You will feel much more connected to your school and be able to participate in lots of great events including philanthropy competitions, socials, formals, semi-formals, date functions, sisterhood events and retreats, etc.
During rush, I tell the girls that if you wanted to be busy every day, you could be!
It is also a time committment, but with minimal planning, you can easily fit it into your schedule.
I absolutely HATE the excuse, "I just don't have time." Just as an example (not to brag), I am a director in my sorority, president of an honor society, full-time student, on a psychology research team, have a part-time job, a committed boyfriend, and to top it off..
Most importantly, you will feel the indescribable bond of sisterhood.
