What to do if you don’t get into a sorority


Greek like is a big part of the college experience if you’re into that kind of thing. It can seem really lucrative and look like a lot of fun, however, joining a sorority isn’t always the easiest thing to do, and sometimes people just don’t make the cut. Don’t let it get you down, after all, it just means you have more free time to meet more like-minded people doing something more fun.

Don’t let it get to you

The first thing you’re going to feel if you don’t get into a sorority is rejection, but really you have nothing to worry about. It’s probably for the best that you didn’t get in, the process has been known to be a long, drawn out, and judgemental one; there are definitely better ways for you to spend your time. It might not seem it at the time, but so many people that were rejected from their sorority have found that it was actually the best decision that was made for them.

Join a different club or society

There are so many activities you can choose from while you’re at college. Instead of investing your time into trying to impress other people and partying, you could meet new people and learn something awesome too. Whether it’s sports, photography, or something subject-related. What’s fantastic about this is that you will automatically meet more like-minded people, and you will get to learn or develop your skills. The best part is, you will also get to go out partying with the friends you make at the groups, but you won’t have to worry about coming across in a particular way.

Start your own society

If Greek life is something you have always looked forward to, then it doesn’t have to end there, you could start your own society. Sure, it won’t be the same as joining a well-established sorority, but that’s probably a good thing. You may find that a lot of people would be interested in a stress-free society where you get to enjoy partying and company without any of the social anxieties that come with it.

Consider trying to join again

If it’s really the kind of thing you can’t live without, and the other options don’t sound appealing, then you could consider trying to join a sorority again. Some previous sisters have suggested that you should give every house a chance and not put all your eggs into one basket, so to speak. You may want to do a bit of networking before you try and join again, but if you really want, you can give it a go. However, just remember that it’s a tough process, and if you don’t make the cut, it most certainly does not mean you’re not good enough, it just means you were meant for something else.

Have the best time you can

At the end of it all, you’ll realize that joining a sorority isn’t the be all and end all, there is a whole load of amazing people and things to do without pledging yourself to an exclusive group of girls. In fact, you will be inclined to meet so many more people if you get out there since you won’t be caught within the confines of your particular group.

There are so many things to do at college, and the important thing is that you try and enjoy it as best you can because afterward, everything will be different.
