Cubic:

When youíre standing in line outside Cubic the girls are banging on the walls they are so excited to get to talk to you and meet you! I started shaking, smiling, and getting butterflies. Cubic was not my favorite coming into the whole process, however, I knew they had an incredible reputation and that so many girls wanted them this year. I knew it would be competitive trying to get into Cubic. When I walked in it was an immediate ray of light, the house was so open, comforting, and homey. So many of my upperclassmen friends that I knew were in Cubic, I had no idea they were in Cubic before then. I had girls coming up to me hugging me, waving at me, and smiling at me. I felt loved and accepted. It wasnít like any other house I felt the need to fake a smile and try to put on a front, maybe even change my answers to what they wanted to hear. However, at Cubic I was myself, I felt like I could be silly, could be loud, could take off my makeup and still feel comfortable being at Cubic. By the end of the day I knew Cubic was my one, surpassing every single sorority.
The second day I talked to multiple girls at Cubic which was very overwhelming. When I talked to one particular member for the first time I knew we had an immediate connection. She made me so happy and comfortable so when she smiled at me I truly felt special. By the end of the second day Cubic was still my favorite and I was sad when I had to leave the house.

The third day was sisterhood round. The video was so silly and goofy and it was done so well. I longed to be a part of the sisterhood I saw on the screen. I talked to this beautiful girl, whose eyes lighted up and her beauty was alarming. She was yesterdayís memberís little and she was from my home state too. That day I just had long nice conversations. I still felt incredibly comfortable and was very happy. I met this other girl and clicked with her too, and she later tells me how cool she thinks I am. Sisterhood day really justified to me how much these girls love one another and really made me want to be part of it.

For pref day, I pref'd Cubic knowing that that was the one that Iíd end up writing down as my number one. On pref day I walked in and was grabbed by the girl I met on day 2. My heart lit up, I really can speak upon my connection with her enough. She makes me so happy! Itís like a breath of fresh air to know that someone gets and understands me like she does. Since preference round gets emotional due to all the speeches and songs we both teared up, even though we both agreed that we are not much of emotional criers. I knew this was it, this was the house and sisterhood that was right for me. The girls were down to earth, genuine, passionate, and active girls. They are truly inspirational and I knew I wanted to be a part of that. They believe in female empowerment and being the best woman that you can be. It didnít matter what happened at Tangent (the other one I prefíd) I knew it was going to be Cubic for me.

Tangent

Going into the whole process our pichi's said to go in with an open mind. Although I always heard the stereotypes about Tangent I did want to give it a chance.
The first day I was shocked, the two girls I talked to were beautiful, however, they seemed very normal. Unlike Sine, they seemed invested in talking and getting to know me and actually seemed interested in what I had to say. The environment of the room was happy, calm, peaceful, exciting, and although I was nervous and intimidated when it came to going into the house, I felt so at peace when I left. The girl and my conversation was strong and she made me feel as if she understood how I felt being a first year. By the end of the day Tangent was one of my tops and I knew/hoped I would be going back the next day. However, I also knew that they were very picky and cut a lot of girls.
The second day we talked about Elon, and it was a strong conversation and I felt very comfortable which is very important to me, however, we didnít make a huge. But I still liked Tangent and she still made me felt comfortable.
I was so happy when I found out that I had not been cut from Tangent, however, going into the house my girl seemed like she clearly did not spend a lot of time with her sorority, she was telling me about how she wasnít even present on bid day. She didnít seem to take the sorority stuff seriously. We talked about our favorite broadway shows and I really didnít have much of a connection with her, however, I had some upperclassmen come up to me, hug me, and make me feel comfortable. A sophomore from close to my home came up to me and I introduced myself and she seemed very sweet. Overall, I guess looking back maybe I shouldnít have written Tangent down on my pref card, however, I just assumed theyíd drop me so I wrote them.
It turns out that Tangent did not drop me, however, I was still excited to see them back on my card. This was the day where Iíd choose between Tangent and Cubic! When I walked in it was a very serious and emotional round. It was great to see a familiar face and really took off the pressure. I sat down and she stood next to me which made me feel awkward. She was shaky the whole time and the speeches although they were nice, did not touch me like the ones in Cubic. Although the speeches were about sisterhood, it reflected on the sisterhood of the girl who wrote the speech and the sister she was writing it to, it did not seem to reflect upon the whole sorority.

From there I walked up the hill in silence and put Cubic into the computer followed by Tangent. I was done and I had chosen the one I knew was right for me from day 1.

Student2 had a very successful recruitment and joyously accepted a bid to Cubic, which is Alpha Xi Delta!


I never received any information about Square Root, Quadratic, or Cosine.... so I don't know where they fell in the whole process.... Student2 had a tendency to leave things out of her geometry proofs, so maybe that's what happened here?
