Post I wish...

Just some thoughts I've been having over the past few days as a result of reading this and other message boards....

I wish you'd ask if I'm active in my chapter rather than just noticing my letters.

I wish you'd ask how my chapter is participating in one of our National projects rather than if we're stepping in the next show.

I wish you'd ask how hard I'm working for my Sorority rather than how hard I pledged.

I wish you'd stop being afraid of what will happen to you when you're online, nothing will happen to you if you don't want it to. Realize that I don't want a puppet or a lackey, I want a Soror with her own mind and her own will, a leader who knows how to follow when necessary.

I wish you'd tell me why you want to be in my Sorority rather than how wonderful you think we are.

I wish you'd stop worrying about our GPA requirement. Take that energy to the library and study.

I wish you'd stop thinking we "need" you. Realize we could decide not to bring in another new member and be just fine for the next 30-40 years.

I wish you'd realize it's better to be yourself than try to determine what I'm looking for in a candidate.

I wish you'd realize I have opinions, just as you have yours, and although you may not agree with what I'm saying, respect me because I'd have the guts to express myself.


I wish you'd realize that only GOD can judge me.

I wish you'd realize you cannot understand everything. Sometimes you have to have first-hand experience.

I wish you'd realize greeks are human before all else, just like you.

But most of all, I wish you'd get to know the person who is in the Sorority/Fraternity and stop trying to fit her/him into whatever stereotype you have in your mind. And Fraternity/Sorority members let's not forget: be true to yourself. We were individuals before we had letters.

I am in total agreement. Good words. I want to post them in our chapter room, but thought I would ask you if you minded before I did?
God Bless!

I don't mind at all. Anyone is welcome to pass it along, so long as my signature is attached

i whole heartedly agree! i have a wish as well. i wish prospectives would understand that no one is owed membership. no one's chapter is required to take line before you graduate or get your service done or raise your gpa or meet any of the requirements. finally regardless of your family ties, you are not ensured membership, you must stand on you own merit and prove yourself worthy.
