“So, you had a ritual last night, huh?”
“Yes, I did.”
“What did you do?”
“I can’t tell you. It’s my sorority’s ritual.”
“Why, what did y’all do? Play drinking games and then play Truth or Dare with some frat boys?”
“I can definitely tell you we didn’t do that. But I can’t say what we did do. It’s part of the everlasting bond of our sisterhood. It’s important.”
“Oh, come on, everyone knows it’s just a silly college thing. Tell me!”
Sorority ladies, how many times have you had this conversation with a non-Greek friend? Frustrating, isn’t it, not being able to explain what you actually do in ritual? So, tell them something else:
Tell them WHY ritual is important to you.
From April 1 through May 1 College Lifestyles™ is looking for classy sorority ladies to answer this question: Why is ritual important to you?
Maybe it helped strengthen the bond of your chapter during a time of struggle. Maybe it makes you feel connected to your sisters, even over summer break. The story, dear sisters, is yours. Here’s how to get started:
- Write your story, 400 – 600 words please. Save in a Microsoft Word document.
- Select four photos and save as jpegs to send with the article.
- Email all of the above to email@example.com with the subject line “Why Ritual is Important to Me.”
- Tell us your name, college/university, sorority and chapter – and your story, of course! If you’d like, include your Twitter handle.
We’ll let you know if we’ve selected your story for publication on the CL website. You’ll receive an email when your story is published with a link – share the link with friends, family and your sisters!
