We talk about that women aren't mature enough to make the decision to join the sorority without letting the tent talk and ranks affect them. Part of that onus has to sit on the parents. As an advisor, I have so many women that don't like a rule or something else that run to their parent and have their parent call me about it. These women are adults, so let them face the consequences of their choices. Sure, you can be there for them for comfort, but it's not your job to make things "right" in their eyes. I get that every parent wants their kid to get all they wish for in life, but in reality, that's not going to happen.

I'm sure there are plenty of open spots in IU sororities, but they just may not be at the house you were dead set to join. The top houses are not doing informal, and that's just more reality. Lots of moms say that their kid has a 4.0, is solving world peace and a supermodel to boot, but trust me, so are most of the women going through recruitment. Whatever the reasoning, these women got what they got, and if they want to be Greek, they can stay in the process and see how it works out, or they can drop and cry in their rooms that they aren't in top tier ABC.

Sorry, that last line was probably mean. I just had a rant
YES!!!!!!!!!

This made me LOL at my desk. There have been several times this year that I've had to remind my super special snowflake that every one of the women in her house is exactly as super special as she is. In high school, her achievements stood out but in her sorority? Not so much. It's been a good learning, growing experience.

... and I've not once called anyone to complain about it. I can't imagine the patience it takes to deal with those phone calls.

and text messages, and emails, and facebook messages, and Instagram messages, and rude facebook posts...
and if they don't get the answer they want then they call headquarters. Those people are the real saints.
