations alive.

Recruitment. 

This is my last Fall recruitment, the real last recruitment won't be till next semester which is something I don't even want to think about. 

Recruitment is such a magical time in a college girl's life, both potential and active member. When you're going through recruitment, searching for the right sisterhood to call your home for the rest of your life, it's such an amazing feeling. It is indescribable. 

As an active, recruitment allows you to fall in love with your organization all over again. Your sisters are happy, telling stories about your organization and what it means to them, the potentials are filled with smiles and eager to learn about what makes your sorority special.

For me, recruitment is equally as wonderful (and stressful) because not only am I taking it from a Phi Sigma Sigma standpoint but also from a Greek council standpoint. Because I'm on the executive board for Greek council I get to encourage potentials to join us as a community, not just one single organization. It's amazing to be able to offer some advice to potentials on where they should spend the next four years, who they should choose.

My advice for anyone going through or thinking about recruitment is to go where your heart lies. You will know, I promise you. You will walk into a room, see the sisters, watch their slideshow, get to know them, and listen to their speeches and you will fall in love. The feeling will be so apparent in your heart you won't be able to deny it.

My love for my sorority fills me, it's better than any boy will ever be to me. Sorority life is something close to me heart and recruitment week is my bread and butter.

My beautiful chapter at Meet the Greeks last week


I'm so excited I could barely contain myself! All the hard work and dedication of the lovely recruitment chairs and committees along with the rest of the chapter comes down to this week. We are picking the future of our chapter, the future legacy that we will leave at Iona College and I'm just so happy. Stressed and nervous, but happy.

I'm ready to recruit my heart out and fall in love with Phi Sig all over again.
