If you’re not involved in Greek Life, it can be difficult to understand the ins and outs of what it’s all about. Sometimes people can get so wrapped up in the misconceptions of sorority rush that they never learn what it’s really like to be a part of Greek Life. If you’re not in a sorority, here are some things that you may have heard, but are definitely NOT true.
1. Every girl in greek life is peppy AF all the time.
Rush and Bid Day videos don’t help this stereotype. Besides during recruitment, most of the girls are sitting in bed with a oversized shirt on watching Netflix.
2. Greek life is like a cult.
Even though they live together, they still have lots of friends outside of Greek Life.
3. Your outfit will make or break your rush experience.
As long as you’re not dressed inappropriately, the girls don’t care what you look like.
4. You have to move again into the house once you join.
Most sororities don’t require you to live in the house
5. Greek life is just partying.
This is the biggest lie. A lot of time is dedicated to meetings and organizing events.
6. Looks matter the most.
The girls really don’t care how you look. If you have a great personality, it will show no matter what.
7. People in Greek Life pay for their friends.
Not everyone in your sorority is best friends with each other, but when you do make friends through Greek Life it is like family; and that can’t be bought.
