Congratulations to your daughter and you! I lived at home and joining a sorority changed my entire college experience. I hope she has a wonderful time!

😁 After I started my story, I had the idea that I should have used Zeta symbols as the various chapters. But since I already had my theme, I stuck it out.

Daughter has a crown ring that her dad gave her a few years ago. (He says she's his princess.) But when she was getting ready for the first party and putting on jewelry, it dawned on me that it was a 5 pointed one. So I told her that she could look at it if she got super nervous during the parties and remember that she had a bunch of Zetas that were rooting her on to include a very excited mom. That made her tear up.

My alumnae chapter is probably going to pitch in and get her a letter shirt, but have the letters in Zeta colors as a little fun since she couldn't be a legacy, but we still love her lots and claim her unofficially.

I wasn't home yet, but my husband sent me a picture of her reaction when she stopped by the house to get a few things. She was so excited that we had done it. She even posted on Snapchat a picture of it with the caption "Best Parents!"

Aww....that is so sweet. Thank you for sharing the story and congratulations to your daughter!

Love that she had a good luck ring to remind her of all that were pulling for her. What a fun idea to have a letter shirt in your sorority colors.
