The Cause for Being Greek

Being Greek is the best choice a lady can make.

Ever seen the movie Serendipity?  It’s a romantic movie about destiny.  If you haven’t seen it, hop online and watch.  This romantic notion of serendipity says that if it’s meant to be it will work out.  What about this idea in regards to the other facets of your life?

College is a chance to start fresh.  Think of what you want for your college experience.  What’s your heart’s desire?  Involvement on campus?  Meeting people and developing friends?  Growing as a leader?  Obtaining a degree?  Travel and adventure?  Greek Life opens the doors for all of these experiences.  Joining a sorority is a lifetime of friendships, leadership and learning.

The next four years are going to be amazing.  You will change more than you can imagine.  You are becoming an independent woman.  You are finding out who you are, what you believe and where you want to go.  You are shaping your destiny.  Being Greek provides support and opportunity to grow into this woman.

By being Greek at Texas A&M University, you will share this experience with 225 other women in your chapter and the 2,700 Panhellenic women on campus.  This core group of friends will be there to share everything with you.  From Bid Day to initiation and Ring Day to graduation.

I’m sure you have heard the statistics about how sorority women’s grades are better than the average student at A&M (this is true), how many CEO’s and members of Congress are Greek.  These things may sound far away and not at all applicable to you…but they are…this is you…when you accept your bid you will join the largest student organization on campus.  A small group within the enormous student body at Texas A&M University.

Being Greek will be an amazing choice to shape your destiny.  You may not control everything, but going Greek is a step in the right direction.  A wise man sang, “You can’t always get what you want…you get what you need.”  You need to be Greek.  You will not regret it.
