Note From Amanda: Thank you so much to Sloan of Getting The Bid for writing this wonderful guest piece. I found her blog recently on Pinterest, and I wanted to have her on The Happy Arkansan to share some actionable tips for those going through sorority recruitment in the coming months. Go check out her blog for some amazing sorority recruitment tips!
Social media is so important for on-campus groups these days. Especially if you are recruiting for a sorority or even a club for your major–social media is where it’s at. You want to utilize social media to connect with your alumnae, members, and potential members. What do you share there, though? Today on the blog I am going to share 31 things you can add to your group’s content calendar today!
Recruiting is a big part of keeping your organization alive, but social media goes far beyond that. It helps showcase to the campus community (and the larger city, state, and nationwide community) that there are student organizations doing amazing things for themselves and their communities.
I think that we have all had that group photo session. You know, the one where NO one is prepared to take the photo, no one knows how/where to line up, and there are a million things wrong with the layout of the photo. You know, the one where someone who is tall doesn’t want to get in the back of the photo, even though that’s the only logical place. Or, better yet, someone who is short doesn’t want to be in the front. Like, what are you five foot tall? Get in the freaking front.
Yeah, those photos usually end up disastrously. Today I am going to give you some great tips on creating a group shot that looks somewhat decent. This is perfect for you whether you are getting ready for a group shot of your sorority or just a regular campus organization.
So, I was going to share another article today, but I personally just had to write up this opinion piece today. Yesterday a Twitter moment showed up on my Twitter feed. This moment stated, “Is this the end of Greek life on college campuses?”
This breaks my heart.
As a proud alumna of Sigma Sigma Sigma, I couldn’t imagine my collegiate experience without my sorority. I have always been outspoken on my blog about my anti-hazing stance. It’s frustrating that some members of the Greek community don’t share this stance with me.
Today, I wanted to reach out to others in this community (new members, members, and alumnae alike) to share my personal thoughts on this and provide some solutions.
Not only should we chat about hazing but also the other things happening that are giving our organizations a bad name. It’s not just the hazing, it’s the insensitive parties, the underage drinking, and general negative experiences.
Colleges and college presidents are left wondering, “Is Greek life on our campus really worth it?”
So many people think that these things shouldn’t concern them if their organization isn’t doing anything wrong, but you definitely should. Before I joined Tri Sigma I knew nothing about the Greek alphabet. Now that I am not in college anymore, all the Greek letters are starting to blend together if it’s not a Sigma or something really obvious like an Alpha or a Tau. Unless you can read the Greek alphabet, it’s all Greek to you.
Bad sororities and fraternities impact EVERY GREEK ORGANIZATION. It doesn’t matter if you are a nationally recognized organization or a local one. You are impacted by what is happening. Having one bad organization on campus can impact every organization on campus, especially if Greek life gets shut down because of them.
