Greek is Greek Link-Up!

Tuesday, August 6, 2013

When Kristyn from Carolina Fireflies, one of my best friends and sorority sister, told me about her Greek is Greek link-up I started digging through Facebook for old pictures.

For a portion of my college career I was a member of the Gamma Phi Beta sorority at FSU.

It was an experience I wouldn't trade for anything, and when chatting about it with Kristyn the other night I told her I would probably make a better sorority sister now than I did when I was in college!

I joined Gamma Phi Beta my sophomore year, and was active all through my junior year.
Being in a sorority was a great experience for me, and if I have a little girl I hope she chooses to go Greek in college as well. 

Once senior year rolled around my life changed a bit, and the sorority was no longer at the top of my priority list.

What changed? 

Well, I started dating the man who would later become my husband.

We lived 3 hours apart, and it was too difficult for me to keep up my sorority obligations (Sunday night chapter meetings, social events, volunteering) as well as a long distance relationship.

I became inactive a couple of months into my senior year, which at the time was the best decision for me.

I've looked into becoming a Gamma Phi alum, and once we move back to the States hopefully I will be able to.

Were you Greek in college?
