Welcome To My Greek House!

[dropcap]H[/dropcap]ave you ever wondered what the inside of a Greek house looks like? This month I will be tackling the task of introducing each individual Greek house for you.

“From the outside, you can’t understand it. From the inside, you can’t explain it.” With rush and pledge season quickly approaching, the pressure for each sorority and fraternity to gain new family members is pushing on their shoulders. The nerves for potential pledges, like yours truly, are at an all-time high. Every organization is different, and not everyone can fit in to every organization. With that being said, you should be able to tell where it is that you belong. The pressure to find out your “place” is probably the…
