When I came to school early for sorority recruitment, I didn’t know what to expect. I was 500 miles away from home and I knew maybe two people at USC, but I was excited to join a sorority and find a home away from home! Joining Greek life was one of the best decisions I’ve made during college! Being in a sorority has helped me find my people, my passion, and myself.
- My people
Because of Greek life, I’ve found my people! Whether it’s making late-night Cookout runs or going on weekend adventures to the beach, I’ve made the best memories with the best friends by my side. Beyond that, they’re my biggest encouragers and always the ones to wish me luck on a big exam or to celebrate victories with me. I have a team to root for and be proud of, and I have Greek life to thank for that!
- My passion
Being involved in Greek life has also helped me find my passions. Phi Mu is composed of such a diverse group of women. Everyone is involved in something unique and is passionate so many different things! Being in this environment has allowed me to be more confident in trying new things and discovering passions of my own! I even got to share a passion for service with other sisters when traveling to Honduras on a service trip last year.
People always say that who you surround yourself with is who you become and I can definitely attest to that statement. I feel accepted for who I am in the Greek community, but also encouraged to become a better version of myself. Being apart of Phi Mu has played a part in shaping me into the person that I am today!
If you’re reading this and you’re hesitant about going Greek, my biggest piece of advice is to go through recruitment and give it a try! You never know what you may find and it could truly change your whole college experience for the better.
