Exclamation Want to make more friends in Sorority

Hi guys, so I rushed as a freshman and got my first choice house! I was so excited and happy to meet everyone/participate...until the next recruitment yr. I felt too ugly to make friends with anyone because they're ALL beautiful. Anyways, I went idle(bare minimum participation, never did anything) the last two yrs and now I'm a senior this year, that has no friends in it, only a few girls that I seldomly talk to. I've felt a mix of, "I'm not good enough for this house, so why would they be my friends" and "it's too late for me". How can I rekindle past friendships and make new friends with my sisters in the sorority as a senior?? I love my sorority and wearing the letters, but I hate not having any friends. Any advice?

How do you go from rushing as a freshman to rushing as a junior?

Letís give Lilyy the benefit of the doubt and pretend she started over with a new major and got a bid. And just give advice for this kind of situation to people who might need it.

Itís never too late to get involved. Go to everything, volunteer and be helpful, and think positive. Donít put yourself down - it makes others extremely uncomfortable, as if you find them to be dolts for socializing with you.

When did I say I was a junior? I rushed as a freshman and have been apart of it for 3yrs. I am a senior now. If you don't have useful advice, please do not waste my or your time.

Exclamation

I apologize for not putting this in the original post I made for this(didn't think I would need to, but I forgot some of y'all don't have lives' and need to entertain yourselves somehow), but I am NOT Lily. I am her family member, the one who ACTUALLY encouraged her to rush. I did not want to make an account, so I am using hers. Lily did not end up in a house if y'all are that nosy/curious by the way. She joined a christian sorority. Anyways, advice for ME please. I rushed as a freshman and got into the house I wanted.

This is just way weird. Make your own account. What kind of family member are you, by the way.

Mercury is in retrograde. Six other planets recently went retrograde, FWIW. That excuses your rudeness, perhaps.

Well, this is certainly entertaining!

Whoever you are, you cannot simply use someone else's credentials here. Seems a lot like you are lying and trying to create excuses to cover all the information you posted before. You will not get the information that you seek with lies or being rude. Kind of seems obvious why you don't have a single friend in your sorority.

Is English your first language? "Seldomly?" You're in a sorority "that has no friends in it"?

OK, I call troll.

Whoa..... How did I miss last year's thread and this one?! GC had been boring for a while, but a few winners lately to remind me to stop by

Whoever you are, this ain't Greek Rank. Go back to GR. Maybe they will answer you.... Oh, no. Looks like no one will speak to you at all there.
