I think that’s exactly why she’s saying she “tried to drop” them instead of saying she cut them, which I’ve seen in other rush stories.

Round Three: Sisterhood


Once again I woke up bright and early for round three! I was so excited! I kept telling myself that as long as I had one of my top three (Virginia, New York, and New Hampshire) I would be happy. Once I got my schedule, I saw that I had all three. I had also received the max of 6 parties. I ended up with Virginia, New York, New Hampshire, Maryland, New Jersey, and South Carolina!


Virginia: The conversation here was so easy this round. The girl I talked to was so really about school and just life overall. I felt like I could be myself and speak honestly.

New York: OH MY GOODNESS!! The girl that rushed me here was amazing and we had so much in common. If I received a bid from this sorority, I definitely wanted her to be my big. I loved it even more here.

New Hampshire: The conversation was okay here this round. It definitely wasn't anything special. But I had loved this chapter so much in the previous rounds, I definitely still loved it after round three.

Maryland: I had a great conversation here and felt like I could make it my home if I got a bid from this house. My top three were still my top three though, so this house didn't move up any after round three.

New Jersey: I talked to a really sweet girl and had a very real conversation. We had a lot in common and we were very well matched. I left this house liking it.

South Carolina: This house was fun and easy this round. I had a good time but I didn't love it any more or any less.

At the end of round three, I had to drop from 6 houses to 2 houses. I wanted to pref New York and New Hampshire. In order, I ranked my bottom four:


1. Virginia
2. Maryland
3. South Carolina
4. New Jersey

Round Four: Preference

We had a couple days in between round three and round four and overall, I hadn’t been too nervous. No one I knew was nervous about getting “the call” and everyone was having a great first day of class. On the morning of preference, I got a text that my first party wasn’t until later in the day, but I still went to get my schedule bright and early! I knew I would be happy if I just got two of my top four! When I opened my list I saw that I was invited back to....New York and Virginia!!! I was so happy!

New York: This house was so emotional for me today. The song they sang as we walked in was so sweet and they made preference so personal. I cried here and was rushed by the same girl as in round three! It was amazing and I felt at home.

Virginia: Preference at this house was definitely more laid back and not as somber as New York! I had a wonderful, easy conversation with the girl I was rushed by. I felt like myself here and like I wasn’t being judged. I knew I could be at home here too.


It was a really tough decision for me to rank the two houses I rushed during preference round. I was so thankful that I loved both and would be happy with either. Due to the emotional experience and personal connection I felt, I decided to rank New York first and Virginia second. I was so excited for bid day because I knew I would be running home to somewhere I loved and somewhere I was loved!


1. New York

2. Virginia

Bid day quickly arrived the next morning! I was so excited because I knew I was going home to somewhere I loved! My group was one of the first to get their bids and as my shirt was placed in my hands, I was so nervous! We counted down to ten and I opened my t-shirt! It was.....Virginia!!!! I am now a proud new member of Kappa Kappa Gamma!!!!!!!
