Sorority Wisdom

As a recent alumni, I’ve had a lot of time this summer to sort of reflect back on my three years in my sorority.  The years I spent in Alpha Xi Delta were by far the best years and most fulfilling in my life thus far.  Starting out as a shy, quiet girl while pledging and blossoming into a confident, outgoing sister who became a strong leader in the house.  I never realized the things that could possibly come out of joining a sorority, but AXiD truly helped me grow as a person and as a successful woman.

My junior year in the chapter I was elected as the Public Relation Vice President on the executive board.  This position was something that wasn’t really used to its full potential in the past, and I knew I wanted the position to be all that it could be in order to advance the chapter as much as possible in the short year I had it for.  

Most people see public relations as its literal meaning: relationships with the public.  What few realize is that it is so much more than that in sorority life.  Sure there will be times where the chapter has to form relationships with the student body through events and fundraisers and really get their name out on campus, but what I learned from this position is that is is really marketing the sorority to potential members, other students, and even staff.  

Think of your sorority as a product, or a brand.  People may or may not know about it in your area (the university or college campus), maybe they can’t even pronounce the letters (a Xi, Ξ, is pronounced like the letter Z when saying it in Alpha Xi Delta FYI).  As the PRVP, you must market your sorority in a way that everyone will at least know the name.  This comes in handy when it comes to recruitment, because potential new members will already know about you a little bit, and hopefully will like what they see.  

As PRVP I found myself doing so many things that fell under advertising or marketing, that the position’s title was a little misleading.  I made flyers, posted Facebook statuses and pictures, kept up with an Instagram and Twitter, and basically promoted AXiD in any way possible.  If you think of your sorority as a product that you are trying to sell, it is wasier to come up with creative and fresh ideas to put yourself out there.  Think of a logo (things like your letters, mascots, flowers, colors, etc.) and use them in everything you do.  This helps develop your sorority into a brand.  

For example, think of your favorite brand you shop for.  I guarantee you know their colors, what their logo looks like, and other details that identify them in seconds.  If you are able to establish the same recognition with your sorority, you will not only have amazing PR but you will be known on your campus by virtually everyone and you will stop getting the same comments like, “Alpha What Delta?”

"I was told
The average girl begins to plan her wedding at the age of 7
She picks the colors and the cake first
By the age of 10 
She knows time,
And location
By 17
She’s already chosen a gown
2 bridesmaids
And a maid of honor
By 23 
She’s waiting for a man
Who wont break out in hives when he hears the word “commitment”
Someone who doesn’t smell like a Band-Aid drenched in lonely
Someone who isn’t a temporary solution to the empty side of the bed
Someone
Who’ll hold her hand like it’s the only one they’ve ever seen
To be honest
I don’t know what kind of tux I’ll be wearing
I have no clue what want my wedding will look like
But I imagine
The women who pins my last to hers
Will butterfly down the aisle
Like a 5 foot promise
I imagine
Her smile
Will be so large that you’ll see it on google maps
And know exactly where our wedding is being held
The woman that I plan to marry
Will have champagne in her walk
And I will get drunk on her footsteps
When the pastor asks
If I take this woman to be my wife
I will say yes before he finishes the sentence
I’ll apologize later for being impolite
But I will also explain him
That our first kiss happened 6 years ago
And I’ve been practicing my “Yes”
For past 2, 165 days
When people ask me about my wedding
I never really know what to say
But when they ask me about my future wife
I always tell them
Her eyes are the only Christmas lights that deserve to be seen all year long
I say
She thinks too much
Misses her father
Loves to laugh
And she’s terrible at lying
Because her face never figured out how to do it correctly
I tell them
If my alarm clock sounded like her voice
My snooze button would collect dust
I tell them
If she came in a bottle
I would drink her until my vision is blurry and my friends take away my keys
If she was a book
I would memorize her table of contents
I would read her cover-to-cover
Hoping to find typos
Just so we can both have a few things to work on
Because aren’t we all unfinished?
Don’t we all need a little editing?
Aren’t we all waiting to be proofread by someone?
Aren’t we all praying they will tell us that we make sense
She don’t always make sense
But her imperfections are the things I love about her the most
I don’t know when I will be married
I don’t know where I will be married
But I do know this
Whenever I’m asked about my future wife
I always say
…She’s a lot like you"

"Meredith is the girl who put her hand on a bomb in a body cavity. Meredith is the girl who tried to help a serial killer kill himself, so that he could donate his organs. Meredith—and this is obvious—has a compass that has always led her to shades of grey. She does not believe in black-and-white, she does not believe in good or bad, she does what she thinks is right."  Ellen Pompeo
