Brenna Yeager

Alpha Phi

Why she went Greek: “I went Greek because I wanted to be involved in a tradition greater and more impactful than just myself. I wanted to be surrounded by like-minded women who are as passionate, if not more, about friendship, our community, and our future.” (Photo via @brdy94)


Allie Sarachene

Why she didn’t go Greek: “I didn’t go Greek because I’m already involved with so many things on Kent State’s campus, from writing for their fashion magazine “A Mag,” to being a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista. I wanted to focus all the time I could to writing and blogging about fashion, and getting involved in more clubs of that nature.” (Photo via @alliesarachene)


Molly Bryant

Alpha Phi

Why she was nervous about going Greek: “Before deciding to go through the recruitment process, I had a negative stigma on the overall concept of a sorority. I always said it was something I would never be a part of, I never saw myself as a ‘sorority girl.’ Now that I am on the other side, I can confidently say that the typical sorority girl doesn’t exist and you get out what you put in. The idea may not be for everyone, but I think that many people would be surprised at how much they appreciate the community you become a part of and some of the amazing people you meet along the way. I am extremely grateful for the friendships and connections I have made through the Greek community here at Virginia Tech.” (Photo via @mollybryantx)


Suzie Baldwin

Why Greek Life wasn’t what she expected: “I joined because I thought it would be something I hadn’t experienced in college yet. I enjoyed it somewhat and met some pretty rad people in my short time being Greek. I basically had too much other stuff going on with my major to focus entirely on Greek life.” (Photo via @bohemianblondie)


Jordan Miller

Gamma Phi Beta

Her favorite part of being Greek: “My favorite part of being Greek is how there is always something fun to do. I always have a sister to go get coffee with, the house always has events planned like movie nights or date parties, there are just always things to do.” (Photo via @jordannnlee)


Rachel Gregson

Tri Sigma

What she’s received by being Greek: “I have received opportunities to plan events, raise money for philanthropy events, organize street clean ups, participate in other organizations events, and the opportunity to serve on our executive board to help better all of Greek life.” (Photo via @rachelgregson)


Ashleigh Angel

Her advice: “I think Greek life is such an interesting concept and would’ve done it my first two years of college if I would’ve known that I wouldn’t have had the chance to later on. I think it can be rewarding and know a lot of people who love it. I believe that it’s such a good way to meet friends and get involved in college. I know from friends that are in Greek life that it is a lot of work!” (Photo via @crayonstocouture)


Betty Lin

Delta Sigma Pi

Her advice: “If you haven’t checked out the Greek life on your campus, I highly advise that you do so. Also keep in mind that there are different types of Greek organizations such as professional and social sororities/fraternities and depending on the type of Greek organization you intend to join, the experience will vary.” (Photo via @bettylinn)
