Before I came to college, just like most girls will tell you, they never imagined they would be in a sorority. In my mind, I was nothing like a sorority girl, the only image I had of this community was portrayed through television shows and movies. But, not long within my freshman year, I started to meet some of Longwood’s finest Greek members, and I started to see what Greek Life at Longwood was really about.
At the beginning of my second semester, I found a home in Alpha Delta Pi. During recruitment, everyone seems to use the phrase “find your home,” but nobody actually ever defines what this means. While a house is a physical structure, a home is a feeling - that feeling you get when your parent hugs you after a long day, or a friend gives you a smile and wave in the moment when you need it most.To me, Greek life means having a home on campus. My sorority is my home, they’re my comfort, they’re my family. When I’m going through trials in my life, my sisters are there, they’re a home to come home to after a long day. I’m forever thankful for being a part of this sisterhood, and a member of the Greek community as whole. Thank you, Greek life for giving me a home.
