Missing your sorority sisters this summer? Leaving school does not mean you have to leave your sisters behind too. CL asked some fabulous co-eds how they rep their sisterhood over the summer.
“Have fun with texting – instead of ‘regular’ text – send each other pictures – if you see your sorority symbol, mascot, etc.” – Shelly Marie Redmond, CL Editor in Chief
Technology has made it easier than ever to connect with sisters over the summer. Applications such as Skype and Snapchat make it possible to connect face-to-face while in different locations.
“The fact of the matter is that our sisterhood is so strong that even with distance I know I can call anyone really when I need them. Thankfully we live in an age with social media and so much technology that even being hours away we are only a click, call, text, Snapchat or tweet apart.” Natalie Gordinier, Central Michigan University, Alpha Sigma Alpha
For those sisters who are not too far away from you, summer sister dates offer a great chance to spend quality time together away from the school setting. Pack a picnic, plan a weekend getaway, or meet for dinner one weekend for some good sisterly fun.
“I Snapchat a lot of my sisters who are far away, but some of us still get together. I plan on doing a beach day with my little soon!” –Caitlin Sawyer, Hofstra University, Phi Sigma Sigma
And what would a sister date be without a bright pair of sorority letters? Rep your sisterhood by proudly rocking those letters over the summer.
“I wear my sorority shirts all the time! Also, I Snapchat my sisters and we usually plan a dinner date or a weekend to all get together.” –Skylar Starbuck, New Mexico State University, Zeta Tau Alpha
As much as we all love escaping school for the summer, it can really bring sisters together and offer you a great chance to rep your sisterhood. Events on or around campus can be a great opportunity for you and your sisters to rep how awesome you all are. These events are also a great chance for you to get together mid-summer with your sisters.
“There are events like freshman orientations at school throughout the summer when we are all required to be in the same place, so we will usually plan to all have dinner together on those weekends.” –Andy Hitt, Georgia College and State University, Phi Mu
Being separated from your sisters over the summer can be difficult, but it can help strengthen your sisterhood and gives you a chance to proudly represent your sorority. Staying in touch with sisters over the summer is super important, so find which ways work best for your sorority and enjoy the sunshine while it last.
