What is Big/Little week normally like?

I know I have had a lot of questions. I really thought that once recruitment was over, I wouldn't wonder about anything sorority related anymore. I was just wondering what Big/Little week is NORMALLY like? My daughter said this is their big/little week and that tomorrow is the reveal. I thought that you get notes or gifts or some sort of surprises during the week, but she hasn't heard anything at all from her Big. Is that normal? Maybe not all sororities do gifts? So far, this week has been non-eventful for her and with tomorrow being the reveal, I'm guessing that is all there is to it. Is that how some sororities do big/little week; just a reveal at the end of the week, but no surprises?

It is good for your daughter to have questions, since sorority life is something new for her and for you. Your daughter has only been a new member two weeks; most new members are initiated after six to eight weeks.

This may need to be a time for your daughter to experience sorority as it comes, rather than as she anticipates it will be based on what we on greekchat can tell her may occur. There are so many variables to Big/Little Reveals. Your daughter might best involve herself in the process by informing you in a phone call all about her new sorority big after she meets her.

That's good advice. Thank you. We'll see what happens! It's just been a lot at once and I'm still hoping she makes good friends. She did try out for "step show" and she made it which I'm hoping will help her get more involved in her sorority and make friends. I'll try not to worry so much! ��

It's odd. Others have received surprises and goodies this week. Today is the reveal and I'm afraid they might have overlooked matching her up with someone. It is what it is and I know she'll be ok with whatever she finds out. I was just excited for her to experience this week, but she's ok and happy to be part of it.

How big is her pledge class? 150-200 girls?

It's about half that size, but it's still large.

It seems odd that they could have overlooked her, even if it were larger so maybe she's getting a Big who's super busy and has overlooked these things - it happens, especially with girls who work a part-time job, have a heavy load of classes, etc.
