If you you’re ready to give up now, there’s a good chance you don’t want it bad enough…
I know it sucks seeing pictures of interests & members on instagram hanging out bc you’re left wondering “damn, where was my invite?”. I also felt like an outsider sometimes because I wasn’t as outgoing as other interests. I got to know most of the members of my chapter during and after the process because I only knew a few of them. The trick is to find one or two members that you’re comfortable with & get closer to them. They’ll be able to vouch for you when the time comes. Continue to try hanging out with everyone though.
Also, there are usually members of a chapter that most interests don’t reach out to for whatever reason (they live too far, they have kids, etc.) and they deeply appreciate it when interests take time out for them. Also, keep up the good work with staying on top of your requirements and initiating outings.
*Keep in mind that every org is different and these are my opinions :) Good luck!
Take as long as you need and research as many orgs other orgs as you want… this is a life long decision. Some members of my org were interests for years while others were only interests for a couple hours before going on to the next step.
Hi, I would prefer to answer your question privately. I promise to keep everything you tell me confidential so feel free to come off of anon =)
Yes, we make sure to keep Latin unity. If you’re talking about brother/sister relationships there’s Lambda Theta Phi fraternity and Lambda Theta Alpha sorority and Lambda Sigma Upsilon Fraternity and Mu Sigma Upsilon Sorority just to name two.
Also, Sigma Lambda Gamma sorority is not constitutionally bound to any other org but you’ll hear about FIRM Fam. This family consists of
Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Sigma Lambda Beta Fraternity, and Sigma Lambda Gamma Sorority.
