Riddle Me This GDIs Posted on 06-10-2005

Just at what point do you expect to meet a challenge in your pursuit of a Greek Letter Organization? Is there some clearcut point where you feel that your mettle should be tested or do you envision the same process as if you were joining any other campus organization?

It should be tested, but I'm not in the position to say when or how it I hope that I have answered your questions :grin:

Since I'm about to graduate next May, I can only explain what challenges I expected instead of what I expect. :sad: I guess this doesn't apply to me that much. Anyway, the challenge I expected in my wonderful pursuit of a BGLO would be if I had to give up my individual style (i.e. my natural hair, lose weight, etc.) Also, I do believe that my mettle should be tested, but not to extreme lengths (which I won't get into.) Not to sound like I'm Greek, but these are BGLOs; once you're in, you're in for life. There's no switching around different orgs and whatnot. Prospects like myself should be tested some sort of way to see if the org (and/or being Greek, in general) is for us. Now that's my 2 cents.

Thanks for the compliment, Kenya! I didn't want to come off pretending as if I know everything about Greek life, or worse. I'm going by what Greeks have told me in the past. :grin:

I can't really speak for anyone else but me personally I feel that I met a small challenge when I was first introduced to greek life. Which was almost two years ago. My first challenge and to me the most difficult of all was doing my research to find what was truly in my heart. When i first started my research I thought there were only two sororities (the AKA's , and the Delta's) Now two years later I feel that I have learned so much and I still continue to research almost everyday. I also feel a challenge everyday when I go to a party or just out on the campus and I see the woman of XYZ sorority which I am interested, and I feel a little pain when I think about how bad I want to be apart of something so great. Thats just the mental challenges which to me are the hardest to overcome.... I feel that other challenges should come immediately because it seperates the men from the boys... well in my case the woman from the girls. It's important for a person to want to join an organization to uphold it's principals and everything else that it stands for. I would never want to join something just for letters or colors because if the organization doesn't stand for something other than that then it's no point in me being in it. As far as relating greek organizations to any other on campus organization.... I'd have to say that it doesn't compare. Being "greek" is definitely something that you live with for the rest of your life and it shouldn't be handed to you like a present on christmas day it should be worked for... and deserved. Now thats my opinion and I'm entitled to it.

In my opinion, I believe that when I first became interested in greek life I knew that challenges were ahead. As the poster before me said, I really think that doing research on all the different organizations and finding the one that i was truly and genuinely interested in was a challenge. So looking back to when I first started researching, I didnt know at what point I was going to meet a challenge but I knew that challenges were ahead. Looking back, now I realize that, that was a challenge. I also believe that my mettle should be tested. I don't want to sound like im Greek but Greek life to me is a lifestyle, when u become greek ur greek for life. I don't envision becoming greek and joining other campus org's to have the same process at all. Thats all :-)
