How hard is it to get into a sorority?
With sororities, there isn’t really a yes or no answer to tell you. However, I can tell you this. Panhellenic sororities, you can find them on Facebook under the name “Penny Panhellenic,” they usually have a set fall recruitment date and the process is fairly clear cut. You will be able to find a lot of information on each sorority on one of the days within the first couple weeks where they have a big club sign up outside of the Webb Center. If you have further questions, I would suggest friending the sorority on Facebook. It is all about showing interest and connecting with the sorority that you think you would fit into. I don’t think you will have a tough time with the recruitment process as long as it is something you are committed too. Good luck and well wishes!
Is it weird living on the same hall as guys?
It is a bit of an adjustment, but it’s really not as “weird” as you might think. Dorm living, in general, is different from any other type of living experience. People are usually very friendly, leaving their door open while they’re in their room, trying to get to know people and usually playing some music. Other than that, I wouldn’t worry too much about the guys. I lived on a floor of almost all guys my freshman year, and they most definitely added a lot more life to the hall. But most of the time they just kind of chilled and did their own things which were videogames mostly. My advice is to just relax, there will be people you like and some you don’t.
