Sorority Sisters Seek Students Selectively!

Ramesh C. Reddy

Pittsburgh Standard

Editors Note: This is an impressions piece on Greek Life!

Last month, Greek Life had their rush event to entice students to join their Greek organization whether it was a sorority or fraternity. Most of the sororities on campus are located in Amos Hall with each floor filled with their sororities’ fame, fun, and fortune whether it is winning Homecoming Queen, Greek goddess, Greek Week, etc.

I had the opportunity to chat with Mistica Labrasca, the president of Chi Omega and Lisa Nichols, the president of Delta Zeta. They shared with me how they intended to lure prospective pledges into their sororities.

 As ‘Meet the Greeks’ occurred inside the William Pitt Union to introduce students to the Greek System, there were pledges excited to join the sororities. I had the opportunity to report on their excitement, waiting to go into Amos Hall, during bid night few days later.

 There is a stereotype out there that sororities and fraternities are mostly known for drinking, getting drunk, partying, etc, this is not what sororities and fraternities should be remembered for. There are many Greek life students that are involved in many philanthropic activities which I am a huge fan off! Also, not everyone involved in Greek Life participates in negative things.

My advice is stay away from the bad influential things and stick with the good things of Greek Life! I personally do not support drinking, getting drunk, partying, etc because of my faith in Jesus Christ and because in the long run it is not good for the students.

However, I am all about fundraising and charity events that raise money for a good cause! I am also all about community where each sister or brother helps each other out and takes care of each of their needs! There are many fun events and contests students can be part of such as Greek Sing, Greek Week, Student Government Board, etc without getting into trouble!
