I have no background in Greek life what so ever since my parents immigrated to the US! They weren't against me rushing, but they were a little worried about the system.

I decided to name the sororities after some of the favorite beauty brands! The sororities are:

Benefit
Mac
Urban Decay
Laura Mercier
Makeup Forever
Stilla
Nars
Tarte


The order on the first day was:
Tarte
Urban Decay
Laura Mercier
Nars
Makeup Forever
Mac
Stilla
Benefit

Tarte:
I was really nervous about my first party. I didn't know anything about these girls since their "Get To Know Me" events were always at the same time as my Bible study. The first girl I talked to was really nice. We just talked about the basic questions and then she sat me down for their chants. The songs were really cute and I left the room humming to it! The second girl I talked to was kinda awkward, but I didn't really let that phase me.

Urban Decay:
I was really excited for this party since a really good friend of mine is in this sorority! She pretty much tackled me when I walked in the door and took me to meet her friends! We pretty much just did catching up since we had already knew each other!

Laura Mercier:
This was my favorite house from the first semester! I got picked up my a girl I didn't know, but we hit it off talking! We didn't have that much in common, but we just talked about traveling! Their song was amazing and super loud! The girls there seemed like they really love their sorority!

Nars
I came into the room thinking I wouldn't like this sorority very much. However I was so wrong! The girl that picked me up was amazing! We talked about how it was like not growing up in the US and how it was like growing up with another culture! She got all her friends to come talk to me! I was even the last person to the leave the room because she wanted me to meet more people!!

Makeup Forever
This was the house I liked the least for their first semester events. The girl that picked me up was super super boring and just tripped over her words. The whole time I just wanted her to bump me to another person! However the other two girls I talked to were amazing! I wanted to give this chapter another chance!

Stilla
I really really loved this sorority the first semester, but their party was a little bland for me. I just talked about the basics with the girls that talked to me.

Nars
This house had the highest GPA on campus, so I was kinda nervous about coming here. I had a great conversation with the girl that got me! I even met a girl who had lived in the same country that I had!

Benefit
This house was kinda meh to me. I have friends in this sorority, but I didn't really feel like I belonged there. I love their philanthropy though!

My bottom two were:
Tarte
Benefit


I'll update y'all tonight or tomorrow!!!
QFP.
Plus, the word you want is FAZE. "...I really didn't let that FAZE me."
