Pledging a Sorority: What It’s REALLY Like

3/24/2014

What really goes on during sorority pledging? While many collegiettes have gone through it, some who haven’t been in a sorority have no idea what the process is like. Luckily, Her Campus got the lowdown on what really happens in the life of a sorority pledge. Check it out!

Time Commitment

Pledging a sorority involves many different activities and meetings, many of which are mandatory. This means that for most collegiettes, pledging ends up being a huge time commitment.

New members spend a lot of time learning about the different aspects of their sorority. By the end of the pledging period, they’re expected to not only know about their sorority’s mission and values, but also about all of its current members.

“We had to learn literally everything,” explains Laura*, a collegiette at the University of North Carolina. “It was so dumb because none of that ever came up again, and I don’t think it served to bind us together in any way. We had to learn the history of the sorority, the dinner prayers, names of national leaders, etc.” 

Many sororities even have a sort of final entrance exam on what they’ve learned. Some sororities will expect pledges to learn miscellaneous facts about the sorority and its members and will be quizzed on them.

“We learned lots of history, for the most part,” says Hyanna from New York University. “We [had] weekly quizzes on PowerPoints about our sorority.”

Spring Break Survival Kit!

3/21/2014

Even though the weather during these first few days back from spring break has been anything but spring-like, thanks to Her Campus National and some amazing sponsors, we've been able to stay in the springtime spirit with our Spring Break Survival Kit! We have everything we need to get through these last (hopefully) cold days and get ready for sweet summertime.


What was included:

Her Campus Swag: A car decal, a cup, sunglasses, koozies and more! We always love getting goodies from HC.

neuro SLEEP: Neuro drinks have been all the rage recently and we were so happy to receive ones that would not only help us fall asleep quicker, but also wake up more refreshed! These drinks are a great, non-habit forming way to make sure you get a more restful night's sleep. neuro SLEEP is a tasty blend of goodnight nutrients like melatonin and magnesium specifically formulated to give you the most golden of slumbers. Plus, each one only has 35 calories!

TRESemmé Hair Kit: TRESemmé has provided us with samples of their 7 Day Keratin Smooth System that’s perfect to keep our hair frizz-free during Chapel Hill’s humid spring weather. The set comes with a shampoo, conditioner and the 7 Day Heat Activated Treatment. Share your #7DaysOfSmooth hair diary and show off your 7 hairstyle #selfies with us on Instagram. Don’t forget to tag @TRESemme and @HerCampus!

ZOTOS’ Biotera Ultra Color Care 5-in-1 Cleansing Conditioner: The conditioner is designed for dry and damaged color-treated hair, and will ensure your hair looks and feels healthier than ever. This one-step wonder product takes the place of your shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, leave-in detangler AND shine treatment!
