The time is coming close where you are looking to join a sorority. This may seem scary, but I am going to give you some tips to take the ease off you a bit.
- I highly suggest you research the sororities here on campus. All the national sororities here on campus are on social media. On this campus we have Alpha Epsilon Phi, Delta Phi Epsilon, Phi Sigma Sigma, and Sigma Delta Tau.
- The sisters in the sorority are just as nervous as you are. They don’t know you, and you don’t know them. The best thing to do is just have a normal conversation with a sister to break the silence.
- Do not just follow what your roommate is doing. If your roommate wants to join a different sorority than you, let her! At Oswego we are all friends. National Sororities are social sororities. You will be able to see her and hang out with her still.
- Honestly, be yourself. Don’t try to be someone you are not, or say something just to impress people. They will like you for you.
- Make sure you ask questions. You don’t want to join a sorority if it doesn’t fulfill everything you want.
Remember, research, be yourself, be outgoing, make your own decisions, and lastly, enjoy yourself!
Hi, my name is…if you thought I was going to say, Slim Shady, I think we will get along great and if you didn’t we’ll still get along great!
My name is Bridget Rooney and I am currently a second semester senior here at Oswego. Time really does fly when you’re having fun! I am pursuing a dual degree in business administration and public relations. My minor is international business studies and my concentration is business marketing (I know it’s a mouth full). This semester I am a social media intern for the office of marketing and communications as well as working for Campus Life in the Campus Recreation department. I am a student supervisor for Intramural sports on campus.
My hobbies include playing intramural sports, rapping to old school hip hop, and making omelets. My deepest fear is butterflies and that isn’t a joke.
Throughout my 4 years here at Oswego, I have been really active in our school community. I am excited to talk about my past experiences, as well as what I will be doing to prep for the real world which is approaching at a rather hasty rate. Picking SUNY Oswego was to this day one of the best decisions I have ever made. I am excited to have the opportunity to share with potential students that when you pick Oswego you don’t just pick a great school, you get a new home and new family.
